Why the Long Face?

Headline: 'Ghost tree' forms human face

Scores of people are flocking to a village in northern Malaysia to see a betel nut tree which has sprouted a human-like face.

Human-like? Maybe in Malaysia, but I don't know anyone with a face like that. Okay, maybe Celine Dion.

But other than her, I think someone may have been stuck in the birth canal a little too long - and then got hit by a steamroller on the way home.

Those guys better call up a twitch doctor to rid themselves of that ghost tree very soon, especially before it decides to team up with Anne Geddes for a photo shoot.

Maybe Ents aren't so far fetched after all.

For fun lets fly over and hide a boom box that plays Dions "Heart will go on" everytime someone walks up to the tree.

Looks like a character from Fragglerock or something.

DWO, Beth: funny, but that may be too scary!

Metal Mark: either that or that tree from the Wizard of Oz. Freaky looking either way.

Transport it to my backyard; I think I see my ecological mirror image.

I think it's time I took a leaf from your book and branched into some comedy. Yew have me laughing everytime I log on to your site.

The image does look like Celine. Is that a Canadian Redwood ?

Ben, how very nice of you to say - - but I'm thinking since it's supposed to be a *ghost tree*, it must be BamBOO! :)
