Your comment about the "...tree being unavailable for questioning"...... is NOT funny. What if someone was in the area or walking by that tree with these idiots throwing knives?? Would you find that to be funny then? Crime or suspcious actions are NOT funny because someone usually gets hurt in the process. Save your humor for a comedy club, Joseph! What an irresponsible remark to make.

I loved the remark!!! Life is too serious. Get a sense of humor!
Shawna April 27, 2011 at 02:48 PM
I loved the tree comment too! And I'm sure if somebody was hurt the comment wouldn't have been made.
Marie Grecco April 27, 2011 at 03:22 PM
I agree with Shawna & Fred, that was pretty funny.

Is this lady for real?
Erin April 27, 2011 at 10:31 PM
I liked the tree comment as well - the lady complaining above is probably the one that called.
Markus Arelius May 11, 2011 at 04:32 PM
The tree in fact did come in for questioning days later. His official comment on the incident? "Ow."

Linda, quit hugging trees and get a sense of humor.
