Live Christmas Trees
“Hoom, hm, get this rope off me.”
I’d be surprised that being the evergreen cousin of the “Peanuts” kite-eating tree.
So Christmas is about who makes it out alive now.
It’s the Christmas Ent.
A little sprucing up will do pine fir now.
It’s Mr and Mrs Fir’s daughter, Connie.
Does it eat squirrels?
Live, yes. Docile and benevolent, no.
Just returned from a southern vacation: Tan ’n balmy
And the best thing is, when you get it home, it can decorate itself.
Does it water itself and clean up needles after they drop?
Everyone needs a Firry pet.
Always wondered where SNL got their killer Xmas trees during that first season. Now I know.
O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum.
Treebeard seems to have fallen on hard times…
I want one of those!
I’m absolutely all for Truth in Advertising!
Now that’s a tree I would to love have… doubles as great home protection! (At least I hope so!)
Those would make for excellent sentinels.
Bet it gives new meaning to “shed.” Think it might cough up a fir ball?
Am I the only one who read “Children of Green Knowe” when I was a child? Killer trees were around long before SNL.
