Default The danger of tree hugging

While walking through park woods near San Francisco a man came upon another man hugging a tree with his ear firmly against the tree.

Seeing this he inquired, Just out of curiosity, what the heck are you doing?

I'm listening to the music of the tree, the other man replied..

You gotta be kiddin' me.

No, would you like to give it a try?

Understandably curious, the man says, Well, OK --so he wrapped his arms around the tree and pressed his ear up against it. With this the other guy, slapped a pair of handcuffs on him, took his wallet, jewelry, car keys, then stripped him naked and left.

Two hours later another nature lover strolled by, saw this guy handcuffed to the tree stark naked, and asked, what the hell happened to you?

He told the guy the whole terrible story about how he got there.

When he finished telling his story, the other guy shook his head in sympathy, walked around behind him, kissed him gently behind the ear and said,

This just ain't gonna be your day, is it cupcake?

Reminds me of a time I sold a stand of really fine timber. The buyer walked up to one of those beautiful high-dollar White Oaks, put his arms around it and humped it a few times. I said what in the hell are you doing? Just demonstrating through a symbolic gesture my love of --- well, money (i.e.,valuable logs), he says. I did not need any hand cuffs cause he already paid me a fortune.

When you are in the tree business, a walk through the woods looks a lot different. Sometimes all you can see is dollar signs.
