How rude!

This time of year i see all the pine trees giving me the finger. Am i insecure? I can't walk by one of them without seeing the universal sign for "fuck off."

Now i see them everywhere. Tell me you can see them too.

Are you hearing voices as well?

meno said...

Wha? WHO SAID THAT?

Lynn said...

Either they're giving you the finger, or they're all very happy to see you.

Mignon said...

That's what I was thinking, Lynn. Be flattered, Meno, not offended. Schwing!

SUEB0B said...

I thought I was paranoid. Yeeps.

Mama P said...

I see big dick. And I likey.

flutter said...

LMAO. Oh my word, what foul mannered little bastards!

mrschili said...

Yeah; you know what? I saw vaguely phallic things, too. The effect would have been better had there been TWO pine cones at the base, but my (pretty vivid) imagination took care of most of that....

Toni said...

Great- now I see them!

Mona Buonanotte said...

I always thought they were signing, "Fack You" to winter.

Bob said...

they're all proud to see you. Extremely proud.

Caro said...

I'm reminded of M.Kennedy flipping us the bird! Lucky you, that means you have a yard full of those gorgeous pinecones.

QT said...

I have to throw my hat into the phallic ring as well. I guess you really ARE paranoid - but apparently also hot as hell!

liv said...

what mama p said. it's all very phallus oriented to me. that from someone who's not getting any. ever.

kerewin said...

Oh geez, thanks a lot! Now I will think that, too. It is kinda funny, though.

Maggie said...

Well my imagination was inspired by the bottom picture - I see a crowd of people at a concert holding up lighters. See how famous you are?

Dick said...

Meno, think of a goeyduck. I like Mona Buonanotte's idea of them sending a message to winter. Spring has Sprung!

meno said...

lynn, hmm, i hadn't looked at it that way. Little weenies waving HI. :)

mignon, so it's just a friendly little greeting huh?

suebob, you ARE!

mamap, i think you might need to visit with the husband!

flutter, exactly!

mrs.chili, I took a picture of one with two pine cones and then decided that it didn't illustrate the point i was making, but another point entirely, the one you are making!

toni, ha ha! Got ya.

mona, but.....but....it's all about ME isn't it? I like that image, think i'll adopt it.

bob, stand up and be counted proud!

caro, see, they do look little little flipping birds.

qt, paranoid AND hot! I'll take it. :)

liv, oooooh. Sorry. Your day (or you) will come.

kerewin, happy to contribute to the joy of your Seattle springtime walks.

maggie, now why did i see little fingers and you saw a much nicer image? I guess you get what you deserve.

dick, teeny tiny little goeyducks. Spring, and these little weenies, has sprung. :)

Tink said...

I totally see a cock and balls in the first shot. You're so hot, even the plants want to "greet" you!

Have a great weekend.

jen said...

meno. your power.

it's growing. maybe the trees are just saying "see ya, fuckers" in the best possible way.

patches said...

I don't feel so bad about referring to our blue star juniper as "that little muff tree" anymore.

The Mister brought home two orchids, wonder what he's thinking?

meno said...

tink, yeah, but they want to greet everyone. Sluts!

jen, thank god, i thought i'd lost my power! :)

patches, "that little muff tree", oh, i need a picture! Why don't you ask the Mister??? Bet he'll tell you.

egan said...

Since I live in your neck of the woods, I can totally relate. The Pinus species is well known for their gesturing abilities. We had three of these such trees in front of my mom's house. They're vicious bastards. Since I can remember I've always felt this species had something against me.

Mother of Invention said...

Thy're certainly looking phallic and prickly! (Hehe!)

meno said...

egan, so you take it personally too!

MOI, heh heh, you said prick!

Anonymous said...

Oh, for Pete's sake! Why'd ya have to make me look at it like that? Now I'll never see a pinetree the same way...and then someone said it looks like big dick??? Cece

meno said...

Cece, ha ha! I love to share my view of things. :)

TDharma said...

perhaps all of nature is giving us the finger, flippin the bird, performing the highway salute. We deserve it. Even my Prius cannot assuage my guilt. Gulp.

GEWELS said...

I'm with Anon- I will never look at pine trees in the same way.
My mood will determine which way I will be viewing them, however.

Anonymous said...

I could really use a big dick right now...pine tree? Seen any around?? hahah Cece

DDM said...

*Snort!* Awesome. I saw a phallus, and THEN I saw the flipper finger, rofl. What does that say about me?

Jhianna said...

heh, I'm with DDM - I thought it was happy to see you, but now all I can see is it giving you the finger.
