Proof That God Confuses Plants with Animals

I feel sorry for God. It can’t be easy creating and sustaining the universe. What happened here, I think, is that He thought, “Well, it’s time to make a new plant. I sure do like orangutans.”

    Pay close attention to those plants. If ever lost and in the need of fire that is great stuff to get a fire going. In fact if you walk by it to briskly it will torch the place.

    Hmmm, maybe not so much on the braiding then. Maybe I mistook "please braid me" for "please feed me or I'll try to eat your hand."

    more cool photography. And please do watch out for the wildlife- wouldn't want you eaten. How else would we enjoy your presence if you were?

    That one in front is just screaming to be braided.

    Maybe somebody buried their dead puppy there and it's growing back?

    It's a gross thought but have to admit it's the first thought I had!

    So, that building … it's a nuclear reactor or something?

    Looks like radioactive mutant stuff to me!
