Pics at the link.... and they talked to "Susan Wood"? Priceless.


Tempe, AZ -- A dead tree is creating quite a stir in one neighborhood in Tempe these days. Neighbors say the carved woodwork went up in the backyard of a home in the 2000 block of E. Dunbar a few weeks ago.
"They carved it, all by themselves it looks like," said Susan Wood, who lives nearby.
"I'm a little bit speechless," said Wood. "A little bit funny but probably something that needs to be taken down."
"I'm thinking it looks a little phallic," said Tim Sunday who was driving by.
"It's 8 feet tall," said Aaron Freidman who walks his dog by the carved object daily, " It's a big tree that was carved into a male phallus."
The City of Tempe received at least one anonymous complaint about the carved tree last week. The owner was issued a violation notice for having a dead tree, said Jeff Tamulevich, code compliance administrator for the City of Tempe.
"The violation was served," said Tamulevich.
Neighbors say the tree was dead and unattractive, before it was carved up. The wood now peaks over the side of a cement wall in the owner's backyard where it is visible to people walking by.
The homeowner was not available for comment right away.

Now I want to watch "The Evil Dead", where the tree sexually assaults the chick. (I think that was the film...)

Several Sapsuckers have been seen around the tree.

Neighbors plan to show a photo of Rosie O'Donnell to the tree with the assumption that it will immediately fall over.
If that fails they plan to douse it in cold water.

Wouldn't you now need a rabbi to prune it?

I cannot believe the woman they interviewed was named Susan Wood. I was waiting for them to interview Richard Squeezer next...

This thread is win on so many levels, the starter pic is so grossly artful as to not be ignored... emphasized to perfection by the neighbors air duct, yet we have the Industrial Age home air unit juxtaposing & somehow threatening, the barren tree...

edit* i smell a photoshop.
