As Scary As The Shining's Topiary

I was thumbing through the mail this afternoon, innocently enough, only to be frightened by this evil, leering tree that popped out at me.

The ad said that the Tree Face "livens up your yard," but if the trees in my yard ever came to life looking like that, I would move quickly before they could steal my soul.

Why would you put something like that in your yard? So very, very creepy.

All I can think of to say to a face like that is Yipes! I'm sure that thing would scare my pet rocks.

Can you imagine stumbling home intoxicated and walking smack dab into a tree that looked like that? Oh man would there be some screaming!

don't hate me, but i actually think it's kind of cute, in a teddy bear picnic sort of way. no way on heaven or earth i'd have it in MY yard, but still.....

Not so much creepy as dorky. Yeah, no wayh in hell I'd have it in my yard, any more than I'd ahve a gnome or other signs of Uberdorkdom. Ents are creepier, and the topiary from the BOOK The Shining are actually soul rippin' scary. This is the sort of thing that would make you want to join the dog in territory marking...
