Tree Image in Tree
A conker tree in Holdenhurst, Dorset was cut down. Inside one of the branches was found an image of a tiny tree. Tree experts say that the brown mark is caused by disease -- that the heart of the wood was beginning to rot. Personally, I don't think the mark looks like a tree. I think it looks like Jesus (wearing a tree costume). Link: The Daily Mail.

I was wondering if the tree (costume) image looked like the tree before it was cut down. Maybe it foresaw its own death!

It is Jesus related!

He was nailed to a bit of wood.. wood comes from trees.. therefore Jesus is real!

Facts mate! Facts!

There's a tree outside with a knot in it that looks like a complete vagina with clitoris and all. Sometimes, sap comes out of it too. Its scary. I wonder if anyone else in town notices it and laughs as much as i do?

I said i would take a picture of it and i keep forgetting. Why do i keep forgetting.

You're thinking about this like a human; but it is both a tree and Jesus, in a way: wouldn't the trees' savior be a tree himself?
