They make me really nostalgic for my childhood. NOT FOR THAT REASON.
They make me think of my white easter shoes getting all muddy, and sidewalk chalk, and how I made this boy Brandon kiss me in my Little Mermaid tent because I wanted to catch his chicken pox.
I just walked under a bunch of those trees and got.showered by their blossoms. It was floral bukkake.
I'm so creepy, sorry. I feel like I've been repressing my inner creep lately.
Chestnut trees smell like semen in Springtime. And unleash their spiny balls upon us in the Fall... with delicious result.
Why do they still plant those white flowering jizz trees everywhere. its AWFUL. we had them in my neighborhood growing up too. do people not realize they stink?
They're actually pear trees.
Well that's surprising considering pears don't taste like spunk. hrm
I left that one wide open. damn.
There is one down my street and I have to giggle whenever it's fragrant. It's just a tad more bleachy, though. I think it's some kind of juniper bush. Could there be one than one kind of tree like that?
bradford pear by any chance? they don't actually have fruit on them. and they have spewey smell to them...
aaahhh- reminds me of my childhood as well...
(omg, that was so fuckin' funny)
The linden tree!
Branwell that is too good. IT IS JUST TOO GOOD!
*bows to excellence*...
Well, I didn't DO it.
Hmmm, most people think linden trees smell quite nicely though? There IS a flowering tree that smells pretty awful, like skunk or something, but I'm not sure that's it....
dude, it is the bradford pear tree. the blossoms have been compared to "rotting fish" so, maybe not semen, but dirty vag instead.
there are tons of those lining sidewalks in brentwood and franklin tn, and it was sick.
there were a few at the university where i went, and i think they're gone now.
they aren't very strong trees, so every time storm season blew through, many of them would get broken in half or torn over and would have to be replanted.
they're cheap, and they grow fast, but they're weak (of course) and they're pretty, so that makes them popular for decor- but good lord, some botanist needs to work on fixing that smell.
@Little p Ah, yes indeed. Urban Dictionary agrees. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=bradford pear
that video was amazing
Seriously, Mitchell and Webb are probably somewhere in my 5 favorite sketch comedy groups of all time. Maybe top 3. (After Python and Mr. Show... but I can't think of anyone else I'd definitely rank ahead of them.)
what channel is that on? (or are they DVDs?)
I don't get BBC anymore and I seriously miss them... and Catherine Tate... and the IT Crowd.
okayokay! (and graham norton. don't judge.)
I don't know if they air in the US -- they have three seasons on DVD, and I think there's a fourth now? Don't know if it's aired yet.
They also do a show called "Peep Show" -- a half-hour sitcom, which is different but also really good. I know the first five seasons (x 6 episodes) of that are on Hulu. Or were last month. I probably should get around to watching Season 5 before they pull it...
Haha, I had no idea my cum tree thread was still thriving! Wow.
Branwell, that video made my evening. Srsly.
last nights episode of Ugly Americans was about "treegasm"
BBC America doesn't show the good NEW sketch comedy shows, it seems.
