Oct 8 2009Wow, That Was Sad: Tree Electrocutes Itself

This is a video of a tree which, unable to cope with the unruly birds and squirrels that have taken up residence in its branches, has decided to off itself with the help of a nearby power line. It's almost as painful to watch as your apartment building going up in flames because you were trying to grow pot in your closet. Almost. NOT THAT I'D KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THAT. Pfft, I went to D.A.R.E.!

Thanks to NUTZBABIE, who I would probably steer clear of.

I blame global warming :(

Hey cameraman, smart thinking. When I see a tree rubbing up cable lines, I to make sure to record it from a safe 10 yards.

zOMG FIRE in the TREEES aaaaahhhHHHHHH!!!

I love that they just stand around watching the tree rub against the power lines and waiting for it to burst into flames instead of...I dunno...calling the flipping fire department? Brilliant. The shouting and woo'ing was a nice touch, too.

dude this is less then a block away from my house the power went out after the second explosion

LOL 2 the 2nd time it buzzed and popped. I bet they peed a little.

Must See!!!

I'm sorry I mentioned him. Didn't mean to ruin everyone's day. :(

Hey, they get to see something so dangerous it's awesome, and their neighborhood is filled with the lovely sent of pine.:D

That`s not funny....

A holly bush in my front yard once OD'd on sleeping pills.

The holidays are hard on everyone.

"where's the fire department?" you need to call them and not just tape the disaster, idiots.

@13 I didn't think holly bushes could OD on pills, are you sure they just haven't worn off yet?

The holidays are hard on everyone

I agree....

The holidays are hard on everyone.

yes...yes they really are because remember kiddies, santa aint real..halloween was invented for child molesters, thanksgiving was a lie. And the easter bunnie only want's to devour your soul so that he may once again walk among the living

This isn't exactly what I meant when I said, "Who wants to burn some trees?"

Soooo.....am I in his will? Cuz, I'm really jonesen for acorns right now.

@15...

No, we got confirmation from a local florist. Plus, the holly bush made its intentions pretty clear in the note it left.

Happy *sniff* Thanksgiving, *sniff* everyone!

Trees suck anyway...they make it hard to see the rest of the forest.

The everyone are hard on holidays.

Why not call the fire department instead of standing there filming and going ''wooah'' like prepubescent idiots? Lame...

@24 damn I didn't know it was possible...

The holidays really are hard on everyone

to the nubs that think a video would be enjoyable with someone talking on the phone calling the fire dept. they were called already prior to the video. kthx.

@27
Thats weird, I thought everyone was just hard on the holidays.
I know I am when I see Mrs. Claus bending over in front of the fireplace. ;D

I think someone needs to start a website called "HEY JACK@$$, PUT DOWN THE F#$%ING CAMERA AND GET HELP." Wait, that's called break.com. Sorry.

Does this remind anyone else of the ending of The Amazing Colossal Man? Anyone?

Fine. I hate you all. I'm going to my room and taking the vodka with me.

@29 everyone IS hard on the holidays, precisely..... but you know that's because

The holidays are hard on everyone

@31

Hold up, princess. Just set the vodka back down, let's pour a couple of drinks and talk this whole 'Amazing Colossal Man' thing over.

The everyone are hard on holidays

I'm sure the fire department was on the way, along with the power company.

Idiots.

"it's just somebody else's property. we're not gonna worry about it."

I wish these kids would get to bed so I could burn some trees myself!!!

The holidays are really hard on people.

How many squirrels were harmed in the filming of this video?

Brujeria!!!!!

This is what happens when you don't pay your gambling bill. We'll take a tree a week, until you're paid up. Say hi to your mudda for us.

Do you smell that? It's the smell of birds. Melting.

Yess... the first stage of my plan is complete...
