A Real Thong Tree

Not long ago, Pablo wrote about possible Thong Trees at his properties. I had never heard of such a thing, although that is understandable as I believe there may be other things I don't know...yet.

According to Pablo, the first people in the area used leather thongs to force a tree to lean in a certain direction. This was for the purpose of marking trails. A young tree would be staked into the desired postion and held there by the thongs until it grew into that position.The bent tree would then act as a living sign post pointing the way to go. How elegant and clever.

I am happy to announce that I have found evidence of this same activity on my property. I came across this Thong Tree while walking the northwest corner of my woodland. As you can see in the picture, a young oak has been thonged to mark some kind of trail.

Later today, after I get home from work, I will post the Girdle Tree I found.

You know I have to admit to looking around for thong trees the last time we walked around here... but I sure didn't find any that looked like that!!!

(If I did I'd be afraid to go any further...)

you're clearly on a roll fc. the underwear series, or perhaps, a bit more stately, the support series. i guess the classic query "jockey or boxer" should be amended to add "or thong."

thongs a lot. happy thongsgiving (oooh, i like that one!). thongs for the memory.

does that thong in your picture really have "git r done" on it?

thingfish23 said...

Ugh. Is there any escape from the cultural back-step that Git-R-Done represents? Is it really necessary for us to print it on THONGS for God's sake? How dismaying.

Truly, there's a gulf of difference between crackers and rednecks. The cracker is usually the one that doesn't leave his or her underwear in a tree after a public routing.

I hafta go shower now.

thingfish23 said...

Did I say "routing". Sorry. I meant "rutting". My bad.

OK - off to the shower now...

thingfish23 said...

OK - now that I'm done totally freaking out, please tell me that you didn't put those there for some reason, FC.

:-/

Rurality,
True, sometimes you just need to turn around and beat feet. This was a bit of a joke though, it's safe.

DPR,
Oh no, Thong You very much.

Thing,
Sit down and take a deep breath. It was just a joke. This is the first and only time that little patch of undies will ever be used for anything. I was just having some fun with the PABLO.
I think I rattled you...

...and then the silk stockings tree, and the bra tree....

Hoss,
Now, now...

pablo said...

Showing my naivete, I did not know what it was I was looking at in this photo.

Floridacracker said...

Pablo,
That's probably a good thing...

roger said...

ok. joke. so. whose? where did you get those? YOURS? oh no!!!!

Floridacracker said...

DPR,
They were payback from a friend for a joke I made. I didn't know what to do with them and then...THONG! It hit me like an elastic band...

thingfish23 said...

See - that's what I get for flyin' off the handle and being so opinionated. I'll mellow with age, I hope. I thought that was a sort of "found object" photo. I.e., I thought someone had really just left their skivvies hanging off of a public tree.

(wiping egg off of face)

It's a good thing my mouth is so friggin' big, otherwise it'd hurt more when my foot goes in there.

Floridacracker said...

Thing,
Not to worry mon, we have all probably found ...unusual things in the woods.

Hick said...

I was in the dark with Pablo. Not any more. Boy, I love these educational sites.

Heh!

Hick said...

Wait a minute. That last comment did not come out like I intended (blushes profusely). I meant that I did not know what that thing was until Thingfish enlightened me.

Apologies to Pablo.

Floridacracker said...

Hick,
That's as risque as it'll get on this site.
...at least it was empty.

Heh!

benning said...

We do not want ot know whose thong that is! No way!

Heheheee!
