Music of the Trees

While walking through Golden Gate Park in San Francisco , a man came upon another man hugging a tree with his ear firmly against the tree.  Seeing this, the first man inquired,  “Just out of curiosity, what the heck are you doing?”

“I’m listening to the music of the tree,” the other man replied.

“You’ve gotta be kiddin’ me.”

“No, would you like to give it a try?”

Understandably curious, the man says, “Well, OK…” So he wrapped his arms around the tree and pressed his ear up against it.  Once the first guy had done this, the other guy slapped a pair of handcuffs on him, took his wallet, jewelry, car keys, then stripped him naked and left.

Two hours later another nature lover strolled by, saw this guy handcuffed to the tree stark naked, and asked, “What the heck happened to you?”The victim told the new the whole terrible story about how he got there.  When he finished telling his story, the new guy shook his head in sympathy, walked around behind him, kissed him gently behind the ear and said,  “This just ain’t gonna be your lucky day,  cupcake…”
