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
he 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. With 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?’
He told the guy the whole terrible story about how he got there.
When he finished telling his story, the other 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 day, cupcake…’
