A tree surgeon . . . NOT!

Following my rather sad previous post, I thought a bit of levity might lighten the atmosphere - so here it is.

This video was taken in South Africa, where an enterprising soul decided to pull down a palm tree using a pickup truck.

Unfortunately . . . well, why spoil it? You can see the results for yourself.


Hat-tip to David Z. for the e-mail.

It's rather pathetic that not one single man there could see the simple geometry of the situation.

My wife took one glance and said "Ohmygod, it's going to fall right on the truck!"

According to the comments, the cameraman asked "Now where are you going to jump if that thing comes down?"

The amazing thing is there's not even one bottle of beer visible.
