Worst. Slideshow. Ever.

So I know the Urinal-Sentinel isn't on the cutting edge of reporting, but sometimes they just plain crack me up. They ran a story about the State of Michigan losing a bunch of trees to a bug that came over from Asia.

Interesting and all, but apparently, someone was too bored with that, and thought that the story needed a slideshow to go along with it. The link to click on the slideshow says, "View the damage caused by emerald ash borer in Michigan". I envisioned pictures of half missing forests, grotesque trees with holes in the middle of them... that sort of thing.

Instead, the slide show is of a very suburban area, and pictures of stumps from trees that have been cut down - one tree with no leaves, and a patch of ground where a tree USED to be.

Someone has way too much time on their hands. But that's only part of the reason I'm sharing this with you. Enjoy the slideshow - it's less than a minute long. Especially enjoy the second to last picture, the one with about ten seconds left in the show.

You're welcome.

Doesn't he work out at the club?? Oh no, that must be his twin.

Thanks, I'm never getting that minute back now. ;o)

So, you take the stumps that have the bugs in them and dispose of them next to MORE TREES?!?!

Is this like having to go to your neighbor's house and watch their vacation slides? :o(

So we won't be using this when we work on the wedding slide-show?
