Trees Grow from Mayonnaise

A very good friend of mine is always coming up with the latest this, and the latest that.  He will usually preface it by saying,

          "THEY say..............." 

I tease him about it all the time, asking,

          "Who are THEY?"

Personally, I think  THEY are the tiny, minuscule, little "people" living inside your computer, gathering information, and posting it on the Internet.  I believe that for every thought that you have, these "people" will gather up (or make up) information in support of your theory, no matter how ridiculous it is.  Want to prove that dogs can talk, the earth is not really round, and the sky is the color "Atomic Tangerine"?  I'll bet you can find something on the Internet to back it up.  Those little people are hard at work, 24/7. 

While I would love to write more on this subject, I need to go search the Internet.  The last conversation I had with my friend, I told him that I would find proof that "trees grow from mayonnaise".  Oh, and, in case you were wondering, "Atomic Tangerine" really is a color.  I looked it up on the Internet (  It is Crayola crayon color #6 (formerly known as "Ultra Yellow").  Seems Prince is not the only one with a former name. 

Now, back to my task.  "Trees grow from mayo, trees grow from mayo, trees grow from mayo..................."

  1. I like the idea of little people in my computer. I wish there really was a Frosted Mini-Wheats guy though- he's my favorite.

  2. Actually, it would be "SWEET" : )

  3. All I know is that "they" all live on the East Coast. I imagine little, rich men who look like the Monopoly man, all wearing suits.
