Peach Tree Of Death In West U

You don't mess with the fruit tree in this West U front yard, by God, or you will pay the price.

The ever-delightful Swamplot blog posted this picture, sent in from a fan. It seems a little wimpy, since it involves high-tech cameras instead of "This tree protected by me, Smith, and Wesson," but after all it is the tony confines of West U.

The homeowners probably hired an illegal immigrant to sit around with a camera, come to think of it.

The commenters on Swamplot were not impressed:

-- "BTW, squirrels can't read."

-- "I love the almost biblical Old Testament feel to the sign, coupled with high tech modern monitoring, God would be proud."

-- "I really want to put a sign facing the "Camera" which screams, 'I drink your fruit smoothie! I drink it up!'"

Oh, and they schooled Swamplot on the difference between a fig tree and a peach tree.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
