Man Licks Tree. Man Licks Tree Really Hard. Man Licks Tree Really Long and Hard, And Calls It His "Honey Locust"

Posted by on Wed, May 2, 2012 at 4:20 PM

Filmed yesterday at 1:23 p.m. at Seattle's Westlake Center during the 2012 May Day protests

TREELICKER: "I dunno what the fuck they're doing." [points at protesters]
BOY WITH CAMERA: "So you're NOT part of the protest at all?"
TREELICKER: "I don't fuckin' do that..." [back at tree, caressing it] "It's the way I do it man, both hands..." [boy walks away]
TREELICKER: "It's my honey locust."

The Stranger OFFICIAL HOW-TO GUIDE:
1. First things first—take your socks off.

2. Secure yourself to that (mmm-mmm!) shexy-tree.

3. Kiss, lick, and kiss it—until your face turns blue (or you get a splinter). He didn't - I asked.

The Crown Royal reticule is a nice touch.

I see him at Unicorn all the time. Don't know his name though.

Also, my husband got a pic of the aftermath of the tree encounter: https://instagr.am/p/KGunudpdXT/media/?s…

Gross.

Two questions:
1. Why is the tree blue?
2. Was anyone else really uncomfortable while watching that?

Another problem with left-leaning protests. They let the mentally ill co-opt their event.

@8: You haven't paid any attention to the teabaggers, I see.

The blue trees are honey locusts - nontoxic, but not sweet like honey, and you don't get high off of them.

Suddenlyorcas dear, when it's a unified assortment of the mentally ill, no one notices the individual crazies. That's how the tea baggers get away with it.

Honey locusts have seed pods that are sweet. Eating azurite might give you copper poisoning, though.

@8 & 13: why are you assuming this person is "mentally ill?" dude is probably just tripping on acid and letting his freak flag fly. let him do his thang.

Maybe this guy knows something we don't. Maybe it's the most amazing thing in the world. So good you'll stand on a trashcan in bare feet and lick blue colored trees for hours at a time.

Alright, maybe I'm being a little dense here, but how did he get himself and the tree inside the sweatshirt? The sweatshirt doesn't appear to have a zipper. Is the tree not planted in the ground? Do the branches not splay out at the top?
