Buy “Trees…” online

September 24, 2010

The Internet is a wonderful thing.  Not only does it allow you to see videos of various animals fighting various other animals, and not only does it allow you to share food-based erotica with people around the globe, but it also allows you to give me money.  That is a special achievement, to be sure.
