G8 Leaders Mock My Profession

While meeting in Japan today the worlds most powerful idiots, clowns and war-criminals tried their hand at what I do for a living.

Maybe he had gone to fetch a hose to water their plantings in. I wonder if they used any mycorrhizal inoculums? I can tell you that from where I sit the root crown on W’s tree looks way too low…
