Above you see a wooden sculpture of a tornado

It is a wood tornado.

The word for ‘wood’ in Esperanto is ligno

Ligno-tornado means wood turning, (like on a lathe) in Esperanto.

Ligno-tornado also means ‘wood tornado’, (like the funnel storm) in Esperanto. (context would differentiate the meanings.)

Cue laugh track.

Hmm. I wonder if there’s a laugh track on YouTube I can link to.

Dave,

I like the Esperanto pun. So, does the artist/wood sculptor speak Esperanto? ;-)

I don’t know anything about the artist. I found the picture while googling ‘wood tornado’. It’s unlikely the artist speaks Esperanto though, (but you never know).

Gotta admit .. it IS a cool piece of art. And it looks ENORMOUS hanging from the rafters like that. Must weigh a ton (or three)

I added the link to the laugh track after Candy said something. Originally it was just an acknowledgment of a joke unworthy of laughter.
