Topic tags/keywords: burl humor question

I’ve been working on my dream shop and came across this burl in the basement. I didn’t notice until I carried it upstairs that it has a “unique” characteristic. I gave my burl a name, but am looking for other suggestions. Any ideas out there???

I’d call it “Richard and the twins”.

If you threw it in the wood stove would it be “Great Balls of Fire”?

To me it looks like a pair of cheeks (not the facial type)

Isn’t that a rare sample from the morning wood tree?

Richard, I never thought of it as a boy burl. I always thought of it as a gurl burl:) But I like that it can be either or!
I named it Beyonce. My daughter thought it looked like JLO. But she said they both have burly bums so it could be either.

I’m asking that this thread be killed dead. Too much off-topic crap. I thought we were here to discuss woodies, I mean hard woodies, I mean—oh Hell. You guys are awful.
