Crazy Old Talking Tree Leaner

Have you ever heard tell of the Old Talking Tree Leaner? Well perhaps you have and perhaps not. Either way I am fixin' to tell you a thing or two about the critter.

The Old Talking Tree Leaner is a strange character who is some sort of a tree parasite with the ability to talk non stop for long periods of time. There are those who ask where does he get his food? The Old Talking tree Leaner gets his nourishment from the boredom of his victims. The more bored you become the more energy he draws in.

Why, you may ask, hasn't the Old Talking Tree Leaner been more closely examined? Perhaps even video taped? Well, the things natural defense mechanism is its ability to bore a person out of their wits. It can literally turn a grown man into a drooling aimless zombie-like shell. Many are doomed to stumble around repeating some of the things that Old Tree Leaner said... over and over...

Just remember, if you are out walking in the woods and you see this crazy lookin' old dude leaning up agin' a tree just keep on going. Don't even let that old fellow fool you.

Read more about the Old Talking Tree Leaner if you dare (or you are really really bored)


  1. The trick to getting away from the Talking tree leaner is to escape the boredom. Look around for anything to entertain. Go to that happy place in your mind. Or even try dancing a jig and singing a song. Sing so loudly that you cannot hear the tree leaner talking and you can escape if you are wise.

  2. I have heard of this before! My grandpa use to tell us about the talking tree leaner when I was a kid.

    I have a question is there one tree leaner or is this something that there are more than one of? My grandpa was from Missouri and grew up near where Rolla is. In his "stories" he mentioned a man who was found literally bored to death.

  3. When are we going to see some sort of picture or something? It is very difficult to believe without seeing an actual photo.

  4. I WAS bored so I decided to check out the story for a laugh. I dont know if this is true or not but I have heard it somewhere else too.
