May 14, 2010 – Dialing 555-PALM

May 14, 2010

I never thought anything of it until I took a second look.  A palm tree – in the desert!!!!  But not just any old palm tree, a man made tree.  It turns out this is a cell phone tower and instead of a boring eyesore of just an ugly tower, there is an attempt to make them fit in with the environment. So know that cell phone you hold in the palm of your hand….now hangs out just in the palm.  The funny thingt was though, in this case, was that there were two stumps of REAL palm trees that were cut down for this fake one…less than five – your heard me – five feet away!

Now if they could just fine a way to disguise ugly people on the cell phone.
