[TWoP bullpen; after lunch.]

Wing: I don't want to interfere with the picks, but can I suggest My Shocking Story: Half Man, Half Tree?

Miss Alli: You definitely can.

Wing: Shall I read the description?

Entire Bullpen: Obviously.

Wing: "32 year old Dede lives in a remote village in Indonesia with his two children, trying to care for them. Dede, a former fisherman, has an extraordinary skin condition: he has root like structures growing out of his body - branches that can grow up to 5cm a year and which protrude from his hands and feet, and welts covering his whole body. He is known locally as ‘Tree Man’" --

Miss Alli: By his incredibly uncreative neighbors.

Wing: I'm sure it's more colorful in the original Indonesian.

Sars: Come on, guys, calling him "Avon Barksdale"? You're not even trying!

Wing: [continues to read description; crowd is distracted by Tree Pun Olympics]

Sars: "Lord Of The Rings."

Miss Alli: "Twiggy."

Sars: "D.A. Arthur Branch."

Miss Alli: "Branch Rickey."

Joe R: D.A. Branch is played by Fred Thompson.

Wing: Yes.

Joe R:
Maaaaakin' a stump speech!

Wing: Hey, he just wants to know if the doctors can spruce him up a little.

Sars: Changin' his name back to Douglas...FIR God's sake. [pause] Gnarly.
