April 11

Slum Goddess, facing a 100-game suspension by the International Coalition of Tree Tossing in the Spring (ICTTS) for submitting a photo of what might have been an old potted plant the other day, unearthed this treasure early this morning near the Mars Bar.


And, without a newspaper, Slum Goddess displayed daring and ingenuity by using a dated ATM receipt to verify when she spotted this tree.


In a statement, ICTTS spokesperson Gruber MacDougal commended Slum Goddess' "grace under pressure" and "MacGyver-like MacGyverness."

However, the celebration may be short-lived. Per a reader earlier this evening: "just spotted a big- ass Christmas tree in front of 222 east 3rd st, avenues b and c. someone with a newspaper go shoot it!"

I saw one on 3rd St BTW: B & C this afternoon. It was in a white plastic bag.

@Starzstylista: Ha ha ha! I agree!

Congratulations to Slum Goddess for producing a facebook-like tossed-tree to Tom's MySpace tree last night! And the ATM receipt verification is the icing on the cake! As far as that "tip" goes, I'm guessing it's the ICTTS goons trying to send someone on a wild-goose chase on this rainy night.

That tip is bullshit! I'm going to track down what happened to the Macy's tree right now and win this once and for all! I have been working out for about five minutes now and I am more MacGuyver than ever. I am willing and ready to do hard time in prison over this.

Is it true that C Squat has a tree and will be out for May day

I'm thinking that Slum Goddess's entry is good enough for 2nd or 3rd place.
