    Heyzooos!

    Did he cut that tree down, or did it get sick of listening to him blather, and jump?

    Gotta admit, based on the title, I only watched to the end to see if he got took out by a widowmaker, or something interesting like that.
    Pretty disappointed that one is still in the gene pool.
