Aussie understatement

I remember a news item last year where a knockabout Aussie was asked to describe his first experience of a cyclone.

"It was a bit windy" he said.

That's almost as funny as the name the locals have given this tree in Greenough, Western Australia: they call it "The Leaning Tree" (!)

Sorry guys, the tower in Pisa is "leaning", this is FLAT!

It's a River Gum (Eucalyptus camaldulensis) believe it or not.

And yes, it gets "a bit windy" in Greenough too :)

Thanks to Paul for sending this in. Great pic!
