The Styrofoam Cup Tree

“Where does Styrofoam come from,” Bea asked her husband.

“Eh, I don’t know for sure but I think it’s a petroleum product, you know, like plastic.”

“So, there’s no Styrofoam Cup Tree?”

“Nope. Definitely not. Why do you ask?”

“Well, the other day I was walking along and saw several Styrofoam cups dangling from a tree. Saw it again a week later with more cups on it. Seemed to be growing with each week.”

“Sounds like someone’s been playing pranks.”

“No Styrofoam plants that grow then?”

“Not a chance.”

“Okay,” Bea said. “Wait, did you say plastic is a petroleum product?”

“It is.”

“Next you’ll tell me spaghetti doesn’t grow on trees.”

“I wouldn’t do that. Spaghetti grows on the same trees as money. Different branches.”

“Oh,” said Bea.
