What kind of large vascular plant uproots itself, then hurls itself into the fjord, in the company of a host of others of its kind?

A lemming tree, my dear Watson.

So that's what an avocado looks like when it is pregnant.

When I was just a lad of ten, my father said to me,
"Come here and take a lesson from the lovely lemming tree."
"Don't put your faith in love, my boy", my father said to me,
"I fear you'll find that love is like the lovely lemming tree."

Lemming tree very pretty and in the wind it will sway
But come the fall the lovely lemming tree runs away
Lemming tree very pretty in a lovely lemming tree patch
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to catch.

One day beneath the lemming tree, my love and I did lie
A girl so sweet that when she smiled the stars rose in the sky.
We passed that summer lost in love beneath the lemming tree
The music of her laughter hid my father's words from me:

Lemming tree very pretty and in the wind it will sway
But come the fall the lovely lemming tree runs away
Lemming tree very pretty in a lovely lemming tree patch
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to catch.

One day she left without a word. She took away the sun.
And in the dark she left behind, I knew what she had done.
She'd left me for another, it's a common tale but true.
A sadder man but wiser now I sing these words to you:

Lemming tree very pretty and in the wind it will sway
But come the fall the lovely lemming tree runs away
Lemming tree very pretty and the fruit is rich
But the fruit of the poor lemming is a heartless bitch.

It sorta seems like this is relevant.

The thing is you can't see Walt Disney off-screen with a cattle prod.

And I would like to note that I saw Trini Lopez in concert.

They've saved the cattle prod, gonna use it to re-animate his frozen head once they've cured anaphlaxys/bovine spongiform encephalopathy/weverinafuck he died of.

To the heartbreaking contribution of Mr. Lunacy i can only add: When life gives you lemmings you should make a substantial contribution to Lemming Aid.

They only spawn in their ancestral waters.
