Arianna Hufffington is Now a Tulip Tree

2013-10-22-ariannastree-thumbAt this point nothing that HuffPost runs in its online beast of a publication is that surprising. Not even today’s blog posting in which some people in Hawaii name a tree after the media behemoth Arianna Huffington.

We can hear it now — “Time to water Arianna!” Or, on a bad day, “Who in the hell forgot to water Arianna this morning?”

In a HuffPost Hawaii blog posting from Richard Ha, a farmer on the Big Island, he goes on and on (and on and on) about Arianna’s recent visit to the farm with eBay founder Pierre Omidyar. The two got laid (meaning, of course, beautiful flowers adorn their necks).

Ha (how great a name is that?) reports that Arianna enjoyed eating longan, a small brown fruit that is apparently really messy. So much so they had to ensure she had wipes. We hope they were Wet Ones.

But forget all that. The real clincher of the exquisitely incoherent piece full of unabashed praise for Arianna comes at the end when Ha reveals that they’ve named a tree after her. He writes, “Arianna admired this African tulip tree, and so we have decided to name it after her. I’m referring to the one on the right. It’s the Arianna Tree.”

See “Arianna” above.
