You might say is was a low-R Ent district.
Trees. Insulation. Hmmm.
Now, if they'd had kapok trees growing there, things might have been better. The silk from kapok seed pods makes good insulation... it's all warm and fluffy. (Dave hums an upbeat few bars of "High-R 'n high-R")
On the other hand, there's a legend that Bazil, the demon of death, is imprisoned in a large kapok tree, having been tricked into entering there by a carpenter. So, maybe having kapok trees would have made things not-better.
Ya'know, I would definitely buy a cel from a Disney production of that part of the story, as long as it showed smoke and Al wearing a polka-dotted weskit.chicgeek wrote:A magic wand is produced, and waved theatrically. "Balla bim, balla boo!" A puff of smoke has him wheezing, but all that happens is his waistcoat gaining polka dots. "Oh, bother!"
