Different car, different tree, but this made me immediately think of the 1971 French comedy "Sur un Arbre Perché", with Louis de Funès...

I remember seeing it, but I really can't remember anything else about it, except that it was funny... (as are most of Louis de Funès' movies...)

With a name like Funès, it's got to be good...

funnily enough, two hours ago I drove past a bunch of Magpie Geese that had decided to roost in the tops of some mango trees :shock:

Even saw one landing, so I slowed down to get a real good look and yes, it was a goose.

I can remember years ago, in the middle of a long and very wet wet season, I drove past two Magpie Geese standing on top of a fence rail while all around them was under water.

Still, it's a very weird thing to see geese in the tops of trees :lol:

Well! If that parking valet thinks he'll be getting a tip, he is sadly mistaken.

If the first photo is what I think it is, that is a car that ended up in the tree during flood. (that or someone got bored and had a crane handy :p)

......okay. I'm not really sure why you felt the need to explain that to me, I am aware that no parking valets were actually involved. :|

That's too bad... I'd like to see him try to get it back out of its parking spot... :twisted:

OK, I'll admit my joke was awful but I don't believe it was so awful it needs to be mocked in this manner.

I can't speak for the others, but I, for one, was merely running with it, and certainly not mocking it. I actually found it rather amusing, not awful.

This gag was used again later in a film called 'the Big Hit' with Mark Wahlberg (Marky Mark!), China Chow, Lou Diamond Phillips, Christina Applegate, Bokeem Woodbine, Antonio Sabato, Jr., Avery Brooks, Elliott Gould and a cast of thousands.

I cant seem to Google up a corresponding picture as of yet...

I was instantly reminded of this.
