The Really, Really Giving Tree | #TBT

National Poetry Day was earlier this week, and I was planning on making today’s #TBT post about Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree, but I found this funny video instead. So many of us read this book as kids, and we tend to romanticize it as a story about unconditional love, but there are much darker implications under the surface. This CollegeHumor video takes it a step further and illustrates just how abusive this relationship really is.
