THORNAPPLES SUCK!!!! That thorn went almost an INCH into my ankle. It stopped only because it hit the bone.



The hole doesn't look like much, but that's because it swelled shut.



I hate Ohio.

Ouch, Hickey. That looks like it could do some serious damage to a tire also.

I also had a experience with a thorn this weekend, except I sat on it. It also went in about an inch, into my ASS. When I jumped up, I had the thorn and the stick it was attached to attached to my left cheek. I was with my wife, she was no help as she was laughing too hard. It's still a bit tender.

A thornapple is an apple tree with an attitude. The tree is usually completely covered with thorns like in the first picture.
