LOL. Quite amusing. One would think George would think so too.
On a more serious not, God help us if that mega-wildfire touches off.
Now that’s what we call ‘Beetlemania’.

Don’t beetles have the same right to life as trees? Are we good Darwinists here, or not? Survival of the fittest!

While his guitar gently weeps...
ESPECIALLY if his guitar is infested with beetles.
I WANT TO MOURN.... THE LOSS of all the old growth!!!! Of trees I’ve seen!!! And tell them that we love them and we don’t want them to die!
Chris Plante plays this regularly on his show! It is a hoot!

Were they Silver Beetles, by chance? ;)
[They didn't call themselves that long, maybe 5 weeks or so.]

Obviously not ... if so it would have had to burn instead.

Guess they won’t be making any guitars from the wood of that tree....

Don’t fret about the guitar, string beetles are rare

(I could eat it raw, but why do that when I have a fire.)
My theory is that George reincarnated as a “Beetle” and led the charge on his memorial after having realized that it was very tasty . . .
