Have you noticed how in Hollywood movies it's a moral imperative to believe in the supernatural? I keep hearing the words, "I don't believe in coincidences" in movies and on television lately. The implication seems to always be that there's some divine hand moving the universe, lining up otherwise random events into non-coincidental patterns. Well, frankly, I do believe in coincidences. That army of monkeys will, indeed, one day hammer out the complete works of Shakespeare by sheer chance. I'm okay with that. That's not to suggest, however, that I don't like musing on a notable coincidence when it falls in my lap.

Take, for instance, the third time in as many days that the "tree of woe" has come up in three entirely unrelated conversations I've been part of. Three different homoerotic wrestling fans raised the topic of how hot the tree of woe scenario is. The only reason I really know much about it, as such, is from a series of comments on Rants, Roids & Rasslin' a while back, in which folks were dissecting a panel from one of RR&R's wrestling comics. "Tree of woe" is apparently the moniker for that precarious situation when a wrestler discovers himself hanging upside down from the corner turnbuckle, completely vulnerable to a humiliating and devastating attack.

It seems to me that there's more than just a little element of bondage, with the poor catcher's ankles locked and laced underneath the supports tying the turnbuckle to the ring post. A knee to the gut, a boot to the face... the options appear to be endless. Yes, and hot...
