Growing Strange

This is a story I heard in Wristcutters: A Love Story.  I felt it was worth sharing. 

Once upon a time there was a crooked tree and a straight tree.  They grew next to each other.  Everyday the straight tree would look at the crooked tree and he would say "You're crooked!  You've always been crooked and you'll continue to be crooked!"  "Look at me!  Look at me!" said the straight tree.  "I'm tall and I'm straight!"  Then one day the lumber jacks came into town, they looked around and the manager in charge said "Cut down all the straight trees!"  And that crooked tree is still there to this day, growing strong and growing strange.
