that's what you think it is, but...

the tables from garden furniture sets have a shorter life expectancy than the chairs they are purchased with. when these tables feel that they are coming to the end of their useful lives they secretly remove themselves and seek the legendary 'Tabula Necropolis' that no living person has ever seen.

congratulations on your discovery!

their skeletons are highly prized by the 'Recycolaros' of 'Skip Town' and they will pay anything up to $2 a kg for fresh skeletons and $3 for a well age skeleton.

ever since the cruel 'Table Harvesting' binge of the late 80's, the numbers of plastic tables have steadily increased by 15% every year and their numbers are stablising' thanks to the miracle of mass-production.

i never thought i would get to see a natural table graveyard in my lifetime. thank you for sharing. (((O)))
