[monty python: holy grail] I have just burned a witch after weighing her to see if she weighs as much as a duck! But now I have pondered something: if witches are indeed made of wood, then she was a puppet, and if she was a wooden puppet, then another witch created her!

stop that! stop that! this question is entirely silly. And now for something completely different. Two young witches are sharing a cuppa while a knight and a frog engage in an epic battle of verbal wits.

Actually, witches grow naturally on trees on the continent and are carried over in their larval stage by migratory swallows, you may have seen their empty husks laying around, they look remarkably like an empty coconut.

Oh FFS, not more Creatonist canards. Puppets evolved from a common ancestor with today's trees, an ancestor which is itself extinct which is the answer to your next dumb question "hurr durr why are there still trees?"

I assume the puppet trees aren't native to Briton though

This new learning amazes me. Explain again how sheep's bladders can be employed to prevent earthquakes.

All witches are puppets of the devil, that’s why we burn them.
