HYBRID CHRISTMAS TREE CONTINUES GROWING DESPITE BEING CUT

AS HE ASSESSES THE DAMAGES, UNSUSPECTING HOME OWNER CLAIMS HE WAS  PRESSURED INTO BUYING THE "SUPER" TREE ,  A LAW SUIT IS PENDING

BRIDGEPORT

Ward Kleaver, 45, of Bridgeport was awakened last night by a loud noise in his living room.
Getting up to investigate, he was shocked to find the family's decorated Christmas tree had pushed itself up and out trough the roof. Not knowing what was happening, he grabbed his wife and kids and fled the house.  Spending the night in the car outside, at daybreak he saw that the tree had grown and was now almost five feet above the roof.  He became filled with anguish, knowing he could not afford more tree decorations for the tree above the roof line.
The tree was purchased on Thursday from a company called TreesRUs, who claims all sales are final. TreesRUs lost its BBB rating in 2002, but continued to operate out of a semi-truck, moving from state to state.  Last year they lost a battle in court to sell their SuprApple tree which they claim produces watermelon sized apples.   This year they came back with the new super hybrid Christmas tree that has been grown with their "secret" chemicals.  
Kleaver said he was shopping for a regular Christmas tree, but the sales lady kept after him to "get a big one" which he says confused him.
TreesRUs salesperson
Suzy Whozzie sold the
tree to Kleaver.
"She whispered to me she'd get spanked by Santa, if she didn't sell a super tree,"  Kleaver told CHANNEL 1 NEWS'S Dave Taylor. "And it didn't help matters that she was dressed like a cute little Santa's helper."

The City Attorney has promised to file charges against TreesRUs after the holidays.  In the mean time the Kleaver family will spend Christmas at home as usual, only this year with an unusual Christmas tree.
