Cherchez la branch!

"A woman is like an olive tree, when its branches catch woodworm, it has to be chopped off so that the society stays clean and pure". Quote by a prominent politician.

In an article entitled "The Secret Lives of Just About Everybody" a sociologist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology notes that: "It used to be you'd go away for the summer and be someone else, go away to camp and be someone else, or maybe to Europe and be someone else" in a spirit of healthy experimentation.

I wonder how many olive trees are now eligible for chopping thanks to our compatriots' healthy experimentation. As for the sate of our compatriots' branches, I wonder if they could share with us (olive trees) the secret for keeping them worm-free.
