Elongated arboreal arrangement

This just in from the Department of Non Sequitur and Novus Ordo Seclorum:

Michigan is home to what’s believed to be the U.S.’ largest singing Christmas tree.

And that has nothing to do with the municipalities that have decriminalized pot.

Uh, right. In case you're completely unfamiliar with the topic (the AP photo above of the Charlotte Choral Society appeared in the Chicago Trib in December 1962), let's explain:

A singing Christmas tree is a multi-leveled conical-shaped structure, filled with singers performing Christmas carols. Michigan’s tree is so unusual that it’s drawing the interest of the Travel Channel.

The home base of the country’s No. 1 such acoustic arboreal arrangement — in height and in number of carolers — is in Norton Shores, a Muskegon suburb. The Mona Shores High School Choir has 225 in its singing Christmas tree, which comprises 15 tiers and stands 67 feet tall — the equivalent of a five-story building. Another 41 singers, who don’t fit in the tree, stand next to it.

Remember, editors: Friends don't let friends slip on elongated yellow fruitpeels.

Hey, at least they used "comprise" correctly.
