Entymology, not to be confused with etymology, is the scientific study of non-sessile, logorrheic, encephalized plant organisms, i.e., walking, talking, trees. Some people insist it also covers the creepies and crawlies thereupon and by extention all bugs and sometimes all non-furry/non-cuddly things everywhere. The first scientific description of the life form was recorded by J.R.R. Tolkien while on location during the filiming of Robert's Rules of Order: The Movie. He first observed and sketched the ents. Later, during a delay in filming, he carefully hacked to death, autopsied and stuffed the lifeless remains of hundreds of ents into jars filled with formaldehyde and shipped the specimens to Yale for more detailed study.
