PHOTO: Toomer's Corner Trees Get One Last Toilet Papering For Old Time's Sake

The dying oak trees at Toomer's Corner, Auburn's beloved landmark and victory rally point, are receiving a loving tribute after news broke that they don't have long to live. Auburn fans have gathered at the corner of Magnolia and College to send the trees off like BCS national champions. There's live, streaming video of it happening right now, if you're quick:

Not quite a bonanza of personal hygiene products, but give it time. It kind of looks like the trees were papered with whatever TP somebody had on hand, and now they're just standing watch while somebody goes on a TP run. You can only be so prepared for this kind of thing, after all. Anybody have any guesses as to what those signs say?

Even as I type this, more onlookers are wandering over. Some of them likely don't even know yet that the trees are dying. The number of sign-holders is up to four.
