Alien Seed Pod from Hell!!
We have a sweetgum tree in the back yard. If you aren't familiar with this tree, they are a very nice variety, with pretty, regular, palmate leaves with star-like points.
Then, there's the seed pod.
This thing looks like it's about to jump down your throat and then burst through your chest after it gestates. It doesn't look much better after it dries, turns brown, and falls off the tree.
