The tree stump, term was put into use by Samantha and Morgan (Shortie) when they were doing their famous story times. Whenever someone was doing or had done something stupid or made an unintelligent decision, they were told, that they should have been hit with a tree stump.
These story times usually included:
- Ocean squirrels
- A woman named Shaniqua
- The Mojave desert
- Hitting things with tree stumps (of course)
- Guns (used not to shoot things, but to hit things with the barrel)
- The squirrel or other character dying in the end
