Other Famous Thickets

Posted by Sarah Mirk on Tue, Jun 23, 2009 at 12:33 PM

Did you know that a thicket of lies is creeping up City Hall like an army of insidious topiaries?

It is just one of many famous thickets in the world! The definition of thicket allows for a broad range of notable items — not just lies! — to qualify as thickety.

1 : a dense growth of shrubbery or small trees 2 : something resembling a thicket in density or impenetrability : tangle - a political thicket a, thicket of reporters

Here are three thickets far more enjoyable than the lurid but depressing thicket of lies.


Thicket of pies.

Thicket of Pickets.

Enchanted Thicket of Lies.
