Angelina Jolie Buys Brad Pitt An Expensive Tree For Valentine's Day

By Robert Paul Reyes

"BRAD PITT won`t get away with swinging by the petrol station for a bunch of flowers on Valentine`s Day.

His missus ANGELINA JOLIE has bought him a 200-year-old olive tree for a whopping £12,000. ($18,500)

It will take pride of place in the gardens of Chateau Miraval, their French home.

It`s a lovely gesture but an old dog like Brad was probably hoping for a bunk-up." Read more

Valentine`s Day is quite a racket, it was most likely invented by a woman. Guys spend a fortune buying gifts for the ladies, and we are lucky if we get a kiss in return.

Finally, a woman buys her man an expensive gift, but she gives him a freakin` tree. Angelina is unclear on the concept of Valentine`s Day, you`re supposed to buy your lover a nice and romantic gift.. Unless the olive tree comes equipped with a tree house with a waterbed, there`s nothing romantic about it.

Even for a gazillionaire $18,500 for a tree is a colossal waste of money. Angelina is enamored of Third Word babies, how many African babies could have been fed with that money?

If Angelina really wants to make Brad happy for Valentine`s Day she should ship her children to Siberia for a couple of weeks. I`m sure that Brad would appreciate a few weeks alone with his quirky wife. Maybe not.
