"A ghillie suit, also known as a yowie suit, or camo tent, is a type of camouflage clothing designed to resemble heavy foliage. Typically, it is a net or cloth garment covered in loose strips of burlap, cloth or twine, sometimes made to look like leaves and twigs, and optionally augmented with scraps of foliage from the area.”
-From Wikipedia entry, Ghillie Suit
No joke, one of my friends who is an ex-Marine had (unbeknownst to the rest of the gang) been hard at work constructing a ghillie suit for months.  
One day we’re just hanging out at his place when he excused himself.  I was just sitting there in his living room on an easy chair when I happened to look down and behind me.  There I discovered a pile of leaves that was not there moments before.  
Let me tell you, in retrospect it’s pretty damn silly but this was a very convincing pile of leaves, twigs, etc…! It was as if one of the guys had said, “Hey! You know who’s missing from this hangout? Pile of leaves!” and then proceeded to bring them in.  It wasn’t until the pile began singing (similar to the Singing Bush in the Three Amigos) that we fully grasped what had occurred.  
Anyhow, just thought I’d share.
