A normal tree that is grown in a pot. It is not starved of nutrients. It is kept small partly by the pot but mainly by the trimming of roots and by pruning. Left to grown by themselves and they will not really look like a tree at all. It must be pruned and trained to look like a tree. It is merely an illusion. This is why bonsai is often refered to as living art. The art of making a wooded shrub look like a tree.

n. A new, extremely ugly and unfashinable type of shoe coming out, whose add spams everything, including this site. Its design is composed of a sandal, with the special trademark feature of a very furry sole. However, this causes a very unpleasant shoe, resembling a muppet after being skinned and fitted to a loser's foot. Only suited to wannabe pimps and hardcore lesbos.
Can also be used to describe something or someone, usually a woman, who has not shaved in a while, and so has accumulated an amassment of hideous hair.
John: Hey, so I saw Alicia took you up to her room last night! How'd it go?
Jack: Oh, it was a total let down...That woman's hairy as a BONSAI sandal! I couldn't even penetrate that junk!
John: Oh wow, that does sound horrible. Well at least she wasn't wearing Bonsai sandals!
Jack: Oh yeah, I would have killed myself.
