Maybe your tree isn't mocking you. Maybe your tree is a Rolling Stones fan? Sorry, LOL, couldn't resist!

That's funny...does that boy of yours make faces like that behind your back?

The green looks like one of the lichen species.

Let's see...squinting eyes...contorted mouth...tongue hanging out. I'd say it's about to drop a log on your lawn.

That is the funniest, cutest thing I've seen in a long time!!!! I had to print out a picture of it. Is that the Burr oak? Is this the first time you noticed that?
