~ Editing my original post to say the plant was identified as Candelabra Tree (Euphorbia ingens)

Anyone know the name of these wacky, cool looking cacti at Balboa Park in San Diego?:

No clue, but I'd call it the Twisted Demon.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
