Just in time for Christmas

It's available!
Urban Outfitters is selling a replica of the "pathetic" Xmas tree Charlie Brown took home in A Charlie Brown Christmas:
Good Grief. Learn the true meaning of Christmas with Charlie Brown's classic pathetic Christmas tree. Leave it bare or dress it up all fancy. The tree is an exact replica of the tree from the famous cartoon, made of wire branches and plastic needles with a criss cross wooden base. The bendable branches allow you to make it look just how you want, super pathetic or just kind of pathetic. The tree comes with one red Christmas ball ornament. Plus the bendable branches make it possible to fold the tree entirely flat for easy storage during the non-yuletide times of the year.

I was cleaning out the "back storage", which is merely a euphemism for junk, at work today. I found the [lousy] christmas decorations. I wanted to toss that crap as well. I think it's disgusting that a large company, publically traded, in a democratic and pluralistic society would allow the celebration of any faith in such a hideous manner.

However, I think we would do well to have one those Charlie Brown trees in our lobby.

Actually I know of a local church whereby they have this 'cult-tish practice' called the 'Hanging of the Greens'. To this day I have no idea what the Greens did to deserve to be hung. I can put in contact and find a good home for your Charlie Brown Christmas Tree. One can never have enough faux plastic trees. Actually it has become a tradition...tregging off to Walmart to fall a perfect plastic tree with our Canadian Tire Chain saw. The saw seems to startle the Walmart greeter ...a bit...but I guess it being so close to Halloween and Friday the 13th and all....
