It's a Brexit Christmas miracle!

That looks like someone just went out to the forest and picked a pine tree at random.

Don't look a gift spruce in the boughs.

I think it accurately represents 2021 and those of us who did our part to try and stop the spread of COVID-19.

Doesn't one city worldwide go through this shiat every year?

Guess London's number came up.

Norway isn't in the EU. Although they can still look down on Brexit, since they were never stupid enough to join and quit while causing a clusterfark to all concerned.

Pretty weak, but it'll look okay if the Griswold it up appropriately.

Someone didn't see the many photos of the Rockefeller Center tree between delivery and lighting up... They add branches.

No shiat - I think it makes sense - we ought to have one like that as well.  A tree representative of the state the farking country is in.  When the anti-sanity dumbfarks start biatching, well they're the ones that got us here so they can shut the fark up

I mean, Brexit is pretty much "small dick energy".  Glad they got a tree to represent it.

Perfect visual representation of Britain 10 years after Brexit.

- even with that dog's breakfast wankfest pathetic excuse for a tree!
Christmas is in our hearts & minds - even the minds of obviously rat-arsed woodmen who have smoked too much "tea".

I was picturing one that size but with like 5 spindly little Charlie Brown branches sticking out in random spots, struggling to get anywhere

Just put the thin side up against Big Ben and do more lights on the rest of it.

Norway isn't in the EU, but it has to obey all EU directives with no input.  So, they are not-in-the-EU in a similar manner to Puerto Rico "not being in the US".

Yup. This is literally what all of those big trees look like before they get filled in. Take a look at pics from the tree in Enid, OK. When it first got off the truck it looked ridiculous. Now it looks less ridiculous.

Most big town center trees get tons of artificial/additional limbs stuck to them to get that that iconic xmas tree fullness, because natural large trees aren't quite so dense.
 
2021-12-02 1:51:44 PM  
It isn't Christmas without some dour faced grumps saying a tree somewhere is an embarrassment or disgrace.

People just don't have Christmas cheer anymore. It's all about moaning. Now I'm moaning.

Merry Christmas

And that's just what Americans want for all countries.

I never said they were - although they're in the EFTA - which is the EU-lite.

Brexit still impacted Norway - and when some British politicians mulled joining EFTA - their Norwegian counterparts told then "No - we don't want you"

I love the idea that it's Norway giving a middle finger to the Brits.

I tried to pinch what I thought was your dick, but it fell off.  Sorry for that.

Oh, nonsense. It's not a "national laughing stock" at all. The are many of us outside of the UK that are laughing at it, too.

The only real bad thing here is the destruction of tens of millions of living trees to celebrate, for a week or so, a demonstrably fake holiday.

I would guess that the vast majority of those trees are purpose-grown specifically to be sacrificed.

They are.  Even country folk would do well to buy a purpose grown tree than wander out and cut down the first feral tree they think is pretty.
