Our Trishmas Shree


Thish ish my Trishmas tree, if shoe shink it rooksh a little
slurry you shood she it from swear I am!!!


Before my mate and I started this project we stocked up with 700 bottles of wine, there were Reds, Whites, Sweet, Dry and every known grape variety was represented, some was consumed chilled, some at room temperature, and
lots of it was just slurped up happily.

We worked diligently at the task of consuming the contents of these bottles, so that we could construct our Christmas Tree, for several weeks pausing only when a blissful state of unconsciousness was reached.

There have been whispers, that this project was only undertaken for the joy
of consuming all that wine, and that we would have been better served by going out and buying a Christmas tree, our answer to this is best summed up with a loud resounding BBBURRRPP.

To each their own, we have a letter of commendation from the Wine
Council of Australia, some very good friends at the local bottle shop and even a few neighbors who did a late night shift with us occasionally who all think that our tree deserves a place in the local history archives.

It is heartening to learn that there are some folks in this world who know how to prepare for the season. Such an undertaking does require assistance.

I am saddened that I was unable to be of any assistance. I did consume a number of bottles here, but, alas, we recycled the empties.

I wonder if the Guinness book of world records would be interested in your masterpiece?

Did you or Hale come up with the Christmas Carols for the Disturbed? LMAO

Merry Christmas, Petey. I'd like a tree like that. Living here could cause me to need one!

Cliff said...

What a noble cause. Hi knew there was a reason you are held in such 'high' esteem.
