“An absolute disgrace,” thundered new Geelong (Australia) mayor Darryn Lyons about the Christmas tree that had been purchased by his very own town. Proclaiming it “the worst Christmas tree in the world,” it didn’t help Lyons’ mood that the purchase price reportedly was $27,000 U.S. dollars.
“I think I’d rather donate it to the English cricket team,” he said. “They can cut a few bats out of it and see how they go in the Melbourne test match.”
I imagine that Fox News’ Todd Starnes is already on his way to Australia to ask Mr. Lyons why he hates Christmas.
