Free “Artificial CHRISTmas Tree”

Free “Artificial CHRISTmas Tree” December 23, 2011

Once again, Fort Bragg area Craigslist weirdos provide hilarious blog fodder. Last time, we were all accused of being ‘absconding interlopers’ by a five time violent felon. Good times.

This week’s adventure brings us no closer to sanity.

Artificial CHRISTmas Tree *** Curb Alert

Christmas tree is sitting by the road – Trash man comes around 8am tomorrow morning (Monday).

Merry Christmas y’all!!!


I thought the ‘Christmas Tree’ was somewhat vilified by the fundies as ‘taking the Christ out of Christmas’. Like Santa, Rudolph, Frosty, etc.

But then I re-read it and saw the word “Artificial”… It’s pretty ironic to see this ‘Artificial CHRISTmas’ couplet. Not just because we don’t believe in god, but also because the Yule and Christmas Tree concept, along with the December 25th date are all plagiarized from other religions.

It’s common knowledge even among well-read Christians that much of it was borrowed Pagan tradition. Hopefully the curb alert was ineffective. Reason’s greetings, Mr. garbage man!

This one had a home address on it, so I’ll spare linking to it. I voted it ‘Best of Craigslist’ as always. Here is screenshot for posterity:

    Artificial Christ is right. Accept no substitutes.

    Shit, it’s even in the bible! Jeremiah 10:2-5

    “Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.

    For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.

    They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

    They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.”

    Sounds to me like the CHRISTmas guy needs to do some scripture study.

    And he’s throwing the tree out, a week before Christmas. So maybe that means he’s against Jesus, and he emphasized the word to highlight his intended insult?

    Or maybe his shift key got stuck.
