Alsome.

I'm off to London next Thursday! Harrod's is on the list.

They said f**k off. And that is not an appropriate message for a child. At least not at Christmas time.”

*snork! effing priceless*

A little snot came out my nose. Give that man a drink...and see what he spells out next.

Is the key quote the one fivver mentioned, or “He had drunk the best part of two bottles of whisky,” ?

so did they turn the f**k off?

What's wrong with "Harrods"?

That's not an appropriate thing to say to a child. At least not at Christmas.
OMGosh, that's priceless. Like, it's okay to say that to a kid on other holidays?

“He had drunk the best part of two bottles of whisky,” said a spokesperson for the iconic London store, “and it’s that kind of behaviour that got him the sack in the first place.”

So alcohol was involved. And alcohol dehydrogenase. I'm impressed he could find the right switches with that kind of inebriation going on.

Well, he was sober enough to figure out the lighting system. That's a lot more coherent than most of the Santa's I remember from my childhood. Some of 'em would even get crotchety when I asked them to repeat my gift list back to me for confirmation.

“He had drunk the best part of two bottles of whisky,” said a spokesperson for the iconic London store, “and it’s that kind of behaviour that got him the sack in the first place.”

"That kind of behaviour" is forbidden? I thought that it was required for the job.

They said f**k off. And that is not an appropriate message for a child. At least not at Christmas time.

A) You must be 16 years of age or older for this to be appropriate at Christmas time.

2) Children under 16 must wait for Valentine's Day.

I would disagree with the lady from Indiana. F@#K OFF can be an appropriate message at Christmas time when you have the whole family together and Uncle Ed has had his sixth Egg Nog and wants to tell you why you are wrong about everything and how when he was your age everything was better.

Ato24 - that sounds like Festivus

Well we do have the feats of strength

Sorry, Photo-shop of horrors.

Best.
Quote.
Ever.

yeah, it was tried once before...with disastrous results for literature.

Tiny Tim: "God bless us all everyone!"

Father Christmas: "Oh, f*** off!"

Yeah, I think George Bailey said "F*** off" once.

Bad Language Santa with William Robert Thornton.

Bad Santa!

It's a fake.

I am so disappointed.

buzz kill, mad pat:

please don't tell us there's no santana claus

Amazing what length in Christmas lights too. That's too bad.

Evidently they don't think a child has ever heard their parents arguing at 4 am on Christmas Day while they're trying to assemble a 1000 piece toy kitchen.

"...Hey!"

Sheesh, look what you did all over the blog, sandy.

The " Eat Me " disgruntled employee had the day off.

Now that puts me in the Christmas spirit. Harrod's is all indignant and stuff, but I'll bet their sales are up because of this. Not that I'm advocating this sort of thing as a marketing strategy.

Brilliant!

I'd hire the guy.

HA! jeff: i DO believe insanity clause....(& i ho ho hope
to finally meet some fellow 'tri-state bloggers' in march)

On the same theme:

Lesson: NEVER P.O. Santa Claus!!

All those years I left a glass of milk and cookies out for Santa. No wonder I never got what I asked for.

To quote HHGTTG: "I thought Harrods was destroyed by the Vogons."

Deck us all with Boston Charlie,
Walla Walla Wash, and Kalamazoo,
Nora's freezing on the trolley,
Walla Walla cauliflower, and alla-ga-roo!

Take it, Steve!

And/or Jeff!
