Fuck. I just read all of this thread.

Why?

Because I'm in Christchurch for $mas and I've been on the sauce with my old man since tea time. He's gone to bed 'cos he's elderly so now I'm very, very drunk and very, very bored.

Redswitch, you are an extremely stupid person.

European settlers conquered these here isles so therefore we should respect their traditions and carry them on mindlessly. They were christians so we should doff our hats to that regardless of whether we ourselves are christian or not.

'Cos fuck, it'd be pretty fucking rude to think outside the square and do your own thing wouldn't it?

Your whole mentality seems to be along the lines of,

Well, you could actually do things differently but the vast majority of people do it this way so you shouldn't rock the boat 'cos that might upset people and that's bad so just keep your head down and shut up 'cos everything is fine and dandy.

What's it actually like having no spine or genitals?

What's more, Yoo-ro-pee-ins didn't actually found this country. You're obviously from the deep, deep south and should probably go for a nice swim in the Clutha.

In conclusion, Christmas means insane traffic, vast lines in crappy malls, even more fucking people pestering you than usual, and Cliff fucking Richard singing Mistletoe & Wine.

What the fuck is clever or funny about that I ask you?

I'm just lucky enough to come from a family of cynics and atheists. We'll be using the whole thing as an excuse to drink booze and eat lots more so than usual and fuck the trimmings.

Bah humbug to the fuckin' lot of you.

I get ornaments for my ma, 'cos she likes them, and practical things for my old man and my sis, 'cos they're both fairly similar in that they appreciate the useful over the decorative.

They give me booze, 'cos in the right amounts it makes me shut up.

At least I have what I would consider a somewhat informed opinion on things and don't just make nonsensical posts preaching change with no method.

He did try and fight people as well as sing pop hits, I think they cancel each other out.

I think much of it was his anger at not being able to sing pop hits anymore :D
