No-one has picked on Christmas jumpers?

Can't stand them. Usually worn by smug do gooders or young children. I don't mind a seasonal fair isle or something but the 8.99 eBay special with a few fornicating reindeer on worn by an 'I'm so much cooler than you' jedwood lookalike needs to be given a stern telling off and then burnt (jumper optional). London is full of them!

Sorry I've just had enough of reading jumpers with Happy Birthday Jesus and the like officially as of today.

No never understood them. Not even the humour side of wearing it (which is the only reason to wear one I guess)

Good rant.

At the office there was an almost compulsory feel about it this year. On my site a number of people did it, but I think the connection to any charitable endeavour was spurious to say the least. In the London office it seemed to be endemic, and we were bombarded with emails of photos, demonstrating what a great bunch of people they were, up for a laugh, great guys and gals, what a hoot.

Hairy nut sacks.

It used to be a student thing. Having a laugh in the local pub. Students of Leeds university would have a competition in a pub in Heddingly, but these days everyones doing it.

Headingley by any chance? Which pub?

PS What a bunch of miserable humbugs you are.

I never made it past the moat of vomit to visit the Skyrack. A friend of mine went in once because he was desperate for a pee but I think the experience scarred him for life. The Oak was a fine place to go and play crown bowling but you wouldn't want to drink their beer. Haven't been there for 25 years though.
