How Me an Randy ‘stole’ Christmas that one time

grrrriiiiiinch-ery

Well friends, gettin’ into the home stretch here, last minute panic buying and so on. Here’s another old christmas mix in case theChristmas Cracker one wore out its welcome already. There’s a couple of upbeat and/or more modern moments on it but for the most part we’re on the gentle, relaxin, crackly old records side of things here. Sippin’  on a little something and watching the fire burn y’know? Slidin’ on off into a soporific reverie on the couch in front of ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ or The Wizard Of Oz. As for the name there well, I said it before, an I say it again – it ain’t what you think. We didn’t really steal Christmas, and we didn’t never have to spend no Christmas day in jail neither. This is just about this thing that happened one year. We’d been drinkin’, as is the, erm, seasonal thing to do right? Christmas cheer, in the spirit of the holidays and so on. Anyways, we thought it’d be a real festive type of idea if the christmas tree from a certain local business premises accompanied the pair of us on to the next bar and shared in our celebrations with us. Snuck out from work for a quick one kinda, Now, being as we’d been drinkin’ for the best part of the afternoon already and ain’t usually the brightest bulbs on the tree there to begin with we didn’t reckon on the lights on the tree being plugged in. I guess we thought they just glowed with christmas magic, goodwill to mankind or some such thing, and so in short order all three of us collapsed in a tangled pile, baubles shootin’ this way an that without getting more than a few feet into our high speed getaway. I think it’s fair to say that some of those present failed to quite see the funny side of the situation.
