Don’t you just love those wacky Germans? As the festive period comes to an end, those of us who purchased a ‘real’ Christmas tree must be wondering what to do with it.
It’s probably sat there in the corner of the room looking like it has the tree equivalent of alopecia, the residual needles hanging on for dear life, waiting for a time to embed themselves into your feet.
Well our continental cousins have decided to hold the world Christmas Tree Throwing Championships.
Known locally as the ‘Knut-Fest’ the contest sees the entrants throwing their unwanted trees in three styles; Javelin, Hammer and High jump. The winner is decided by the total distance achieved during the day’s events.
I suppose to do well in next year’s contest you just buy a small Christmas tree!
I got thinking that it would be fun to hold these types of contests for all our unwanted dead wood, politicians and such.
Some mechanical help in the form of a catapult would help with some of the larger specimens; we could reduce the tension depending on how corrupt they are deemed to be.
Maybe they could be fired into a net or over a river or pond, this would make excellent TV, I can just see Ant and Dec getting quite animated as the Tory-Labour- Lib Dem MP for Blah Blah Blah sailed over, flapping aimlessly away. I would be tuning into that one.
Some of the directors we talk to at TaxGone are aimlessly flapping around trying to get on top of their HMRC VAT, PAYE and Corporation Tax liabilities. Keep your feet on the ground and avoid the catapult with a Company Voluntary Arrangement.
