Turkey C*ck Lane, Colchester
Bishop Butt Close Orpington
Also, there are a few Candy Cane Lanes:

Dr Richard Kirby, of the University of Plymouth, has assembled some of his favourite plankton photos into a Christmas scene:

He's also come up with the Twelve Plankton of Christmas.

Yeah, i thought the Christmas plankton picture was interesting. Also, i thought the Wreath of Khan was funny.

The plankton thing was in the Telegraph this morning. And, according to Google, in the Daily Mail.

I just ran into the Wreath of Khan on Regretsy. Less tasteful decorations can be found HERE.

I thought about making a wreath of Khan joke when I saw that some posted a pic of a wreath they made, but that looks so funny in its slightly crappy xmas card way.

i was in Sainsbury's yesterday and i saw a bloke there who looked liked Jesus.

Also, when i was in Sainsbury's a few weeks ago, they played Fairytale of New York by Kirsty MacColl and The Pogues and the woman at the delicatessen sang along to the bit where Kirsty MacColl says You scumbug, you maggot/ You cheap, lousy f*ggot.

How does one sing an asterisk?

Probably in much the same way as Katie Melua sings the next line - in the version that she did with Shane McGowan, it's

"Happy Christmas your [suddenly goes quiet for a second]
I pray God it's our last"

Even worse, Ronan Keating & Moya Brennan (from Clannad), where it became "you scumbag, you maggot, you're cheap and you're haggard!"

Two bits of seasonal cheer and goodwill that people who haven't friended me on Facebook yet might enjoy. The first one was sent to me by a friend who lives in Hawaii, and I stole the second one shamelessly from Almond Facial Bar:

Mele Kalikimaka!

Terry Gilliam Christmas card

It was last year's, but so brilliant that I post again this Hallelujah Chorus singing Flash Mob somewhere in a Food Mall in the US.

Sound up please!
