Typical male, Santa comes early

What's the commercial world up to?

A CairnsBlog reader snapped this pic at Big W, Earlville, last week when she saw staff filling shelves with Christmas decorations and other Chinese-made Coca-Cola inspired gimmicks, three months ahead of the big day.

"Mike, I couldn't believe it, I had to take a photo to prove it was real!," Joanne wrote in an email this morning. "I counted around three isles that were getting stacked full of Xmas crap in our local Big W."

Santa really shouldn't come so early. He's starting to get a bad reputation as a cheap whore.

Yeah, and I wonder how much of the crap has formeldehyde or lead in it. The tonnes and tonnes of junk cramming up the warehouses and ending up in humongous rubbish tips across the country, says a lot about us as a society.

You people don't get out much, do you?

Xmas decorations have been up at Myer for two weeks, mate.

To CBD Warrior (AKA Fabio),

I thought you of all people would be happy that Santa is coming early this year.

He can replace that gold chain you lost at Kerrie's place, and have been looking for all these months.

Kerrie's ex house cleaner said...

Prancer, I found the gold chain in between the stained satin sheets. Sadly though the links were all stretched. Could be evidence of a frantic struggle.
I understand from the next door neighbour that Kerrie was over heard berating Fabio about how she felt set up and used by the Fabio and his co conspirators.
Kerrie, quite rightly is demanding her pound of flesh. Fabio is overheard with raised voice, 'Don't look to me, I have nothing to offer you but my used sex toys.'
For the record the sex aids were lent by Freedbody while negotiating the ill advised Adventure Park proposal!

I'm willing to bet CBD Warrior is a Myer One Card Holder and spends a considerable amount of his time hanging around the Painted Ladies of the Cosmetics Counters. Oh of course it's CBD Warrior and we all know his alter ego Blake are the same so he would be there buying his hair dye and wrinkle remover.

Poor old Blakey has not only lost his gold chain - a sign of a successful man in every sense I'm sure you'll agree - but he will probably have to sell the sports car soon as he is quickly becoming the baby sitter for his girl-friend Ms Hull and her friends as well. He'll have to buy a mini-bus to pick them all up in. Handy for the girls to have such a good baby-sitter, heaven knows he has to be good at something. Or maybe he is seeking a substitute for his own sons now they have left him out in the cold.

Blake upon Hull said...

Some of us believe in Santa but only because we need myths and legends. CBD and his life style of womanizing and misinformation will be outed. Enjoy the high rise life while you can old man. Your living a myth and the legend is your soon to end.

Does anyone have any stats from retail outlets to see any anyone actually buys Christmas-themed merchandise in September? (Or October and November for that matter)

I just wonder if the stores could make more cash by using that space for other merchandise for the 3 months leading up the Christmas, or if it is actually a good money earner earlier in the year.

Isn't it fascinating that a simple subject such as Christmas Decorations can result in more revelations on Alan Blake and the great hatred the majority of us have for him.

Kerries ex- house Cleaner said...

Yes it is fascination but it goes to prove that he is a figure of fun and that the community in general has no respect for him.
If he had the 'balls ' to come clean and fall on his sword the public would have some respect for him!

Thornton On Spence said...

If Alan Blake was to come clean on all his wrong doings there would be a huge number of irate Husbands, the CMC (Crimes and Misconduct Committee)would be locking him up and we would need a separate Blog to just cover the list. Talk of him falling on his sword or coming clean is just that talk. It needs Desley Boyle to do what is fully desrved and clean him out.

I reckon we should boycott Christmas - I'm totally over it, & quite a number of people I talk to leading up to the C-Time, are weary of it. How about we do it every 2 years, or 3 years. Then it might even be vaguely enjoyable.
