O Tannen@&%$

This weekend I tried to put up my Christmas tree. It's pretty nice; about 3 feet tall, two pieces that snap together, a ton of lights already on it. Easy, right?

Apparently, not so much. The retarded stand (and I use that word loosely) just wouldn't stay together. The one time I thought I had it actually working, I snapped on the top half of the tree only to watch it lazily fall over as the stand slowly gave way.

Score so far: Christmas - 1, NT - 0.

While reading this post, I glanced at the picture below it--guy with staples/stitches across his head. At first, I thought, "Wow, NT had a major run-in with his 3-foot tall tree." Then I realized it was just some poor smuck immortalized in your caption contest.

Good luck with the tree.

I think when I put that thing up, which an ex lost a couple pieces to so many years ago, we used a lot of tape and zip ties.... oh yeah, and don't think about touching it once it balances itself...
