A Newry man is ‘absolutely distressed’ and ‘shocked’ that the £15 real Christmas tree he bought last Saturday in Newry market has already lost all its needles and looks an absolute state we can reveal.
Jim Fatspatrick who snatched up the ‘bargain’ on Saturday brought the beautiful spruce tree home and decorated it only to discover today that it looks like a tree in Chernobyl.
Jim told Newry Spud:
“I feel like a real sucker. These tree sellers convinced me that £15 for a real tree was a bargain and I thought I’d just go for it to get in the Christmas spirit and all. God it’s an awful sight altogether.”
The tree seller who will be in the market this Saturday selling batteries, DVD’s, shoes and tampons told Newry Spud:
“Here, it looked like a fucking tree when it left here LOL.”
