Here’s what happens when you put a floating Christmas tree in the river and decide to make it twice as tacky as last year, but forget that there’s an all-time record flood on the way.
Your giant floating Christmas tree breaks its cables and scoots off downriver, before crashing into a bridge so that you have to call the cops who all stand around with their hands in their pockets looking at the fucking thing, while they wait for a crane to arrive.
Welcome to Limerick 2009.
The poor old tree is looking bit sad now, but then again, it never looked too good anyway, did it?
