Down with this sort of thing....

When I get over this side of Christmas (as I heard someone on the Luas say this morning) I''m going to start a consitutional referendum campaign to have Crazy Frog and associated franchises included in the Offences against the Person Act...or do I start lobbying politicans??? I think it's a legislative matter - I'll have it all sorted out by the time I get the leaflets printed.
Was powerwalking down Henry Street trying to buy Christmas fairy lights for my sister's 21st birthday party tommorrow night when a Henry street stall seller said to me "did you hear the Crazy Frog teddy? Only 5euro" She then shoved the aforementioned piece of s**** in my face and squeezed its poisonous belly. (**** just in case my mother ever reads this blog - even though she's not aware of its existence)
What is it with the Crazy Frog? I posted on it before and that was a long time ago.
Are we so devoid of taste as a nation that we are reduced to buying Crazy Frog teddies? And flashing lights picture/clocks of Our Lady and the Sacred Heart (the other 5euro bargains on Henry St)?
Or maybe after 3 years on the Northsoide I'm still not fully integrated?

If it is shiny and trashy and makes pointless annoying noise then its all good for the christmas season. I just wish I could ship that christmas season off somewhere far far away and have my own.
