Dare me?  I really want to place the following Classified in our local paper.  If you think I should, and if it's free or cheap, I think I will.

GIVEAWAY Ugly Christmas Tree.  Impossible to make it look nice.  Consistent performance: looks awful every year.  Would suit decorator up for a challenge.  Phone Givinya 0433 444 555.  Please.

... unless I can find a taker right here, right now? Anyone? Anyone? (crickets.)

Only of course, that's a fake phone number, just in case a reader IS interested. Don't call that. Comment or email ukuleleflyATgmailDOTcom.

(Oh, who am I kidding?)

I once heard of a classified advertisement that said something along the lines of "4 beautiful and 1 very ugly puppies giveaway to good homes". Apparently they gave away the "ugly" puppy 5 times.

Maybe it will work with the Christmas Tree.

Do it!!!

Although, from memory your christmas tree is nice and bushy.

Our tree is very spindly. We mask it by covering it in a million decorations ... mostly made by the children at school/kindy. It is lovely. (hear my sarcasm there?)

I dare you. (And would want to see photographic evidence of the ad, obviously.)
