K.A.C. 2015 - T - 9 ...

     It's Christmas Potpourri Day here at the K.A.C. - true to the name, there's something for everyone  ... and it has a distinctive smell!      

     First up, no matter HOW many decorations you may put up each year, they can't compete with this! Thanks, Robin, for posting it!
 
     Next, there are numerous Christmas carol albums released this time of year, each with their own unique spin or artist. I usually don't cover the new releases unless they're TRULY extraordinary - but I think this one fits the bill! If you're looking for a new take on Christmas music or a gift for someone you don't REALLY like that much, but feel obligated to get a gift for, then look no further than the GOAT Christmas album ... does it have goats in the lyrics, you ask? Is it dedicated to goats by the artists involved? No and no - the ENTIRE album is SUNG BY GOATS !!! The album is called "All I Want For Christmas Is A Goat" and you will NEVER hear more cacophonus carols in your life! 

     Your ears will bleed (or is that bleat?) for a good cause, as the album is put out for charity. It also makes a GREAT wake-up alarm for recalcitrant teenagers (or anyone) who won't get out of bed ... not that I'm considering that ... :)

     Here's the link, plus some sample Goat Edition carols!

     With only nine days to go, are you still looking for that one-of-a-kind gift to give that certain special someone? Nothing says "Merry Christmas" like the gift of ... radium! This and other TRULY odd gifts (like RUBBLE ...) are explored in "The Weirdest Christmas Gifts in London's History" link below!

      Speaking of London, should you ever find yourself there for the holidays, make sure you make a beeline to Hyde Park to take in the Winter Wonderland amusement park! Because nothing says Christmas like a Grim Reaper decked out in festive holiday garb playing melancholy carols on his violin! Like any Christmas miracle worth its salt, there's so much more: the squatting polar bears, the neon oak tree (who looks suspiciously like an Ent), the dead-eyed Santas haunting the park ... it's a must-see destination for the offbeat holiday reveler!

      Finally, just to show the UK is keeping their end up on weird Christmas gifts, click on the link below to see what passes for acceptable presents. From Pushy Pops (a tube that mashes up your food that you then squeeze - or as they call it, "a plunger for your mouth") to the Toilet Mug, the truly creepy Anti-Ageing Mask and the jaw-dropping Weener Kleener Soap for Men (seen at left), with the all-time BEST ad line (I TRULY hope the ad man got a bonus for this) - "Large or small or inbetweener, nothing beats a Cleaner Weener!", put these under the tree and claim your bragging rights for 'winning' Christmas! Take a look at the presents in all their infamous glory (and make sure to click on the accompanying videos)!
