Would it be only Scrooge...

...who would find the current crop of retail store ads for Christmas a bag of humbugs!

Apparently John Lewis is the best of the crop this year according to retail analyst "Verdict". In case you have been on an expedition to the Congolese jungle for the last week or so here is the posting on youtube.

In fact there is only so much snow a man can take in November even if it is on TV and provided by Tesco Sainsburys, Morrisons, Marks and Spencers and the rest. The fact we have a dusting of the white stuff outside today and there have been great dollops in Northumberland and Scotland this week must have something to do with all the snow machines being used by the admen on these productions.

You would think that a comedian like Peter Kay would have better things to do. In fact M&S doesn't even have a store in Chorley. Can we expect his next nationwide tour to be a march through the M&S stores in the land with a routine starting in the food department by the cauliflowers on the left followed by a chasse through the women's lingerie and a final leap to the men's woolly jumpers?

The only conclusion can be he is in training for next year's Strictly!
