It will soon be Christmas and so everybody is in a filthy mood. We have decided, for example, to provoke war with Iran by sending in Chris de Burgh, a move specifically forbidden by the Geneva Convention. Meanwhile, Terry Eagleton says, 'I did not do this book about Jesus just to piss off Martin Amis.' Yeah, right. Creationists are planning a British theme part disproving evolution with the sole intention of melting Richard Dawkins. Fabulous Acapella says he wants to restore national pride to the worst football team in the world. This is a clear attempt to provoke Wayne Rooney, who won't even mime the national anthem. And, finally, Mervyn King is provoking Hal by asking him to do something constructive. Guys, guys, it's Christmas.
