Hippies and New Age people with sausage hair, are set to converge on the New Forest near Scotland in England, to take part in the biggest sponsored tree hug the world has ever seen. The event which is being organised by some one or other to raise money for Comic Relief, is said to be the first of its kind apart from the failed attempt last year in the Arctic circle.
A bloke I asked to comment who was tenuously linked to the project said that the Arctic tundra was no place for trees and the whole thing was a fiasco. We couldn't find a hall for the after hug party either. It was a bloody mess.
This year, if we can get enough people to link hands and surround a copse, we should get into the Guinness book of Records.
Local wildlife groups have called upon the event to be banned due to habitat destruction but organisers are promising nothing. Last year we busted up some badger setts to raise money.
Normal people have been advised not to make any donations to these cruel bastards.
