The Christmas snobs are needle-shaming a poor tree in Rome.
Every year there’s a story somewhere of an ugly Christmas tree, with little regard to the poor thing’s feelings.
It’s Rome’s turn, The Guardian reports.
The locals are referring to it as a “toilet brush.”
There’s some real holiday spirit.

About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
