Too real


Norway sends a big Christmas tree to England every year as a thank you for the help during WWII and as a symbol of continued friendship. Unfortunately the 2021 tree wasn’t up to the standards Londoners expected.

Finland and Poland should send an utterly dead and rotting tree to England as a thanks for all the help during the WW2.

Seems to have lost the needles and branches on one side since it was cut down.

Admit it UK, you had that tree dragged from the port becuse you couldn't find a lorry driver.

I was embarassed and disgusted at the ungrateful comments from people complaining about the way the tree looked.

It’s a natural tree, that has been growing for decades and Norway gives us it for free! I think people are too used to fake trees and augmented trees and trees of a certain species that they can’t appreciate a beautiful tree for what it is.

If history had been reversed, I bet the UK wouldn’t still be giving Norway a free tree every year.

this is what the tree looks like, it's not as bad as the comic (I think Humon made it look worse for comedic effect) and honestly, I think once they decorate the tree it'll look a lot nicer

I honestly love the star on top I dunno why just makes it look so cute

It's a gift. We should be grateful to receive it. Thank you, Norway.

What's the problem? You got a free tree! So it lost a bit of foliage in its travels - who cares? The old adage "Never look a gift horse in the mouth" is appropriate here.

For quite a few years, the christmas trees being sent to London have been below the expected standard.
I saw a picture of the tree as it was being cut down, and I agree that it was below par. I don't understand why they can't find good trees years in advance, and make sure they stay good by giving them more air/light and some fertilizer. I honestly don't understand why that should be very difficult. It seems like Norway doesn't care anymore. Although I do agree that the brits might have too high expectations.
