August, 2009:

Onset of Christmas Delayed?

A guerrilla campaign to delay the early outbreak of Christmas [^] has started in Leeds, England.

Oxfam Christmas Card

Four shops have been warned that they face having their locks superglued if they display Christmas card before 1st November. One charity shop in the area, mental health group “Mind”, has already had it’s locks glued [^]. The evocatively named “Campaign for the Containment of Xmas” have claimed responsibility.

There is no mention of whether Contain Christmas campaign is likely to go national or even international.

CannibalRabbit appreciates that someone is willing to provoke some discussion about the selling of Christmas merchandise so early in the year. We do not, however,  condone the threat of criminal damage. We also have to point out that the campaign could be construed as being counterproductive; we now have the national newspapers publishing “Christmas” stories in August.

The simplest answer to this problem is: Just say “No” to Christmas before late November.

Face Plates

It was almost love at first sight when I saw this kids face plate [^] in the neatorama [^] store.

food face plates

Amazingly a few days before Mum had said that she wanted some more breakfast plates. It turns out that these are just on 22cm, falling nicely between tea and dinner plate size.

Does this mean that I have just found Mum’s Christmas present?

Organ Donation

I’ve posted before about the work of the Shirt.Woot people (UpgraDead and Rampaging Rabbit T-Shirt).


Give Till It Hurts[^] is the first serious t-shirt there that I have seen, and one of the best. As the blog post says “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.”

Organ Donation is something important that everyone needs to talk about. It has the potential to be literally life altering or even life saving, as a friend is just discovering. Most people wouldn’t say no if they or a loved one needed a replacement organ, but would they be willing to donate? I hope that the answer is an emphatic “YES!”

It probably isn’t the sort of thing that you would want to wear after you have seen The Meaning of Life though.
