Bungalow5_Thursday Talks_Christmas Tree in Paris_Kahler_Butt Plug

I dag skal vi have det sjovt. Eller det håber jeg. Jeg synes i hvert fald det er hylende sjovt. Hysterisk egentlig. Den sidste uges tid har nyheden om et såkaldt juletræ i Paris floreret på de sociale medier. Det hele startede med ovenstående billede og teksten ”Sorry Paris town planners but I’m not seeing a Christmas tree”.

Og det kan der være noget om. Juletræet, eller rettere, den gigantiske grønne ting, minder mere om noget man finder i en sexshop. Og mere end 5.000 retweets er enige med mig … ”Look, a giant Christmas butt plug”. Selv kunne jeg ikke dy mig. Jeg skrev; ”I only see a Kähler Christmas Candleholder … is that what you mean?”.

Jeg er sikker på mange andre også har kigget på Kählers juletræer, lanceret for et par år siden, og tænkt; De tager sgu røven på os, helt bogstaveligt! For helt ærligt, Kählers juletræslysestager og ”juletræet” i Paris er jo – one giant butt plug. Og Kählers butt plugs (for lad os nu bare kalder dem for det de er!) var udsolgt inden de nærmest nåede hylderne. I år kommer de endda i flere farver – og vent … new sizes!

Spørgsmålet er nu, har folk den rent faktisk stående i vindueskarmen eller er har folk købt dem for at slippe for at luske rundt i Istedgade? Hvis det første er tilfældet, så står folk i ramme alvor og pakker grønne butt plugs ud, sætter i vinduet, smider et stearinlys i og kalder det julepynt? COME ON!!

Jamen okay så. Kähler og Paris kalder åbenbart deres for juletræer – vi andre kalder dem butt plugs. God jul.

So today we are going to have some fun. Or I hope, that is. I think it is screamingly funny. Hysterical actually. During these last few days the news of the so-called Christmas tree in Paris prevailed on social media. It all started with the above picture and the tweet ”Sorry Paris town planners but I’m not seeing a Christmas tree”.

And well yes, it seems accurate. The Christmas tree, or rather, the gigantic green ting, reminds me of something you would find in a sex shop. And more than 5.000 retweets agrees … ”Look, a giant Christmas butt plug”. I couldn’t help myself. I wrote; ”I only see a Kähler Christmas Candleholder … is that what you mean?”

I am sure that many others have looked at Kähler’s Christmas trees, launched a couple of years ago, and thought; they honestly do lead us up the garden path. As I see it, Kählers Christmas candleholders and the  ”Christmas Tree” in Paris is in fact – one giant butt plug. And even better, Kähler’s butt plugs (lets call them what they are!) were sold out before they even hit the stores. This year they even come in different colours – and wait for it … new sizes!

My question is now, do people honestly have these standing in their windows or have people bought them to avoid the awkward moment being caught on there way out of a sex shop? If the first point really is true, then you honestly want me to believe that there is people out there, that unwrap the green butt plugs by Kähler, putt them in there window, sticks in a candle and call it Christmas decoration? COME ON!

Okay then. So Kähler and Paris calls it a Christmas tree – everyone else calls them butt plugs! Merry Christmas!
