The Daily Teaser — 3-12-2014

Did I tell you about Lighting Up Brentwood … ?

Lighting Up Brentwood is my home town’s annual Lighting Up ceremony/day.   Basically, it’s the day when Brentwood High Street’s Christmas lights get switched on.

It was Saturday, just gone: the 29th of November, in other words.

And absolutely bonkers, I should add: at least, at work.   We were, not putting too fine a point on it, hammered!

One upshot of being that busy — and knackered, frankly — is I’ve only just noticed this year’s Christmas tree.

Yeah, THAT one … the one in the photo … ?

Is it just me, or does that look some form of butt plug?

Hmmm … 

Possibly just me, then … 


But let’s move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi* putting in her answers: and scoring five out of five.

Let’s see how everyone does with today’s questions, shall we?

Here they are, along with the How To, License and video …
