When Tim Berners-Lee invented 'tinterweb he didn't envisage - he's said this - how much fucking time people would spend looking at kittens while surfing the net.
Similarly, Jesus probably never thought when he was born that his birthday would be celebrated by a series of kitsch rompers specifically for men. Admittedly, he was a baby at the time and, Messiah or no Messiah, his cognitive abilities probably extended to googly eyes and wanting to be fed.
However, a US company called Get On Fleek (probably didn't have to clarify the nationality with that one) has released a series of woefully kitsch but very fun Christmas rompers specifically designed for the man who doesn't feel comfortable celebrating the festive season with, ya know, new socks and some sherry.
The rompers don't come cheap, retailing at $99.99 (£76), with the price soon to rise to $139.99 (£107). However, if you want to be 'that crazy guy' in the office, they certainly look like a worthy addition to the wardrobe.
You could even wear one at the Christmas party. It could be worse. I once gave a subordinate colleague a dressing down at the Christmas party over their lax work ethic whilst dressed as a meerkat. It didn't go well.
There are a few choices to choose from (hence the word choice), including Classic Christmas Ugly Romper and It's Lit Christmas Romper, with a nine-pronged candle on the front (geddit?)
For those still wedded to the notion that Christmas is all about a crap jumper, the company have those, and then some.
Models include a Kim Jong Un green sweater and a Build a Wall (Donny T) sweater. Perhaps if the two leaders actually bought each other one, they might have a good old laugh and a lovely, Christmas, let's not blow the world up conversation.
