This can't be a serious quote.  And if it is, I hope this woman has a a stroke for Christmas.

Dashperiod reported Knightsbridge visitors were stunned, quoting one woman as saying, “I was with my grandchildren. We had just gotten off the bus. I said ‘look everybody’ and pointed up to the lights – but you know what the lights said? They said f**k off. And that is not an appropriate message for a child. At least not at Christmas time.”

Steve, call me dense, but I really don't see what is wrong with that woman's reaction.  I am sure I would be chuckling under my breath, but I agree with her point.

It's just such a fucking retarded thing to say that it's not appropriate for children, especially at Christmas.  Who is arguing that it is a good Christmas message for children?  It is what it is, don't say something stupid to make it worse.  It's not like they're going to start putting it in Hallmark cards.  It's a fucking prank.  I hope someone tells her grandkids to fuck off for Easter or Columbus Day.

So you agree with her point but want her to have a stroke?  I guess I was very slow on the uptake on that bit of whimsy.....Pranks like this make me laugh, I will concede that, but the whole point of the prank was to invoke responses precisely like this.

So am I missing something?  The last paragraph of the article reads:

"After causing a raucous storm on Twitter and becoming a top trending hit on Google, it has been revealed that the whole affair was a lighthearted joke, and in fact Harrods world renowned Christmas décor remain unharmed and glittering as ever."

Doesn't this imply that the whole Harrods light story is a work?  So there doesn't exist a Lloyd Hudson nor a dopey woman worried about the sanctity of Christmas. What does exist, however, is the benefits to be gained from reading to the very end of an article.

Point conceded.  So was it a work?

It was a prank, big deal.

I would have laughed at it.

In fact, I think I will tailor my christmas lights to leave the same message depending on how I turn them on

Nobody in Britain says "gotten".  And there's no Merkans here because you're all unemployed or snowed out or something.  So there's your clue it's a fake.
