“Am I going to put the Christmas tree up myself? No, I’m going to put it up in the living room!”

A somewhat NSFW Christmas tree joke was posted on Twitter by Andy L Smith on December 18, 2009:

“I bought a Christmas tree today The girl in the shop asked if I was going to put it up myself I said no I’ll be putting it up in the lounge.”

The usual place is the living room. “Bought a Xmas tree. Bloke in the shop asked if I was putting it up myself. I said, ‘Certainly not, I’m putting it up in the living room’” was posted on Twitter by Paul Twinn on December 3, 2010.

The joke has been printed on several images.

Believe it or not, yesterday I purchased a Christmas tree from our garden centre. “Will you be putting that up yourself?” asked the smiling assistant. I cast a withering glance and growled: “Don’t be disgusting. I’m putting it up in the living room.”

Christmas Tree
Last Christmas we bought a fake Christmas tree and the guy behind the counter asked my dad, “Are you going to put it up yourself?” and my dad said “Don’t be disgusting...I’m going to put it up in the living room!”

Heard over Christmas. Guy walks in a shop and buys a Christmas tree, tinsle and lights. The cashier looks at it all and asks “are you going to put that up yourself? “
No he replies “I’m going to put it up in the living room.......”

I cut down a Christmas tree today. My daughter asked me if I was going to put it up myself.
I told her “No, I’m going to put it up in the living room.”
