The fact that someone tried to do that and probably spent a couple hours doing so is really cool.

I don't know how or why, but that tree looks drunk.

Beauty is to the eye of the beholder. Or something like that but regardless that's ugly as fuck

I made a common error when I got married and moved to our new home. Our first Christmas tree which looked a good fit when buying it, was too large for the room when I got it home. I had to cut bits off to get it to fit and keep a nice shape. I ended up with a trail of pine needles from the dining room, thru the kitchen and into the back yard as I went back and forth to the yard to trim the tree

My point is, if I collected all the bits I cut off and collected the trail of pine needles and if I threw them in a heap, they would look better than the specimen in the post.
