Bring It On

We are spending Christmas with the Prof's family down in Kent, so I wanted us to have tasteful  Christmas jumpers for the event.

I did want this Walking Dead jumper but it proved to be too expensive, so I bought this monstrosity at Sainsbury's today
Waddu think?
Is it me or does the bear have a noticeable and actual double chin!

  11. Sorry don't like who's it suppose to be? Paddington? Prefer the top one. But if you like it that's all that matters.

  12. John I don't think a 'tasteful' Christmas jumper exists...they are all pretty woeful...I do see a family resemblance with the polar bear jumper though...I think you can pull it off if you top it with a red pom pom hat x

  18. Just wear it with your crocs. The family will not know which to comment on and will hastily grab a gin.

  19. Good to see that the bear's ears are hiding your moobs.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Couldnt you have just worn antlers. That sweater does make a statement "more money than sense". Does Christmas make you crazy....

  21. I thought it was a bulldog at first. You're adorable. Sweater is delightfully ghastly

    ReplyDelete
  22. It's YOU. Don't take that wrong. :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. That's one cool polar bear

    ReplyDelete
  24. Lucky you, only one of the bears has a double chin!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh John. I m speechless.

    ReplyDelete
  26. On anyone else it would be very wrong, but you can pull it off.

  27. At first glance I thought you Winnie had tied around your waist. Second glance, it looked like you Winnie tied around your waist, going to go clean my glasses now.

  28. That's not a bear - it's Winnie!

  29. "Double chin?" I thought that part was your roly poly tummy!!!!!

  30. weeellll... It's definitely a double chin, and its eminently huggable, so I guess it is perfect for a family christmas.....

    ReplyDelete
  31. At least a double chin.
    That is a most excellent jumper.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think he has some scottish eggs tucked into his cheeks as well... :D

  33. Black makes you look slimmer!

  34. Great fun. We have three of husband's family here over Christmas. I did think yesterday that it might be fun to all have a festive jumper & saw some lovely ones but will have to suffice with cheap supermarket ones.

    ReplyDelete
  35. It really suits you, John.

    ReplyDelete
  36. You can be doing all sorts of things whilst folk are fixing on the bear.

  37. Hilarious!!! that jumper is better than the one Colin whats his name wore in Bridget Jones' diary.. you know the 'snap' ones where they both wore the same... don't think you could find two like that one John... gonna be some party!

  38. Definite chins there and a hint of Winnie about it!

    ReplyDelete
  39. It has to be said, it was made for you x

    ReplyDelete
  40. Either it has a double chin or the wearer has a spare tyre or two.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Fab. I have reason to believe that if you are seen sporting a "tasteful" Christmas jumper you might have the wrong end of the stick!

  42. Oh, it's a bear? I thought it was a pug dog, which made no sense... John doesn't have a pug!

    ReplyDelete
  43. It's so you. Just Perfect! What's the Prof wearing? I hope something equally as tacky.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm going to look like your sweater after I'm finished with the shortbread this season. Love it. Temp is -20C, feels like `33 with the wind chill here in Alberta today. Just a tad fresh outside

    ReplyDelete
  45. It looks to me like the printing was a bit out-of-line, which caused that double chin. Either way, yes, he definitely has a double chin. And, although that sweater (sorry, Jumper) could possibly win a "Worst Christmas Sweater" competition, I am SO glad the Walking Dead Christmas sweater was too expensive. THAT would put ME off my dinner (the sweater itself is very elegant but zombies at the Christmas dinner table?).

  46. Oh, you should have splashed out and bought the rather wonderful Santa on toboggan/skull and crossbones jumper. And why does the bear have no eyes? Was it involved in a tragic accident?

    ReplyDelete
  47. Gorgeous and cuddly! It is made for you. Be warned, though, people will want to play with your bobble!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Love it!!!
    We have an ugly Christmas sweater party this Saturday. Not only did I purchase an ugly sweater, I bought leggings to really stand out. I may post a photo. Maybe you should have us all share our ugly sweater moments???

  49. False economy, the walking dead sweater could be worn all year but the bear is already half way to the back of the cupboard.

  50. I think perfect . . .
