People Not Flocking to Buy Maplewood Man's $700 "Flocked" Christmas Trees

Posted By on Tue, Dec 22, 2009 at 4:28 PM

Hmm. Maybe its the staggering price tag mixed with the horseshit economy. Or perhaps it's that "flocked" Christmas trees really did reach their zenith in the 1940s and '50s.

But as Fox 2's John Auble recently discovered, a local businessman's old-tyme Christmas venture appeared "flocked" from the beginning.
 
Oh, and speaking of 1940s and '50s stereotypes, is there a bigger one in the news biz than John Auble?

Dude looks like he was dispatched from central casting. His trench coat is unbelievable, but where's the fedora with the "Press" placard?
