Christmas Party Legends

The time for agency Christmas parties, where good cheer and herpes are spread throughout the company, is drawing near.

In the interests of improving the content of this site, does anyone have any classic/funny/painfully embarassing stories to share from parties of the past?

You can* change the names to protect the innocent/guilty/clap-ridden goat botherers.

*What I really mean here is "don't"

Pete Moore's Christmas speech a few year's back where he said "I fucking love to fuck the fucking Cookie bear." Highlight/lowlight for me.

Rat-arse creative team, hanging like gorillas out of speeding train window while in caboose, scowling CD is flung about like pea in drum, fag glued in gob, giving everyone the finger.

Foul-mouthed Financial Controller attempts to cycle home, stops for 'rest' on riverbank, passes out, gets rolled by passing mob of 'youf'.

Hoping for more of same this year.

Xmas parties at the old Colenso in Wellington. Home of the meanest secret Santas in the world. One was a gift from a creative to a long-suffering PA to a rather unpopular Aussie Account Director. She had to sit on Santa's knee and opened the first present. It was a gas pistol.Then at the end of the room another present was opened. Out popped a balloon with the Account Director's face on it. She was then instructed to fire the pistol. The "head" exploded, showering everyone in the room with fake blood. Cost a fortune to replace the upholstery at Flipp...

I'm going to the Braincell Xmas party in Tauranga.

No, honestly, I am.

Apparently it's going to be a really nice morning tea, followed by a ride on the owners Harley.

Kool, I'm so hyped.

Then I'm going to help them with some cutting edge results driven classified ads.

Classic $5 anonymous Xmas present was a telegraph cucumber along with accompanying paper bag with eyes cut out for the office loud-mouth bitch.

Immediately reduced her to tears and caused a sensation of finger pointing and wholesale humour loss.

Inspired. Respect.

Has the big 'C' lost the big 'B' to the 'Y'?

I understand the 'C' and I'm pretty sure I get the 'Y' but kinda lost on the 'B'.

Secret Santa is great cause it's the only place you can publicly degrade someone and remain anonymous.

Oh, hang on...
