Holly Barbed Wire

Deck the Walls with Barbs of Holly.
  [vote for,

On the off chance that you didn't notice, the Christmas season is rapidly approaching us. Soon there will be nary an undecked hall to be found.

But while you're setting up your Christmas tree and fairy lights, spare a thought for the companies and prisons that can't have bright or colourful things without ruining the serious and threatening nature of their security defences.

The razor sharp barbed wire holly solves this problem by allowing security measures to be festive without detracting from the imposing nature of the fence. Ideal for business security, prison walls, prison impounds, government installations or country borders. Sold in spools of variable length and berry count.

Not the best illustration ever, but it's probably the best I've done yet. [hidden truths, Nov 24 2005]

       Nice idea. Christmas ideas are not technically allowed until 1st December, but I'm sure we'll let you off.   

       Would this be real Holly? or a modified razorwire that looks like holly?   

       In a similar vein, surely there is also an application for Brussels Sprouts within the Penal system?

       I'm not sure I agree that those criminals deserve any holly. But the people in prisons and in neighboring coutries are not so bad.

       That was originally going to be my summary line [zen_tom].
And surely everyone could do with a little Christmas spirit [sleeka].
