Published Dec 24, 2010We already knew he was a genetic mutant neanderthal, but it appears the other DNA that makes up Ozzy Osbourne is more Grinch than human being. The word-slurring metal forefather has revealed that he would be happier if the annual festivities were banned altogether.
In a column for the Sunday Times [via WENN], Ozzy called bullshit on Christmas, saying, "All this '10 more shopping days to go' bollocks is such a wind-up. I ain't exactly Mr. Holy, but what's that got to do with Baby Jesus being born?... The faster we get to New Year's Day 2011, the better... Christmas should be banned. Full stop."
He then admits his true reason for hating the season -- he can't get wasted. "Although when I was drinking, I thought it was great, 'cos it was the perfect excuse to get blasted," he wrote. "Now I can't stand any of it."
Poor Ozzy. Maybe Sharon can let him fall of the wagon with a little spiked eggnog, just this week?
