"Martha Stewart Can Lick My Scrotum!" Life chez the Osbournes

David Dalton, Gadfly, 17 May 2002

And an effin’ ol’ punk Xmas special it was, featuring Sid'n'Nance under a tree decorated with needles and condoms, discussing PTA meetings, mortgages, and who’s gonna take out the fuckin’ garbage. I bring this up because I can’t help thinking of Sid & Nancy’s Xmas Special whenever I see The Osbournes on MTV.
