ill thought out wording

Posted a comment on Izzy's blog earlier cornish rambler about the brilliantly named Pant Filling station in Wales and it reminded me of something I saw in ASDA a few months back.
ASDA have a wonderful habit of placing little signs hanging off of shelves that point out what they are selling there. These are generally fairly patronising phrases, one of my favourites being effectively foreign muck where anything with a spice in it is placed

As I wandered down the soft drinks isle, I saw the great sign selling 'Lunchbox juice'. Puerile mind or not, thought that was very silly. Thankfully most people I have told that to have found it equally funny so either I am not quite so childish as I first thought or I have just managed to surround myself by people who think a fart joke is 'up there' in the comedy greatest-hits list.

I think I know which ...


  • talking of ill thought out phrases, the other day someone in my office pointed out to someone else that there was a penny on the floor. She replied, "oh I only bend over for notes". There was a pause, as we all comtemplated this image.
