A Nation of Brain Dead Numpties - Marks and Spencers
It would seem that "brain dead numptiness" is spreading like a veritable plague, even that bastion of British shopping Marks and Spencer has come down with it.
Andree Evans, from South Mimms, recently toddled along to her local M&S to buy a birthday card.
She went to the checkout to pay, and the till beeped. Fortunately the M&S assistant was on hand to override the till.
Gosh, what could be wrong?
Nothing, for Andree was over 25.
What are you saying Ken?
Ah, my loyal readers, I neglected to describe the nature of the card.
Was it porn?
It had a photo of a wine glass, a corkscrew, five bottles of wine and another empty glass.
The problem my loyal readers is that the picture related to booze, Nanny hates booze (not as much as she hates "weed", but she really does hate booze) and as such the card could not be sold to people who are under 25.
That at least was the view of the people at M&S who programmed the till, and the assistant who explained it to Ms Evans.
I assume Christmas cards featuring Santa are also age restricted, since he is a fat, red faced man who likes young children to sit on his lap and happily visits them in their bedrooms when their parents are asleep?
Sad to see M&S have gone down with "brain dead numptiness". Maybe we should send them a "get well" card?
Oh, but we had better be sure that it doesn't contain any pictures of booze; would a picture of boobs or "meat and two veg" be OK instead?
Drop them a note here M&S.
Visit The Orifice of Government Commerce and buy a collector's item.
Visit The Joy of Lard and indulge your lard fantasies.
Show your contempt for Nanny by buying a T shirt or thong from Nanny's Store.
