‘i’ve got a way to make you hot and cross, bunny’. 

i find this hilarious. its an advert by poundland. 

“I’m afraid side-chick, some of the papers say it’s Bad Hare Day.”

it seems they have been doing it during the christmas with saucy adverts. i missed seeing them then. but here is the link to them. i suppose the advertising authority have been censoring them, since i never did see them over the christmas. i am not on twitter and it seems they posted it on twitter. 

luke, wookie

this website is very spot on. i actually caught that weather report and saw it just when she said those words. and i had my subtitles on and it translated her ‘look’ as ‘luke’. i noticed it but i dont think it translated the ‘lucky’ into ‘wookie’ though when i heard it again, in the video, it did sound like ‘wookie’.

i had a good laugh over it, thanks to these guys in yamadonkey. haha. they are very quick on the uptake, hats off to them to record it and put it up so quickly on the website. and very apt especially tonight, when there was all the hoohaa and live webcam of the premiere opening night of star wars 7 in leicester square.  there are more star wars referrals in that weather report, see if u can spot them. clever of her to put them in so smoothly. 

 added 17.12.15 one newspaper has written about it with some of the star war references. its rather amusing i think.

 

Waitrose totally freaks out

31 Jan

Waitrose totally freaks out.

the dailymash is a spoof, but funny with it. it is cleverly done, and sometimes you wonder if that is not the real reason that everyone knows is the underlying reason but no one wants to say outloud.

this one, about waitrose asking those who come for the free hot drink in their cafe, to buy something also, or they wont be able to get the free hot drink implies that those people are occupying seats and hanging around too long in the cafes. i know it is a spoof, but i wonder if there is a smidgen of the real reason why.

also these people may not be the kind of well dressed customers that go to waitrose, and the other customers may have felt uncomfortable with that. it may not be entirely the management’s fault that they want to keep them out. their usual customers may object to it as well.

i remember reading in some newspapers reporting that waitrose customers have been known to complain that with the free hot drinks it has attracted rather unsavoury types to the store.

the article about the skinny diplodocus skeleton being replaced by a fat blue whale skeleton is hilarous .
