Perfect for your Shocking Stockings!


I miss this blog! I just stopped by to quickly post this gem that Rachel sent me, a long time ago. And as for the rest of you who were kind enough to send me something a long time ago, please don't give up hope! It's all saved and lined up to be shared, any second now... I really do appreciate all the wonderful things that you find for me and take the time to send! It's just that sometimes my real-life life gets the better of my fun-online-life :)

Anyway, on to the good stuff! Check this out:

It took me a couple of times to read through and find all the funny things in there. But there are a bunch - take a look! Which is your favorite? I like the idea that they expect you to launder a suit in this 40x50 centimeter bag, but I'm also quite attached to those sthocking underwears. Underwears! 

Definitely my 21th favorite is trying to pronounce 21th :)

Thanks, Rachel! And thanks all of you for coming by - I'll try to post again soon!

(Don't forget to check out Lesley's fun meme, Signs, Signs, to see signage from all over the world. Have fun!)

I wonder where you buy sthocking underwears? Hmmmm!! Very funny!

Sara said...

Hmmmm....I recall seeing products very similar way back in the 20st Century, and here they are saying it's a new product of the 21th Century.

I'm a bit surprised that "suit" is spelled correctly; that would be an easy one to mess up. That's one point for whoever was in charge of quality control on this packaging.

It really is a shocker isn't it? I am finding it hard to spell, now that I have read your sign, Toby.

I am rather partial to the sthocking underwears, too!

21th century, eh? sthocking!

Interesting that neither "suit" nor "trousers" qualify as "clothes". In fact, I am sthocked, just sthocked... :-)

But for what it's worth, at least they got the Spanish right...

Hi Toby. Glad to see you surface from time to time.
