I dunno though, I once picked up a can of cat food that seemed suspiciously light, ripped off the ring-pull top and tipped into the cats' bowl to reveal ONE SMALL CUBE of meat in an entire can of gravy.
I dunno though, I once picked up a can of cat food that seemed suspiciously light, ripped off the ring-pull top and tipped into the cats' bowl to reveal ONE SMALL CUBE of meat in an entire can of gravy. My several cats looked at it and at me with disgust, and I was hysterical with laughter for about an hour.
When I calmed down I sent the label and a polite letter back to the company, and received an apology and a hefty voucher for more Whiskas or whatever which I donated to the local cats' rescue. I'd had my fun!
Impoverished students would send word around that they had scored a load of goodies from companies, if they complained of being disappointed in their products. My flatmate decided to give it a try. He did genuinely find a hard lump of compacted pastry in the tinned pie and hoped this was his passport to many more of the same.
A fortnight of waiting for the hamper - or voucher - we were easy but a bit hungry.
What arrived was a short letter, informing us the High Street, Bethesda had a history of housing gourmets, who were very easily upset by some of the natural irregularities of mass-produced foodstuffs. They wished us well, when we graduated!
Edit 08.30 pm. Thinking of this again, I recall that we had high hopes of our Bethesda house with its own front door and street address. We had given up on getting freebies delivered to Halls-of-Residence under various made-up names. These were the days of the book & record clubs, who were supposed to send out stuff "on approval." Perhaps the early-birds snagged these but the address was soon regarded as a very bad risk for recruiting genuine buyers!
A pub landlord who commissioned a film showing animals being tortured to death for his sexual kicks was jailed for nine months yesterday.
Brian McCann, 47, paid £1,500 for the home-made video, known as a "crush" or "squish" movie. The film showed a number of small pets being stamped on by women wearing high heels and short skirts, Snaresbrook Crown Court in east London heard. The footage included a scene in which a kitten was glued to the floor and killed by a woman with her stiletto heels.
