    el-ahrairah forward communism, forward gerbils!

    in our house we currently have a large tub of greek yoghurt labelled with a football and the slogan "Ideal for football"

    it doesn't say how or why this should be the case.

    what have you see that is being desperately branded in the hope that some football crazed fool will pick it up cos it's the world cup?

    There's that one for tellies where the man tells his wife they need to buy a new one so they can watch SaTC in HD together or something, but it's really for the World Cup.

    Because burds don't like footie y'knaa? Only blurks. Burds just like chick flicks and stuff with posh shoes in it. :rolleyes: :facepalm:

    The Boy danny la rouge is probably wrong.

    The Carrefour next to my mum's house has a massive inflatable football on the roof. unfortunately the weather has been glorious so we've not had a chance to open a Book on the football being blown into the car park.

    Fat Boy Slim - unofficial dj of the world cup.

    i.e. He got himself some gigs in South America.

    (to be fair i saw him in Malaysia during his Japan world cup tour and it was pretty damn good)

    Nothing specific. Perhaps they mean the whole shop?

    Pretty much every brand of lager.

    Because the English only really consume alcohol over special events - weddings, World cups, days ending in 'y'...

    They do look a bit rushed.

    Oh that's perfect. Lack of specificity, a football logo, vaguely brazilian colours. could be referring to haemmeroid cream or lager or socks or cauliflowers. superb.

    39p is a good price for a can of fizzy sugar water though. they lose points for being bargainous!

    Fuck off. that's the only one to avoid. red Cola in particular is a regal beverage.

    My fondness for Barr has nothing to do with the fact we used to nick s hundred or so bottles from the cleaning plant every week and take them back to every newsagent,off-licence and chippy e could find to collect the 20p deposits.

    I saw an ad for Subway last night which recreated a young Daniel Sturridge being inspired to eat their tat by Pelé, who retired 12 years before Sturridge's birth. Quite why Pelé felt the need to appear in it I'm really not sure.

    Today I purchased some Jaffa Cakes, possibly influenced by the picture of a football on it and the word 'gooooaaalll!' on it
