Commercial Break: Wondering why unemployment is so high...?

15 September 2010

You know what, we’re pretty bloody sick of that lot, coming over here from abroad and nicking all the jobs while the country is in the grip of an economic downturn.

We’re not speaking about foreigners here, but household appliances. Obviously. A new bunch of adverts for totaljobs.com shows how all kinds of inanimate objects are snapping up the best jobs by using their website. It’s infuriating.

Toasters teaching fitness classes, alarm clocks driving trucks, vacuum cleaners creating the finest foods in the fanciest kitchens – they’re all turning their backs on their chosen professions and spreading their wings. They’ll be telling us that one of those walking, talking dolls can become Chancellor of the Exchequer next. Hang on...

    Where can I get a goblin teasmaid?

    These adverts make no sense. I'm sick of them clogging up Xfm's airwaves because they're so bloody stupid. I don't get why household appliances are talking? What has a talking toaster got to do with job hunting? God help us if these shitty ads appear on TV.

    Given that God is infinite, and that the universe is also infinite...would you like a toasted tea-cake?

    I want a Cylon toaster like the one on the Big Bang Theory.

    I want to be a toaster. But when I search it says "There are currently 0 jobs matching your search criteria. Try changing your search or choose one of the links below." What to do?

    @David Stick a piece of bread up your arse in the middle of town and offer random passers by fresh toast, where is your initiative man?
  • David
    @Jax I was meaning in terms of master of ceremonies available for weddings etc. I would propose the toast. Not sure you're really helping but thanks for the advice anyway.
