Co-op - now sitting on shoplifter's faces

It probably says something about Bitterwallet that we think this all seems very dirty, and that we've got mucky minds... but at a Co-op, a shoplifter got his face sat on by a member of staff. Those who went to the store in Stroud over the weekend, may well have been greeted with the sight…

WH Smith's bizarre concept on drinking their booze

You'll know that retailers have to impose all manner of rules on customers that are buying booze. They advise you drink responsibly and ask you not to drink them on the premises and all that jazz. However, at WH Smith, they have drinking rules that are, to say the least, conceptual. As you can see…

Want Pat Butcher baps on your wall?

Making your house your home is very important. Those magnolia walls need livening up with something that says you live there. Something that reflects your personality. Your house needs these statement pieces so people know that, when they walk through your door, they nod approvingly and say 'Yeah, this guy is totally a Naked Pat…

Want knickers that look soiled? Urine luck!

Urban Outfitters are selling some knickers for £5, reduced from £35, which is a good price right? However, these 'Under Protection Tina Briefs in White and Lime' have a major flaw. They'll make you look like you've pissed yourself. The blurb on the site says: "Danish label Under Protection specialises in creating beautiful underwear from…

Cineworld causing mild grief with allocated seating

Listen up everyone - the world is coming to an end. Cineworld is trialling allocated seating and the internet is going into meltdown. It started off with someone called We Are Vultures (real name, Weven R. Vultures) sending a snotty tweet to Cineworld Cinemas, who then had the audacity to tell the truth.   This…

Men! Check out this sickening half-thong

Men. Have you ever looked down at your nether regions and thought - 'these underpants... there's just too much of them. People should be able to see more of my junk'. Well, if you went from boxers to jockeys, to briefs to a high cut tanga thong, and found yourself still too covered up for…

Another bootleg DVD with a killer review

You may recall a fine, fine review spotted on a dodgy bootleg of Old Boy we shared (if you missed it, have a look here) and it seems to be quite the thing in the Far East. Now, a knock-off of Shrek sees another killer one-line review which says "good, but not great." Wouldn't it…

Hemel Hempstead is the ugliest town in Britain

It seems unfair that Hemel Hempstead, home of the first purpose-built multi storey car park in Britain, should be named the UK’s most unattractive town. But in a survey run by the website Crap Towns Returns, it seems that Hemel is even worse than its close rival Luton. 3000 people took part in the survey,…

'We left your Amazon package in a safe place' they said...

Getting a parcel delivered when you're out isn't so bad because you can breathe easy knowing that the postman will leave a red 'you were out' card, or leave it in a safe place for you to find. One delivery person found a novel solution to this problem.

Lazy hacks and the case of the Wanky Balls festival

You know the festival called The Big Chill? Did you know it used to be called The Wanky Balls Festival? No? Well, if you read the Independent recently, that's what you would have learned: It won't surprise you that Big Chill was never called Wanky Balls, Sweaty Nads, Greasy Schlong or anything else for that…

At last - cinemas get 3D glasses especially for kids

In a move that’s so blindingly obvious that it’s incredible that it hasn’t happened before now, kid-sized 3D glasses are to be rolled out to cinemas in time for the release of Toy Story 3 in the United States of A this weekend. Sheesh - they'll be bringing out raisin taps next! Most of the…

Rewriting rock history with knock-off t-shirts

Half Man Half Biscuit ironically sang about Joy Division oven gloves, as branding the most miserable band in music history is one of the more difficult things to do. That was, I presume, the joke. However, once, I saw a t-shirt in Urban Outfitters which featured the artwork for the group's 'Unknown Pleasures' LP, complete…
