HotUKDeals Of The Day - Monday 21st September

21 September 2009

hukd_logob1When we try and imagine the typical Bitterwallet reader, we like to think of someone with a busy social schedule, an inquisitive mind and a vast collection of small, brightly-coloured plastic balls.

That’s you isn’t it? We knew it was. Today’s HotUKDeals of the day are dedicated just to you. Oh, stop blushing…

472467The Christmas shopping whistle has been well and truly blown and you can start getting your cheap stocking fillers in now – a large softback Moleskine 2010 planner isn’t a bad one to start with. It’s just £5.49 delivered as opposed to its RRP of £15.50.

Of course, there’s always the fear that once you’ve got it, you’ll start realising just how empty your bloody stupid life really is. Admit it – you’ll be filling in the days when your recycling bin gets emptied or when Adam Ant’s birthday is.

473167Have you been wondering where you can find the world’s largest squirrel, the world's fattest butcher or the world's curliest wurly? Maybe you’re dying to know who is the quickest in the world when it comes to setting up a direct debit or building a tractor out of liquorice?

You need the latest version of the Guinness Book Of Records. The 2010 edition has just been released and can be had for just £5.00. There’ll be a small outlay of printer ink involved as you’ll need to print out a voucher, but otherwise, you really can’t grumble. Unless you’re the world record holder for grumbling! Ha!

472814Finally a load of old balls. Well, they’re new balls but we digress. It’s a pack of 100 playballs for just £2.50. The kind you can put in an empty paddling pool and let your kids thrash around in for hours instead of actually looking after them.

Just don’t follow the example of Austrian poet Klaus Schinkel. In 2007, he gathered 10,000 of these balls, filled up a 30 foot well close to his home and then jumped in, slowly falling through the balls and drowning in them over a four-hour period. Shocking, and also untrue.
