In the shops now! More dog-rotten signage
It’s that Marmite part of the site again – the time when we report back from the frontlines of the supermarkets and expose their idiocy when it comes to special offers. Stay tuned because later in the week, we’ll be exclusively revealing which of the big supermarkets managed to chronically mess up a major display, muddling up the spam, jam, ham clams and essence of ram. Doh!
Paul told us: “I was so irate that I came back later once the shop had closed and hurled a thousand cow hearts against the window.” No, of course he didn’t.
Secondly, nextly, lastly and finally, Andy Priestly snapped a wrong-headed shampoo offer in his neighbourhood Asda. Which is it going to be – 2 for £1.86 or 2 for £3? Dare you even try to find out?

Definitely lastly, and as a deviation from the In The Shops Now norm and a vaguely unpleasant afterthought, here’s a sign your correspondent spotted on the back of a van in Sunderland – from a signwriter who is also a self-proclaimed ‘oral sex specialist.’ Funny, we thought that’s what ‘gold leaf and gilding’ and ‘window decals’ was anyway… but click on the pic for a closer look.
