Subway ads where they pretend their vegan shite is actually meat then turn it around as if they couldn't tell in the first place. Then the small print says the vegan shite may have been cooked along with normal grub. That will go down well with the weirdos

The Sky VIP thing where they reward long-term customers.

Especially the woman who comes home to be told, "I've finished setting up [your new Sky Q box], and I've made you a cup of tea as well." They don't show him saying, "Oh, and after I've gone you'll find I've wanked in your knicker drawer."

Am sure someone else will have mentioned it but the Vitality segments on Sky News with that wee dog alongside some "celebrity" athletes, making some god awful unfunny quip about say cricket, in a stab your ear tone of voice. I shout f**k off at the telly whenever I see or hear that dug.

Just watched an advert from some Shylocks called oakam.com,making it sound like lending at 1300% apr is doing someone a favour. I thought arseholes like them were getting banned.

Now that's a racist trope.

Hmm, who did you used to be then? Try looking up the definition, means a loan shark & has zero Semitic connations in the way I used it.

Today, “shylock” is considered an antisemitic slur and, after being called out by the Anti-Defamation League, Biden apologized for his “poor choice of words.”

I don't believe in reincarnation so, for better or worse, will always be me.

Fairynuff, I was meaning it in the dictionary definition of a loan shark with no racial or religious insult intended. I am intrigued though, given your username, if you genuinely haven't been on here before, did you just join & then try to search out any references to Shakespeare to reply to?

Ha, no. I hadn't even made that connection I was just browsing through topics that I thought might be amusing. I saw your assertion that something was racist and thought I would be a bit arsey too. Pie and Bovril can be a semantic minefield so I will  tread warily.

Yeah I am pretty much as mild & beige as it gets on here unless something really grinds my gears. You would have made an enemy for life with some posters & marshy would have stuck you on ignore which would have enriched his forum experience massively.

"Housebarresment"

So some Aussie p***k flaps his arms and declares "We're coming to you for the Hols" uninvited. What are your options?

  • Tell him to get to ***
  • Come clean, say that the house is a state
  • Spend thousands and thousands on a new kitchen

Tough choice

It is a very strange advert, not really selling it to vegans in my opinion. If I were vegan I'd be left with the worrying thought it might not actually be vegan after all.

If it tastes of anything then it probably isn't.

That BoS ad with Susan Calman.

We Scots...…...……...are something else. Yep, that pretty much sums up this advert, only not the way she intended it, doing my head in.

I find veganism / vegetarianism odd, but if that lifestyle makes people happy then good for them.

What I don't understand, is how their world seemingly ends if their food comes into contact with cooking oil or a chopping board that may also have come in to contact with meat. Does that really make a difference to you being a vegan or not? 

A lot of noise is made over restaurant chains not doing enough for vegans yet, when they try, they get grief from the same people about how they have inexplicably not redesigned their entire kitchen to satisfy them.

As with my previous point, if you were as concerned about animal welfare as you proclaim, you would surely avoid such establishments out of principle anyway.

Just saw this for the first time. Genuinely considering changing banks.

Just seen one for Febrize which could be taking the title of this thread literally. They claim that every time you flush your toilet, it flings odours onto your soft surfaces, which are released back into the air so you smell them later.

So put the fucking toilet lid down!
