My job went to India...

...and all I got was this lousy mug

That India mug artwork in fullCash'n'Carrion Things are bad. Just one month ago you were dispensing invaluable advice on car insurance from a callcentre in Basingstoke; now you're reading the "Situations Vacant" section of the local paper while a college-educated resident of Bangalore does your old job for a tenner a month.

Still, look on the bright side, you could always make yourself a nice cup of tea - albeit with "500 for a pound" teabags from the nearest Quidstretcher - if only you had the right receptacle for the job.

Well, salvation is at hand in the form of the new Cash'n'Carrion Bolly Mug - a top-quality ceramic container bearing the slogan "My job went to India and all I got was this lousy mug".

This class offering is suitable for both left and right-handed offshoring casualties, since the delicious artwork shown here is printed on both sides of the mug. Naturally, the Register url is printed on there as well for good measure. The Bolly Mug can be yours for just £9.35 (£10.99 inc VAT) - hardly enough to dent your Income Support cheque. There you go, you feel better already, don't you?

And if that's not enough to raise your spirits, remember that we still have the matching limited-edition t-shirt to perfectly round off the set. ®

Important notice

The Bolly mug is made entirely in East Timor by orphaned children. Our decision to outsource the manufacture of our mugs was based solely on bringing you, our beloved customers, the maximum possible value for money. The closure of our Liverpool muggery is regrettable, but we believe that the 2000 staff laid off fully understand the economic realities of the modern global economy.
