Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Those readers old enough to remember UK TV show That's Life - a strange melange of consumer rights investigations and "hilarious" off-the-wall items fronted by an enormous set of teeth operated by someone called Esther Rantzen - will doubtless recall the programme's penchant for "comedy vegetables" shaped in suggestive forms to the delight of the sniggering audience.

Comedy porn citrus fruitIt's fair to say that most of these genital simulacra don't merit a second glance. Occasionally, though, Mother Nature in her infinite wisdom decides to cheer us all up with something truly wonderful.

We don't think we need to make any further comment, but will leave the last word to to seller jobas who responded to the query "How juicy can the flangello get?" with the magnificent: "The flangello will provide more juice when hot." ®
