Ebuyer offers a juicy alternative

To enjoy this search result in full, you'll have to enter "VGN-FS315S" and then try in "PC's/Displays" [sic].

One question therefore remains: vagina's what exactly? I think we should be told. ®

Update

This just in (14:52 GMT) from Chris Haynes:

Looks like eBuyer got wind of your story, and removed the offending suggestion.

They also tidied up their spelling of PCs.

Bless...

Bless indeed. Another blow struck for common decency and decent punctuation.

Bootnote
