M&S flogs lingerie model with 'durable hardwood feet'

'Frame exceeds the British Standards set for heavy domestic use'

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

NSFW We know how much you lot enjoy a good e-commerce website gaffe, so we're obliged to the three readers* who forwarded us this nice example from Marks and Spencer:

M&S website showing lingerie model described as living room furniture

Well, you can't argue with that. As you can see, the lovely Tribeca boasts "modern curves, soft-look styling and durable hardwood feet" which make her suitable for any "contemporary living room".

Scrolling down a bit, we also find her "cushions" are lovingly crafted from "shape-retaining foam" and that her frame "exceeds the British Standards set for heavy domestic use". Sounds promising, and if you do fancy giving Tribeca some heavy domestic use, rest assured that "detailed care instructions are included". ®

*Thanks indeed, but now stop sniggering and get back to work, the lot of you.
