Need a new duster? Avoid Woolies

Spring cleaning filth and fury shakes Middle England

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

NSFW If you're in the market for a new duster to do a bit of light spring cleaning we'd advise you to nip out to your nearest hardware shop rather than pop down to the UK ecommerce tentacle of retail monolith Woolworths, where a search query for this most innocent of household items returns a nasty shock for innocent inhabitants of Middle England:

Woolworths search result for duster returns 2001 album named after female reproductive organs

By the Lord Harry and Saint George. Mercifully, Woolies doesn't feature the cover or track listing of this 2001 album, but we still reckon there'll be a few duster-hunters on tablets from the doctor after accidental exposure to beaver.

As ever, we have made our dossier available to the relevant authorities. ®
