Debenham techies hit on jugs?

Underware...

Techies, as we all know already, do have a sense of humour, particularly when it comes to slipping the odd one past their technically challenged management. Take, for example, this interesting little feature of the search function at UK store chainDebenham's site.

Go to Debenhams, leave it set to "all departments" and search for jugs. For some bizarre reason the first six hits are for Wonderbra products. For some even more bizarre reason the next two hits are for a "Wallis grey tweed knit long cardigan," which may tell us something about what it is Debenhams techies get off on. Only after this do you get on to items that could be termed non-colloquial hits on jugs.

Check it while you can - we fear it'll disappear fairly promptly. Thanks to Rupert for this tip, which he claims was "noticed by a friend of mine." Right, Rupert... Thanks also to the dozens of readers who've subsequently pointed out that this Debenhams feature was documented recently by NTK. Hell, we already sell their t-shirts - are we supposed to read them as well? ®
