Smother you

In my local supermarket last week, past the aisles called 'CEREALS' and 'TINNED FOOD', I came across an aisle called 'SMOTHER YOU'. My blood ran cold at this incredibly sinister sign.

It was only on second inspection that I realised the sign actually said 'SMOOTHER YOU' - the supermarket had some kind of aftershave promotion going on.

Then at the weekend I was in the same supermarket and I misread the same sign in the same way - and scared myself again. It's strange how the brain works...

JD I will tonight be putting up similar signs at home just to see you get a little scared... I guess I am just pure evil.

Um I'm not sure it would have scared me, I think i'd have just walk on down the ailse expecting to find numerous (or several) types of chocolate and sweet sauces. I think it's about time Sainsburys started to cater for the kinky shopper.

"Amazing how the brain works"? No, just surprising that you clearly have the memory of a goldfish!

Talking of which, I was in the supermarket yesterday when I saw this sign saying 'SMOTHER YOU', but when I looked again... oh, have I told you this already?!
