Do Admen have brains?

A thought crossed my mind this morning, during breakfast, (yes I do have  A. A mind, B. Breakfast,)
An advert for "101 Housework Songs"  (or similar title) is currently available for £14.97 
Great stuff.... some nice Rock n Roll on there....... BUT
They are advertising it as a "GIFT FOR MOTHER`S DAY".......  ! ! !  (to make housework more enjoyable)
Can you imagine the scene...... Kids jump on mum`s bed and present her with the CD, saying  "C`mon mum, get up, put this on the cd player and get that houseworkd done"
(like giving a new set of saucepans for a birthday present, I think )....... !

Yes, or a new pinny - unlikely to be popular!
Funny you don't see lawnmower adverts for fathers day.

I've seen flowery toolkits - presumably Pierre will add an image for me shortly, in the meantime, here are some coloured ones.

Oh yeah, if you are at work - don't do a Google Image Search for "Tools for Ladies"

As someone who bought his wife a light weight battery powered drill and attachments for Christmas  Embarrassed
To be fair this was something she wanted to help hang her paintings in exhibitions - I still do the DIY at home

My kids picked a new pinny last year for their 'Yummy Mummy' and she liked it, admittedly there were some other gifts to go with it..

No she didn't, she simply 'banked' that one.
You'll hear about it someday, when you've long forgotten about it and let your guard down.
Most probably during a 'discussion' following her catching you 'noticing' what another woman was wearing or somesuch.

Re: Do Admen have brains?

Now here's a debate for you.  Which would get you into more trouble?  The Vacuum cleaner, or the Bathroom scale just down from that!

Personally, probably the bathroom scales. At least with the vacuum cleaner "the other one was broken" you know that because you have vacuumed recently  Wink. The scales say, I think you're getting fat, fatty Mcfattyson

Re: Do Admen have brains?

I don't suppose tell her that the bathroom scale are broken, which is why you got her new ones would help either.  How ever you put it, what will be heard is you where to heavey for the old ones and you broke them, so I got you these industrial strength ones!  Crazy

Re: Do Admen have brains?

Well, this is along the same lines, but deviating a touch Smiley
I went into our local PC World at lunchtime, and they had an ADSL filter priced at £14.99.
Even better, it had an 'amazing value' tag on it.
What a bargain Grin
