function is pretty cool on this particular model... :-)
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, …
All of a sudden the Asus Eee lady bores me - from now on The Register should find a way to have this model in as many stories as possible.
E.g. "eBay bans negative feedback from sellers" could be illustrated with this image because, of course, people sell lingerie on eBay. Stories about Apple could be illustrated with this image because women buy laptops. Stories about the National Programme for NHS IT could be illustrated with this image, because she looks a bit like a nurse.
A story about taser guns, or electrical weapons, would benefit from this image because, in my neck of the woods, we call M&S "Marks & Sparks". Royal stories = Spencer = Marks & Spencer. And so forth. That covers most of the bases. Paris Hilton = woman = Marks & Spencers lady. You're creative people - create! And enable!
In related news Marks and Spencer today announced it's new Soylent Green food range. Spokesman Louis Hill said that the Soylent Green brand guarantees a more sustainable approach to food production, meeting the needs of the modern consumer.
"Just as our latest home furnishing ranges have shown we are at the cutting edge of modern furniture design, we feel Soylent Green shows we are also at the cutting edge of the Green movement", he said.
Recent controversies over the sourcing of chickens have led to lower sales, with consumer groups calling for a greener approach to food production. "Our logo has been green coloured for years", Mr. Hill added.
...there's Soylent Red and Soylent Yellow. Also, if you have the lolly, some apartments come with "furniture" as depicted in the advertisement above !!
Note: Mr. Harry Harrison will be demanding royalties for the use of his novella, "Make room, make room" and the concepts therein !!
PH as part of the furnishing !!
