At first I assumed that you had miss spelt Air-Cork or something similar, I am just naive sometimes.

You still got 50% discount on a nice big black one, not many have such luck.

Yes, that's become clear. And that makes you a 'single-issue poster', which we don't allow here, as well as being irrelevant to the forum. Please take note.
Does that include you always being mean to me? and does it mean that you are planning to ban Meloncolie?

You like speed don't you? before i could even get ready this morning this kettle had finished boiling, it was almost like it was premature. which is great for a kettle.

and whoever voted

Thank you, I think you are right, but I just couldn't vote for it when there was a chicken option , my poll haters though chose hate over compassion

Cockatoo, Cockatiel, Cockaninny, Cockfosters, Cock a Leekie Soup, Cock a doodle do, Cockroach, Cock Robin: "Who killed Cock Robin?" "I," said the Sparrow,
"With my bow and arrow, I killed Cock Robin."
"Who saw him die?" "I," said the Fly,
"With my little eye, I saw him die."
"Who caught his blood?" "I," said the Fish,
"With my little dish, I caught his blood."
"Who'll make the shroud?" "I," said the Beetle,
"With my thread and needle, I'll make the shroud."
"Who'll dig his grave?" "I," said the Owl,
"With my pick and shovel, I'll dig his grave."
"Who'll be the parson?" "I," said the Rook,
"With my little book, I'll be the parson."
"Who'll be the clerk?" "I," said the Lark,
"If it's not in the dark, I'll be the clerk."
"Who'll carry the link?" "I," said the Linnet,
"I'll fetch it in a minute, I'll carry the link."
"Who'll be chief mourner?" "I," said the Dove,
"I mourn for my love, I'll be chief mourner."

"Who'll toll the bell?" "I," said the bull,
"Because I can pull, I'll toll the bell."
All the birds of the air fell a-sighing and a-sobbing,
When they heard the bell toll for poor Cock Robin.

This is about a cordless Kettle right?
yes it is, just in case anyone is interested in this great kettle, if you are a lefty and the handle is on the left, the cock logo is at the back so the kids don't see it and snicker.

Re: Marketing Gaff or Totally On Purpose

I thought its important to add because this is important in a kettle, while the kettle is heating up its not at all noisy, you can hardly tell its reaching its peak boiling point.

its like a businesslike hum.

ok i'm done now

I am running out of innuendo

Today the art of innuendos is no longer practised, Jag. It's wham-bang-out with it.
