I think I'd prefer it in silver. Do you also have a SMEG fridge?

I have to say I love it, however I woke up this morning and thought it was a bit big for me


I mean how hard is it to make a small, no plastic inside, double walled, quiet, 360degree for lefties, cordless, quality, affordable kettle without the word 'cock' on it?
well very hard, i had to compromise and the compromise was I had to give up my dreams of a small one and get a big one instead. I do still like it a lot though.

Re: Marketing Gaff or Totally On Purpose

You realise that "cock" is pretty much an everyday word in English that happens to have "penis" as one of it's slang terms, right?

Anyway I give you a perfectly good friday thread and instead of congratulating me and giving me some green ones all you do is complain.

oh for goodness sake, its a.l.w.a.y.s about the chickens These polls are just vehicles to promote chicken welfare in the US and at the same to have a little bit of a laugh with human stereotypes / nature.

by the way i did get some, green ones that is, so thats why it crossed my mind that the complaining reaction is kind of funny in contrast to making someone else have a chuckle.

If I were a green rep whore id have as many as you right ? take a look at yours and mine.

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.

Re: Marketing Gaff or Totally On Purpose

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 carry the coffin?" "I," said the Kite,
"If it's not through the night, I'll carry the coffin."
"Who'll bear the pall? "We," said the Wren,
"Both the cock and the hen, we'll bear the pall."
"Who'll sing a psalm?" "I," said the Thrush,
"As she sat on a bush, I'll sing a psalm."
"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?
