Basket case

The label attached to a wicker basket, made in China, for a Japanese company, bought in the Bangkok equivalent of a pound shop:

"Your day is filled with happiness and love. It is made of natural material so it may have fungus or insects."

here in the PNW happiness and love go hand in hand with fungus and insects. it's the climate.

Somehow I can't imagine that mix of inspirational message and honesty catching on in Poundland or Orfords.

It's the same the world over, FN. Maybe we just need a few more lethal pesticides.

Speak for yourself, Jun. I'm entirely unnatural.

Think of it as an organic Andrew Brownsword card, Llewtrah. But with no bears.

Indeed, Annie. But don't encourage him, he'll just want to hump your legs.
