Warning: This post was published more than 11 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
When it’s a Mandle Candle, apparently.
This is one of the most hilariously awful products I’ve seen in ages. Not only is it truly hideous, the advert and website are terrible. Witness the sheer pleasure on the woman’s face at the beginning of the TV ad (on the site, or – amazingly – national TV), and note that it can “delight and entertain you for hours” (you’d have to be pretty damn bored) or “set the tone of an evening” (if you’re going for the cheap look).
Notice too that the headline 0n the site announces it’s “perfect for conversations”…
“I really think we need to talk”
“Okay, let’s light the Mandle Candle”
I haven’t seen anything so laugh-out-loud funny in a very long time.
