"Do You Want A Bag On Your Head?"

Carrying on from my self deprecating tale of me buying a digital camera in Argos yesterday.  Or how to be a plonker in one easy lesson. 

My mental jukebox and video recorder remembered a Not The Nine O'clock News sketch from the 1980s.  It's a bit dated in terms of it being a Hi Fi shop and Somewhere like Curry's or Harvey Norman would be more current.  But it still makes me laugh.  Mel Smith was brilliant and much missed.  Enjoy.

  3. That's not the kind of service I expect when visiting an electrical appliances shop. Those two fellows behind the counter behaved appallingly,. Don't they realise that customers pay their wages?

  4. I agree YP. Do you know Curry's don't sell curries and Selfridges don't sell fridges.

    3. I went to the chemists for a potty YP. They said: "Have you tried Boots?". I said: "They are no good it runs through the lace holes".

  5. True JayCee. They use to sell Pickwick records and you would buy an ABBA album with a picture of the band on the record sleeve and you woul put in on the radiogram and some Wolverhampton cover band would be playing and singing. Happy days.

  7. I beg to differ about Boots selling boots as I bought (two years running) my toddler daughter some lovely warm fur lined boots from their baby/toddler department.

  8. No it's a lot before your time Tigger. It must be confusing for you when a computer is connected to a mouse?
