Went up town today (big surprise). I find that strange thoughts come to me as I wander round the shops.
We bought some shampoo for the guinea pigs. They have long hair (don't ask) and we have to keep it shiny clean. I was wondering if it had been tested on animals.
Then I went past the Early Learning Centre, where you can now buy a "Castle of Doom" for your tiny tots to play with. Only seventy quid. What kind message does this send to our newest citizens?
Scene : Christmas Morn
(FX : Sound of frantic unwrapping)
Child : "Oh daddy, it is just what I've always wanted. A dank place of total despair where all who enter can suffer torture and and a lingering death."
Father: "Well, son, I just hope you'll play nicely with it."
