Troubles Down Below

I demand to know why the women in Cannistan adverts appear so damn smug they've got thrush. Perhaps it is the green silk scarf they're always sporting - obviously a tag for everyone to know that their drip-tray is currently moldier than two-month old bread. But there they dance around sunny shopping centers, gladly taking their pills before going off to fabulous lunches with friends.

My other demand on this subject is that there should be some gritty realism to these things. Like a tagline that says, 'Dragging yourself across the floor like an itchy dog? Try Cannistan!'

And that, ladies and gentleman, is why I'll never work for Saachi and Saachi.
