Is it just me, or does looking at them make you think that a squid sex toy or condom could be amusing ;-)

@onetrackmind,

With a strap line of "spread the love" and an obiously phalic shaped handle, these are clearly aimed at a certain culinary market place...

Many many years ago when I was just a young lad I had occasion to go out with a young lady who's father was a senior marketing executive. I made an off the cuff remark about the difference in shape betwen ladies and gents shampoo bottles, and how the former where to large to fit into a bathroom cupboard and therefore not "ergonomic". He replied that if I looked at it slightly differently I would notice that all the mens and family bottles where fairly regular in shape or just streamlined, where as the majority of the ones specificaly aimed at women tended to have a bulge at the top and a slender round shape and an enlargend base, on seeing the blank look on my (then) innocent young face he simply said "subliminal sex sells" to which he added "they are deliberatly made to look like a phalus as this has been found to increase market share"...

@Bruce,

Speaking of "spreading the love" you have not posted to your blog about your comments to InfoSecurity and the "Value of Bruce",

Oh and did you get the "supreme deity" job title from BT (aka "the big seven incher")?

Hi your site came up as a search result for known terrists groups just looking for what information I might be able to find out there not that I believe you would be capable of publishing all such organizations for lack of information I suppose, but the search was pretty vague can you tell me what's up with that.
