    Mine smell like a compost heap Ernie
    You don’t get more organic than that!

    I thought he meant orgasmic & auto-collect had got the better of him.

    Never gets me.

    I wondered if organic underwear was like Sainsbury's Taste The Difference range of edible knickers or summat.

    Sustainable and Fairtrade.


    Is edible underwear still a thing?

    Always seemed wasteful to me.


    I mean, what did one put on after the event in order to get home?

    Recipe for a chill or worse up your skirt in my opinion.

    Made using cotton which hasn’t been genetically modified and was grown without the use of fertilisers or pesticides.

    Basically, they’re like any other pants, but more expensive.

    If you think organic underwear is a bit odd I saw an advert for vegan mattresses the other day. I mean, what? :huh:

    The glue used in normal mattresses, like most glue, is animal based.

    Those of a certain age will remember it was Norman Scott who said that he ‘cried and bit the pillow’ when having a liaison with Jeremy Thorpe. Bernard Manning summed it up best when he said it was a good job it wasn’t Cyril Smith giving him one or he’d have swallowed the ****ing mattress

    Yes, I was going to mention biting pillows as well but thought it might be deleted for upsetting any transgender, non-binary, transitioning or LGBT types.

    Those of that age will remember this as well. A not wholly inaccurate summing up of the trial.<laugh>

    Boohoo Group has bought Debenhams' brand and website for £55m, but not the stores, which will now all be closed.

    How many stores do they have? Are they still a big player?

    ASOS are in exclusive talks to buy Top Shop/Top Man/Miss Selfridge, which will see all their stores closed as well.

    Looks like all 400-odd stores will go, with some 13,000 jobs lost.
