When is a fish not a fish?

When it's my new toothbrush holder!

Another of my classically bizarre buys, how could I resist it at only £1. It's a mug but with the narrow top totally impractical to drink out of so it must have been part of a novelty gift set at some point me thinks.
Now of course the small people's toothbrush holders look very boring so I'll have to find something equally nuts for them.

How peculiar...I am not sure I would like to drink my brew out of that mouth! Brill idea of toothbrush holder though.

That is brilliant - definatly should have tooth brushes in! I love wierdness like that, makes me wonder who desighed it, because they must have thought it was a good idea, then who bought it? was it a gift etc...
I picked up a cats bottom with a star shaped towel holder butt hole the other day - too funny, must stick a photo on my blog!

That is one crazy toothbrush holder!!
I spotted your cow print oilcloth, its fab! in answer to your question, my red polka dot oilcloth was from our local market and the meter square piece cost me a teensy £4, if you can get hold of any I'd happily get you some and send it on, just mail me your measurements.

Oh gooo on drink your tea from it .... it will be like snogging a cod!

not something I have actually done.... mind you that lad back in the 90's was a really sloppy kisser... perhaps he was in fact a cod! arrgh!
