Just why?



“Commemorative tea towels are so 1981,” said GDHA, distributor for GE appliances in the UK, as it unveiled “the ultimate” in Royal Wedding memorabilia – a 5’9” side-by-side fridge freezer emblazoned with one of the official engagement photographs of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Call me old fashioned but I think I'd stick to the mugs and teatowels!

Just why would anyone buy that?? If I wanted a huge fridge with a huge photo on it - it would be my boys not those two.

No! Just No! Mind you - they could have started a trend - anyone for a George Clooney fridge?

Deanna said...

Egads! Why would I want a fridge with their photo on it? I'd rather have one with Camilla's face...bwah ha ha ha!!

Yes, tea towels and mugs seem much more proper. And what's with the ugly coin they made of Kate? She looks horrible!!!

Deanna :D

Taz said...

Lydia + CQ - I'm thinking you'd be better with their faces on something that has a fast spin no? LMAO

Deanna - I know it's awful, poor Kate.

Vicki - I think I should have a mirror on mine then maybe I'd stop opening it so much :)

Poppy! No!!!!

Oh my god, that is positively atrocious. I wonder if the fridge comes with a one or two year guarantee? Lets hope their union lasts longer than the fridge LOL! X
