    Is it just me or does the figure in the yellow jersey and black shorts look like a cyclist to anyone else?

    Might be because he is a cyclist!

    He's got a bike in one of those adverts.

    I also think WTF is going on, walker. Is it me, or have the Madmen gone completely into a parallel universe? :biggrin::blush:

    I like them, in a nutty kinda way. Better than the rubbish about the latest 375 blade Gillette razor or elecric room fragrancers.

    Although, I don't see the point of 'filtered' milk - I've never noticed a problem with bits of straw or anything in my normal milk. If it has lumps, it's usually my fault for keeping it too long. And if it's pasturised, that kills any bugs...

    It lasts for ages. Compare the sell-by dates next time your shopping - it might work out cheaper (assuming you dont go through much milk).

    homogenising milk is bad enough let alone filtering to make it more pure HTF can u make something more pure than milk straight from a cow!!! marketing idiots

    I'll have a look, cheers - although I buy my milk two pints at a time and get through it before it goes off (a few days) - not sure about 4 pints...

    I remember when I was living in the US there was a big brouhaha about minute bits of udder etc. being found in fresh milk because the mechanical milking process can be a bit violent sometimes. I'm sure they started advertising "filtered" milk there as a result. Never saw the point myself though.

    Sainsbury's are doing it BogOf at the moment, I think it does taste slightly crisper, and it does last longer, if that makes any sense?

    i get 9 days on my milk as its local and gets 'bottled' locally so doesnt spend days travelling back and forth, most milk has travelled at approx 500 miles before it gets to 'your door' especially the wiseman milk.
