    I’ve just found this on my shower gel.
    100% nature inspired fragrance

    What does that mean? Are we supposed to believe it is 100% natural? It is just weasel words.

    Any other examples of this sort of meaningless rubbish.
     
  2. Aircraft grade aluminium.
    Normally that means it is common garden grade 6082T6, the most commonly used in the uk, and one that is provided if you just ask for aluminium.

    Cool as a mountain stream - how could any ciggie be described like this?

    Never smoked, but always remember the advert.

    Maybe 'Singularly Sh*ite' would have been more accurate?

    To be honest, there is quite a lot of stuff in nature that doesn't smell too pleasant and that you really wouldn't want in your shower gel.

    Mind you, the other day I was tempted to an oven roasted chicken for lunch.
    Although I'm not sure what other roasting methods are available..?

    I've got some socks with BODYGLOVE written on the toes. It baffles me every time I pull one on... it's only a trainer liner type sock, so not really a 'body' glove in any way, shape or form. 'FOOTGLOVE' would be more accurate... or even 'SOCK' :blush:
