Thinking ahead...

Next Fun Monday's about...
Brand names which make life easy...Hm...that's some ask...

Here across the Pond we're not as into brand names as other parts of the World.

To quote Douglas Adams "I may have to think for a while"...

Spoof brands thanks to 'Auntie' which is a term of endearment for the 'good, old' 'Beeb' aka BBC.

Brand names make life more difficult when they insist upon re-branding, usually thanks in no small part to our neighbours in Europe.


'Marathon' was a chocolate bar confection, re-branded to become 'Snickers'. Ludicrous to folk here as 'snicker' means a half-smothered laugh, aka silent laughter. 'I'd like a silent laughter chocolate bar'...
