Washing Up Weekend – what fun!

I am still waiting for a new dishwasher after my last one decided to pack it in after a decade of mind-numbing washing up duties. Who can blame it? Washing up, regardless of what I said yesterday, can be exceedingly tedious.

It may have a negative effect of people’s personalities too.

I am not sure if it is the bubbles or some secret ingredient in Fairy Liquid washing up liquid but after doing some intense research into advertisements for the said product, I have been shaken by the extreme psychological damage that it can produce on both adults and young children.

Apparently quite normal women turn into simpering morons after being exposed to this liquid on a daily basis and, even worse, children become extra annoying, cloying and, well yes, just plain stupid too.

Be warned – whatever you do, keep away from this kitchen hazard, it can seriously effect your sanity.

Here are some of those adverts from the 1960s and 70s – it may be a British phenomenon but watch carefully, these people are very very disturbed and, another warning, they talk funny too. I hope I survive until the new dishwasher comes.

Etta James (1938-2012)

After all that simper, I just had to end with something a whole lot tougher – what better than marking the sad passing on Friday of the great Blues singer Etta James, now there was a real woman, singing “I Just Wanna Make Love To You” – I hope all those little washing up ad kids get to hear it.
