    In marketing one of the first things you try to do when naming a product is determine origins in other countries. I think they knew the connection and wanting to have a laugh.

    Considering the subject material - surely it has to be 'a flash of tits'!

    Your friendly, neighbourhood Moderator saw this in the Latest Threads list and got all indignant, thinking that the proletariat had started their revolt and that it needed to be quashed without compunction. Can't be havin' that sort of nonsense on here, y'know!

    But then, like all good moral guardians who have a great capacity to display double standards, I was very disappointed when I saw the actual image in question!!

    Someone's got to be having a laugh.

    Donald!!!!


    It must have something to do with Ian Duncan Smith as he is a fairly enormous and vociferous example of said.

    That's all am saying!

    I'd be curious to know how exactly it's pronounced: tit (as in the obvious) or perhaps tight.
    Still, makes a great gift idea.

    Since there are no Great Tits in the U.S. (well, I'm sure there are but that's probably off topic), I'll see if I can instead photograph a titmouse (tufted, of course) and of course, label it salaciously.

    I don't know what the fuss here is all about. Having a packet of whatever it is named after a species of bird is not all that remarkable.

    Or, as the Very Old Joke has it:

    Tits like coconuts
    .
    .
    .

    .
    and sparrows like breadcrumbs.

    For devotees of Only Fools and Horses - they've got to be a product from Trotters Independent Traders.

    For those in other countries who may not get the reference - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Only_Fools_and_Horses and check http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63rcdLeXiU8
