“In an EngLiSH CoUNTry GaRDen”

So what’s the rest of the code or joke? IELSHCUNTGRD? Or are the rest of the letters a red herring to make it sound like the obvious joke was an accident? One thing is for sure: this will not be well received in Scunthorpe.

Why have randomly capitalized letters in the first place?


#4

I will NOT have you speaking ill of the Welsh cuntgrounds.


#5

Was this posted just for the cunning stunt joke?


#6

Can yoU NoT suggest that word, please?


#7

I wonder if the designer was just seeing if he could get away with it and did?
Also am I the only who immediately thought Rosebud Frozen Peas?


#8

Oh noes.
The bad words.

There’s a TV commercial in the USA that takes place in a grocery store. At the end someone is standing in front of the “Eggs” sign in such a way that it blatantly appears as “Fags”. Apparently, no one has complained as the commercial is still running after at least a year.

I still prefer the new flesh.

I thought they were playing off the song ‘In an English Country Garden’ (well, I think it’s called that anyway) and trying to emphasise the cadence of the tune. I found myself sorta singing that in my head when I read it, though with the, ah, alternative lyrics that I learned in primary school…


#17

God forbid these delicate souls should ever see Hamlet, which contains almost exactly the same pun.


#18

Me too! Lets watch it. I’ll bring the popcorn and we can order out for fish soup and make guns out of the bones!


#19

Uh oh…it looks like there’s something in the country garden.

But letters are emphasized, not syllables. How would that match the meter?
