Anyone who doesn't get to see British TV will probably be confused by this post

So there's an advert that I've seen on TV quite a bit over the last few weeks. It's for some Veet hair removal stuff. Now, I go all feminist usually when it comes to removal of bodily hair, but this advert cracks me up.

The woman the ad is focussing on says towards the end 'my legs feel Veet smooth'. Well, there's a geordie word 'reet', which technically means 'right', but is used in many expressions for emphasis. So the ad may say 'Veet smooth', but I hear 'reet smooth', and I giggle to myself.

(I've got a lot on at the mo, so I haven't got much time to post. Might be quiet for the next couple of weeks, but I'll be back around more soon.)
