Sea Fishing Ireland tweetz:

Every piece of plastic made still exists. Quix detergent. Made in Ireland priced 5d in pre-decimalisation (1971) money. Recovered recently from our seas.

        Apologies, but those Kylie-esque shorts of a Friday morning confused my ladybrain.

          I was asking for it, really. Giz a cheeky slap there while you’re at it so ;)

            Willy sweat, I’d say.
            Have I just coined a phrase or is that a thing?

    Was sitting at a bar in Dublin recently and out of nowhere the girl behind the bar sez, look, see our new straws they’re made of bamboo because of the seahorses and stuff

    Always a poor imitation of Fairy Liquid. It had an awful lemon-via-oil-refinery smell.

        Rubbish! These comparison tests are always a con job. Twenty years ago Walkers tried to make out that more Irish people the taste of their cheese and onion crisps to “the leading brand”. I had been canvassed outside a Crazy Prices to do the taste test – the cheating sods had let the Tayto go nice and stale.

      ah yeah, but you could recycle fairy bottles to use as toy rockets and a host of blue peter-related high jinx. a quix bottle went straight into the canal by the looks of things.

    You’re slipping Bodger.

    Surely “Living in the Plastic Age” or “Down Quixote”

    Use Fairy meself,

    Quixotic tilting at windmills if you think people will stop using plastic unless there is legislation. Why can’t the plastic bag tax approach be applied to plastic coffee cups, etc?
