World Cup tat-you either love it or hate it,but for a few short weeks people all across England can actually get away with being English in their own Country and not be arrested by the Scottish Raj for their trouble.
The overload of England stuff is an amusing sight for those of us who fight to keep it's image alive 365 days a year,and not just for sporting events.
Hypocrisy and money do go hand in hand though and examples of this abound right now,I have already posted with regards to ASDAS World Cup schizophrenia HERE,but on reading WENAPs comments about the axis of evil ie-TESCO AND SAINSBURYS,I decided to revisit my previous post to make my point,as the kids say "yo yo big up" my point with pictorial proof of the strange and often mysterious world of the marketing persons.
ASDA,like many retailers are selling World Cup clothing,but only in their English stores ,incase their Scottish employees all end up in counseling,due to them crying all the time about Scotland not being in the World Cup.
The ASDA footy clothing range can be found HERE,but within it's pages,like Bananaman,"an amazing transformation occurs",but unlike Eric becoming Bananaman,ASDA have somehow got Scotland,Wales and Republic of Ireland,in to the World Cup by the back door.
"HOW DID THEY DO IT"
Excellent question, and the answer is- CLOTHING
ASDA stock Scotland,Wales and Republic of Ireland World Cup clothing-WHY ?
Who can say as they didn't qualify,but it's there, and I can show you now.
and if that wasn't enough you get a second go below.
