Grandma finds hilarious X-rated detail on Myer bagA Sydney woman was searching for handbags on Myer’s website when she came across an unexpected design that left her “shocked”.Shireen KhalilAn Aussie woman was shopping on Myer’s website when she came across an unexpected find. The Sydney grandmother was searching for handbags when she discovered the store’s X-rated $19.95 Wild Fur You Australiana Tote Bag. She eagerly clicked on the native-themed print, however upon closer inspection, she realised the bag wasn’t as innocent as she first thought. The print showed native Aussie animals, from kangaroos, koalas, dingoes and emus, engaging in sexual activity.In one scene, two echidnas appeared to be watching their friends mate, while another showed a Tasmanian devil biting its partner’s shoulder. “I am all for a cheeky joke, but I draw the line at this,” the grandmother told 7News. “Shocking!”It appears the tote bag is “no longer available” on Myer’s website. They have a clutch version with the same controversial design for $10, however it too appears to be just as popular with an “out of stock” message on the product. “Rock this daring clutch illustrated by Lilly Perrott and cause a scene,” the description reads.While it may be a little too risque for some, others love it, inundating Myer’s reviews section of the bags with a mostly 5-star ratings.It also comes in a clutch, but it too is ‘out of stock’.“Great gift, you may even snag one for yourself,” one person wrote, adding that the bag is of “good quality”, “large and uniquely Australian”. Another said the purse has a “durable quality to the zipper”. “The print is certainly hilarious and went famously well when given to a friend who likes telling green jokes,” the person continued. “Unexpectedly raunchy but completely hilarious! Bought this to post to a friend in the US and definitely got more than I bargained for!” a third person added.Australian company La La Land is behind the cheeky design, with a range of other bags in the ‘Wild Fur You’ print.The creators behind the design are Aussie brand La La Land, which sells a range of items including bags, reusable mugs and tea towels in the “Wild Fur You” print. “A best-selling cheeky Australian themed illustration by our talented in-house artist at La La Land, Lilly Perrott,” La La Land’s website reads. “A perfect adult gift to stand against the ordinary.”If you’re keen to get your hands on the now sold-out tote and clutch items on the Myer website, the original makers still have plenty options available via its own site.Source:News.com28.10.2020

We then drove through Langres, where we had no time to stop, and on to Bourg, my Tank Brigade Headquarters in 1918. The first man I saw in the street was standing on the same manure pile whereon I am sure he had perched in 1918. I asked if he had been there during the last war, to which he replied, “Oh, yes, General Patton, and you were here then as a Colonel.” He then formed a triumphal procession of all the village armed with pitchforks, scythes, and rakes, and we proceeded to rediscover my old haunts, including my office, and my billet in the chateau of Madame de Vaux.The grave of that national hero, “Abandoned Rear,” was still maintained by the natives. It originated in this manner. In 1917, the mayor, who lived in the “new house” at Bourg, bearing the date 1700, came to me, weeping copiously, to say that we had failed to tell him of the death of one of our soldiers. Being unaware of this sad fact, and not liking to admit it to a stranger, I stalled until I found out that no one was dead. However, he insisted that we visit the “grave,” so we went together and found a newly closed latrine pit with the earth properly banked and a stick at one end to which was affixed crosswise a sign saying, “Abandoned Rear.” This the French had taken for a cross. I never told them the truth.
