Mum Notices Something Really Weird About These Valentine's Mugs

Mum Notices Something Really Weird About These Valentine's Mugs

They must think we're mugs!

Valentine's Day is coming. Brace yourselves. Soon, the Internet will be awash with #spoiled #luckygirl and #lovehim hashtags. It's like a virus.

The only way to avoid it all is to log off all social media from February 13 until February 15.

Alternatively, go to the pub. That's where all the best people will be on Valentine's Day, promise. Shut up, it's not sad.

ANYWAY. If you're spending this Valentine's single (I feel you), you can look forward to never receiving such shitty gifts as these mugs.

Just look at them... urgh.


Hold the phone.

Is that...? Do they have...? Is that supposed to be an arm? Why's it there? Wait... what's going on?!

Kitty O'Rourke noticed the... urm... 'arms' looked more like slightly curved boners and decided to call Sainsbury's out on it. In a funny way, of course...

"Hi, Just a little feedback on the 'hugging mugs' they don't look quite like they are hugging but rather excited to see each other... Had to swerve awkward questions from a 2 year old... maybe not the best design!"

The Mirror spoke to Katie who said: "We were just browsing the Valentine's bit when I noticed them with my husband and burst out laughing at how poorly (or brilliantly) designed they were.

"My son even asked why the bears have willies and I didn't know how to answer. I told him it was a tail.

"We found the whole thing hilarious and didn't purchase them but after all the attention the photo got I feel like perhaps we should!!"

Supermarket spokesperson, Andy, replied: "What ever do you mean Kitty? Of course they are excited to see each other, hence why they are #Hugging"

Yeah alright, Andy. Maybe that's what your parents told you they were doing that time you couldn't sleep and wandered into their room at 1am but I can tell you right now - they lied.

It's not just awkward bear boners that people are snapping pictures of in supermarkets... remember this story?

Domino's Worker Caught Buying Cheap Wedges From Asda

Twitter user Sinead Sarah uploaded the following image with the caption: 'Thank you @dominos - next time I spend £3.99 on a tiny portion of potato wedges I'll remember there from Asda!! [sic]'

The bags of wedges are just £1 each, and you only get about 20 wedges so the mark up is well over 250%. Damn, Dominos!

The Tweet's nearly on 20k likes already and people just can't handle the betrayal.

A spokeswoman for Domino's Pizza told The Sun: "With a big sporting weekend, very occasionally our stores are in an unfortunate position where some products may run out.

"We do not advocate this as a solution and are investigating. We have rigorous food standards where our franchisees buy all food from our approved suppliers to help maintain the high standards customers rightly expect."

To be completely fair, I used to work in a restaurant and when we ran out of stuff people would often nip to the supermarket. It's just one of those things.
