Ladies and Gentlemen I give you the Percy Pig Xmas Themed Carrier Bag from Marks and Spencers which I had the embarrassment of carrying my purchases home in at the beginning of last week. In my opinion no one should be subjected to this form of ignominy especially not a grown up, who prefers Colin the Caterpillar.
