The inimitable Viz. Makes me nostalgic for those old ads showing how you could become a millionaire selling rubbish merchandise.
When my gran died she was so poor there was nothing in the house worth having.
So I grabbed her false teeth as a memento. This would have been early 1980's
I later put the false teeth in the window of my second-hand shop with a little note saying they were the original false teeth worn by Clark Gable in the making of the film 'Gone With The Wind'
I explained they were very rare, very valuable but not for sale.
Apparently Terry Wogan picked up on it and ran with the story for a few days, we made the newspapers and TV.
You have no idea how many people took it for real.
For a while our answer machine message was simply some heavy breathing.
I told people they must have dialled the wrong number.
I have a fortune in my conservatory.
Simply send a pre-paid envelope and a cheque for £9.99 for your first lovely wasp.
Ah, Viz. Brilliant
Genuine Welsh Bees!
