Truth in Advertising

Bowel cancer is no laughing matter.  It’s the third most common cancer in Scotland and reaps its revenge on weary 50 year old men that have enjoyed too fine a life. (Actually it takes on all sorts if the truth be told.)

And it’s embarrassing, because,where’s it best self -monitored, or worse, encountered?

That’s right, in the WC after examination of last night’s dinner.

So the Leith Agency has taken an admirably fresh, in fact humorous, approach to warning men of my age to check out their jobbies as they read the sports pages in their cludgie.

It’s great stuff. That’s why I wrote about it in my blogspot on All Media Scotland.

Funnily enough The Bridge, and my old pal Doug Cook took on the subject in a different way, but also in the cludgie, albeit in a slightly more restrained manner several years ago.  In fact you’d hardly call theirs a cludgie at all.  It’s a toilet, for sure.  (Even a bathroom for us Edinburgh folk).

You choose what works best for you.

In fact, let’s a have a poll shall we?

One thought on “Truth in Advertising

  1. I wrote a 17 syllable haiku about it…

    CLEPINGTON ROAD
    Six Sticks.
    Mere Smear.
    Window dressing
    For a clean screen.
    Poetry in motion.

    Those who have done the test will get it immediately. The words came to me as I was sitting on the cludgie doing the test. The title is the address of the screening lab in Dundee. 3 cheers for the nanny state!
