I am waiting for Argos to sell a shopping trolley designed to carry it…
101 uses for an Argos catalog
1. As a door stop
2. As an alternative to tearing a phone book in half to prove your strength
3. Great for kids to make collage pictures out of
4. For engaged couples to pick their wedding presents from
anyone want to add any more?
last night my daughter (7yrs) was put to bed by my mother. My daughter chose to read the argos catalogue instead of having her usual story. The book is half her body weight and yet she persists with her fumblings. She likes the products in the last 3rd of it. She likes to make mental lists of dream items that nanny might buy. This is a sad indictment of youth today.
I’ve no idea what Argos is in the U.K., but here it’s a football (American football, though modified slightly because we’re Canadian) team. The prospect of having to carry them around is daunting.
Dave, I think we have received a message from the Lord concerning Argos. How else could two unrelated cartoonists draw cartoons relating to this particular corporate entity and it merely be coincidence?
See this one, which I assure you I drew last week (but didn’t post until this morning)…
Ellen, when my sister was little she used to ask for my dad to read the chinese menu to her instead of a book! She particularly liked to go ‘Black bean sauce – bleurgh!’
I love Bill Bailey’s stand-up about Argos – he calls the instore catalogue ‘the laminated book of dreams’ and the Argos staff are ‘the pale guardians of the treasure’.
