Having enjoyed a lovely christmas dinner prepared by my wife, I thought some cheese and biscuits would finish the meal nicely, having macheteed my way into the brie i now have to deal with the biscuits.
This is no big deal as long as you have a pickaxe or a chainsaw in your cutlery tray.

Merry Xmas, but packaging is becoming stupid

I'll drink to that, if I can prise the bottle out of its plastic presentation pack!

I remember Dairylea ran a very successful advertising campaign based around its awkward packaging, so it obviously doesn't put customers off. I continue to buy Bovril but getting the top off can be a nightmare sometimes.

No problem getting the top off the whisky bottle the first time, its the fifth or sixth time I have problems with it.

I think that problem may be more common than you think!

Then it becomes so hard to even reach for the bottle one gives up and crawls off to bed.

I was given a Cheese & Wine set for Christmas.
I dont drink wine but loved the cheese.
Kindly donated the wine to my sister who was ever so graceful in accepting it!!!

I've just bought a USB memory stick from PC World, the plastic pack appears to be spot welded around the edge.

I wonder if motor manufactures are diversifying on their production lines...?
