Default Totally OT (Feminine good aisle)

Noticed today some very inaptly named tampons - "Jumbo Pack".

Are they just for obese women? What marketeer said, "let's call it a jumbo
pack - that will be appealing"




....or can't some people understand a good old fashioned 'Large pack'. My
wife is wondering if Jumbo is bigger than Large. Should other animal derived
names be used. Giraffe for anything tall??

Talking of Jumbo Packs ....
Do elephants use sheep as tampons?

I thought the term jumbo came from Jumbo the elephant, who was brought
to London in 1865. How much more old fashioned do you want!?

They will be in the section marked 'medium'.


So they know in advance when you are coming?

The opening to my cabaret act is "I'm not a psychic or a clairvoyant -
according to my wife I'm not even a medium... but would you be impressed if
I could tell you your parents names?"
