Dear Nellie,
No this isnít a reference to prices in the Merch Desk shop but is in connection with afore mentioned establishment.

Having recently visited the t-shirt section I couldnít fail to notice that the product photos left a lot to be desired in encouraging the browsing visitor to part with their hard earned cash. Having researched advertising techniques and seen how the flaunting of the human physical form and attributes can subconsciously sell a product, I have come to the conclusion that your merchandise sales would benefit greatly from being displayed and worn by a model. . . . . . just look what Twiggy did for mini skirts and Beckham did for boxer shorts.

With this in mind may I take this opportunity to forward my services at a substantially reduced rate. Iíve taken the liberty of including a recent photo which Iím sure will dispel any doubts should you not be totally convinced. OK, so it has been slightly airbrushed and photoshopped. . . . . . . . even the top models have that done!

Paul - that's certainly going to appeal to a certain sector of the market out there. We don't need those anorexic models in Prog do we? Wink

Good point. But Rob, you're forgetting - we're the cover models, aren't we? Wink

It's Paris or Milan. I forget... Wink

We thought it was great too, Paul, until M&S nicked the idea. Our people are just trying to negotiate a settlement.
