Cookie Tin Has Hidden Drawing Of Dogs Having Sex
Edited on Fri Apr-16-04 10:00 AM by matcom
<snip>

LONDON (Reuters) - It looks like an ordinary old-fashioned cookie tin, but the hidden drawing of two dogs having sex in the grass makes it an instant collectors' item.

Biscuit makers Huntley & Palmers sold thousands of tins of treats featuring a copy of an early 20th century illustration of a genteel picnic -- without realizing that a disgruntled employee had hidden sexually explicit drawings in the scene.

Lawrences Auctioneers in Somerset, southwest England, is hoping collectors will bid 250 pounds ($446) when one of the tins goes on sale next Friday.

The unidentified artist who copied the illustration had lost his job at the cookie company and decided to take revenge on his employers while completing his final project.

He included a small picture of two dogs having sex and another of a pair of naked lovers. An obscene label written on a jam jar suggests it contains something other than jam.

9. Heard that on the radio alarm this morning ...
... definately one of those "Did I really hear that or am I still asleep?"
moments ...

Radio mouthpiece made an interesting comment though: Given that the
figures are pretty damn small, who the hell was looking that closely
at a biscuit tin to notice the dogs in the first place?

Hmmm ... does this mean matcom has relatives on this side of the pond?
