Your post made me laugh...it reminded me of me and my sister laughing over bizarre shopping lists. I once sent her to the shops for: A tin of anchovies, a 60watt lightbulb and a stapler (make of that recipe what you will).
But yours beats the lot: Banjo skin, drawing pins and a pair of shoes!
Has Mrs Mctag been to Lakeland yet? (if you can get in the carpark...loads of 'ladies who lunch' in 4 x 4's). I love it. Went the other day when Ruth came back from NY...bought some luxury clothespegs!
Mrs M would love it...it would have the most butch lesbian feminist drooling over their kitchen wares!
