Our Monday Mug of the week - introducing Dave and Jess - our married couple.

We are going to have fun with them this year!

Joke Du Jour

  • I hate Russian dolls they're so full of themselves.
  • Throwing acid is wrong, in some people's eyes.
  • The first time I got a universal remote I thought to myself - "this changes everything".
  • I refused to believe my road worker dad was stealing from his job, but when I got home all the signs were there.  
  • I recently decided to sell my vacuum cleaner as all it was doing was gathering dust.
  • You can never lose a homing pigeon - if your homing pigeon doesn't come back - you've lost a pigeon.
  • Gambling addiction hotlines would do so much better if every fifth caller was a winner.  
  • Just because nobody complains, it doesn't mean all parachutes are perfect.
  • To the man on crutches, dressed in camouflage, who stole my wallet - you can hide but you can't run.
  • My friend keeps trying to convince me he's a compulsive liar, but I don't believe him.  
  • My wife just found out I replaced our bed with a trampoline - she hit the roof!
  • My wife tells me sex is always better on holiday - I hate receiving those postcards.  
  • Just got back from the world strawberry picking championships. Lost in the final to a girl with no legs - jammy c*nt.
  • I had a neck brace fitted years ago and I've never looked back since.

Which one should I give #BudgetBen for Valentine's Day tomorrow?  We don't actually sell these mugs (as I thought no-one would buy them); That said we've had a few enquiries, if there is enough interest we will make them available for sale.

Here in Australia, Married at First Sight has just started airing it's sixth season.  Not sure if anyone watches it in the UK? I know you have had three seasons. 

Apologies to all the NON MAFS (Married at First Sight) fans (you can skip this part).   This is actually the first year I have watched it.  It is a train wreck of cringeworthyness, my brain cells die every time I'm watching but I AM OBSESSED.  

Last week Bronson ( a contestant on the Aussie show) dropped the C -bomb on TV about his bride, it was bleeped out soo badly that you knew exactly what it was and everyone appeared very shocked, the experts gave him a very stern talking to.   There is a back story here which you probably don't know about as you are in the UK and don't get to watch the crap that is Australian TV.  Long story short Bronson married Innes ( he accidentally called her an*us by mistake and that has now stuck in our minds as her real name. ) Anyhoo she is a bit of a moany cow and has been very mean in the episodes to him.  The media here are going berserk that the C word was dropped by him but the public are in support of him because she is being such a cow. (yes I know it's reality TV and edited to high buggery so that stupid people like me with no brain cells can enjoy such trash).
My question is when is it ok to drop the C Bomb? The C word is very derisive - we know from customer feedback that a lot of you don't like it (we also know a lot of you love the word).   I  must admit the Australians use it a lot more freely than the Brits.  It can even be a nice greeting "Scarn on C*nt" (what's going on mate)  the English version of that would be "alright?".
For me its all about the context - like it is with any word.  I think the F word is used so regularly now that we need a stronger word to use.  My mother happens to think it is the worst word in the world (which is probably why I like dropping it in conversations around her and her friends when I can).   Our University of Northern Territory is one of our bestselling products, so has the time come now where the C word is acceptable?  Let us know what you think - ukinfo@theinappropriategiftco.com or comment with us on socials FB- The Inappropriate Gift Co   INSTA: @Inappropriategift 
The good news for us is we can't see Primark, ALDI or Debenhams stocking C word products anytime soon!  If you are not a fan of the c word don't scroll down as our shopping range this week is dedicated to the C-Bomb.
