Now I can't see a thing close up to read or type without my glasses but my long sight is excellent so when I spotted the word SPANK from across the road on one of our local shops (a small deli actually) I just had to go have a look.

I got nearer and made out spank... those naughty little.....and then... oxidants and I was quite disappointed to find they were advertising a brand of mineral water, not advocating spanking or any naughty little whatevers. I snapped it on my trusty nokia all the same.

Ronnie: You manage to find such interesting signs and it's good that you always have your camera so you can share them with us.'

Geeze don't they know what those little words do to us? They could be advertising something more exciting than water. But I'm glad you posted the sign.

What everyone else said.



Damn those bratty little oxidants! Glad to hear that they are not getting away with it :-)

LOL... I think it's cute. Interesting choice of words for a water ad, I must say!

Hahaha! Do you ever watch "Deal or No Deal"?
I swear Noel Edmonds is a secret spanko!!!
He is always going on about giving the Banker a spanking...its turned into a catchphrase now! "Spank the Banker!"
It sends a shiver down my spine every time I hear it said... LOL xxxx

FD - Thank you, I do love to share what I find.

PK - I just love it when I hear or spot those words. My hand starts to instinctively wander to my bottom :)

Mouse - Thanks.

Prefectdt - LOL, thanks Prefectdt

Spirited - Thank you. I can't image it tasting very nice. Never seen the ad before.

Daisy, Don't like Noel Edmons so never watch the programme and I certainly can't imagine him being a spanko but yes I I know the feeling when you hear the words.

Thank you all for stopping by.

That is so cool!

My new BlackBerry Bold takes pictures too, so I can now always be ready for a startle too.

Fun find! Always interesting to see the word prominently displayed. Make certain to buy at least one of the product simply as a reward for their encouraging use of the word.

I never sees signs like this in the States. I think we banned the word in advertising or something! How thrilling to read the word right there in public! Thanks for sharing, wish we could get the *real thing* here.

Hermione - Thanks. I'm glad to have a phone with a good camera so I'm always at the ready :)

Redxxx - LOL, I never thought of buying a bottle. I wonder if spank is printed on it as well. Now I just have to go see.

Elysia - Your very welcome. It's rare here to see advertising with that thrilling little word.

Thanks and hope you all have a great weekend. They say we are going to have a sunny weekend in the UK, lets hope the weather people are right :)
