Friday weirdness

According to The Sun, a couple got the "wrong" DVD:

A DEVOUT Baptist couple spoke today of their disgust after they claimed they bought a classic musical DVD featuring Doris Day from their local supermarket, only to discover it was an Italian porn film.

Alan and Anne Leigh-Browne, from Wellington, Somerset, had been expecting to enjoy watching the Pajama Game, a romantic comedy featuring the 1950's icon.
. . .
Retired doctor Alan, 67, said he picked up the film, which was sealed in plastic wrapping, for £2.99 from the bargain bin of a Safeway supermarket in nearby Taunton last Monday.

On Thursday the couple, who are regular attenders of their local Baptist church, settled down with a cup of tea to watch the 1957 film which has a U (universal) certificate.

Mr Leigh-Browne explained: "We are big fans of Doris Day and were looking forward to the film, but we knew something was amiss when a warning flashed up on the screen advising under 18s not to carry on watching.

"Then some topless young women appeared and started talking in Italian - we were horrified, it's not what you expect from a Doris Day film.

"It was a pretty raunchy, explicit film, it certainly pulled no punches. My wife and I were very shocked but we watched it until the end because we couldn't believe what we were seeing.
. . .

A spokeswoman for Morrisons, who now run Safeway, said they would be willing to investigate the incident.

She said: "Regrettably the customers involved would neither leave their
contact details nor return the DVD to their nearest store or head office after being urged to do so on several occasions.

ROFL. Just couldn't tear their eyes away from it. . . .
