Nice Binos in Selfridges

They can be had for half the price elsewhere. Typical Selfridges mark-up.

Indeed - I probably should explain that to my kids, who I think left Selfridges a bit depressed and thinking they’d never be able to afford any nice things in life.

(although note that the above doesn’t include the mount and tripod, which Selfridges does in their price)

If I were going to spend 11 grand on a visual observing setup, it wouldn't be that one!

As well as disliking the price, I take exception to Selfridge's inability to use capital letters properly. How very parvenu of them, my dears.

:Dlly

Talking of parvenu, Olly, I think you have been hoist by your own petard. 


The retail emporium is Selfridges, also known as Selfridges & Co. It is operated by Selfridges Retail Ltd (how very mundane of them). So it would be “Selfridges’ inability”.

Oh, I thought it was on show at Sid Selfridge's shop, just down the road from where I lived in Scunthorpe-Under-Railbridge. I should've known because Sid used to sell fridges, mainly...

PS, I lost touch with Sid after I left Scunthorpe-Under-Railbridge but, while I was back up North, I bumped into him in my Aunt's kitchen. He'd become a real fridge magnate.

Olly.

I am grateful to another SGL member for messaging me with this pun. For reasons incomprehensible to me, she was reluctant to take the credit for it... :D

I really should not encourage you, but I had to laugh at this one! ;)

What cracked me up was 'CUSTOMERS WHO BOUGHT THIS PRODUCT ALSO BOUGHT...'

I think the bijou eyepiece tray is the winner.

Simon

I ask you, what kind of person with that kind of wallet only has one two-inch eyepiece?

:grin:lly
