image for Retailer In Hot Water Over Fruit Fiasco
Alpha Centaurian orange or not? It's no trivial matter. Little Wayne's shocker

Top food, clothing, white goods, insurance, electronics, luggage, newsagent, books and Christmas decoration outlet, Tesco, is in hot water today after a customer bought an orange that was past its sell by date.

Speaking on behalf of the monopolising conglomerate, spokesman James T Kirk commented:

"When Mrs Klingon-Puffin bought this orange it was technically within its date. She neglected to read the label which clearly stated that it was in fact an Alpha Centaurian orange and these only have a shelf life of 3 minutes. So yah-boo!"

The hapless shopper told us:

"My little Wayne had it for his lunch and when he cut it open it was all multi-coloured and yucky. I want some compo over this. Wayne's traumatised"

But on the plus side The Spoof can report that the multi-coloured disc is now being used to aid players at the World Trivial Pursuit Championships currently being held in the Bristol Travelodge.
