Local man Timmy Smullet's 'Nasal Cleansing Service' has gone out of business after his freakishly large hands frightened off customers.
Timmy, a former welder from Brighton, started the company in May 2009, but just a few months later it slowly dawned on him that he was not getting any customers.
Posters displayed prominently all over town showed Timmy dressed smartly in a shirt and tie and waving his rather large hands, accompanied by the slogan "Pick Me!".
"On second thoughts, I think the poster was a bad idea. I can appreciate how some people would be wary of letting a man with such giant fingers and thumbs dig around inside their nostrils", said Timmy.
A rival company, 'Pickem's Inc', has been doing a steady trade due to word of mouth. Its staff of 5 all hold diploma's in snot collection and have dainty hands and long slender fingers aerodynamically suited to the nasty work.
