Those little bits of string that ruin your clothes

Written by KendoMonkey

Here we are, slap bang at the beginning of the twenty-first century and still at the lowest rung of the evolutionary ladder. What do I base that sleight on? Football hooligans? Night-life vomiters? No.

I base it on the fact that we still have problems with our clothes unravelling. You know those maddening bits of loose string, elastic or wool that fly away from your clothes. The more you try to pull them off, the more you end up unravelling your clothing. Why does this problem exist? I don't know! I mean, really, surely we should be able to avoid this kind of thing by now?

I blame the fabrics industry. Well. Obviously. I don't really understand how 'sweat-shops' are to blame for any of this. I mean, we're talking about clothes and all they sell is sweat...right? Anyway, I demand better quality, snag-free items.

[The above is not based on an incident which saw me 'de-clothed, tackle-out' by getting snagged on a nail on my neighbours fence.]

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
