No-nonsense grandad turns off film during sex scene

A GRANDFATHER has turned off his television as soon as a sex scene began.

78-year-old Norman Steele was watching a film with his wife and teenage grandson until an on-screen couple began kissing passionately. Steele immediately grabbed the remote and turned the television off.

His grandson Tom Booker said: “Credit where it’s due, grandad wasn’t fucking about. There was no feeling embarrassed and waiting for it to finish.

“He could have changed the channel but instead he turned it right off, as if angry with the entire medium of television.

“I’m not even sure it was going to be a proper sex scene, there were two people snogging but it might have cut to something else after a few seconds. It was Romancing The Stone which I’m fairly sure is a PG.

“Afterwards there was silence. Nan kept doing her knitting and, after sitting there looking cross for a bit, grandad picked up his copy of The Mirror.”

Lidl Christmas advert shows argument in drink aisle

LIDL has unveiled its Christmas advert about a husband attempting to justify the purchase of thirty cans of bitter.

The bargain supermarket chain has premiered its festive offering, which shows how a couple’s drink-related dispute leads ultimately to a grudging reconciliation.

In the advert ‘Cathy’ is buying food for when her parents visit, while husband ‘Martin’ tries to sneak large amounts of competitively priced beer into the trolley.

Creative director Julian Cooke said: “She has a massive go at him about blowing all their money on booze and he mutters something about how she ‘never used to be such a moody cow’. That’s a great moment which is both sad and funny.

“However the advert ends with reconciliation as they agree to put back the potatoes and carrots so they can have a large bottle of her favourite tipple, Lidl’s own-brand Putinoff vodka.”

Mother-of-two Emma Bradford said: “I liked it, it combined a good story and real emotion with some solid factual information about drink prices.”
