A shoe shop in Swansea carried a banner over the whole of the window which read "BUY ONE GET ONE FREE". I have the photograph to prove it.

We have a nationwide shoe chain that continously has a BOGO special, except it's buy one, get one half off.
I suppose it's not fitting.

.. given that Santa has already been ensconced in ToyTown at the Westfields shopping centre, when do people think that it is polite to begin wishing people "Merry Christmas" ..

Somehow, Bob, I get the feeling a career in adventising just wouldn't be your bag.
