Detention never felt so sensual

Such is the unrepentant nature of the current financial downturn that new meals are being invented. Where once there was a mid-morning lunch known as “brunch”, there is now a one-meal-a-day rule in most workplaces/households, meaning that breakfasts are being mixed with dinners, lunches, suppers, tiffins, elevensies, and high teas – making “brunner”. One day, futuristic children with silver outfits and plastic haircuts won’t believe that humans used to eat three whole meals every day. Brunner will be all they know. Which makes great friend of the site, Woody‘s, amazing second hand discovery even more poignant and meaningful. “It’s The Breakfast Club, on Amazon, for a penny!” he roared, cheerfully. For those who don’t know, The Breakfast Club is the story of a geek, a twit, a prom thing, a doofus, a goth, a hippy, a dimwit, a douche bag, a moron, a stupid face, a nomark, a male model, a twunt, and a numb-nuts – all getting to know each other over a tense Saturday morning detention. It stars our second favourite redhead (after the sexy one in Mad Men), Molly Ringwald, and our third favourite Estevez, Emilio. A brilliant brilliant film. Get your 1p copy here.

Fantastic sticking-it-to-the-recession!
