There are many items in my collection of tat. This particular one, however, is the absolute cream of the crop. Or the absolute worst, depending on your point of view. In my opinion, it is the tackiest and most tasteless thing I own.
Description: ceramic ash tray, in white, with the word “TWAT” emblazoned on it.
Bought at: Rhyl gift shop (are you seeing a pattern yet?)
Reason for buying: it’s in incredibly bad taste.
Yet again, mighty Rhyl stumps up the goods. This foul mouthed creation – the least subtle item I’ve seen in a gift shop, ever – literally screams tat. But with an extra “W” in there, too.
It was for sale in a gift shop – who on earth would buy this as a gift for someone whilst on holiday? What were they thinking in the boardroom when the idea for this ash tray was put forward?
I have to admit, though – it does make me smile…
