oops: December 2009 Archives

275x250.jpgBen Southall - the winner of a competition for the best job in the world - has been stung by a deadly jellyfish.

The 34-year-old Brit was just days away from the end of his six month stint at "caretaker" of Hamilton Island in Queensland when he was stung by a deadly Irukandji jellyfish.

Though tiny (they measure just 2cm) the Irukandji are extremely venomous and stings can often result in people being hospitalised, and are sometimes fatal.

Ben had been on a 'hard-earned break' from his £75,000, six-month job when he was stung while jetsking.

Given that his normal duties include scuba-diving to check on marine life and writing a blog about his experiences we are finding it a bit hard to feel sorry for him.

275x250.jpgAn electrical retailer has revealed an unintentionally funny slogan on their website  -- suggesting you may want to shop elsewhere.

Dixons have launched the slogan "Dixons: The last place you want to go" which may not convey exactly the meaning they intended.

At first it was thought their website may have been hacked, but bosses confirmed it was planned and was meant to suggest you could find everything you could need, not that Dixons is a last resort.

After a brief moment of mocking online this morning, the high-street turned online store pulled the slogan from the site… but it remains true for many people.
