Whoops Missus! Gets Yer Doris Days Out, Pwhoooah!

I meant to get "His Girl Friday" but wound up with this
I have no idea what this entry's title means; it was just my gut reaction after reading this on the BBC web site this morning:

BBC NEWS: A devout Baptist couple who bought a Doris Day DVD from a supermarket were shocked to find a sex film instead.

Alan and Anne Leigh-Browne, from Wellington, Somerset, had been expecting to enjoy The Pajama Game.
Instead they were confronted by Italian sex film - Tettone che Passione, which translates "Breasts, What a Passion".
"Some topless young women appeared and started talking in Italian... it's not what you expect from a Doris Day film," Mr Leigh-Browne said........... "It was a pretty raunchy, explicit film, it certainly pulled no punches," Mr Leigh-Browne said.

"My wife and I were very shocked but we watched it until the end because we couldn't believe what we were seeing. The film became progressively more graphic, there was no plot to it, it was just sex."

Quite, Mr Leigh-Browne, quite. The rest of the story is here.

Foreign languages? Passion in the title? Devout baptists reeling in shock? I smell the hand of Mel Gibson!

"I smell the hand of Mel Gibson" sounds naughtier than I intended given the context of this post.

I think they did the right thing by watching it to the very end. I have had to endure similar experiences. Deeply traumatic.

Bowlesy, the phrase "Tom B and the saveloy" comes to mind.

Jamie: will it be a pop up book? Phwoooaaaar!
