Thankyou Ebay!

It is with immense pleasure that I present to you:

The witticisms, I'll leave up to you.

Okay, so the dude with the short version of the granny square vest (pic #3) should maybe have tried to suck in his gut a bit more.

The dude with the beige vest and the stupid moustache (pic #5) looks sly and shifty and would probably sell you a very dodgy used car and try to pick you up in a nightclub even though he is married with 3 children.

And I think there is a very good reason for that large red cross to be behind the dude with the big grey hair, and probably just below it, cropped out of the shot, was the wordage "Definitely NO poncy granny square zip vests allowed. Ever."

Finally, is the dude in the blue dressing gown squeezing his zits?

Okay that's it, I'm done.

I'm with Stomper, those granny square vests are the worst/most hilarious.

Second only to the chin on the guy in the blue bathrobe for general hilarity.

OK so I know I said I was leaving the witticisms up to you, and so far the observations made are astute, but I can't hold back any longer.

That last one obviously belongs on a lady, a tweedy woollen skirted lady of an English Manor House complete with stables and some horses.

Also LOOK at the RED toilet! and those blue bottles? what are they? anyone?

Picture #3 - guy in orange granny square vest - he's checking out the other male models.

Picture #5 - taupe vest - think "effete Gene Wilder"

The guy with the moustache is looking behind him to see if anyone has noticed that he made that smell.

(sorry, I have a 13 year old son)

Oh yeah Tracey. You are so right. Moustache guy definitely just farted.

Guy in # 4 has pants on that are waaaaaaay too tight. Don't know why I noticed that.

Fellow in # 5 looks like he should be in a Peter Sellers movie.

And the guy in # 6. I think he is in love with the horse.

Please tell me that second pic is NOT a set of crocheted ties.

50 patterns for 50p - what does the p stand for? Ponces? Poofters?

1. What every modern strangler is carrying these days
2. "My granny went to crochet club, and all I got was this lousy tea cosy"
3. "So then I said, Doris, I said, Doris, I'LL be the man around here if you don't mind, next time, I want a lilac one".
4. "Ummm...why is that bloke coming toward me with an axe...?"
5. "Yes, you nasty vixen, it IS possible to wear a red skivvy with a patchwork vestule, and I won't hear another word about it!"
6. "Ha!! I KNEW there was a whisker there! Look! Mary? MARY? Come quick honey, look! Can I use your Ladyshave now please?"
7. "I touch myself, I want you to love me..."

Ugh. A knit tie? The granny square guys just look too strange. Do you think their grannies made those from old blankets?

Mustache man moonlights as a porn star. Boom chicka pow pow.

The guy with the horse.... I'd be nervous if I was that horse. The look in that guys eyes.... He might be into a whole different kind of love your pets.

I agree with Mary. Dude #4 is managing his own vasectomy.

I wonder if any hapless victim got one of those ties for Xmas? Might have made an emergency fan belt For the CAR!

Pink shirt & orange vest= totally twat.

Just likes wearing tights.

Pink skivvy? What do you mean I look fruity?

Red skivvy & vest crocheted from Granny's leftover lisle stockings, & balls of white string. The horse thinks it looks tasty.

A knitted dressing gown??OMG.
I think it is a zit on the chin.

The last one is definitely cross dressing- look which side the buttonholes are on!

It is truly hard to believe that this was once ever, ever ok for men to wear - even in this age of the 'metrosexual'. Thanks for the biggest laugh I have had in ages girls. I quite like those bottles though!

I reckon there was more than one roll of film used to take the pic of the first guy in the granny-square vest. He has that "you cannot be serious" look on his face.

Oh yeah, they are ties.

"Three ties, two entirely in crochet and one in knitting and crochet. One of the crochet ties is wide and handsome, the other is in random colours. The knit and crochet tie is slim and sleek"
