smithsIt’s taken until the very end of Friday to make my week, but something finally has. The manager of the Lewisham branch of WHS – presumably not a dad himself – has produced a piece of Father’s Day promotion straight out of April 1st.

According to the store, The Crimes of Josef Fritzl is a must-buy book this Sunday. No thanks, I’ll just get a book about football or jazz, or something equally sufficient for a dad – though I do wish I’d thought of doing this, my old man does have a sense of humour. Which reminds me, I must remember to drop his card through the basement door.

If you don’t want to jump on the inevitable bandwagon and buy this for your dad, perhaps you should instead look for the Sean Jenkins fatherhood manual – available at all good un-PC bookstores.
