When we asked the question "what's the weirdest present you have
ever given your mother for Mother's Day?" last week, we did not
anticipate quite how weird some of the answers would be. Among the
crueller entries were fake dog poo and a brick, while one person
served up their own placenta for Mother's Day brunch!
But the story that tickled us most was emailed in by Simon who
had intended to order his mother a small model of Morph (pictured
above). The sentiment was there - it was his mother's nickname for
him when he was younger - but what Simon hadn't realised was that
he'd actually ordered a human-sized version! Worse still, his
mother lives in a remote village in Spain and this larger-than-life
delivery caused total mayhem with the modest local postal service.
She's been known by the locals as Señora Loca ever since and she's
now quite the celebrity in the northern Spanish hills!
Congratulations, Simon. A bundle of our lovely Tumble bed linen is
winging its way to you now.
