1 in a million


Before everyone starts scoffing and telling me I've been punked once again, consider that the photo above accompanies a story in today's Telegraph (UK) about an extraordinarily rare chimeric Golden Delicious apple which recently appeared on a tree in the orchard of Ken Morrish of Colaton Raleigh, Devon, who's been harvesting the apples from trees in his garden for 45 years but has never seen anything like it.

According to the article, "Experts believe the odds of finding an apple with such a perfect line between the green and the red are more than a million to one."

Jedi Dressing Gown/'Star Wars' Bath Robe


From the website:


Jedi Dressing Gown/'Star Wars' Bath Robe

"Star Wars" fans rejoice — the Jedi Dressing Gowns are here.

What could be better on an evening than strutting around in your Jedi robe, making sure your little Lightsaber doesn't inadvertently pop out due to your lack of jimmy-jams? 

The Jedi Dressing Gown is made of soft 100% cotton velour and has a Jedi logo embroidered on the front. 

The bath robe's large hood, sash belt and wide sleeves are classic features of a Jedi robe. 

Will you be seduced by the dark side (your smelly old bathrobe with cat hair all over the back) or will you fight for justice... or at least the last Jaffa Cake... in a brand new Jedi Dressing Gown? 

If the force is strong in you, or you know a "Star Wars" fan, why not treat them to a "Star Wars" Bath Robe? 

An ideal gift, the Jedi Dressing Gown will easily replace that scruffy old bath robe you bought a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away....

Features and Details:

• Two front pockets and a cotton belt

• 144cm long, 62cm chest, sleeve length 62 cm

• 100% cotton velour is machine-washable on cool setting

• Dressing gown is one size and fits most adults from men's sizes medium to extra-large

Does your man look more Jabba than Skywalker in that old dressing gown? 

Is his smelly old bath robe worse than a Rancor monster's breath? 

Get him a Jedi Dressing Gown and witness a true transformation.

What better gift could a man ask for, with superb quality and pockets big enough to stash the remote control, tissues, packet of biscuits and a Bantha... ha, ha, ha, we jest of course....

Fantastic for Jedis aged 16 to 160.

Yes, I'm quite aware it's impossible to read the names above.

"Shave on the go with this rechargeable travel shaver that plugs into your laptop's USB port to charge. With floating double-head system, LED indicator and built-in USB arm."


Note: you'll probably get a better shave if you remove the shaver from the USB port before shaving.
