From Bruce Almighty on the Shaky Island

My polymath mate from New Zealand found this little list on the ground in the trolley parking area of  New World, Stratford, Taranaki, New Zealand. 

Being Bruce, he is hoping that the entry “insines” turns out to be something rude. I have had no inspirations, divine or otherwise, to say what this shopper was looking for.

Bruce and I also wonder what in heck Toilet Cue can be. Is Toilet going to star in a local stage production and is the shopper looking a suitable item to give Toilet his/her prompts?

What about Cat Roll? Any ideas about that?

Thank you Bruce. Folks, do yourself a favour and toddle off to his blog  . You never know what you might find there.

  1. Love the TV advert – Handy Andy, Murder on dirt!

  2. I wonder if cat roll is cat litter for the cat tray? The wood chip variety resembles tiny rolls.
    Over here you can buy a cheap roll of mixed pressed meats for the dog, looks like Polony, so perhaps a cat version is available.
    I remember Andy Handy adverts from when we got our first TV! No idea about insines!

  3. Sounds like The Cat is havin’ a wild party! Woot Woo! 😉 😛 😀

    When I taught 5 and 6 year olds we used to give Potty “cues”…like “Time for everyone to line up to use the bathroom.”
    “But, teacher, I don’t have to go.”
    “Remember: Everyone is going to give it a go!” (try) HA! 😀

    I didn’t know Handy Andy was for sale! HA! 😛

    Maybe incense, not “insines”?!?!?!

    Interesting list! I really haven’t a clue on a few of those things! I’d love to know what they are. Maybe Handy Andy is a cleaning product?!?!
    HUGS!!! 😀

  4. I am stumped by what this all means. No idea what a cat roll could be, but it doesn’t sound appealing.

    Toilet care maybe? I would love to purchase a “Handy Andy” at the store. I am in need of a handy person, by any name! How wonderful if I could procure one at the shops! “Cat Roll”. Well, I don’t even want to go there…seriously, WTH is that. No wine, and I think this person would be better off with wine than a milk shake!

    • In Dismal Swamp, a retired fellow advertised as Hire a Husband. I assume it was for odd maintenance jobs around the place, or maybe he’d sit around and tell the same story, over and over!

      No wine. What is the matter with people anyhow?


  6. Is it toilet blue? Some people like their toilet water to be refreshing and put blue dye in the cistern. Perhaps they want to hide what they are doing in the toilet and give it some colour..
