I think what we need to know Mike is exactly how you stumbled upon this site (which I have now bookmarked under the nom de plume 'Pimp My Cans')?
I found it years ago, probably on Dogpile searching for the cheapest DT100's, it's been online for a long time. I wouldn't be suprised if it pre-dates google. It made me smile, then I promptly forgot about it until we were having a 'weird fetish' conversation at work.
For me it just conjures up an image of some bloke getting in from work & telling his wife he's bought her something she'd look stunning in. I'd just love to see her face when she opens her pressie.
Not much in life worth running for. Or from.
