There was a bit of a fuss over that advert over there last week. Apparently UK TV regulators decided that the use of the phrase 'bloody hell' was offensive so they banned the advert (the ban has now been lifted). I don't know who they think it was offensive to but they've obviously not been out recently or they'd have heard a lot worse than the odd 'bloody hell' creeping into the vernacular

File the e.on ad placement under "Major Oops."

@Sam: Victorian times are back again?
@Andrea: excellent suggestion!

Gas... mnjaa... Who underestimates details, right?

Absolutely! It's the details that make the difference...

This is quite incredible! I can't believe this is a coincidence. Someone did it on purpose!

Of course they did. Germans, tss... ;-D

Serge,

Your sense of humor didn't translate well on that last comment. :-(

What can I say, Andrea? Nobody's perfect... Like the great Mel Brooks once said: "As long as the world is turning and spinning, we're gonna be dizzy and we're gonna make mistakes." but he also claimed: "Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you fall into an open sewer and die." Harsh when taken litterally. But in other words: don't take things so seriously. And I actually hàve begun to like Germans, you know...

Ok, at least you offered up some great Mel Brooks quotes :-)
