About me

I am a great fan of those ads which in some absurd way advertise products by means of sex. A well-shaven woman soaking up the hot sun and a deplumed chicken devoid of its head being roasted on a grill in a metal box – extraordinary! A top-less girl advertising roast chicken – that is a postcard I would send to other civilisations.

Great is my delight as I walk down the supermarket aisles and spot the very same products on shelves. I take in the atmosphere of these cleverly designed shops, where everything aims at appealing to my senses and stimulating my desires.
