Or whatever they call middle-schoolers in Britain.
Tesco is a big-time company. One of the biggest, as Wikipedia attests:
Tesco PLC is a multinational grocery and general merchandise retailer headquartered in Cheshunt,Hertfordshire, England, United Kingdom. After Walmart, it is the second-largest retailer in the world measured by profits and second-largest retailer in the world measured by revenues. It has stores in 12 countries across Asia, Europe and North America and is the grocery market leader in the UK (where it has a market share of around 30%), the Republic of Ireland, Malaysia, and Thailand….
But that didn’t prevent them from making a big-time mistake. The Guardian reports:
Whoever designed this package of buttermilk may well have had something else on their mind at the time.
There’s no escaping it: the design on this carton looks a lot like a penis. And it’s a carton of buttermilk. We don’t need to say much more…
Obviously, there have been jokes aplenty….
