I had to giggle at this news story
today. Burberry is threatening to sue a company who are using it to make clothes for ferrets. I find it strange that they mind their design being used in this way, considering how many of their customers look like ferrets. It just seems like a natural progression.
However, has anybody asked the ferrets what they think ? Maybe they don't want to be decked out in the national costume of neds. It could be construed as cruelty to animals. I know I was ashamed when I had to go on holiday with my mother who had bought the largest fake-Burberry suitcase she could find. I still have nightmares sometimes.
The best bit in the article is the very last line where Burberry say they have "no plans for a line of ferret accessories, but "that's not to say there won't be."." They're happy to sue this company for using their fabric and now they're going to steal their idea ! Tsk, tsk, not playing fair. I look forward to the Burberry vs. Ferret World cases. There's a movie in there somewhere.
