Charity Sends Counterfeit Goods To Eastern Europeans

Sunday, January 21st, 2007 at 10:13 by Mark Livett

In a startling move, Gloucestershire Trading Standards, in partnership with a local charity, are sending seized counterfeit goods to the poor people in East Europe.

Forget the poor people in East Europe, what about the poor people in East London?  A block in the supply of imitation Burberry and Nike will cause chaos in the Supermarket carparks as loitering chavs fight over the last few remaining baseball caps.

And further news from the do-gooder spoil-sports is that pirated DVDs and CDs, also seized, will be “recycled and re-used”.

Can you even recycle a CD?¬† That‚??s one recycle bin I’ve yet to see appear in Tesco‚??s Car park.¬†Will you have to separate DVDs and CDs the same way you separate coloured glass?¬† Star Wars Prequel Trilogy DVDs on the left, old Spice Girls CDs on the right?¬†

Recycled?¬† Taken home for the kids more like.¬† That‚??s probably where the “re-used” bit comes in.

Early reports indicate that when the charity handed over the first lorry load of designer knock-offs to the poor people of Eastern Europe they were less grateful than expected.

One Eastern European poor person who asked not to be named said “I thought we’d seen the last of this cheap tacky s**t when I finished packing it into the boxes for England”

    When Raisa opened her box she was overjoyed to find a Vuiton handbag but joy was soon shattered when her neighbour pointed out that the zip was made in China and that the name was suspiciously spelt with two ‘o’s and a ‘y’. Since that fateful day Raisa has suffered depression and headaches to rival any side effects she suffered from the Chernobyl fallout. An investigation has been oreded by trading standards back in Leeds U.K that is expected to cost one million pounds and take two years to complete. TS has vowed to track down the unthoughtful donors and prosecute them.
