Big Fat Bribe Blog: Cleaning Up
In which we see a little less dirty money and a little more nostril
This article is from 2015.
In a delightful change from all previous dirty, dirty bribes, this week we’ve received one of the most aesthetically-pleasing (and hygienic) gifts we could have hoped for.
The nice folks at Peacetime Productions really pushed the boat (or the bath) out in hope of getting the word out about their Fringe show Scour. And in keeping with the cleanly nature of the show, they only went and created some personalised soap with the puntastic: ‘Was’soap The List?’
Well, if there’s two things we’ve always said we love, it’s bathing and bad puns. The accompanying note reads: ‘Bribing is a dirty business, so we’ve sent you something to help clean you up’ (they know us so well), and it was all packed into a proper snazzy sequined shower cap.
If you fancy cleansing your soul, you could do worse than checking out Scour at Clouds & Soil at 2.15pm. It’s ‘a one-man play about the true value of life, and the lengths we go to when protecting the ones we love’ starring Josh Considine, who enjoys rehearsing in a towel. Just sayin’. And it's written by Rebecca Monks who, in a truly dirty move, may also write for a certain bribe-procuring publication (as in us. The List). Hey, girl's got to make a living.
In more terrifying bribe news, our next offering came with the description: ‘the perfect gift for the person who has everything (apart from nightmares).’ Once we’d gingerly read on, it turns out James Ross wasn’t wrong. What can only be described as ‘horror printed on a tea towel’ was waiting for us. No offence James love, but I think it’s safe to say you weren’t going for your best angle when you decided to take this particular photo.
