Because prior knowledge of literary classics, particularly controversial ones, can prevent expensive marketing mistakes, like naming a bed for six-year-old girls, The Lolita.

Poor old Woolworths

Oy.

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

Hi! =P

Hi, you! I had no idea you were a blogger. Or are you not? Lovely to see you here, anyhow.

Yup! I've been here for awhile. It's easier to post pictures on Blogger than LJ so I post more visual things here.

Smirk. VERY unfortunate name. Surely everyone has heard of Lolita, not just the well-read? Hell, even I've read it, and I'm hardly the literati.
