Boing: a not-on-fire kangaroo, yesterday

Wilko found itself in hot water over a hot sauce this week.

A globally inspired gift-pack of eight sauces sold by the discounter contained one example from Australia, thoughtfully titled ‘My Outback is Burning’. As if that weren’t classy enough, the label also carried the image of a (cartoon) kangaroo with its tail on fire.

Wilko has withdrawn the product and apologised. To be fair, it was probably conceived before the current bushfire disaster – you know, when burning wildlife was funny.
