A mother who bought leopard-print pyjamas with ‘ANIMAL’ written on the waistband was shocked to realise an unfortunate overlap revealed a rather different word on her backside.
Mother-of-three Maria Wright had bought the pyjamas for £11 from budget retailer Peacocks, which advertises them as a chance to ‘unleash your inner wild side’.
But when she put them on, her partner John realised there were two letters missing from the middle of word ‘ANIMAL’ on the waistband, spelling something quite rude just above her derriere.
“It says ‘ANIMAL’ all around and then straight above my bum says ‘ANAL’. It’s the perfect place to be honest,” said Maria from Peterborough.
But while she saw the funny side, Miss White was also embarrassed by the mistake, then horrified when her four-year-old son who has just started reading, asked her what the word on her waistband meant.
She added: ‘I do see the funny side but it’s more the embarrassment for me. I had to go down to the store to get my refund and show off the pyjama bottoms in front of everyone. The members of staff were laughing along with the rest of the store.”
The joke was well and truly on Miss White when you see the PJ bottoms were only £7 online – a full £4 cheaper than she paid for them in the shop. A real bum deal!
