Cash'n'Carrion Since we've just restocked our ever-popular "My job went to India and all I got was this lousy t-shirt", er, t-shirt, we thought that this would be a good opportunity to show the outsourcing apparel masterpiece "in the field".
So, cue pic of none other than Reg Strategy Boutique head honcho Pranav J. Oza sporting said shirt after a triumphant completion of this year's London Marathon. Those readers who have ever wondered about the long-term effects on the human body of continual exposure to joss-sticks and whalesong, followed by a swift 26-mile jog for charity, need only examine Pran's Powerpoint-presentation-ravaged visage. Enough said.
Still, at least he's still got a job to call his own - even if years of synergistic brainstorming of the Reg brand frontage will eventually do for him. That's more than can be said for all those unfortunate former callcentre operatives whose jobs ended up in Bangalore and who are now scouring slag heaps for scraps of coal with which to warm their malnourished, weeping children.
The solution to this humanitarian tragedy? Simple - they should get themselves down to Cash'n'Carrion and buy huge quantities of our India outsourcing shirt with which to swaddle their mewling newborn infants against the winter chill. Or, they could simply wear one down the pub where sympathetic employed people will buy them beer out of embarrassment and pity.
The "My job went to India and all I got was this lousy t-shirt" costs £14.03 (£16.49 inc VAT) and features a full-colour transfer print lovingly hand-pressed onto the garment by eight-year-old Indonesian children. It's available - as is the local custom - in sizes ranging from small to XL.
And that concludes this shameless plug for our merchandising tentacle. We would just like to add that Pranav J. Oza is available for rebranding flip-chart presentations at weddings, Bar Mitzvahs and funerals at reasonable rates including a discount for students, OAPs and struggling dotcom start-ups. ®
