Have we had new and improved yet?

I learned as a child that 'improved' inevitably meant I wasn't going to want to eat it any more.


(Recent example: Fairy liquid.  They've 'improved' the scent, presumably for the benefit of COVID-19 sufferers.  Completely coincidentally, they've launched a new - more expensive - version without any dyes or perfumes, which I'm now doomed to buying.  Bastards.)

You eat Fairy liquid? :o

I was in Halfords yesterday. Yes, I know, don't judge me though. Anyhoo, they have some kind of scheme for flogging used, or maybe ex demo bikes.

These are promoted as "Pre - pedalled".

"overhaul" it, or you can ride it.  (Jerome K Jerome)
