The Rogue Employee Tin
For almost a century Huntley & Palmers biscuit tins have been seen on the tea tables of well-to-do Brits. What few of those Brits realized is that the tins contained a surprise... not in the biscuits themselves, but in the illustration on the outside of the tin. Apparently a rogue employee, early in the twentieth century, hid various sexually explicit scenes in the illustrations. For instance, a tin now up for sale at Lawrences Auctioneers in Somerset shows two dogs having sex in the flowerbed, if you look very carefully. Reuters has rather
prudishly blurred the cover of the tin in the picture accompanying their article, so you can't see the dogs,
but luckily Lawrences' itself has a picture of the tin
, in which you can just see the dogs. They're in the flowerbed on the right-hand side.
