"Today your order will be delivered by Jesus in the Cabbage van"

You don't get the son of god delivering groceries for just any supermarket.

OMG I bet he is a WELL HOT Spaniard/Brazilian. envy

SoupDragon Tue 03-Apr-12 09:57:02

I wouldn't call him well hot unfortunately.

But yes, clearly of Spanish/South American descent rather than heaven sent grin

There is a Robbie Williams song: Jesus in a Camper Van.

Which is now stuck in my head with slightly altered lyrics.

When I was slagging off the Ocado website on here, I got told by other MNers "You will get a handsome man bring your shopping in! Order without delay!"

Imagine my delight when a bloke resembling a potato with currants for eyes knocked on my door...

Hahaha Buppers.
The Asda man who comes here is quite hot.

SoupDragon Tue 03-Apr-12 13:04:35

He may not have been "well hot" but, let's face it, he was the son of god which is pretty impressive.

Jesus in the Cabbage van has made my day.

LaGrenouille Tue 03-Apr-12 13:20:33

<snurk> what is a cabbage van ffs?

SoupDragon Tue 03-Apr-12 13:22:56

The ocado vans all have close up photographs of fruit or veg on the side.

I think there's lemon, courgette, strawberry and cabbage and possibly a couple more. I have no idea why they think I need to know which van it will be in but it has to be said today's effort made it worthwhile.

Thankfully the text arrived after Jesus had been otherwise I may not have been able to contain myself.

No, the text from Ocado arrived just as he'd left - I think it's because I have an early reserved delivery slot.

I was a little suspicious at the sandals and halo and the exact that the van appears to float just above the surface of the road though. Also, the water I ordered appears to have been turned into wine which is a bonus. I have high hopes for the 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish as well.

Jesus in the Cabbage van? Sounds a bit like a low-level expletive - like my brother's old favourite 'Christ on a bike'.

merlin Tue 03-Apr-12 15:32:15

That has made me chuckle smile

I had mine delivered by Colin in Tomato van on Saturday. Apparently it's rare if you ever get the same driver twice, to prevent 'familiarity' with customers. None of mine have ever been worth getting familiar with in the bedroom. Or maybe I have just had a bad run smile

ThatVikRinA22 Tue 03-Apr-12 15:54:44

why dont i ever get Jesus in the Cabbage van? i get Kevin in the Lemon van or Stuart in the Aubergine van....I want Jesus for easter!

emmanana Tue 03-Apr-12 16:01:11

I had Jesus once, and Wayne in the strawberry van.

mrsalwaysawake Tue 03-Apr-12 16:12:41

"I had Jesus once"
You so should have namechanged to MaryMagdelen for that post

LilRedWG Tue 03-Apr-12 16:14:46

This thread has amused me far too much - I actually have tears rolling down my cheeks.

CaveMum Tue 03-Apr-12 16:17:15

This thread has made my day grin

emmanana Tue 03-Apr-12 16:18:15

When Jesus came to my house, some items were damaged. I had a friend staying who dared me to ring up and tell them 'Jesus broke my eggs'. I think I laughed solidly for an hour......
