Given the number of thrush-tacular nylon onesies in M&S's winter loungewear collection, you'd think that UTIs would be the last thing they'd want to remind shoppers of.

Apparently not

I am not full of UTI but...that's just crap. I only go in for food and school uniform these days.

CarlaBrooni, a UTI is a Urinary Tract infection.

I can't believe that this wasn't spotted during the design approval, the modelling and photoshoot and the hosting of the item to the website.

Oh that is brilliant - not quite up there with the fox fur, but not far off grin

For some reason, when I read the slogan it's in Mr.T's voice. The 'ful' being 'fool'.......
