Grab Bags and Value Statements, some more crappy phrases thrown at me this week. Enjoy! #TightwadDad

Walkers Crisps have "grab bags".
They look exactly like a packet of crisps.

But they're not.
It's a "grab bag".

(Maybe it's to make it sound really active.
Though, looking at how many crisps are in there,
guess "packet" isn't exactly the right collective noun.)

Then Virgin Media sent me a "Value Statement".

Not a statement, but a "Value Statement".

Maybe the marketing agency that came up with Virgin Media's Value Statement,
risks coming off as a complete "Value Grab Bag".
