A sweeping statement.






A sweeping statement.

A Hong Kong company
was much criticised
for making an offer
they thought hard to resist.
Discounted laptops
for male employees
and vacuum cleaners
for the distaff side.
But the implication
was decidedly sexist.
Most men protested
saying they were keener
on having the option
of a vacuum cleaner.
