The bus stop bust top of Rosie Webster

spoiler alert: this post makes reference to the Nov 1 episode on CBC

I'm sure this line will be repeated in TGIF on Friday but it's impossible to resist. Take it away Rosie: "These breasts and this brain is my passport out of this dump" (well, two out of three isn't bad - ed).

Just when you think things can't get any worse for the Websters, Rosie finds new ways to humiliate herself and her family. This time, she's become a pin-up girl on bus stops all over Manchester, proudly displaying her 'bounty' with a great big pair of hands 'photo-shopped' over her 'assets'.. you get the idea.

Why, Rosie, why?

Apparently she thought she was doing a photo shoot for a high end perfume (Channel 5 by Alvin Klein? - ed). Seems there was a slight misunderstanding, Turns out the photos are being used in ads to promote a cleaning product for drains (you know, the same place where all that private school education money went - ed).  And, instead of a timeless, sexy slogan like: "Between love and madness lies Obsession" (for Calvin Kelin's 'Obsession'), Rosie's ad says: "Sump, an extra pair of hands around the house."   Could be worse, I suppose. Could be: "Premium Plungers: busting through your clogged drain" or "Weatherfield Septic Tanks: put your arms around our waste" or... (that's enough - ed).

Well, this is bad. Kev's gone off his head. Sally, trying to deal with her own health issues, is distraught. But wait, maybe it's not so bad. Perhaps Rosie could work her way up to a better class of product placement, like I dunno, household cleansers or Shamwows. But before you can say 'damage control', she drops a bombshell. She wants to have a boob job! (hey, at least she wants a job - ed).

Kev's livid. Sally's crying. I'm speechless.
