Moonpig has been forced to issue a plea asking the British public – that’s you – to stop sending them pictures of their genitals.
The personalised greetings card manufacturer told HuffPost UK it receives “at least two or three” submissions a day that “infringe our terms” and this number rises to as many as 20 around Valentine’s Day.
When asked if any long-suffering members of staff were routinely being bombarded with pictures of genitals, they said: “We have one guy who’s particularly good at spotting them although a couple occasionally slip through the cracks.”
And for anyone thinking that it’s probably one gender that dominates the saucy submissions, they added: “And yes, the girls are as bad as the boys.”
The plea, made in a tweet, received a predictably fevered response, gaining 15,000 likes at the time of writing.
No-one admitted to being a sender themselves, but there were many people apologising on behalf of others.
Anyway, you’ve been told now, so stop it.
