Some of you may remember the Disney paint fiasco. l thought that it would be hard to top that one, but I think Tescos may just have done it.

Double Ended Colouring Pencils.

I kid you not. Clearly those are so much better than the old kind of one ended pencil because you, em, couldn't poke yourself in the eye with the blunt end of a normal pencil. No, hold on, because having two ends of a pencil is more useful than the old fashioned one ended kind. Nope - still not there. am I? Because two ended pencils are impossible to produce in the home without ... a pencil sharpener.

I give up. Will the last intelligent human to leave the planet please turn off the lights.

I don't remember the Disney paint fiasco. But if it's anything as useful as the double-ended pencils I need to hear about it.

Are they different colours on different ends?

That might, just might, conceivably have been useful.
