Woolworths withdraws 'Lolita' bed


news.bbc.co.uk

Bedroom furniture for young girls with the brand name Lolita has been withdrawn by Woolworths following complaints from parents.

A parenting website said it was in "unbelievably bad taste" to give the bed the same name as a novel about a sexually precocious young girl.

Vladimir Nabokov's 1955 novel became famous for its controversial subject.

The story of a stepfather's sexual obsession with a 12-year-old girl has been adapted for film twice: first by Stanley Kubrick in 1962 and later in 1997 when Jeremy Irons played the lead part of Humbert Humbert.

I really have only one thing to say:

WHAT THE HELL WERE THEY THINKING!

Why not have the "Bundy Camping Kit"?

or the "Howard Shipman Doctor Set"?

Are these people brain dead???

Glad to help semper,
I thought of quite a few more, but they may have been a bit too rude,so I decided not to take the chance


I do agree though - someone should be fired, I mean, just what the hell were they thinking?

i work for this company and something that bugs us is how FAR out of touch Head office is with the real world, By far these people know what goes on in stores and outside their offices and they make retarded plans and force people to do things without knowing the effects,

THANK GOD I QUIT
