They printed WHAT on a Nutella jar?!
Only a pure chancer would get away with this
Letting people customize Nutella jars? You could nearly see this one coming.
Irish writer and all-round chancer Seamas O'Reilly (of little known Metro crush-writing fame) noticed that Selfridges, a popular department store in the UK, was printing personalised Nutella jars in the lead-up to Christmas, and he immediately saw his opportunity for devilment.
His only obstacle in labelling Nutella jars with rude words that resemble terms for excrement was a small staff at the Selfridges store. He tried his luck with this first one and we can't believe he got away with it.
I can now confirm that Selfridges will put *anything* you ask for on a Nutella jar. pic.twitter.com/i5DFjtAHHr— Seamas, based on the novel Push by Sapphire (@shockproofbeats) December 9, 2015
He had a small bit of trouble with the next one... luckily, with a bit of Irish luck he persevered
The following is a conversation he had with one of the staff there
Me: It's the Irish for Arsenio
Guy: Right, right. I know it.
Me: Ha, do you get a lot of rude ones?
Guy: All the time, sir.
Me: What's the rudest one you've had?
(Guy thinks for literally 15 seconds)
Guy: Probably fatpussy sir.
Me: You can't be too careful. Bye!
Not gonna lie, this was even harder to get past the staff in Selfridges than 'backdirt' was. Worth it though. pic.twitter.com/cuZ3hCoPKB— Seamas, based on the novel Push by Sapphire (@shockproofbeats) January 5, 2016
Having dodged the lax Selfridges security team twice; he was clearly on a roll
Third I've gotten past those censorious prudes in Selfridges. I've found my true calling. pic.twitter.com/hF695PS2Fb— Seamas, based on the novel Push by Sapphire (@shockproofbeats) January 13, 2016
His collection stands at three

On whether or not he will continue attempting to print rude words on personalised Nutella jars..
"It's kind of hard to come up with more that explicitly imply that there's poo in the jar," O'Reilly said.
We think we could come up with a few more, what would you print on yours? Answers in the comments.
