    Watchdog snaps at car wash's 'handjob'
    Wed Aug 3, 4:45 AM ET

    LONDON (AFP) - A car wash called Scrubbers was reprimanded by advertising watchdogs in Britain for circulating a leaflet that boasts "the best handjob in town".

    Services offered by Scrubbers, based in Luton, northwest of London include an "In 'n' Out and a Polish Off", "The Quickie," "The Full Monty" and a "Personal Service".

    The eye-popping phrases appeared in a leaflet -- intended for distribution on windshields of vehicles in company parking lots -- illustrated with Scrubbers' logo: a cartoon of a car-washing buxom blonde.

    The Advertising Standards Agency, upholding a complaint from a member of the public who got the leaflet at home, said it was "likely to cause serious or widespread offence and was inappropriate to be viewed by children".

    It urged Scrubbers -- where "handjob" means a manual car wash -- to take more care when distributing its leaflets.

    Maureen Gallagher, from Scrubbers, disagreed with the ruling, saying "you could see a whole of a lot worse" on the upper racks of newsstands where adult magazines are displayed.

    "Some people are very small-minded and they can't take these things in fun, which is what the intention was."
