From The Herald Diary Today

The charity Sciaf, (Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund), distributed little cardboard containers called the WEE BOX encouraging folk to give up a favourite item for Lent, and to put in the box the money they would have spent. Pop Idol winner from Glasgow, Michelle McManus  gave up crisps.

However, one Diary reader in Stirling simply felt-tipped on an additional S and R on the cardboard receptacle to make it SWEER BOX, left it on his office desk and within days his colleagues had filled it to bursting. As he tells us: "Well, we were in the middle of an office flitting, and things got rather fraught."
