I Won’t Dignify That With A Response

I had to share this range of paints from Cannon Et Ball. Could there be a more appropriate paint range for a lover of puns such as  me?

The colours include “Of No Moral Value,” “Easy to apply with a brush”, or “Difficult to explain in words”. Brilliant!

My personal favourite has to be “..though they did have a pile of sausage rolls,” but “I won’t dignify that with a response,” is a close second.

The paints are made by Colour Makes People Happy – their shop looks very jaunty:

Thanks to the always-on-the-money Home Shopping Spy for the tip-off!



I’m Claire and I live near Glasgow, in Scotland. I have strong family ties to Cincinnati, too and regard it as my second home. If I had to describe myself in five words, it would be thus: Does. Not. Suffer. Fools. Gladly. I’ve been cross stitching pretty much all my life, but professionally since 2005, first as Miso Funky, then as The Bellwether and now under my own name. I'm known for my witty, sarcastic and occasionally profane typographic designs. My work has been featured in The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Channel 4 and on BBC television as well as numerous media outlets across the globe. At one point, I was kind of a big deal but I mostly just dabble in it these days when I have time. My website is a repositry of cross stitch charts, travel and food blogging and you'll find it at I also love to travel and eat, ideally travelling somewhere great to eat something brilliant. I'm fascinated by social history, particularly the Victorians and will absolutely beat you hands down in a quiz about the Tudors. Dogs are LIFE. I like being in water and have lots of ideas that will never see the light of day but would definitely be a winner on Dragon’s Den/Shark Tank. I love to give people gifts. I! also! overuse! exclamation! marks! sorry!
