When I ordered a 42-INCH TV I wasn't expecting a DWARF TRANSVESTITE
BLACK FRIDAY MIX- UP HELL
EXCITED Liam Parker thought he had got the bargain of a lifetime when he bought a 42- inch TV on Black Friday for £ 120.
But when the doorbell rang the next day it wasn’t the state- of- the- art television the Middlesbrough plumber was expecting to receive.
Instead, staring up at him was a 42- inch- tall transvestite from Romania.
Liam, 45, said: “I saw the ad for a Raoul – a 42- inch TV – on a pop up advert while I was browsing the internet on Black Friday last year.
“I’d been after a big flatscreen for ages and it was so cheap – just £ 120 in your own home!
“I thought Raoul was a brand name. So I filled in the form and paid my money.
“When the doorbell rang the next day I was excited but it was a tiny wee bloke in a dress who said he was Raoul and I could do anything I wanted to him.
“He wasn’t even a good tranny – he had a beard and hairy legs.
“I phoned trading standards but they didn’t believe me so I thought I’d get my money’s worth and we did some hand stuff.
“But I’d rather have had a new telly, frankly.”
Raoul said: “I have never pretended to be a television.”
SHORT SHRIFT: Liam was less than happy with Raoul, the TV which turned up
SMALL PROBLEM: Liam thought he’d bought a big telly
