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.

Cheap

“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
