Tight-Ass special

Before you all get too excited – it’s not what it seems. The term in fact refers to what might otherwise be known as ‘tight-fisted’. Normally even ‘tight-fisted’ would not be deemed appropriate for a marketing campaign – eg – ‘Tight Fisted Special – only $10’

HOWEVER – this is Australia, and they say what they mean here- usually along with a bit of swearing, so I was not surprised to see this special offer in the window of a fish and chip shop..

Tight Ass - Tuesday and Wednesday - Fish, Chips and Drink $9.99
