More Thoughts On Ikea

Regular readers will know that Ikea is not my favourite shop. Some time ago I had to visit there a lot, but recently I've managed to avoid it. However, the other day I came across the startling statistic that "1 in 10 Europeans is allegedly conceived in an Ikea bed"!

Last year 33 million people visited one of their stores, of which there are 179 in 23 countries. Ikea is the MacDonalds of the furniture world. It's like a virulent cancer metastasising around Europe. However, as you can see from this BBC article, some people have been brainwashed into believing that they actually enjoy shopping there!
