Land of Leather Suspends Share Trading


Chav-friendly sofa sellers Land of Leather have today announced the suspension of their shares pending an upcoming announcement on the future of the company.

A spokesman for the loss-making company said, "We are suspending trading for a period of 12 months, after which our shares will be available at half-price! Yes, half price! Double discount! You can order now, and benefit from 12-months interest and dividend-free!"

He added, "Buy now, and we'll throw in a free disfiguring rash at no extra cost!"

The announcement is expected to be the 37th 'Closing-Down Sale' for the retailer in the last two years.

They only seem to have employed about two people in each shop; they will find jobs in the new Tesco Express.
