A Glaswegian club promoter who hosted a "Yer Da Sells Avon" tour across Scotland has found himself in trouble from the beauty brand. We hope you understand our concerns and we are sure your events will still be a success. Paul spoke to us out regarding the letter saying: "I just laughed when I read the letter, was shocked they even found out about our tour. Spoke with our designer and we haven't even used their logo it's similar so don't plan on changing anything. When asked if Paul was planning on taking up Avon on their offer to be a representative he said: "As generous as the offer was to become a rep I don't think it would be fair on my children.

There is something unique about the Scottish language when it comes to insults.
Much like fellow Scots wordsmiths Robert Burns and Irvine Welsh before him, Twitter user cannyswim inducted himself into the Scottish culture hall of fame when he posted the above on 22 nd June With The Scots language has been spoken in Scotland for centuries and still exists across the country today. In it was officially recognised under the European Charter for Minority Languages. The unique status of Scots means that generations of Scottish children have been brought up to use formal English in school and public life, even though it might not be their first language, or the one spoken at home.
A club promoter found himself on the receiving end of a stern email from Avon, after he planned a tour and named it 'Yer Da Sells Avon'. For anybody not in the know 'yer da sells Avon' is, as Urban Dictionary puts it : "The peak, the maximum, the be-all and end-all of humiliation. The ultimate insult of one's self, one's family and one's dignity. Consider all hope lost in your life if this is said to you and use sparingly against enemies. The letter forbids the promoter from using the name, claiming it would be damaging to the company's brand image as it mocks 'the hardwork and dedication' of male Avon salesmen. But talking to LADbible Paul Zitkus, from Glasgow, said he felt the women's makeup brand needed to liven up about his use of their brand-name for the tour, adding that the DJ is Gary Glitcher who made the hit song 'Yer Da Sells Avon' would be playing at the event. He told us: "When I received the letter I just laughed because it's mental how it even reached them about our tour in Scotland. Our events have been running for over 2 years now and we have sold out shows in Scotland, Ireland and Ibiza. Credit: Paul Zitkus. He said he remained committed to the design of the flyers as it currently stands, adding he 'technically wasn't using their logo' so he 'probably wouldn't be changing it'.
