So after a couple of dates with my new machine I decided to do a bit of internet stalking to find out if she was as perfect as she was making out. Turns out she is a bit of a wacko. I thought the funny snake tatt embossed on her body carried a certain retro charm – a relic from a long forgotten tour as a groupy with a heavy metal band or perhaps a souvenir from a stint in the special forces. But no – its something much less wholesome. What my anglocentric blinkers led me to believe was a heroic Serpent being slain by the sword of St George is in fact a traditional Italian symbol of a snake eating a baby.
Is it just me or is that a weird thing to put on a coffee machine?
