A news story submitted to us recently contained the phrase "commercial and domestic parcel consumers".
What exactly is a 'parcel consumer'? I can only assume it is someone or something that eats parcels. I am especially impressed that this can be done on a commercial basis...
(We changed the phrase to 'customers of parcels firms' or 'users of parcels services' - I forget which.)
