Grandma discovers hilarious X-rated detail on handbag
An Aussie woman was shopping on Myer’s website when she came across an unexpected find.
The Sydney grandmother was on the hunt for a handbag when she came across the store’s X-rated $19.95 Wild Fur You Australiana Tote Bag.
She decided to click on the native-theme print, but upon closer inspection, she realised the bag wasn’t as innocent as she originally thought.
The print showed native Aussie animals engaging in sexual activity.
“I am all for a cheeky joke, but I draw the line at this,” the grandmother told 7News. “Shocking!”
It appears the tote bag is “no longer available” on Myer’s website. They have a clutch version with the same controversial design for $10, however it too appears to be just as popular with an “out of stock” message on the product.
“Rock this daring clutch illustrated by Lilly Perrott and cause a scene,” the description reads.
Despite it being too risqué for some, others seem to love it as the website features glowing reviews.View this post on Instagram

“Great gift, you may even snag one for yourself,” one person wrote, adding that the bag is of “good quality”, “large and uniquely Australian”.
Another said the purse has a “durable quality to the zipper”.
“The print is certainly hilarious and went famously well when given to a friend who likes telling green jokes,” the person continued.
“Unexpectedly raunchy but completely hilarious! Bought this to post to a friend in the US and definitely got more than I bargained for!” a third person added.
The creators behind the design are Aussie brand La La Land, which sells a range of items including bags, reusable mugs and tea towels in the “Wild Fur You” print.
“A best-selling cheeky Australian themed illustration by our talented in-house artist at La La Land, Lilly Perrott,” La La Land’s website reads.
“A perfect adult gift to stand against the ordinary.”
If you’re keen to get your hands on the now sold-out tote and clutch items on the Myer website, the original makers still have plenty options available via its own site.
