My life has been empty and without meaning since Sarah left me and took the kids with her. I filled my days since that woeful night by watching my boxed sets of The Thick of It, the Day Today, and my pirated CDs of that Radio 4 programme he does. It made life just a little more bearable, though not all that bearable because my wife and kids had still left me and taken all the money from our joint account.

After six months the electricity was cut off, and I couldn't watch any more cutting-edge satire. Luckily, I still had the Armando Iannuci Long Handled Shopping Bag that I'd bought Sarah for our ten-year anniversary. She'd unwrapped it, put it in the back of a cupboard and never used it, looked at it or spoken of it again, presumably so as not to expose the picture to sunlight and fade the image thereupon. She treasured that bag at the back of the cupboard.

Well, I thought. If she's going off with the kids and some Iceland Manager from Brent, I'm going to use her precious bag. I popped down to WHSmiths and stocked up on the day's newspapers, determined to provide the satire that NPower were no longer willing to allow my DVD collection to provide.

The newspapers all fit snugly within, and when I returned home I found that the bag was perfect for propping against a half-drunk bottle of Kia Ora and perusing the newspapers with. It was like Armando was there, offering his own unique take on the day's events.

"Oh, bag-Armando," I'd say. "What do you think of this pasty tax business?"

"Well," he'd squeak in response. "If only it was a prat-sy tax, we could tax all the MPs!"

I love bag-Armando now. He sleeps in my bed, where Sarah once lay. He takes up far less room, and he's a lot more receptive to my romantic needs.

2.0 out of 5 stars Is this available with short handles? 28 Jun 2012
By Montee
disappointed that there only appears to be a long handle version available. Due to deep-seated psychological issues, I don't like the things that I'm carrying to be too far away from my elbows.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sounds Terrible 6 April 2012
By TeeKay
Sounds really bad. Just awful. All I'm getting is static and crackling and I think it's completely ruined the stylus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Misleading 7 April 2012
The product description states that this item has a capacity of 10 litres, however I have to report that when tested it only held 2 litres while the remaining 8 litres leaked right through. The purported dimensions of 42x38 cm are likewise inaccurate, the actual size being 42x32 yards. For these reasons I have knocked 1 star off my review.

Having bought the Armando Ianuuci Long Handled Shopping Bag in good faith I was disappointed to find it had a picture of Armando Ianucci on the front.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing. 6 April 2012
By Enzyme
There is no USB port on this bag. In this day and age, that's a pretty basic omission.
I blame the BBC.

1.0 out of 5 stars Punched in the sac 6 April 2012
I carried this bag through the streets of Glasgow and was immediately attacked. For personal safety, I recommend carrying this product in the Christopher Morris rucksack.

3.0 out of 5 stars Functional, but picture is misleading 5 April 2012
I bought this bag for a friend who had requested a shopping bag with a picture of Armando Iannucci on it for her birthday. However, on receipt, the material was different than pictured and the photograph was of Peter Baynham and Stewart Lee holding hands. NOT what I asked for. It does function very well for carrying shopping and for engaging wispy-bearded thirty-somethings in conversation about The Saturday Night Armistice.
