At the supermarket I saw a man with a greenish complexion in the bakery department. He also has a hospital patient band on. He touched some bread in one of the open bread baskets.

Should I have told someone? I didn't as I didn't think it was my business and would be rude but I would t want to eat that bread.

It wouldn't be Waitrose....

In truth it'd put me off if I saw anyone touch the bread (especially Viva 's bogey fingers man...bleurgh)

But everyone who buys uncovered bread like that pays their money and takes their chances.

I came here to post that it's not easy being green but I got beaten to it.
Must spend less time on mumsnet!

So, what sort of disposition did he have?

Did he appear quite cheery and generally pleased with life?
In which case I think you have spotted the Jolly Green Giant.

If, however he seemed somewhat distressed by matters, then I think you have, indeed, come across the Incredible Hulk.

I think the existance of a hospital wrist band on either would be quite appropriate.

If he was particularly small, he was probably a poisonous dwarf.

This has really made me laugh on a bad day, thanks.

"what ever you do dont make him angry, you wouldn't like him when he's angry"

Unless he really is the Jolly Green Giant, in which case it is a major melt down ...loads of tissues and emotional support.

OMW...I'm not trying to imply that the JGG is in any way anything other than what you would expect from a large green man.

Maybe he was a hungry extra from some Zombie film/tv series. They're so common now that wherever you are in the uk, a zombie flick/tv show is being made within a 20 miles radius...
