It was there to explode green ink on the suit so that it would be apparent that you had stolen it.
So... what to do having caused a green ink explosion on my nice new suit?
But what if they arrested me for stealing a suit? Even though I had a receipt, maybe they would think I had cunningly bought a second suit so that I could return the first, stolen, suit and get me some free money. I was definitely going to be arrested.
There was only one possible solution.
I was going to have to dye my nice new cream linen suit with a green dye so that the whole thing would match. This was the only way I could salvage the whole terrible situation.
And to prove that I am not a childish, immature idiot, here is a picture of my good friend Richard (of Rich and Sian fame, they who supplied me with the photos in this blog post)
