In the movies, newspaper offices are like Christmas: there are gifts everywhere. I get a few deliveries a week, 99% of which are from my mother. The most recent was my raincoat, which was followed by a text message, 30 minutes later, going: “I am awaiting thanks.” Thanks, ma. The other 1% are ill-advised purchases from Asos – because, really, who needs 10 pairs of harem trousers? No one, that’s who.

This week, it was a collection of interesting gifts that I am now going to bestow upon you, my (6) loyal readers. St Sin is a product that was seven years in the making – and the aim of said product is to, ahem, neutralise your bad breath, should such an affliction ever affect you. (No, I have no idea why they were sent to me either. Perhaps my mother tipped them off about my love of cigarettes, alcohol and garlic. Surely not.)

In any case - I have two sets of St Sin products to give away. St Sin 1 neutralises alcohol, by way of one cherry-flavoured sweet. (I could never consume said product as I hate cherries and, eh, don’t drink . . .) St Sin 2 neutralises garlic breath, and is orange-flavoured (delish). St Sin 3 is for the dreaded tobacco breath (I wouldn’t know, honest) and is cola-flavoured.

So all you have to do (and, really, this is a great competition because everybody loves garlic, and I’m sure you all know at least one person who drinks or smokes too much, or both) is to answer the following question: “I have really bad breath in the morning” is from which (vaguely) fashionable film? I could give you a hint, as that is almost impossible, but … I won’t.
