Australian Signs of the times

There is something about the plain speaking nature of Australia that sparks a smile. This sign is advertising quite inexpensive saw chain.
But I suspect that "Quite inexpensive Saw Chain" wouldn't have the same impact.
I am sure they meant "Bloody" in the Australian descriptive sense and not the literal, "Oops, this saw chain is sharp" sense.

OH! LOL! That was funny. Having lived in England for 3 years, this jumped out immediately at me and made me laugh.

I agree "Quite Inexpensive" just doesn't do the job...

Oh, geez, all I can think of is a movie called "Texas Chainsaw Massacre." I can just see some lunatic yelling: "We Bloody Massacre the Other Guy's Prices!" Maybe it's cheap because it's bloody...
