Default Official 'Let's move the hyphen!' thread.

We sometimes get catalogues through the door advertising all sorts of rubbish. But the winter evenings can seem shorter by moving or adding hyphens.

Hours of fun for all the family!

Magnetic-knee brace. (Stops my legs sticking to fridges. You get the point.)
Solar-powered-garden lights.
Non-slip-ice carpet.
Easi-adjust-waist extensions.
2-way-shoe stretcher.
Waterproof-motion sensor-light.
Fleecy-wolf cape.
Self-warming-thermal-pet cushion.
Automatic-needle threader.
Professional-callous remover.
Large-talking watch.
Bionic-ear amplifier.
Giant-toenail clippers.
Effortless-lid opener.
Gel-toe pads.
5-in-1 kitchen-grater.
4-way-knee support.
Titanium-knee brace.
Fleecy-armchair covers.

Yes I'm bored.

Effortless lid opener? If it's effortless then how will it be able to do work ?

Vorrei imparare l'italiano. Forse un giorno.
