Our vacuum sucks!

The vacuum that my housemates and I use (mostly me (well, ALWAYS me actually))is an Electrolux and must be decades old, well okay then, at least 20 years old. I was using it earlier this week and read (out of vacuuming boredom) some of the things that were written on it – i.e. maker's name – Electrolux, vacuum model – its an Elite! An oxymoron? I think so, anyway I digress.
Upon the vacuum was a sticker that Electrolux obviously thought to be clever and all pun–ny – 20 years ago maybe but not in 2005:


Oh dear!
