A shocking rate of inflation

You never quite know what will come up in conversation, although with the accounting community you can guess it will involve numbers or something sexual. One conversation recently involved both.
There TS was, chatting happily away with interactiveworld CFO Andy Fletcher when out of the blue he says, ‘Do you know how many blow-up dolls we sell?’
Interactive used to be part of the old Sunday Sport stable, still part owned by David Sullivan and connected, in some way, to shops that sell unmentionables like, er, blow-up dolls.
TS didn’t know but guessed the figures might be inflated. Then Andy revealed it was 26,000 ­ or around 200 each year for each shop.
