Hello Sailor! Wanna buy a used sari?

This pic with no details (as usual!) appeared on Harris Hulugallas Lanka Chronicle (see link below pic).
For some time the economy worldwide has been sliding into a recession (whatever that means!) Times are hard and businesses are adopting more aggressive, and frankly underhand, sales techniques whatever they are trying to sell.
Recent returnees to Srilanka may have noticed that the Bataleeya Cadju Girls (on the Colombo-Kandy road) are getting "tartier" and aggressive by the minute.
(Our use of the word "Tart" is of course the slang definition and has nothing whatsoever to do with a fruit filled pastry pie.)
Our own view is that this particular girl is a Used Sari Salesperson.
We stand to be corrected of course!
Suggestions on a postcard please!
