Two trainees at an Edinburgh firm have launched a new venture delivering junk food, fizzy drinks and hugs to hungover Scots.

The pair have set up a Facebook account which already has more than 6,000 likes. Any readers in Edinburgh who got as tight as an owl last night and are reading this through bloodshot eyes can call 07810 537792, and whatever they desire - smokes, McDonalds, Irn Bru - will wing its way to them for just a £5 delivery charge. Apparently the drivers will give hugs to those who request it, and they "don't provide sh*t chat, something we know you could do without when you're hungover".

Sadly the service is currently only available at weekends. Although given the parlous state of the Scottish legal market, the pair may soon find themselves earning more than they get for the day job.

The young entrepreneurs are currently unidentified as they don't want their firm to find out, the Scotsman reports.

This is a blatant rip off of a service set up in Glasgow...

I could use that type of service today... I'm sat at my desk hanging out of my arse!

Couldn't agree more. It's just copying the Glasgow service, which has taken on about 10 extra staff to cope with demand it was so successful on launch last weekend.

Surely the real story is that they've both completed their 4 year degree, 1 year diploma and at least 9 months of a training contract by the age of 19...I don't remember seeing a pair of 13 year olds during Freshers' Week.

Surely these boys know that anyone can find out who the directors of their company listed on their facebook page are...
