Send Gordon your Shirt campaign

Forty seven emails received at by 9am this morning confirming despatch of old shirts to Gordon yesterday. You can either sit there and whinge or protest

Right, i am doing some sweaty work today. When I have finished, I will send that shirt straight off of my back direct to the thieving bastard.

Would including a few grains of powder from a banger or SG cartridge trigger their explosives sniffers?

1940's, 50's, 60's and 70's !

First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us and lived in houses made of asbestos.
They took aspirin, ate blue cheese, raw egg products, loads of bacon and processed meat, tuna from a can

Then after that trauma, our baby cots were covered with bright colored lead-based paints.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets or shoes

As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags..

We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle.

Take away food was limited to fish and chips, no pizza shops, McDonalds, KFC, Subway or Nandos.

Even though all the shops closed at 6.00pm and didn't open on the weekends, somehow we didn't starve to death!

We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE actually died from this.

We could collect old drink bottles and cash them in at the corner store and buy Toffees, Gobstoppers, Bubble Gum and some bangers to blow up frogs with.

We ate cupcakes, white bread and real butter and drank soft drinks with sugar in it, but we weren't overweight because......


We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.

No one was able to reach us all day. And we were O.K.??

We would spend hours building our go-carts out of old prams and then ride down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. We built tree houses and dens and played in river beds with matchbox cars.

We did not have Playstations, Nintendo Wii, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 999 channels on SKY,
No video/DVD films,
No mobile phones, no personal computers, no Internet or Internet chat rooms...........WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no
Lawsuits from these accidents.

Only girls had pierced ears!


We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.

You could only buy Easter Eggs and Hot Cross Buns at Easter time...

We were given air guns and catapults for our 10th birthdays,

We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just yelled for them!

Mum didn't have to go to work to help dad make ends meet!

RUGBY and CRICKET had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment.

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of.
They actually sided with the law!

Our parents didn't invent stupid names for their kids like 'Kiora' and 'Blade' and 'Ridge' and 'Vanilla'

We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned HOW TO

And YOU are one of them!

You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated our lives for our own good.

And while you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know how brave their parents were.

Have joined the campaign SEND BROWN-A-SHIRT

Yvette's Balls, my kids wouldn't be interested unless they could watch it being read out on YouTube with loads of swearing and gratuitous bloodshed.

No bother, Brown will do it for you. Or use it as a table cloth when eating his bogies. I will post when mine has been sent.

David Davis said...

DON'T send a shirt:

DON'T send anything at all, handled by you...

They will take your DNA frommit (vomit) and you'll be "on the database".

David Davis said...

Certainly NOT with your shit or your bogies on it - even worse than sending it totally unwashed.

Man in the Street said...

David Davis - I thought this and have just put them in the washing machine on the monthly maintenance 95 degree wash. Not sure whether this will get rid of anything but it feels satisfying.

Have put a link to the 'Shirt Campaign' on my blog. Unfortunately, as I'm clueless about blogging, I had to put the whole link http: etc instead of a 'Here' with the address behind it. Also directed straight to Liberterian site - sorry OH. So much to learn, so little time!

Yvette Balls - great post - those were the days! I feel sorry for children today.
