man in a t shirt

Walking down Westbourne Grove - an artery of the vile cool that is West London - I pass a man in a t-shirt advertising a brand of dog food (the t-shirt, not the man). He has no dog - not with him at any rate - and his other clothes don't suggest one who needs to raid the jumble or the bins - known brands without being ostentatious or expensive. Now that makes me wonder. It doesn't amuse or trouble me but it does make me wonder.

    hmmmm...

    Not connected but... I walked past a heavily pregnant woman in Tesco the other day and she was wearing a t-shirt that had, emblazoned on the front "It started with a kiss".

    Made me smile.

    What worries me, and believe me I am worried, is that in a world where one's choice of clothes is determined by a man named 'George' who lurks amongst the frozen peas at ASDA we will soon all be sporting Wal-Mart t-shirts.

    Was he the sort of batchelor from the ads who sniffs the dog food as though its a fine wine before offering it to Spiffy the Lapdog?

    why does the orang look like a banana split, oh dweller in the sump?

    heh, kingcod. Have you heard about the subtle but nevertheless brewing battle between George and Florence& Fred?

    Rumour has it that if F&F come out victorious we'll all be decked in blue and white stripes.

    It's a conspiracy.

    My money's on the side with the girl on it. Hmm - hadn't thought that George might be a girl.
    Decking people in blue and white stripes does legally constitute an assault

    Actually SW, I think decking people full stop is generally considered as assault :)

    you mean it doesn't matter what you wear when you do it? what kind of legal system is that??? see Guantanamo post above - oh yeah, you did.

    in answer to SWs query about my picture .... your cultural reference is a little off the mark. A prize awaits the correct identification of my diminutive creature. Orang he is not - you are far, far away.

    well the ewok reference to it on your linderee site is a bit of a hint. incidentally I tried to link to other sites stating the interest: 'pushing the bounds of reason in an age of raisins' (or was it vice versa?)didn't come up with anything - 'No Match' as the computer would flash if this were an episode (an oddly bloodless episode I must admit) of CSI. You'da thought someone...For my prize can I please have French Maid Barbie as seen on Dr Violet Socks' quite awesome site; and an irony bypass please.

    Well I think kingcod's pic looks like a bedecked garden gnome...

    or could it be undercover jungle barbie?

    Nah. It takes up too much space.

    Besides, it can stand up (seemingly) unaided.

    I'm glad I didn't say that - she's mean and you can't see her coming.

    If you live in a jungle.
