3.
a member of a radical, warlike, ardently patriotic group of peaceseeking fairweather 'soccer' fans in Clontarf, particularly prominent from a.d. 2010 to 2010, advocating the violent overthrow of plastic African horns and vigorously resisting the efforts of the Romans and their supporters to heathenise the Jews.

Well that's my word of the day anyway. Off to find ways to use it.

It came to me on the walk to work. I couldn't blog quickly enough.

I hadn't. My Culch days, both writing and reading, are in the past.

Nicely photoshopped, that.

Nicely done!

Holy cow, someone got creative here - both with words and colours :)

geez and here I was thinking 'vuvuzealot' was a cheeky new white wine varietal!

Radge said...

There I was, deciding not to change a thing, when I came across this.

It's growing on me. Still has the darkness required and says still says Radge to me. Maybe a slightly sharper Radge.

In the cockarsebollocks world of advertising they call this 'brand evolution (not revolution)'.

Are you going to issue a brand positioning statement to go with this?

Radge said...

That sounds the very opposite of something I would do, Holemaster, and very like something I'd write an angry post about if I could get my head around it.

I'm pretty happy with the new clothes. Thought about a wholesale change but Therese talked me down, bless her.
