I'd buy ten of them for a pound!

Collect them all! I especially enjoy the one dedicated to men with pasty white legs wearing shorts with dress shoes and black socks.

Also, no B for Beatles? James Bond could have been moved to J to replace the generic "Jubilee."

M for Mackintosh? OK, I guess, but Monty Python would have been my choice

And, of course, I should be for Imperialism instead of Ice Cream Cone.

LordOfThePings: [img.fark.net image 811x492]


My faves are Chocolate Globbernaughts, and Rooty Tooty Point And Shooty.

I use the first one as often as I can in company.

Just wait until Trump decides to be on some coins. He's gonna be mad current presidents aren't allowed on US money, but he'll find some back-alley way to get it done. Then he'll ask Congress to change the law to allow "TRUMP" to be placed somewhere on our coins/currency.

That would have made a lot more sense than claiming that the WWW was invented in Britain.  (So CERN and the Xerox PARC are now part of GB?).

My choice for W would have been knee-high rubber gardening boots.  "Wellies" are both indispensable and ubiquitous.

I suspect that is because Tim Berners-Lee is British.
