Male Model *

While looking up the internet for Brylcreem's web site today (it's a long story, don't ask), I came across the fact that the model used to promote this product during World War II was anarchist and pacifist (i.e. refused to fight fascism)Tony Gibson. Read all about it here.

Funny what you find out from the never-fails-to-amaze-me internet.

Just because Tony Gibson was an admirable man and an intellectual anarchist to boot, doesn't mean to say that Brylcreem will turn you into this sort of guy! Besides I am not sure that JJ will want to touch your barnet when it is all greasy like a bag of chips with extra lard.

Moo - really sad, but Brylcreem sponsored some crappy "most fashionable fans in England" thingy and I wanted to see where Millwall were. As I said, sad ...

Marc - talking about sad, that is pathetic!

YP - I'm not sure that she'll want to touch any part of me as, since I saw her on Monday night, I've been eating far too many chips. Our Edinburgh trip is looking like a salad nightmare for me!
