Haven’t listened to New Forms in years but took it out recently and remebered that the CD always looks like a cartoon character who just got a kick in the nuts.

Which reminds me, the icon on power buttons, always look like an icon for someone giving the finger.

So remember, next time you go to turn something off, it’s giving you the finger!

    to be honest, I always saw that icon as a lot dirtier than giving the finger.

    heh, I can hear the little squeaky helium voice dying out into nothing, ‘FUCKYOUfuckyoufuckaghghghhg…’

    I think Xbox’s impression comes from Catholic sex education and how priests demonstrated through dirty finger signs that men’s bits were made for ladies’ bits alone.

    John how busy are you at the moment? I have a giant favour to ask on behalf of breastfeeding (she said, dramatically). I need a wee bit of help with the Friends of Breasteeding blog (www.friendsofbreastfeeding.ie), it’s too blue. Will you mail me if you could purple it up for me? No worried if not. I’ll still share my crunchie maltesers with you.

    Xbox – yeah, you would!

    Jo – insanely busy! But I like to contribute to a good cause. Do you just mean make the blue links purple? I’ll send you a mail tomorrow – sleepietime.
