Bugger - second time I've typed this in. So I'll cut the crap and ask for help.

Over a pint or eight at lunch it occurred to me that London has been bombed by many an ******** over the years - Sinn Fein, IRA, PIRA (in their time), anarchists, Zeppelins, Luftwaffe, V1/2, Angry Brigade and I suspect others - including the new ********* on the block.

Many of the targets have been at or close to Monoploy sites, so what about such a thing on a T-Shirt but instead of the purchase price put the casualty count. Centre can be enlarged "Go to Hell, go directly to hell, do not waste oxygen, do not collect 72 virgins" card brandished by churchill/queen/john bull.

Advice on design (experts from election posters) and t-shirt limitations (I willll visit local chap for some gen), also any expert with EOD archive of our local bombers.

Just a general question for now, this topic will be hot enough to wera such a thing for a month or two yet.

Clue - monoploy sequence

8 Euston Road ................................... 28 Water Works
9 Pentonville Road ............................. 29 Piccadilly
10 In Jail & Just Visiting ...................... 30 Go To Jail
11 Pall Mall ........................................ 31 Regent Street
12 Electric Company .......................... 32 Oxford Street
13 Whitehall ...................................... 33 Community Chest - 3
14 Northumberland Avenue ................ 34 Bond Street
15 Marylebone Station ....................... 35 Liverpool St Station
16 Bow Street ................................... 36 Chance – 3
17 Community Chest - 2 .................... 37 Park Lane
18 Marlborough Street ....................... 38 Super Tax – Pay £100

Not sure it'd go down too well with many Londoners/relatives (I'm a bumpkin myself). I know that resilience is something to be proud of, but the t-shirt idea seems a bit insensitive.

Well, it wasn't meant to be insensitive - more showing defiance. However without better designer/ideas man than I appear to be it won't sell.

So bolleaux to it. Room 101 for that idea.

Would it have the monopoly board design on it cos that would be copyrighted wouldn't it ?
Like that would deter an ARRSE member lol !

I'm sure that Chavopoly would have been stopped by now if so...
