It’s a call to all patriots. Yes – that means you! The humble yo-yo is losing the battle to ‘virtual’ games. Say it loud and proud, “I’m old enough to remember the yo-yo!”

    Thanks :) He was originally going to be picking his nose, but I’m glad I found a more productive use for the protruding finger in the end!!

    who is the guy on the shirt??

  • It’s actually a take on a famous image used in World War I in England – it originally said ‘Your country needs you!’ (to join up for the army). It’s Lord Horatio Herbert Kitchener (to be precise :) ) – If you do a google image search on ‘your country needs you’ you’ll find that although the yo-yo might be original – the rest sadly isn’t! (I was pretty sure the original image was out of copyright :) )

    With some practice, you can do a lot of damage with a Yo-Yo actually :) Ever heard of Shaolin Yo-Yoing ?

  • That got me googling big time – yoyo self-defence is quite cool! – although I still haven’t found Shaolin using it – that would be incredible :)
