January daft link roundup - extra

Being a) old enough to remember Top Trumps when they first became popular, and b) having worked with some right bastards in my time, I just saw something on the B3TA board that made me choke on the tea I was drinking at the time...


Well, I laughed, a lot

I laughed too. Probably not as much as you...but I was a big Top Trumps fan. The new ones are rubbish.

They used to be 55p and now they're £4. Basards.

Sounds like the beginning of a new, inflation based deck to me

"I've got interest rates - up 16% this year"

"I've got tube tickets - up 14% this year"

"I've got gas - up 38% this year. I win!"

Ahh, I remember the days.

"Wing span on the B-52? Er.. 28 miles.

I win."

Stef said...

but seriously for a moment

The wingspan of a B-52 in Top Trumps was 56.4m but in the knock off Ace Trumps deck it was only 56m. What was that all about?

\ invincibly sad
