howies tee of the week

Win this weeks super-exclusive howies tee of the week.

You know the score, you can win this lovely-one-off tee by answering a simple question.

For over a decade the economy just grew and grew.

All along Gordon took the credit for being a safe pair of hands.

But turns out that we were building on sand.

So credit where credit is due prime minister, here’s your own howies T-shirt.

This weeks question: Remember the band Jilted John? Well they had a song I think it was called “Gordon is a moron”…now the question is what is the name of John’s girlfriend in the song? There’s a clue on my blog.

Remember last week’s tee…the banana:

Well we had some great entries, you simply had to tell us why you like bananas, heres some of them:

“I love writing on bananas feels like you’re tattooing something. The skin is softer than any canvas and after a couple days the areas you write or draw on tun that brown color and draw out the ink making it look like it was just bruised that way. “

“As a small child I was afraid of bananas. The yellow skin, the bruises I could live with but what really got to me was the stringy interior. It always reminded me of one awful Christmas when my eldest brother, David, whilst eating a banana, blew his nose (he had been suffering from an awful cold for weeks) and on removing the tissue from his nose he didn’t notice the long, dangly snot that ran, like a rope bridge, from his hand along the length of arm deep into the cavity of his nose. As I recoiled in horror, utterly shocked and sickened from the scene in front of me, my brother, calmly, just sniffed it up in one movement, sending the tissue tethered end back to his nose at great speed. Repacking all the banana yellow goo into one small defined nostril.”

“I like the banana because it is the quietest of all fruit.

The apple is a crunchy, yet deafening 3.4db

Even the humble grape, while prone to bouts of silent brooding, is – for something so small and green – exceptionally loud when chewed.
Even more so when forcibly removed from it’s stalk.

Even the orange, tangerine or clementine – which most would
(mistakenly) think were from the whispering citrus section of their local supermarket, emit a peace-shattering 2.1db when their peel is torn. Not to mention the ensuing ruckus when a seemingly laser-guided jet of citric acid infused juice squirts in your eye during peeling.”

But the winner had to be Chris Braines from Devon who sent a great story about dressing up as a banana.
