My friends son is going to have his sixth birthday next week and when I had asked him what he wanted he had told me he wanted a toy gun. Naturally, me being me, I had a plan to get him the baddest, meanest and bestest toy gun there is. I'm talking Tony Montana's "Little Friend", I'm talking Rambo here. Little did I know that legislation recently passed in the United Kingdom bans the import, sale and even a sniff of anything that looks like a toy gun. Fair enough, but I thought this was all a bit ironic from a country which is responsible for the rape, pillage and occupation of almost two thirds of the worlds land mass and complicity in the deaths of over 1 million Iraqis. Funny isn't it? So Happy Birthday Yousef! Hope you like the spiderman pencil case I'm going to get you.
