The new Rockall map t-shirtCash'n'Carrion UK satire outfit The Rockall Times recently celebrated its third birthday, and the North Atlantic ne'er-do-wells have released a new version of their popular Map t-shirt to commemorate the event. Here's what they have to say:

If you've ever wondered about the exact location of the world's most isolated islet, then satisfy your lust for co-ordinates while planting a flag in the international satire map with our magnificent cartographical apparel. Printed on a top-notch 100 per cent cotton shirt, this handy reference will prove invaluable during short weekend breaks to the North Atlantic's liveliest outcrop, and will certainly provide metropolitan dinner parties with a topic of discussion other than the UK housing market - and you can't say fairer than that. £12.76 (£14.99 inc VAT). Get 'em while stocks last.

We just need to add that the shirt is available in the usual range of sizes from medium to XXL, and that the Rockall Times' range now encompasses no less than five different shirts - including the highly topical "Smoking leads to heroin addiction, paedophilia and suicide bombing". Enough said. ®
