Times pledges allegiance to Web 2.0

Virtual fridge magnet exercise in democracy

Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

The Times has exercised its democratic right to come over all Web 2.0 and launched a rather silly British pledge of allegiance fridge magnet challenge.

It's pretty simple: you're provided with a range of vocab and some decidedly dodgy pics and invited to knock together your own pledge which swan-roasting immigrants will be required at Taserpoint to repeat before being allowed access to the UK's world-class benefits system.

Well, we decided to give it a go and, despite a decided lack in the "the" department (sort it out lads, for gawd's sake), were able to come up with the following:

Our own fridge magnet pledge of allegiance

Of course, the possibilities are limited by the Times' pinko liberal sensibilities which do not allow it to offer "hoodie", "dole scrounger", "shoplifting single mother", "happyslap", "collapse" and "civilisation". We gather the Daily Mail is working on its own fridge magnet offering which will allow Middle England to formulate a pledge of allegiance better reflecting the modern values of this Scepter'd Isle. ®
