Have a nice Che

Have a nice Che.

Most of a certain age will remember the iconic image of Che Guevara that adorned almost every wall and garment back in the late 1960s. I even revived it on one of my regular wesbsites a few years back as a parody featuring Margaret Thatcher.

Now comes a new spoof for the icon-icon generation as everyone's favourite revolutionary takes on the face of smiley culture. Sadly, the telltale beret has dissolved into it's own silloette and I suspect that most of those buying this particular t-shirt will probably have little clue as to the origin of what they are wearing.

Infact, looking at it as I write, it begins to remind me more of the character in "V for Vendetta". So much for that!
