A skip cap is like a baseball cap. That sign is from a pub in Greenock. Skip cap and joggies are the foundatins of "ned" fashion.
I should add...Ned (thank you wikipedia):Ned is a term applied to certain people in Scotland, akin to the term chav in England. The stereotypical view of a ned is a white adolescent male (although this term does not exclude females, the female equivalent is generally referred to as a Senga or Nedette), of working class background, who wear brand names (particularly Lacoste), gold jewellery (females often wear their name in large gold lettering), and engages in hooliganism, petty criminality, loutish behaviour, fighting, underage drinking and smoking or general anti-social behaviour. They are often assumed to be unemployed.
Neds... glad you cleared that up. Around here we call them, "those silly kids who don't know how to wear pants properly." And the End of The World. hey... I've been there. I thought, though, that it was right here where I live!
Glad you looked it up - saved my question.Not sure what we call them here but there was a bunch of them in the pub when I had lunch with my son on Tuesday. He called them a bunch of lads ... plus a few other things.I like the style of that sign about the barbed wire.
Nothing goes so well with Christmas than love. Enjoy both.xoxox
Signs of the times.
Neds don't wear Burberry then? Chavs wear Burberry. Did you get into the box tree?
words are a powerful thing! It is my sense that words should be considered before being spoken or written! Love seeing these. fun.
This was fun...some made me raise my eyebrow, though. hee.Hope you are doing well. Hugs!
I love looking for strange or funny signs when I'm out and about. These are fun! Love and light, Purest, to you and yours. Enjoy the best of the season. x
I enjoyed your post! I had been to several trips on places where signs are a subject of funny comments. Either they are weird or misplaced.. or whatever.^^
Some great signs here. I like the third one the best!
No chickadees here, all right. Plenty of blackbirds, though.Happy Holidays.
I love a good sign. I saw a great handwritten one the other day that a workman had put up to avoid being run over while working in a parking garage. It read:SlowMan WorkingLove it!
