May 27, 2005
Spread the word far and wide, we’re having a competition here this weekend. The aim is to come up with the tag line for a bumper sticker which perfectly describes your (or our) view of the European Union. What we’re looking for is, if possible, something as good as the one "windowlicker" dorpped into a comments section over at The Daily Ablution concerning the more extreme Greens:
"Imagine a Birkenstock stamping on a human face. Forever."
That’s the sort of thing, literate, apposite and insulting.
NRVLaw started this all off this morning by offering via email the following:
"The EU: Stalinism with a softer bootheel,"
A couple of mild attempts from me:
"The EU, Straight Bananas since 1992."
"EU can check out any time you want but EU can’t leave."
Obviously I need more caffeine at this time of day. Drop your attempts in the comments and we’ll declare a winner on Monday, along with the traditional award of geek points, a secret masonic handshake and a virtual party with lashings of ginger beer.
Update: Added to the OTB Caption Jam.

"Honk if EU are regulated!"
"They kid EU not!"
"You wont hear me EUlogize."
"No EUse talking sense"
"EU ain't heard nothin' yet, folks."
plus the obvious: EUnuchs or EUthanasia, or
"Will EU, won't EU, will EU, won't EU, will EU join the dance?"
