A proper HTFU wristband


You may have seen hipster types out there with little rubber wristbands with some sort of gay “life” statement or something. Apparently these are meant to show your support for some cause or another…that you are “doing” something meaningful.

Hipsters also like bits of colours string and other ratty accoutrements as well.


What proper blokes need is a real hard core HTFU wristband. 

One that say that you are in command, can ook after yourself and won;t take any nonsense.

I’ve found just such a thing.

  • Sorry to sound thick but what does HTFU mean? and why would someone want to wear a wristband

      Help the friendly unicorns. But anybody who was really capable of helping the friendly unicorns wouldn’t need a wrist band to prove it…

      HTFU – Harden The Fuck Up. Good point you can imagine what I was going to say to our closet Gay Socialist about wearing Gay bracelets, but I have to say having a look at it, it is not a bad bit of survival kit. Rope, flint, knife/striker.

        And then you go through airport security and…. 15 hours later ;)

        • Mr_Blobby

          Do you truly believe a bunch of unemployable muppets searching passengers is going to achieve anything, except put airfares up and inconvenience the traveling public.

          How many terrorist plots have they prevented and at what cost.

          • Sym Gardiner

            Those “unemployable muppets” need to find something to do. And if you walk through one of those metal detectors with a knife, I’m suggesting you might provide them their entertainment. Of course all power to you if you want to do this. Just make sure you let them know that you think they are “unemployable muppets”. I’m sure things will go well for you.

          • Mr_Blobby

            I did. I travel internationally reasonably frequently and now wear a loose fitting shirt that I don’t tuck in. Last time they wanted to pat me down I started to take my shirt off. The stupid unemployable Muppet backed off real quick.

            In the US were it is even more invasive I have heard of people wearing their swimsuits into the airport and getting dressed after the security check.

            The reality is that it does not achieve anything except provide employment for Muppets. The security component of your air ticket price is rising all the time, soon it will cost more than the flight itself.

            So how much has all the extra security cost, that makes me feel less safe, and what have they actually prevented apart from people having to surrender there water and pay an arm and a leg airside to replace it. The traveling public is no safer.

            If there were 2 options to fly one with security and a cheaper one with no security I and most of the flying public would go with option 2.

    Just the thing for the redneck polly (one of Winston’s idiot mates) to wear on the plane in case the blacks and gays take over the airport while he’s flying home from Queensland.

    Actually just come back from meeting in city, saw some youths wearing these things. They probably would have look better in handcuffs.

    • Mr_Blobby

      Hope you left your work boots at the door.

      • cows4me

        Of course, always do when sponging for money.

        • Mr_Blobby

          Thought you cockys were rich, what do you need to sponge money for.

          • cows4me

            Not for me Blobby, for our tourist attraction.

          • Dave
