    "Great read every day. Makes me smile as Rab muses about music and his irreverent views on the EU. Tune in, you won't be disappointed."

    "Excellent 'Blog' which can be controversial at times, while maintaining it's humour. Keep it up Big Rab!"

    "Updated every day with doses of good humour, political satire, a running commentary on the progress of author's home football team and his life."

    "Pure brilliant, so it is - I never miss it, though God knows, I've tried."

    "An inspiration to start my own blog"

    "For dipping into it's better than pakora sauce"

    "Anyone who doesn't like the EU and has a soft spot for Albion Rovers can't be all bad"

    "Facile and False"

    "Populist,puerile and prosaic"

    "Utter pish! Keep it up, I love it!"

    "People may also find the Ben Lomond Free Press blog illuminating, interesting and/or amusing. It’s not mentalist as such but familiar themes emerge. I particularly like accounts of encounters with strange elementals (of course! ELEmentals!) from elfin safety. And the fact that the blog is run by someone who plays in a blues band called Harmonica Lewinsky."

We love a joke!

In a post a couple of years ago I joshed that the mascot for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow might be Mungo, the shit faced octopus.


Now some jokers have come up with something even funnier. Meet “Thistle man Clyde”

Such fun brightens my day.

What’s that you say?

This isn’t a joke it’s the REAL MASCOT?

Och! away with you!

You’re pulling my leg……………….

  1. He looks like an amalgam of several muppets.

  2. Its a wonder he is not carrying atartan shortbread tin.
    Why do we always make an arse of it ?????

  3. He looks like Bertie Basset!
    It’s actually not bad since a 12 year old girl came up with the design.
    It’s a hell of a lot better than Wenlock and Mandeville were.

  4. That looks like something growing near my garden.

  5. The Day of the Triffids.

    Jenifer – I hope you’ve got some weedkiller.

  6. I was shocked to see Clyde announced on the same day as my Wee Willie design (which was actually created in January, 2010). It blew my mind. But, I suppose there’s room for two of the Thistle Clan to stand for something.
