Did we fool you then?

Well I think I can quite safely say we at TBHL have been suprised and shocked by the overwhelming response we've had from the article we posted yesterday.

Yes it was an April Fools joke. A damn good one i might add! It seems to have fooled a fair few of you by the looks of the forum postings and e-mails we've been recieving!

A big thanks to everyone involved in the making of this. Reno for all his hard working creativity. Sam for being the fantastic writer that we've been crying out for years. Harry Knowles for playing ball with us. TORN for promoting us and a big up to WingNut for giving us the go ahead on the prank that fooled as many people as Forgotten Silver did!

Now to answer the big question a lot of people have been asking. Are these t-shirts for real? The answer to that question is ... Yes they are. The shirts will be on sale to you the public within the next few days so keep checking back to get your grubby hands on what all the kids will be wearing this season. Needless to say they wont be available in any highstreet shop ;)

On Sale Now!!!

Few sights are sadder in international diplomacy than seeing an aging figure desperate for honours. In a desperate effort to net them, he scurries around, cultivating, prodding, wishing to be noted.
