Happy Birthday Mussolini, here’s Big Train!

Published: 29th Jul, 2009

Big Train, Do you speak English?

Had he not been executed by the Italian resistance in 1945 and hung upside down in a petrol station so that everyone could take a look at his nasty rotting corpse, the Fascist Italian leader Benito Mussolini would be turning a massive 126 today. Presumably around 65 of those 126 years would have been well spent apologising for being such a massive Hitler fan during the war. The idiot. Still, we are forgiving people, so we thought we’d buy him a gift. After much thought, and 48 Woodbines, it boiled down to a toss up between a massive coned hat with a big D on it, or a clip from Big Train. In the end we got him both. Up yours Mussolini!
