Happy Chinese New Year! // Enter the Dragon (inspired products)

When I was a kid I always said I wanted to have Chinese babies. When quizzed, my reply was not “because they are soooo fricking cute” or “because I have an Asian persuasion”. I wanted Chinese babies because on You’ve Been Framed they always showed Chinese babies doing funny things like falling asleep in their food or blowing snot bubbles. I wanted funny babies.


It’s Chinese New Year on 23rd January and 2012 is the Year of the Dragon. If you were born in 1964, 1976 or 1988 this is your year. If you were born in 2000, you’re too young for this site – we do swears and sex here.

According to Chinese astrology you are a pretty big deal. You’re independent, creative, a leader, have nice hair and probably hated by me in high school.

In my head when you say ‘dragon’ I see bad ’90s tattoos and shiny polyester dresses with high necklines probably still available down Camden market.

Those are bad. These are good:
