@R_Chirgwin @BernardKeane Erm, if me and @NewtonMark are the answer then it must’ve been a bloody silly question.

@ozdj I’m sure this is some coded message denouncing capitalism, but I’m buggered if I can work it out.

Mind you, Fairfax’s readers will be reassured that their own mindless submission to consumerism is “normal”, so shut up and buy something.

Note, too, how these SMEGs capitalise “Social”, like it’s some grand historical movement, not a faddish buzzword for normal human activity.
