Define "cool"! Also, what publication was this list in? Presumably something read by aspirational, proto-yuppie types.

What a load of bollocks.

Nice to see the humble apple in at No. 2. Wonder if they had to state a preference: Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, a nice Russet, Cox's Orange Pippin, etc. :? :? :?

At least Bono's not on the list!! :grin: Apples at No.2, I bet oranges,bananas and pears are well pissed off :smt005 Eastenders, Ant & Dec, Jermey Clarkson :smt013 and apparently a pair of hair straightners are cooler than a spitfire & Concorde!! :?

I noticed that Leather Jacket, DM's and Harley Davidson are also listed, that's as close to a member of The Stranglers as were going to get. :lol:
