Frankie Say Relax



A little bit ago, a guy passed me running up the steps of RFT HQ. He was wearing a fluorescent yellow/green T-shirt that said "FRANKIE SAY RELAX" on the front and "DON'T DO IT" on the back. Since he looked college-aged, I'm assuming it's a modern version of the classic '80s tee, which advertised the Frankie Goes to Hollywood song "Relax."

Now, let's take a poll. Was the shirt the guy was wearing:

a) awesome b) lame c) an affront to the '80s d) a poor attempt to replicate a past that will never exist again e) all of the above

My answer:

E, of course.
