As another preamble to a definitive post about “onions”, here’s something to watch, digest and think about before we get to the heart of the subject. In short “onions” are lippy kids, not because they’re hooligans, but because they think they’re men, much in the way, cats think humans are other cats and act accordingly. An “onion” would think nothing of going up to a 40 year old City gent and saying “Got the time on yer, mate?”.
Watching this Madness video pretty much sums up my life up until the age of 7. When I was a kid, this is what kids were like. Scamps and rascals getting into scrapes, and listening to pop-ska. Now you’ll just get stabbed in the eye as another youth tattoos txt msg obscenities on your blood streaked forehead, all the while tinny grime shitting out of their mobile phone speakers. Not that I’m down on the youths or anything.
