I suspect a 'Violence of Response' will be the common manifestation:

"Of course I am !!!" or, alternatively,

"Don't be so utterly ridiculous !!!"

It is very unlikely that there will have been any speculative rumination upon the matter.
It will have been a Black & White issue, without room for any shades of 18% Grey

Good for you ~ whichever group you ascribe to.
It is an excellent thing for a man, or a woman, to nail their colours to the mast in such an irrefutable manner.
'Stand up and be counted Sir/Madam, and be proud to do so.'
And because we belong to a liberal society we extend the right of each individual to determine their position with gusto and hold to that position without shame or trepidation.

It makes you proud to be British, doesn't it? WinkSmileSmile

However, before we get into liberally voluble discussions either in favour and against, just answer one final question

Who said anything about cameras? WinkTongue

The thought of Nikons: Canons: Sonys: Olympus': Pentaxs': Fuji: or any other make of recording device had never entered my head when I asked the question.
You've jumped to an immediate assumption, and instantly made a judgement.











I was wondering how many people I would see proudly wearing their EPZ baseball cap Wink

I like it Jack!

Actually you won't catch me wearing a baseball cap of any description. Not even one with a picture of myself on it, although I dare say they'd sell well.
Baseball seems to me to be as mind-numbimgly pointless as cricket. And tennis. And don't forget football. So why would I want to put something ridiculous on my head and pretend to be a part of it?
What possesses otherwise sensible, well balanced, respectable members of society to suddenly don something that has even less natural shape that the existing, naked, tops of their heads and flaunt it in public is beyond me.
Particularly when the front of it is emblazoned with some garish advert for something that they don't have, don't need and probably don't begin to understand.

So;
In a nutshell.
I don't like them.
Not even with a picture of myself on it.
And not even if I could sell lots of them.
Probably.

Is there a battle somewhere, Bren ? Can anyone join in ? Smile

Quote:... a complete prat in them ...

I thought everyone did. I thought that was the purpose.
I particularly enjoy seeing people wearing them back to front GrinGrin
I don't understand why they do so, but .......

But nothing like as much as I enjoy seeing people wearing Snow-White-&-the-7-Dwarfs 'Dopey' hats
You know those woolly things that hang halfway down their backs
Now they really DO look ......... TongueTongue

You sent me the "bags-on-head" one because I'd won some challenge or other and I aquired this year's version because you were giving away the last few in a forum thread and I was one of the lucky ones.

oops - apologies for being so forgetful Smile I really should pay attention - of course I did - I've yet to automatically associate your real name with your Jester moniker......

I need to start knocking out some new decent SPs this year if I'm to produce a 2013 calendar!
