1900s: Mr Slow
In my mind, Mr Slow sounds like a benign Brian Blessed.
1910s: Mr Uppity
Mr Uppity’s poo-like complexion and shape played a large part in shaping my class consciousness that is now difficult to explain.
1920s: Mr Skinny
The Great Depression was a tough time for a lot of families, but people back then knew that a stylish red hat was a reasonable substitute for many basic food groups.
1930s: Mr Fussy
Herr Fussy couldn’t help but tidy up some of those ragged European borders and inconvenient minority groups, the scamp.
1940s: Mr Brave
‘Never have so many owed so much to someone with such a silly hat.’
1950s: Mr Happy
Mr Happy had dinner on the table waiting for him, kids that didn’t answer back and all the asbestos he could eat.
1960s: Mr Daydream
It was a crazy time, maaann.
1970s: Mr Silly
The shoes. The brownness. The ridiculous hat. No Mr Man is more of his time than Mr Silly.
1980s: Mr Wrong
Rocking the Culture Club look here. I’m sorry to say there was never a Mr Mullet.
1990s: Mr Oizo
