50 million British go gay
Clever product marketing in 1953. See the Guards in bearskin hats? In fact the boy in front wants candy more than the parade. Will he go gay with a sugar rush? That expression "go gay"conveys so much more than "be happy". It's wonderful, and would be nice to revive. The other, more modern meaning is OK too.
