‘The Absolute Unit’ tea towel – blue


‘The Absolute Unit’ tea towel – blue

Did you know the term ‘absolute unit’, now commonly used to describe any oversized and handsome animal, originated in a tweet from The MERL in 2018?

The simple caption ‘look at this absolute unit’ alongside a photograph of an Exmoor horn ram belonging to G.F. Thorne, a farmer from Simonsbath in Somerset shot both the ram and our small University museum in Reading, UK to fame across the twitterverse and beyond.
