Doctor Who - David Tennant fangirls

Mental images you just can't shake...

...so you share 'em with your FList instead.

'Cos as is well known, I'm a wee bit of a Doctor Who fan.

I'm also a wee bit of a David Tennant fan. Also known as Ten, because he played the Tenth Doctor. Also known as Ten-Inch, because...well, ask Billie Piper.

ALso, I'm British. We do understatement terribly well, don't you know? So for "a wee bit," read, "a heck of a lot".

And there's an ad for Walkers crisps going round at the moment featuring Gary Lineker - or at least stunt dancing double Gary Lineker(s) - dancing energetically to a certain song originally by popular beat combo The Weathergirls, but with the lyrics slightly altered to reflect the possibility of winning £10:00 if you successfully predict when it will rain. (We live in Britain. "Always.")

Can you see where this is going? Here's the ad, if you can't:

Can you imagine the sort of mental image this sets up in my mind..?

It's a pleasant one, suffice it to say. :o) All I need now is for some kind soul to render it as an animated .gif...

I'm sorry, but I just find this disgusting.

From the Washington Post: KAMPALA, Uganda -- The front-page newspaper story featured a list of Uganda's 100 "top" homosexuals, with a bright yellow banner across it that read: "Hang Them." Alongside their photos were the men's names and addresses.

In the days since it was published, at least four gay Ugandans on the list have been attacked and many others are in hiding, according to rights activist Julian Onziema. One person named in the story had stones thrown at his house by neighbors.

I'm sorry, but...what??! That's just so wrong.
