Today’s Sitting Tennant (from Rullsenberg): Measure For Measure

The advent Sitting Tennant competition continues, despite controversy among obvious communists and drug addicts who think that waxing lyrical about a sedentary Tennant every day or so is "too difficult" to manage. Pah. We’re made of sterner stuff than that, I think.

Today’s Sitting Tennant is yet another from now-obvious picture champion-to-be, Ms Rullsenberg, who’s still managing to maintain her lead despite being in New Zealand. If the will is there, any challenge can be overcome – well except for that white suit in the above picture from Measure For Measure.

The Sitting Tennant picture competition table now stands as follows:

  • Rullsenberg: 11.5
  • Rosby: 9
  • Persephone: 6.5
  • Toby: 5
  • Poly, Scott: 3.5
  • Jane: 2.5
  • Anna, Electric Dragon: 1.5
  • Marie: 1

The Witty And Amusing Captions league table sees much excitement. Prize for wittiest of the last bunch goes to Toby, who gets double points for ripping the piss out me (that’s not an invitation) in a caption for picture 1, and to Marie for a picture 2 caption – all achieved without the benefit of state hand-outs or methadone (I hope). Shameless former Bolshevik Persephone reveals her true colours as a recidivist, fifth columnist and kulak by deciding to take advantage of Rullsenberg being 17 hours ahead of her to jump into fourth place; meanwhile, Electric Dragon and Rev are reunited in sixth place, and new captioner Scott arrives on the scoreboard for the first. Welcome, Scott!

  • Toby: 38
  • Marie: 31.5
  • Jane Henry: 21
  • Persephone: 15
  • Rullsenberg: 14
  • Electric Dragon, Rev: 8
  • Stu_N: 2
  • Poly, Andrea, Scott: 1

As always, captions and new submissions for the gallery, please. Remember, you can submit as many (witty) captions as you like for each and every picture, with topical captions (and pictures of David Tennant in current productions) getting extra marks. The wittiest caption for each picture will get double points.

The final Sitting Tennant of 2008 will be on December 23rd when the results will be announced. Any ideas for prizes?

Got a picture of David Tennant sitting, lying down or in some indeterminate state in between? Then leave a link to it below and if it’s judged suitable, it will appear in the “Sitting Tennant” gallery. You can also enter the witting and amusing captions league table by commenting on existing photos in the gallery.
