Today’s Sitting Tennants (from Rullsenberg, Sister Chastity and Jaradel)

David Tennant shocked

Sorry for the slight delay over Sitting Tenant today: I’ve been breaking in a new laptop after replacing my six-year-old PowerBook (heat-scarred, held together with sticky tape, broken modem, 7 key falling off, frequently crashing and very, very slow) with a new MacBook (ooh. Shiny. Fast. Powerful. Everything works. No keys falling off).

Hope the wait hasn’t made you tense.

Anyway, today’s Sitting Tennants are from Rullsenberg, Sister Chastity and Jaradel, who have once again showered me with so many pictures of David Tennant, we might need to have two Sitting Tennants next week, one on Tuesday and one on Thursday to cope with the Easter holidays. What do you think? Or shall we give them all a break from competition and just use up the pics the following Friday?

As you can see, these pics show the shock and worry experienced by David Tennant when he heard he was going to die, only to discover he was going to the Planet of the Dead, not the land of the dead as he was originally led to believe by the taxi driver. Still, one hell of an April Fool.

The picture board now stands as follows, with Jaradel and Sister Chastity neck and neck thanks to Jaradel’s topical pic:

  1. Rullsenberg: 15.5
  2. Sister Chastity, Jaradel: 11.5
  3. Rosby: 2.5

In the world of witty captioning, Toby almost lost a point for resorting to puns, but I let him off – again. Jane Henry gets the picture 1 bonus point for speaking the truth; Toby got a bonus point for caption 2 and speaking the truth; while Marie and Persephone tied for wittiest caption 3. Which means – shock, horror – that Toby is now the leader of the captioning competition. Can retribution in the form of a thumb war be far behind?

  1. Toby: 63.5
  2. Marie: 63
  3. Jane Henry: 44.5
  4. Rullsenberg: 40
  5. Persephone: 34.5
  6. Jaradel: 29.5
  7. Electric Dragon: 12
  8. Rev/Views 10
  9. Scott: 3
  10. Aaron: 2
  11. 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. And there’s a bonus point for using Gary Numan lyrics appropriately.

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.
