Friday’s Sitting Tennant (from Ms Rullsenberg): Something in an asylum

Ms Rullsenberg's Sitting Tennant

Roll up, roll up. Come one, come all. It’s time for Friday’s Sitting Tennant. This week’s winner in the coconut shy of life that is pictures of Scottish actors on load-bearing surfaces is Ms Rullsenberg, who has successfully provided us with this piece of insanity to fend off Sister Chastity’s advances on her position. Where is it from, I wonder?

  1. Rullsenberg: 43.5
  2. Sister Chastity: 40
  3. Jaradel: 27.5
  4. Rosby: 2.5
  5. Amy: 2
  6. Persephone: 1

Meanwhile, over in witty captions, Toby returns to fight anew with a pun on cheeks which wins him this week’s 10 points. At least, I think it was a pun.

  1. Marie: 142.5
  2. Toby: 141.5
  3. Rullsenberg: 92
  4. Jane Henry: 70.5
  5. Persephone: 45.5
  6. Jaradel: 38.5
  7. Electric Dragon: 31
  8. Rev/Views: 25
  9. Scott 2: 14
  10. Joe, Sister Chastity: 10
  11. Scott: 3
  12. Aaron: 2
  13. 1
  14. Stu_N: 1

Remember, you can submit as many captions as you like for today’s picture, with the wittiest getting 10 points next Friday.

Got a picture of David Tennant sitting, lying down or in some indeterminate state in between? Then leave a link to it below or email me and if it’s judged suitable, it will appear in the “Sitting Tennant” gallery.

Every photo displayed on Monday (one per person who sends one in) gets a point, with a bonus point if it’s from the latest DT production; the best pic in the stash each week will appear on Friday and get three points.

You can also enter the witty and amusing captions league table by commenting on Friday’s Sitting Tennant photo, the best caption getting 10 points.
