Friday’s Sitting Tennant (from Sabine): Dreams

Sabine's Sitting Tennant

Sitting. It’s a very hard word to define precisely. We’ve stretched it a bit to incorporate David Tennant lying backward. But now the returning Sabine has challenged our understanding of ‘sitting’ with this picture in which he is lying forward. Is he still ‘sitting’?

I sense an exhibition coming on.

Anyway, she gets the three points. Don’t quibble.

  1. Rullsenberg: 63.5
  2. Sister Chastity: 60.5
  3. Jaradel: 35.5
  4. Karen: 10
  5. Toby: 5
  6. Amy, Lauren, Sabine: 4
  7. Rosby: 2.5
  8. Persephone: 1

There was some fearsome competition over in captions, but finally Toby leapt in at the last minute with a tale of an even more cut-throat competition, that won him the 10 points and the lead.

Good luck ye one and ye all: may the force be with ye.

  1. Toby: 186.5
  2. Marie: 182.5
  3. Rullsenberg: 137
  4. Electric Dragon: 76
  5. Jane Henry: 75.5
  6. Persephone: 45.5
  7. Jaradel: 38.5
  8. Rev/Views: 25
  9. Joe: 20
  10. Sister Chastity: 15
  11. Scott 2: 14
  12. George: 10
  13. Scott: 3
  14. Aaron: 2
  15. 1
  16. Stu_N: 1

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, everyone who contributes getting five points.
