Sitting Tennant 2010 – the caption competition winner

It’s that time. Christmas is over. New Year has been. It’s time to announce the winner of 2010’s Sitting Tennant. Here was the final picture of 2010, provided by Erin C, last year’s picture competition winner.

But who produced the best caption for it? And how will that affect the overall scores? Answer after the jump…

After due examination of all the captions, I can hereby pronounce that Ms Rullsenberg was the winner of the Christmas caption competition and gets 10 points. That means that the overall scoreboard for 2010 is…

  1. Marie, Rullsenberg: 280
  2. Toby: 225
  3. Electric Dragon: 210
  4. Dani: 110
  5. SK: 90
  6. Jane Henry: 75
  7. ecg: 50
  8. Rachel: 45
  9. whogal: 35
  10. Joe B: 30
  11. Sabine, Virpi: 25
  12. theriverlady: 15
  13. kellyann06, Sister Chastity, Alex, Paul Ebbs: 10
  14. George: 5

Yes, both Marie and Ms Rullsenberg are the winners, with Toby and Electric Dragon valiant second and third-places: congratulations to them all for their dedication to the art of captioning David Tennant sitting down in all manners of places and positions! Would anyone like to suggest a prize for Marie, Ms Rullsenberg and Erin C?

As always, a great big thank you to everyone who not only provided pictures but captioned them as well, providing epic amounts of fun for people around the world, both commenters and non-commenters alike. You’ve what made Sitting Tennant the success it is.

However, quick question: with David Tennant not so much on our screens anymore, with a vote in the Christmas poll against the return of Sitting Tennant (“just an irritating waste of screen space“) that nobody has counter-voted against, the quest for new pictures proving ever harder and, of course, the sad/happy news (delete as appropriate), are we all up for Sitting Tennant 2011 or not? Answers quickly from picture providers and captioners alike, please – stand up for Sitting Tennant or this will be his last sit…
