Tuesday’s Sitting Tennant (week 31, 2011)

Sister Chastity's Sitting Tennant

Well, after a long holiday, Sitting Tennant has returned. Hope you didn’t feel too deprived, but now chairs around the country are feeling rested and recharged, ready for Mr David to sit on them, so I’m sure it was all worth it.

First of the new Tennants comes from Sister Chastity. I imagine our David has been looking at the weather forecast, judging by his glumness. But what do you think captioneers?

  1. Hebbie: 220
  2. Sister Chastity: 185
  3. Erin C: 95
  4. Rullsenberg: 55
  5. Janice: 20
  6. esgaril: 10
  7. theriverlady, Toby: 5

Back in the wide, wide world of words, despite the bleak alternative universe painted by SK’s fearsome intellect, it’s Ms Rullsenberg’s smut that wins through to get the top 10 points. Well done to her and thanks to everyone else for contributing – with Marie off in New York (what a good time to pick to film a movie, huh?), we could see some excitement at the top of the leaderboard this time next week. What do you think?

Thinking caps on and away you go!

  1. Marie: 175
  2. Rullsenberg: 170
  3. SK: 120
  4. Toby: 100

  7. Lisa G: 45
  8. theriverlady: 35
  9. Virpi: 25
  10. Hebbie: 20

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 and doesn’t obviously infringe copyright, it will appear in the Sitting Tennant gallery. Don’t forget to include your name in the filename so I don’t get mixed up about who sent it to me.

The best pic in the stash each week will appear on Tuesday and get ten points; the runners up will appear on Friday (one per person who sends one in) and get five points.

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