A bit of A Bit of Fry and Laurie: Grey and Hopeless

Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie

It’s the New Year and at least one of my resolutions is to continue posting sketches from A Bit of Fry and Laurie. This week’s is a request from The Other David: ‘Grey and Hopeless’, which sounds more like yesterday’s weather than today’s but is very funny.

Until next week, soupy twist!

Sitting Tennant

Tuesday’s Sitting Tennant (week 1, 2012)

Janice and Sister Chastity's Sitting Tennant

It’s a new year and a new beginning for Sitting Tennant. Once more dear friends, I invite you all to submit your best pictures of David Tennant in a sitting or reclining position, married or unmarried. Once more, I invite you all to caption the best “Sitting Tennant” of the week.

But this year, as promised, a slight wrinkle to proceedings that should enable everyone to feel like they can take part, whether they jump in late or have been with the competitions since the beginning. From now on, there’ll be monthly champions for both picture and caption competitions, so everyone can be a winner, no matter what time of year it is!

So start scouting, take whatever amount of inspiration pills you need and prepare to enter Sitting Tennant 2012. To kick everything off, here’s Sister Chastity’s first entry of the year, which also happens to be both Janice’s and Hebbie’s first entry of the year. Great minds clearly think alike and I hope it meets with your agreement.

  1. Sister Chastity, Janice, Hebbie: 10

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.

Each month, I’ll name the best picture provider and best captioneer, and then at the end of the year, the overall champion will be announced for 2012!
