Dick Heads

Dick Heads: Percy

Our second Dick Head comes from someone, who for the sake of simplicity we will call Denise. This picture is entitled simply ‘Percy’ and shows Richard Armitage in a top hat – kudos on that, Denise, and a great big thank you.

The first Dick Head provoked multiple responses, some of captions, some of love poetry, some of haiku. So rather than impinge churlish ‘rules’ on this, I think we should accept Richard Armitage as our muse. He shall be our Calliope, our Erato, our Euterpe and our Thalia, all rolled into one. Let him take us where he wills.

Are you wanting me to keep score or are such things beneath us now?

We currently have two people’s Dick Heads in the queue, but if you want to submit your own, leave a URL below or email me. Remember, extra credit if you have a picture of Richard Armitage in a hat.

Dick Heads: The Beginning

Richard Armitage at the BAFTAs

Well, for our new feature, thanks to the lovely and inspired Jane Henry and Andrea, we appear to have settled on an actor (Richard Armitage), a format (pictures, usually taken by fans, that mainly focus on his head, with bonus points if he’s wearing a hat) and a corresponding name (Dick Heads).

Other than that, let’s see how it goes – normally these things grow organically as people get inspired. If you all one to write captions, love poetry or even haiku about the pictures or want to turn it into a competition à la Sitting Tennant, that’ll be your choice.

To get the ball rolling, here’s Richard Armitage in close up from the 2007 BAFTAs.

So, I’m putting out the call – pictures, please. Either leave a URL below or email me them. We’re going to start off slowly, just so we don’t use them up too quickly, so I’m only going to be needing one or two a week. Over to you!
