New C4 ad shows they're either a) unaware of recent news stories and therefore cunts or

b) aware of recent news events and think they'll chose an image that will prove how edgy they are, therefore marking them out as cunts.

C4 - officially full of cunts.

deep_stoat 12:47, reply

Station-wide ad, not C4 News.

And the plane disappeared *six weeks ago*.

My favourite over-sensitivity to news events is still the Proms cancelling in the week after Diana's death the John Adams piece 'A Short Ride in a Fast Machine'. Proms organisers tried to make amends though, programming it again four years later (September 2001).

hack_daniels 15:32, reply

I know it's not the news, and the ad has been up for a while.

I'm questioning why they would chose to use such an image, it's got nothing to do with what it's advertising and seems more directed at proving how edgy they are. Which, with C4, wouldn't be surprising in the least. At had to deal with more tedious cunts there than anywhere else (actually that's not entirely true, it's probably the BBC but that's just the amount of people you have to deal with naturally upping the cunt quota).

'Such an image'

Take care with that nosegay, milady. xx

They simply chose it because we in this country are so good at television.

Nothing to do of course with a cast member being an octopus-fingered letch and trying it on with anyone with a clitoris and a pulse. But it would be catty of me to say any more.

Sauna antics

Neither P nor B but amusing. Canny visitors to Saunas in public baths have frequently smuggled in bags of ice to wrap around the thermostat and thus raise the temperature to proper Scandinavian levels. This was recently brought to the attention of the staff at a leisure centre in Lewisham. When they investigated however, they found two men doing something a little bit unexpected.

Namely, cooking chicken breasts on the sauna's heater.

It is odd that after a brief flurry of interest and

speculation no-one seems too interested in which might be the club 'which cannot be named for legal reasons'...

I can't even think what the legal reasons might be, but that's because I have a stunted imagination.

bad_horsey 11:14, reply

Now the most exciting part of the season - not the first place or relegation issues

its "the avoid the Europa Cup by losing the most matches" to avoid 5th and 6th place. Get ready for the most unusual (and profitable) betting opportunities for years. Moyes was fighting to keep his job - that was what the Glasers were most frightened of.

deep_stoat 17:56, reply

Yes Natalie can be a little 'challenging'

to work with..When asked to approve a number of photos from a shoot, the response was that she didn't like any of them. Unfortunately someone *cough* (who was too pressed for time to organise a reshoot) had already sent them out..whoops! Still, she did run the marathon last weekend so genuine round of applause and all that.
