Happy Red Nose Day!

So. Today is Comic Relief day. Have you got your Red Nose? Alas, I haven't because I've actually not seen them for sale anywhere... I fail, I know.

Anyway, in the spirit of things and people doing something funny for money, here we go.

10 Downing Street has a big red nose on the door:

And I'll leave it there I think. Would just like to say that these are not my entries, and all credit goes to the lovely people who thought them up! For more, check out @serafinowicz. If you think you can do better, join in but remember that you have to donate to Comic Relief to play: http://www.justgiving.com/peterserafinowicz
I would play, but I can't think of anything worthy for this, so I'm passing it on to you guys!

Oh, and if you wanted RND icons...

That looks awesome on the door!

Haven't seen them on sale here, either. *ponders*
I think in celebration of RedNoseDay, I'll rewatch Top Gear Ground Force XDDD

Hehe tis rather good :)

I think Comic Relief is a British thing... but I can't be sure that it hasn't ventured elsewhere now. It's a two yearly phenomenon and I normally go out and buy a red nose, for RND, but I've not been out much this week, and where I've been hasn't sold them! Maybe I'll have to see if there are any left next week, just so I can feel I've done something for it all.

Not sure if I've seen TG Ground Force... but it sounds like a plan to watch it, cause celebrities do silly things for Comic Relief

Je ne sais pas. This is the 21st year of RND.

Oooh I'll have a look at that, thanks! Just got to finish watching a sketch with David Tennant and Catherine Tate from last time

Tell me what you think of it when you saw it, its like the most hillarious embarrasing thing they ever did XDDD
Mar. 13th, 2009 03:52 pm (UTC)
That's got to be impressive then cause they do lots of hilarious things!

'Gardening, how hard can it be?' XDDD

Yus XD. They really should learn not to say those immortal words of 'How hard can it be?' cause every time they do, they always get challenged. However, when Hammond said that about F1 racing, it created a rather interesting challenge...
Mar. 13th, 2009 04:11 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I loved that episode XD
Mar. 13th, 2009 04:13 pm (UTC)
It was one of the best :D
