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.

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...
the saturdays: just can't get enough rnd

"I just can't get enough"

Thoughts on Comic Relief so far:

David Tennant = so amazingly droolable in a white suit.
Davina McCall = so excited. It's ace.
David Tennant + Davina McCall = so awesome cause they work together really well
Awesome quotes: 'You even sound sexy talking about the tax man!' - Davina on David
Mastermind = WIN!
Watching people belly dance down Stafford highstreet on the tv... genius!
Outnumbered is looking good so far :D

Other thoughts:
The Saturdays outfits at the beginning of the show: what?
Unsure as to why people seem to be crying over the show...

I've done my bit for Comic Relief. Bought two Mr Funny's Red Nose Day books a while back (which meant I forgot about them until they mentioned it on the show) and I've entered Peter Serafinowicz's Vegetable Pop Star competition :D

More thoughts to come later, maybe.

Edit:
OMG!! The kiss!
'If I give £50 to Comic Relief, can I kiss you?'
'I'd have done it for a fiver'
Davina, I kind of hate you right now, but I still love you really.

Edit:
I am loving the French and Saunders' Mamma Mia. Give me more!
'I'm Bond', 'I'm Darcy', 'I'm a swede'
'Chicken Tikka, tell me what's wrong...'

However, I am less happy with Jonathan Ross and Claudia Winkleman presenting now :(

Edit:
I never thought I'd laugh so much at football related things, but that RND football sketch was awesome! That's the kind of football I like.
