A lot of people are up in arms about the new ‘Doctor Who’ logo. I have to say I agree with their concerns. There are so many things wrong with it, it’s difficult to know where to start.
Found this in my email inbox today….
“The Cavan Minor Team of 1959 recently held their 50-year anniversary to commemorate their All-Ireland final appearance of that year. Most of the team are still alive but one of the players, reported to be dead in the Anglo Celt newspaper the previous week, turned up at the function.” Rumours of his death had been somewhat exaggerated. He had actually been living on the streets for years but had somehow got wind of the affair.
Can you see him? I guess the photo’s a bit small. Maybe I can find a different shot…let’s see…
Oh, here we are! See if you can spot him in this one.
