The original subject matter was initiated by Eddie, so presumably is no more offensive than, say, pictures of a BBC reporter blowing up condoms.

How about that, Nigel?Aircraft hit trees? Sad.Oil everywhere no doubt? I suggest "There will be blood" and Daniel Day Lewis over acting again.Off Raider? that is the body that monitors the variable quality of the Lara Croft series of video games isn't it? Shopkeeper disagreed with their view on the last one did they? I don't blame them. Thu 31 Jul 2008 14:16:30 GMT+1
