when I watch the awful gurning, faux comedy dancing (when they're really thinking "i'm a so so sexy dancer, sexier than him" etc)

Sid and Andy??? YADBU, they are Love Gods, the pair of them.

it turns me on a little bit mrsz. I have always had a bit of a weirdy crush on the black guy. its the crushed velvet brown pants. or something

mrszimmerman Mon 26-Sep-11 09:49:14

Actually I like the black guy what's he called?
It's the brunette guy who loves himself so much that I want to vomit.

YABU! Number raps and Sid and Andy are the best thing on cbeebies!

I'm with HouseOfBamboo, they are Love Gods!

Steady now girls. There is really only one love god on kids tv and that is Ben Willbond offa Horrible Histories and sometimes I have warped feelings about Justin Fletcher. Yes. I said it.

self love is not sexy
make it stop!

lolaflores Mon 26-Sep-11 09:55:29

Do we not all think that Justin would be all lovely and grateful for a bit of a go on a lady? Gurning at you and making that funny Mr. tumble noise? Just me then.

mrszimmerman Mon 26-Sep-11 09:56:21

Do you mean Mr TUMBLE?????
Dirty dirty naughty lolaflores!

lolaflores Mon 26-Sep-11 09:56:52

Oh no MrsZ. Their gormless grooving keeps me hugely entertained and we have learned the words. It was the SNowman bit over christmas that kept making a bit of sick come up. THe stuff of nightmares.

(I'm sure I remember talk of a MNer doing it with Justin in real life?)

mrszimmerman Mon 26-Sep-11 09:58:28

gormless grooving very good.

TheCountessOlenska Mon 26-Sep-11 09:58:40

oh my god lolaflores, you are a sick sick woman!! That made me snort my tea through my nose. I'm watching him right now as well!!

lolaflores Mon 26-Sep-11 09:58:53

Yes Mrs.Z. lovely old chubby Justin. In saggy underpants and perhaps socks. Oh yes. But not in the Mr. Tumble suite. Though when he does Lord Tumble....I get a funny tickle.

<gets in all of a flutter thinking about nostrils>

TheCountessOlenska Mon 26-Sep-11 10:01:41

shock @ bintofbohemia !!

I much prefer Big and Small's rap.

Mr Bloom is the only sexy cbeebies man. <gavel>

Voidka Mon 26-Sep-11 10:04:25

YABU - Andy is brilliant!

lolaflores Mon 26-Sep-11 10:05:49

Mr. Bloom is like an underboild poached egg. With his flasher trilby on. And his friggin veggies. That voice, those teeth eeewwwww. He lives in a shed cos that s where probation put him after he did his last stretch of time for selling dodgy watches out of a suitcase on Oxford Stre

Now Ben Willbond, he is a class act and would shit all over any of the rest. I mean it.

NorfolkNChance Mon 26-Sep-11 10:14:47

Give me Jim Howick any day

lolaflores Mon 26-Sep-11 10:17:57

If I could have a pick and mix sort of an effort, Mr. Howick would be on the bench with Mr. Willbond. But it would be BW with first dibs.

BedHog Mon 26-Sep-11 10:21:38

They should bring back Brian Cant and Derek Griffiths. Now they were fit!!!

lolaflores Mon 26-Sep-11 10:27:57

bleuch. very unsuitable pants though. flarey acrylic pant. bleuch

mrszimmerman Mon 26-Sep-11 10:41:22

mr bloom BOAK! That is just wrong in all universes at all times on all levels. Take it back you're toying with our finer feelings.

Now in Mr Tumble's favour... I did see him in the flesh at a festival over the summer and he was not nearly as tubby close up as on t'telly. He actually looked quite slim. And he was actually being adorable with his fans... to the extent that the parents who had found themselves inadvertently walking past him started to almost kneel and bow their heads and the children's mouths were all literally agape. AND he did the amazing thing of blessing the various children with his hands, like (no offence) a kind of latter day harlequin clad JESUS!
If at that moment he'd come up to me and said "Listen, fancy a hot choc in my glamping teepee at 9.30, come alone and bring a towell I've got a posh shower next door" I would have thought about it, so messianic was his aura.
