wtf is he wearing??

is it boden?

foxinsocks Wed 19-Aug-09 19:53:41

I know, it's hysterical

I thought he had insects on him <disclaimer, I am not wearing my glasses>

JustKeepSwimming Wed 19-Aug-09 19:54:19

i think it's cars?

weird though.

brimfull Wed 19-Aug-09 19:54:35

i thought crabs

ds agrees with you

foxinsocks Wed 19-Aug-09 19:55:09

I thought giant cockroaches

foxinsocks Wed 19-Aug-09 19:55:26

they definitely look beetle-like and have legs

brimfull Wed 19-Aug-09 19:56:21

tis crabs-i tell you

foxinsocks Wed 19-Aug-09 19:57:32

can't think why you'd want to advertise crabs <nor beetles I guess>

foxinsocks Wed 19-Aug-09 19:58:06

dh says spiders

brimfull Wed 19-Aug-09 20:00:14

we could send him a text and ask

foxinsocks Wed 19-Aug-09 20:01:19

yes let's do that

I looked right up close now and am none the wiser

one looked like it had a tail

and another like it had 4 legs (2 either side)

brimfull Wed 19-Aug-09 20:03:01

what's the number

foxinsocks Wed 19-Aug-09 20:05:19

ok have found the live text on the bbc website

will scan it for any mention of shirt

brimfull Wed 19-Aug-09 20:06:44

go girl

foxinsocks Wed 19-Aug-09 20:10:10

have texted the live text thing on the BBC

I think we need an answer

from far away it looks different to close up doesn't it

Sagacious Wed 19-Aug-09 20:10:57

God thats awful

He looks knackered as well (is it me or is his left eye drooping slightly?)

brimfull Wed 19-Aug-09 20:11:26

it is bizarre

haven't been up close though

foxinsocks Wed 19-Aug-09 20:13:02

go up close

the Athletics live text is not very interesting. The cricket one is always quite funny. I think the bloke running it might be watching somethng else.

foxinsocks Wed 19-Aug-09 20:13:53

athletics live text

think I could do better than that

like he hasn't even mentioned Roman Sebrle and his amazing surge up the decathlon table (given his age, farking impressive!)

JustKeepSwimming Wed 19-Aug-09 21:57:27

No answer yet then?

I went up really close to the screen and it looked like -quite stylized- birds to me, the ptarmigan type, with small heads. Might be entirely wrong, though.

seeker Thu 20-Aug-09 07:11:22

My children thought lobsters.

Gracelo Thu 20-Aug-09 07:38:47

It looked like that www.trojanhorseantiques.com/LimogesBirdPlate11.jpg just that the two birds were closer together and looked at each other.
My first thought was bugs or cockroaches too.
I hope we will get an answer.

It looked like curled up feathers to me - it was a truely awful shirt.
