Bloggers anxiously await A-level results

Will we get lots of pictures of pretty girls leaping in the air again this year or will political correctness have wiped them out?

What foul excuse will we use when we promptly nick the pictures and use them on our blogs? How we will tread that fine line between secretly approving of the genre while pretending to scoff at it?

Is there an age at which it become an actual arrestable offence to look at pictures of very attractive identical 18-year old twins who inevitably get identical grades?

Questions, questions.

The best thing about A-Level season is no matter how old you get, A-Level girls always stay the same age.

There has already been some compromise: it used to be the girls, now the photos concentrate on the timed-elevation, getting as many A-levelers up in the air at once as possible.

I saw five-up last year but there is scope for that score to be greatly improved by stunt coordination.

The Daily Mail is on its predictable top form.

Well done, The Mail! The utter unbridled cycnicism of labelling one of the photos "Special moment"! For whom? The "students" or the people ogling?

WOAR, the Mail has one of 12 in the air. It should have been 13, but one girl got the timing wrong.

The DT is doing it tongue-in-cheek
'On A-level results day, it's traditional, almost compulsory, to show pictures of girls jumping for joy in celebration. We wouldn't wish to disappoint'

18 year old twins with A-levels normally cost you a fortune.

Mark Wadsworth said...

B, indeed. You'd think that the photographer would either check or make them do it a few times to make sure one of them was right. She'll never live it down, ppor lass.

VFTS, they are treading that thin line between "voyeurism" and "commenting on voyeurism". Fair play.

TS, I wouldn't know, I'll take your word for it.

Bayard said...

VFTS, for sheer numbers in the air at once, the Mail has them beat, even allowing for the non-jumping Geordie lass.
