I have one thing to say...

fist & foreskin

Often, pop culture draws upon itself for inspiration.

However, some would argue that when uncredited, a more appropriate term for this "inspiration" is "rip off." A fine and treacherous line it seems to be!

Discuss whether Saturday Night Live and Jon Hamm "ripped off" or drew "inspiration" from Spanish soccer player Sergio Ramos Garcia.

Turn your papers in on my desk with your name and student number in the top left corner.

deadline day gossip!

Report: Middlesbrough’s Adam Johnson Set For Manchester City Move

Manchester City have reported had a bid for Middlesbrough winger Adam Johnson accepted on deadline day.

Skysports.com report that Boro have been considering City’s latest offer of £7m since the weekend, after the pacey winger made it know to the Teesside club that he wanted to move to join Roberto Mancini’s side.

Now is seems Gordon Strachan was prepared to stand in the way of his hunted player and has accepted the offer – which was the second improved bid from City.

Reports claimed that Johnson will be allowed to Eastlands, despite the paperwork is not yet complete between the two clubs.

Johnson, 22, will now look to complete a medical and agree personal terms before the 5pm deadline, but it now looks as if Johnson will be the latest big-name departure from Middlesbrough.

Johnson’s move apparently was to pave the way to finance the permanent moves for Lee Miller and Scott McDonald both in the pipeline.
