Norris’s norks

Although it’s many years since I worked for Guinness World Records, some sort of primeval instinct asserts itself now and again when a relevant news story comes into view. Would I have included it in the book, I wonder? Would it have warranted a picture? Would I have had to mediate over tantrums regarding its validity? All these thoughts flashed through my mind when I heard of the good ladies of Worcester, who had attempted to break the record for the most bras linked together, but were forced to call it off when the relevant undergarments became entangled. As such, it wouldn’t have made the cut. But it is, in its own way, the perfect British silly season story, in that it combines three highly attractive narrative components: admirable charitable instincts; breasts; and plucky failure.

Never mind, maybe a nice picture of a young Charlotte Rampling in a bra will boost my viewing figures again.

To provide some balance, I'm going to attempt a similar record-breaker with Y-fronts. Anyone want to join me?

Any pics of any other young starlets rampling?

Clean ones, Rol?

I don't know, you naughty Rog, I've never Rampled.

She appears to be wearing some sort of a computer-says-no face.

Cunning s.o.b. Your Rample pictures have lured me twice and now I'm curious to know the mind behind the ploy.
