Tragically, thanks to deep budget cuts at Marvel Studios, theres had to be some rethinking of Captain Americas costume.

The Doctor’s List
Heres the first trailer for series 7 (or 33, or arguably 34) of Doctor Who. As filming for the series is still in the early stages, most of the scenes come from just one episode, the Old West one recently filmed in Spain, though the dark indoor scenes with the Egyptian princess and the robot-looking things are presumably from a different episode, and I would guess that the scenes in the snow with the familiar face (well, part of a face; well, I say face …) are from yet a third episode:
Pride Goeth Before a Romp
Use the phrase proudly romps in a sentence.
Ill bet your result isnt as strange as the original.
Like a Pope on the Wire
According to the Pope, the Catholic Church is always on the side of freedom, freedom of conscience, freedom of religion.
This seems like a claim that should have an asterisk next to it.
