Oh please is it not obvious that Fred Flintstone and Superman are in different categories because Fred does not wear any pants and superman wears his over his stride, hence why their in different world record categories....some people
Obviusly some distinction between cartoon and comic strips
I saw the catepillar walking on the BBC coverage
I know superman started as a comic strip but there has been a cartoon too. Can't say I'm loosing sleep over it, just seems a bit random.
I used to be good at doing a Rubik's cube, could do it in just over a minor consistently, doing 100 along the route seems pretty easy to beat.
Did the people in the caterpillar (looked more like people tied together by bits of string, seemed rather feeble compared to the caterpillar from previous years) detach from each other to go into the loos?

CD - I'm most impressed with Matthew Pariss the MP, who has run 2:32. Not sure I agree with his politics but he's a pretty impressive runner. I think I've heard the same thing said of BR
Now, I'm in a unique position to compare these two.
MP bought me a pint after finishing London and so did BR after his 2:45 on Sunday.
Thier politics do differ slightly but the main difference was that I had to buy BR two pints first! (something to do with being northern no doubt. Oh and the fact that it was probably 50p a pint when MP did London and many multiples of that on Sunday! )
previous record was held by John Prescott when he saw the buffet table at the Seoul G20 summit.
Saw the running testicles at mile 17, a few of us were staring, trying to work out what the costume was supposed to be as we thought it looked like a ballbag but couldn't really believe anyone would run as that, but it said "Mr Testicles" on the back which clinched it.
Seemed to be going well, pretty much mid-pack at that point
