Lent list

spoiler alert: this post makes reference to the December 17 episode on CBC

So let me get this straight. It's Lent and Sophie Webster, with new-found religious zeal, is giving up all her 'spends'. "Half to the Amnesty International and half to children in need," she says. Okay, that sounds good. So now it's Sally's turn to give up something for Lent. She reluctantly agrees to forgo her wine (Not Cuvee Rothsgut? Dev's revenues will take a nosedive - ed). Then it's Kev's turn. Sir Webster of Weatherfield will be forgoing his 'cans' for 40 days (Not tall containers of delicious lager? Rovers' revenues will take a nosedive - ed).

So that takes care of the Websters (I'm assuming Rosie will be giving up tarty clothes and 'slapperism' for 40 days). But what about the other denizens of the Street, what should they be giving up for Lent? Here's a few suggestions:

Anna Windass: crying over chocolates

Ed Windass: faking compo

Tina: perjury

Joe McIntyre: being a loser

Gail Platt: picking losers

David Platt: being the biggest loser

Liz Mcdonald: cougar couture

Steve Mcdonald: lying

Becky: slanging matches

Rita: Colin

Colin: Rita

Ken: narrow boats

Eccles: canal swimming

Shots from the hip... Thanks for the nice comments on yesterday's post. I had a lot of fun with it, mainly because I had to watch the Kelly/Becky fight several times on the VCR to follow the blow-by-blow. What a hoot!
