    Comment of the week:

    Self indulgently, this is from one of our editors but it's a goodie: on the unveiling of the new Underground moquette:

    One moquette to rule them all. Shame they didn't get American Apparel to design it. I think we'd all like to see Tube seats covered in 3-D floral lace schoolboy unitard pant.

    We'd actually rather see you covered in that, M@.
