Rob Key covered in glory

He's practically dripping with the stuff (glory).



This was sent in by Sasha, who says: "Try not to stare at it for too long - the magnificence will blind you."

We've been testing this on your behalf and can reassure you that you can wallow in the opulent splendour for up to 25 minutes without blinking before you get a really bad headache and have to go for a bit of a lie down.

We haven't had confirmation from Sasha yet, but we're pretty certain that's a capybara in the foreground. The inclusion of a weird animal is a masterstroke.

It also gives us an opportunity to elaborate on the Rob Key myth. Clearly Rob is now part of the Hindu pantheon and the capybara is his 'vehicle', just as Shiva rides a bull and Ganesh rides a rat.

Sasha sent this as well:



This is a cheap shot.

We had another email, from Miriam, who wrote in to point out that it's Rob Key's birthday tomorrow. Obviously, we've got the date stencilled on our cerebellum, but we can't read it there, so we're glad she reminded us. Hopefully today's output is a suitable tribute to the great man.

Happy birthday, Rob.

Gosh, you really have left yourself nowhere to go with the Rob Key thing. What on earth are you going to post when he hits a quintuple-hundred in 2009 to win back the Ashes?

It is indeed a capybara, well done.

Apparently, capybara are rather tasty.

I hope no-one tells the great man this fact, or he may "lose" his steed.
