Gareth Daffyd Thomas: Now that's funny!

Ever since the admission by Welsh rugby star Gareth Thomas that he's a pillow-biting shirtlifter (You got a problem with that? We didn't think so.) was first reported in a homophobic agony aunt feature in The Daily Mail, we've awaited the other snigering schoolboy headlines from the real down-and-dirty tabs.

But the hedder in The Sun? Fackin' sublime.

For those who aren't fans of Little Britain, the Sun headline refers to the comedy series' character Daffyd Thomas, who lives in the Welsh mining village of Llanddewi Brefi, is a self-proclaimed gay man who dresses in a vast variety of tight PVC and latex rubber clothing and proudly proclaims that he is "the only gay in the village," when in fact, there is a huge gay community in his village and the surrounding area that he utterly refuses to associate with-- a background that could be a hint that The Sun was also commenting on Gareth Thomas' rugby colleagues.
