Benedict Cumberbatch flips a bird. And the internet LOVES it. (SCOOP IT)
EDIT: The source of this picture (http://theta-doctor.tumblr.com/) has posted that the real cause for this 'flip' was NOT the Autograph Sellers that beseiged him; instead it was a friend of Mr Cumberbatch's who was joking about how the mob had surrounded him. Apparently his words to the Autograph Sellers were, ‘You already have my autograph, but there are a lot of people here that don’t, so just stop [pushing to the front].’ Which is really rather polite. [Lordy, this is a tangle of at *least* three different accounts of what happened, so I hope I have this right now!]
Anyway, this picture has gone viral. It's been reblogged thousands of times already, and it's only been online for a few hours. Yup. The internet *loves* this picture. Oh, and the attitude.
Two credits: Mr Cumberbatch for flipping off and theta-doctor for capturing it.
