Angelina Jolie as Lara CraftOne of my colleagues thoughtfully left a copy of The Sun is the office loo today. Inside was a quite marvellous article outlining how Lara Croft is destroying relationships because men lust after her and not their girlfriends.

Our favourite tabloid is quite happy to print pictures of the voluptuous Lady Croft, both the live action and digital versions, while condemning her as a cyber marriage wrecker. The article is, of course, nonsense.

Ladies, Iโ€™ll let you into a secret. Any man whoโ€™d rather waggle away on his Playstation rather than have sex with you is either not worth having any more or has lost interest in you anyway. Consider it a lucky escape.
