Now for something geniunely important

A new Lara Croft has been born:
An unknown sales assistant and model has been plucked from obscurity to become the new international public face of action hero Lara Croft.

Karima Adebibe, 20, from Bethnal Green, east London, was chosen following a worldwide search for a roving ambassador to represent Lara for the launch of the next video game.

The Top Shop assistant will be the latest name to represent the archaeologist and action hero since Angelina Jolie starred as Lara in the Tomb Raider movies.

Adebibe will travel the globe for the next two years as the public face of the game, whose previous ambassadors include Nell McAndrew.

The self-confessed tomboy will embark on a gruelling training programme, including an SAS survival, combat and semi-automatic weapon-firing course in Eastern Europe. She will also take a crash course in archaeology, deportment, elocution and etiquette lessons so she can portray the 11th generation Countess.

Adebibe said: "This is an incredible opportunity for me and one which I plan to grasp with both hands.

"It's a huge challenge to follow in the footsteps of people like Nell McAndrew and Angelina Jolie, but life is all about challenges and this is perhaps the biggest one for a model and actress."
I have a very good feeling. Good things will come of this.

Yes, indeed.
