Battle Of The Titans, or: Mmmm...Sacrilicious!

Pagans have hit out at a 180ft drawing of Homer Simpson painted in a field next to their famous fertility symbol in Dorset- the Cerne Abbas giant.
The 17th century chalk outline of the naked, sexually aroused, club-wielding giant is believed by many to be a symbol of ancient spirituality.
Many couples also believe the 180ft giant, which is carved in the hillside above Cerne Abbas, Dorset, is an aid to fertility.The giant drawing of Homer, brandishing a doughnut, was painted next to the well-endowed figure in a publicity stunt to promote The Simpsons Movie released later this month, reports Sky News.
It has been painted with water-based biodegradable paint which will wash away as soon as it rains.
Ann Bryn-Evans, joint Wessex district manager for The Pagan Federation, said: "It's very disrespectful and not at all aesthetically pleasing.
"We were hoping for some dry weather but I think I have changed my mind. We'll be doing some rain magic to bring the rain and wash it away."
She added: "I'm amazed they got permission to do something so ridiculous. It's an area of scientific interest."
