There is a moment in just about every workday when we come across something sexy, gratuitous and completely pointless that we wish we could post but don't under the auspices of there being nothing lesbian about it and often there being no redeeming value.

Saunders and Lumley carried the torch through the Kensington and Chelsea areas of London to screaming throngs of fans. The Absolutely Fabulous Olympics special aired Wednesday on Logo.

Here are Eds and Pats in all of their Olympics glory. Cheers sweetie-darlings!
