Making like a sheep  
So this is always fun:

1. Reply to this post with 'hit me', and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee. And there should always be icon glee!

sparrowsverse asked about these:

1. It's from the BBC show Top Gear, one of the presenters James May, aka Captain Slow, who has a fantastic way of saying 'oh cock' when things go wrong, and this icon is perfect for those situations! It's by the talented Red Scharlach, as is No. 3.

2. This is Long Distance Clara from Pigeon Street, a cartoon I used to love as a kid. I kind of wanted to be Clara when I grew up because she was a long-distance lorry driver (hence her name!) which seemed like a really cool job to six year old me. Now I think she's a trailblazing feminine icon, doing a male job back in the late seventies/early eighties when this aired originally. Here she is in action (sound quality's not so good, but it's the only one on youtube):

3. Who doesn't love Blackadder? I love Melchett, in all his incarnations, and this is just another great quote from that classic series. good for light hearted name calling.

4. &5. which are linked so I'll talk about them together. The Champions is one of my favourite shows (I even mod a comm - champions_fans) and I don't ship often, but I do ship Craig/Richard, the two gentlemen pictured. Together with Sharron they make my OT3. 4. is just silliness and me viewing a particular scene with slash goggles on, and 5. kind of speaks for itself, the boys just had such a perfect look of confusion on their faces that I had to use it for that. Richard is on the left and Craig's on the right in the dark polo neck sweater for those who've never seen it. And if you haven't, you should, especially if you like the better known cult 60's TV shows like The Avengers, Man from UNCLE etc.

Having thoroughly examined your icons, I want to steal 70% of them! Picking some of these for awesomeness rather than need for explanation! But, anyway:

And because it made me cry and smile at the same time when I saw it:

Ok, picking for epic win/desire to see them pimped rather than need for explanation:
