Caption Competition #2

Hello again, caption creators! We got a great response for our first edition of the Caption Competition. It’s been very difficult to choose a winner from the treasure trove of wit sent our way, but after much debate and drama we whittled it down to two, who will be the joint winners of our very first Caption Competition.

The winners are:

Philby63, with this imaginative and athletic offering:

“After being harangued for twenty minutes with a bizarre and sometimes violent diatribe on why Jim Morrison was the reincarnation of Rameses II, David Aaronovitch responds in the only possible manner – by recreating the haunting, diaphragmic scream of a dying manatee.”

Bill Blunt, with this shorter but no less funny offering:

“For some reason, David had imagined the endoscope would be a little smaller.”

Congratulations to both of them. Special mention should go to Hayley, Paul Smout, Jon D and Matthew Partridge, who all came very close to winning.

So here we are again, with another photograph for you, this time featuring our very own Mike Hall and Michael Marshall. Train your caption-creating synapses upon the photograph below:

    Although Jimmy the pap was thrilled to be invited to the cocktail party and hoped to meet many celebs, his camera was instantly drawn to Mr. Marsh’s crotch of many wonders.

    His courage fuelled after a 30c dilution of homoeopathic vodka, it finally dawns upon Marsh that Mike is actually a very attractive man… Would the camera capture his wistful, loving glance?

    After Mike & Marsh realised that the camera crew was not due to arrive until another hour, they politely asked their stalker to stop filming their crotch and leave.

    ‘If we stand still long enough, Mike, he may go away and I can carry on kicking your a**e on Final Fantasy VII.’

    Despite Mikes wit and Marsh’s good looks, nothing can sway the camera man away from filming the important medical breakthrough, “highly diluted nothing…”

    Despite the appearance of Kuato for the camera, Marsh still wasn’t inclined to get his ass to Mars.

    Michael, you idea of starting up a new techno-religion was brilliant!

    Marsh: “His batteries don’t really last long enough, although a toaster would have been more reliable, but mono- functionality is sooo last year”

    Mike: “I may go for a Debanam’s list for my wedding gifts”

    Marsh: “playin’ it safe”

    Mike: “No I just can’t see the need for ‘one of those'”

    Marsh: “I haven’t shown you the ‘executive options’ pack”
