Caption Competition #3

Once again, it was difficult to choose a winner from last week’s competition so we’ve another joint win for you this week. Last week we showed you this picture and asked you to come up with a caption for it. We got a lot of entries, mostly involving Marsh’s crotch, but we were never going for highbrow with that picture.

The two winning entries were from John, who posted first with this caption:

“It was considered important that the new tory mp had actually met a black man…”

And from Michael, with this lengthy imaginary conversation between Mike and Marsh:

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 Debenham’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.”

Special mention goes to Adam, Jo and LucasRandall, who all came close to winning.

No crotch-related imagery in this week’s picture, at least we don’t think so. You may prove us wrong. Get your imagination ready.┬áHere’s this week’s picture, from

    Usually a staunch Tory supporter, Mr Fox finally broke under the pressure of irreconcilable internal conflict between his desire to vote conservative, and his fondness for not being the target of barbaric hunting practices.

    After whacking their rabbit minions, he now waits patiently for his kill-shot to take down the leader of the hunting hounds.
