Caption Competition #4

Last week, we showed you this picture and asked you to come up with a suitable caption. As always we had lots of great answers, and once again we were tempted to have joint winners. Unfortunately, if we have too many joint winners there’s the possibility you may all become complacent and slack in your efforts, so we’re going to go with a solo winner this week in aid of furthering your competitive instincts. Think of it as helping evolution along.

So what caption won last week’s competition? That would be this one:

“Chris Atkins and Johnny Howorth’s next production went slightly beyond the realms of credibility.”

Tom W is the scribe behind this little gem. Chris Atkins and Johnny Howorth are the filmmakers behind the recent hoax footage of people supposedly murdering urban foxes. So funny and topical!

Special mentions go to Lucas Randall for this caption, and Simon Nurse for this one. We think they should get together and form a crime-fighting duo called ‘Randall and Nurse’. No? Well, suit yourselves…

Anyway, it’s that time again. No foxes this week, just two strange men. They are otherwise known as Mike Hall, president of the MSS, and Colin Harris, who is the person currently typing that name in the third person and trying not to feel too weird about it.

What should be the caption for the picture below?

    Let me guess, you have a homoeopathic left hand?

    “Actually the George Hrab look-a-like contest was last Saturday.”

    Mike: “Have you seen my cheese? I left it here somewhere.”
    Colin: “Mpff… Nope”

    “I’ll stand next to this box, you wink at the camera, and we’ll get loads of people to spend time looking at this picture desperately trying to search their brains for something competitively witty to say about it. It’ll be ace!”

    Colin felt Mike’s Fonzie impression needed work.

    Wahey! I won last week’s! Sweet!

    Now, my attempt for this week:

    “After 2 weeks of twice-daily dosing, the 30C homeopathic caffeine finally started to kick in.”

    Colin: Duuuude.
    Mike: Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude.

    The drugs were so strong that not only had he gone glassy eted but one of those glass eyes had just fallen out.

    Colin wasn’t quite convinced Mike had yet got the hang of ventriloquism.

    Colin couldn’t quite believe his friend Mike had become a vicar.
