Caption Competition #6

Last week we showed you this photograph of what appears to be the home of a cyberman in a leafy suburb.

Amidst the accusations of cyberman-dressing-denialism aimed at Hayley Stevens, who graciously supplied the photo, there were some good answers this week.

Lard supplied this disconcertingly real parody of the kinds of letters paranormal investigators must hate receiving:

“hi my name is Angela and im sending yuou this photo becuase i like yoiur site and your alwats have good ghost pictures this picture was takem by my mother as a picture of some nice greenry and plants she thought was nice but in the window is a ghost figure that wasnot there when the picture was taken.The house where the picture was taken was where some one may have died once and there was no one in the house wehn the picture was took. you can see the ghost is wearing old silver cloths like they did in olded times and a old hat or something.”

Spelling mistakes most likely intended.

Lard came very close to winning, but the verisimilitude of the woo in ‘Angela”s letter unfortunately just made us depressed, so we had to cheer ourselves up with a more upbeat caption (never let it be said that we’re fickle).

In the end, we decided to hand the trophy to Lucas Randall for this entry:

“Shit – did I just hear The Doctor?”

Well done, Lucas.

So, from cybermen to crustaceans now, as we bring you this photograph of Merseyside Skeptic and InKredulous host, Andy Wilson, enthusiastically showing off a lobster:

What should be the caption for the picture below?

    Don’t you just hate it when someone sneaks up behind, pulls some silly face and ruins the photo?

    “Raaarrr! Fear my non-organic, high salt lobster Mike Adams! You batshit crazy freak.”

    “… and if your skeptical brain doesn’t believe it’s frakkin claws hurt, do your own experiment and stick your finger in there – I dare you!”

    Andy gets carried away at the recent “Skeptics at the seaside” meet-up.
