Caption Competition #18

Ahoy there, fellow skeptics! It’s been a while, due to scarcity of funny pictures and that life thing getting in the way. Hope you’ve all coped without your weekly diet of caption-hungry photographs?

The winner of our last competition is Wyn, who provided this caption:

Drug squad prepares for reclassification of meow meow.

Congratulations to Wyn. Your cheque for a million pounds is in the post.

As some or all of you may be aware, we recently streamed our latest episode of Skeptics With a K live, in conjunction with real-time interaction via twitter with our faithful fans. We not only streamed the audio but the visual, too, so you were able to see, thanks to the wonders of the internet, the complex technological juggernaut that is the recording of our popular podcast. It may have seemed like three blokes in a back bedroom talking cobblers, but that’s just because you all need glasses.

To celebrate that special episode of Skeptics With a K, we have two screengrabs of the recording itself, courtesy of Hayley Stevens of the British Anomalistic Research Society. Hayley is our Skeptics in The Pub speaker for tomorrow night at Liverpool Skeptics in The Pub, details of which can be found here. It will no doubt be a highly entertaining talk, which all of you should attend, especially if you entertain doubts about the way in which some paranormal investigators ‘investigate’…

You can leave your captions for either/or of the pictures, or both if you wish. The choice is yours. But leave them in the comments fields below if you can. It gets difficult to track entries that are left on Twitter.

So, you all know the score by now: what should be the caption for the picture(s) below?

    Mike. You have my permission to wear a hat, or turn off the 10,000 Watt bulb when recording.

    MSS launch new stealth weapon. The reflection is so bright that Colin goes deaf and Marsh falls unexpectently silent.

    This is why podcasts are audio only.
