Caption Competition #20

Greetings and salutations from the Caption Competition department! We hope you’ve all had a great Christmas and New Year. Our last picture was of a decidedly Christmassy nature and we got some great responses. However, the clear winner was also the first entry to hit the stands. Clear, to the point, and it had a good pun. We like a good pun. It was from Rich, and it was this:

No room at the bin.

Well done, Rich! We hope winning this competition has made your Christmas ever so slightly more Christmassy. It probably hasn’t, but then Santa doesn’t exist so someone’s got to put the effort in, haven’t they? Next year, we’re going to deliver copies of The God Delusion down the chimneys of unsuspecting houses. Or something by Jane Austen just to fuck with people’s heads. Either way, we’re going to own Christmas next year!

So, slightly later than intended, here is the latest Caption Competition, with added furriness. What should be the caption for the picture below?

    This is from a colleague of mine, so don’t blame me!

    The coalition leaders today decided to dress up for their new campaign entitled “Poor people, don’t breed like rabbits, the rich can’t afford it.” In a drive to reduce skyrocketing numbers of pregnancies in the unemployed, the ConDem government today began a state controlled directive aimed at sterilising the unemployed and their children by offering cream eggs laced with sterilising drugs.

    A Spokesperson for the Conservative Party said “This simply has to be done, over-breeding in the unemployed is putting a huge burden on rich, it’s not like we can put them into workhouses anymore.”

    A Spokesperson for the Liberal Party said “Whatever the Conservative spokesperson said.”

    A Spokesperson for the Labour Party said “They’re simply rehashing an idea that was talked about under the Blair government.”

    A Spokesperson for the Green Party wanted to know if the cart was made from recycled materials

    That has to be the most complex caption entry so far! Good though!

    Marsh distracts the Milliband brothers so that they don’t notice the “WARNING! BLAZING OIL RIG AHEAD” sign.

    Daily Mail: “Squirrels now going to dell in a handcart. Probably foreign as well.”
