This was very popular at another forum I visit... I post a picture and you write your own caption. The poster of the picture picks the winning caption and the winner can post his own picture (or if you're too lazy I can post more). Submit as many as you like and hopefully we can have some more laughs around here!

And the photo is:

Ok! Decisions decisions...

I really enjoyed the originality of Grendel's 'Nf3' and its chess context, hehe.

However, I couldn't go past FG7's first post... that really made me laugh, with its pure randomness and off-the-wall style.. (with at least four different funny things embedded within the one sentence!) so I declare Firegoat7 the winner.

-1st FG7 'Look, I know this is a bad time to visit but can I use your phone...I think I've had my car stolen'

-2nd Grendel 'Nf3'

-3rd JGB 'ohhh come on Dad, is our dinner warm yet? Im starving!'


So FG7, it's your choice, you can post a picture of your choice here in the next day or so, or if you prefer, I can post another.

OK.. wow this was tough to judge. I almost went the other way for first and second and was close to including quotes that didn't quite make it, so you all deserve a pat on the back.

However, the judging must proceed, here we go:

-1st arosar "GB: Bless me Father - for I have no idea what I do.
Pope: FMD! Not this idiot. No wonder I'm dying."

-2nd Recherche "The Pope begins to regret his lifelong anti-contraception stance."

-3rd eclectic "Thank God he's not playing for my team the Conclave Cardinals !!"

Congrats Amiel! I'll give you a couple of days to post a picture of your own, alternatively if the time lapses I'll do another, or if you let me know before then.

Speaking about blending into the tiles, I remember when I first saw Terminator II, which was a quantum leap in special effects in its time. My jaw hit the floor when Robert Patric (is that his name?), who played the bad Terminator, blended into a black-and-white tiled floor and reformed once someone had walked over him. From memory, I think T2 was the first of the modern "big budget" films.

a) that the Stormtroopers would considerl what was "in their hands" to be so small as to call them "threads"... and

b) that they can get their Wizz to Fizz!! :lol:

(I used to buy a confectionary called "Wizz Fizz" as a child, if I recall correctly it had pictures of Disney characters on the packet. It was basically a sherbert powder that you ate with a little plastic spoon. I never tried wizzing on it though, although I am sure it would have fizzed if I had! ;) :lol: )

Late entry(perhaps more sardonic than humorous):

After the PR nightmare for McDonalds following "Super Size Me", millions of people around the world stopped eating McDonalds. The growing healthy eating campaign in the US to fight the obscene levels of obesity, combined with the new tax on fatty foods, meant that revenues had plummeted.

Subway bought out McDonalds, but its mascot, the smiling clown, the face of Subway's sworn nemesis, had to go. Ronald was out of a job. Now that he was stigmatised the world over as a symbol of one of the West's biggest killers - heart disease - Birdy, Grimace and Hamburglar didn't want to play with him any more. Ronald had nowhere to turn for solace, except to cigarettes, booze and poker machines, where he frittered away the little cash he had left. He'd had to sell the Macmobile and his estate to go towards the damages awarded to the class actions against him. So here he was, with all his worldy possessions carried in the supermarket trolley in front of him, sneered at by all those he passed.

Yes, things had certainly gone downhill for Ronald.

Lyrics by "Rythym Activisim":
Ronald F***ing McDonald
Rhythm Activism


Ronald F***ing McDonald
smokes alot of cigarettes
curses all the kids
who tug at his pants!

he's no hamburger huckster
he's an honest man
but he wears the same costume,
like the real McClown!

he gets drunk in public
drinks the worst rot-gut
tells all the McManagers
to go get f****ed!

(chorus)
he's Ronald F***ing McDonald
that's his legal name!
Ronald F***ing McDonald
Ronald F***ing McDonald
that's his legal name!

(chorus repeated)
he's Ronald F***ing McDonald
that's his legal name!
Ronald F***ing McDonald
Ronald F***ing McDonald
that's his legal name!

Ronald F***ing McDonald
hates fries and burgers
hates all McJunkfood
it makes him want to murder!

Ronald F***ing McDonald
his skin is sickly white
he pukes under the arches
he's not a pretty sight!

Ronald F***ing McDonald
is no happy clown
he's a walking horror show
he brings all the kids down!

(chorus)
he's Ronald F***ing McDonald
that's his legal name!
Ronald F***ing McDonald
Ronald F***ing McDonald
that's his legal name!

(chorus repeated)
he's Ronald F***ing McDonald
that's his legal name!
Ronald F***ing McDonald
Ronald F***ing McDonald
that's his legal name!

AND THERE'S NOTHING MCDONALD'S CAN LEGALLY DO TO STOP HIM Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!

Members of Australia's team are frustrated by the necessary use of gloves at the wicket. While it serves a purpose in protecting the hands, it has made it difficult to scratch those 'itcy areas'.

While the ACB and the Players' union have at this stage not been able to come up with an alternative, players in a show of team spirit prove that they players do work together.

Perhaps a distrurbing element to this trend, is that players are placing bets on this occurence, and the contiuning problem of mobile phone abuse has been linked to the issue.

This pic reminds me of something Arthur C Clarke wrote after being asked to judge a jingle-writing contest for Carnation Milk. He said the judges were unanimous in choosing the best entry but were equally unanimous that it could never be used:

Dear Family members,

In light of this sorry state of affairs we can see in the attached image, it has been made mandatory for all attending this year's gathering to heed the words of our ancestor; " A horse's back is good enough henceforth for Mulga Bill."

Please ensure that you bring sufficient feed for your horse, and advise as to head of horse to be expected to:

Top Paddock, above Deadman's Creek, Eaglehawk ( 3556 ),

Yours sincerely, Helen Johnston ( nee Bill )

Secretary, Family Society of Mulga Bill's descendents

Hard to choose!

Had to laugh at Gattaca’s entry- I award him an honourable mention.
Good comeback by Mischa.
Liked the topicality of Axiom’s entry.
Liked the silliness and brevity of 442s pizza delivery boys driving at breakneck speed… klyall’s parking attendant notice, Rincewind’s blouse. Also liked the longer stories as this pic suited them too.
They were all pretty good, just can’t go through them all!

I’m awarding first prize to the alcohol powered cars of ElevatorEscapee- funny and made sense. Over to you. :)

You know ,Belthasar,that is a pretty weird photo...I mean whats with "Harry"'s make-up?...and the expressions on their faces...he looks like he is on ecstasy and she looks like has just emerged from an opium den!
Either that or there's something pretty strong in "the goblet of fire":eek: :lol:

Well for what its worth,here's my caption...coutresy of Captain and Tanielle...
"Do that to me one more time,once is never enough".;)
