Caption Competition #5

Spring Break

Paul occupies himself during spring break

This photograph was taken during Spring Break of March 2004. My son Paul is the one that appears to be holding up one gigantic rock. It will be interesting to read the captions you come up with because I can’t think of any right now.

Rachel eating Turkish Delight

Rachel eating Turkish Delight

The first prize (Kaysville and environs only) is a 51 gram Fry’s Turkish Delight bar. Turkish Delight is the addictive confection to which Edmund Pevensie succumbs in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis. Sales of Turkish Delight rose following the theatrical release of the film version of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. This is your chance to find out what Turkish Delight tastes like and if it is really addictive.

Rachel agreed to model the Turkish Delight. After eating one bar she wanted to also eat the bar that has been reserved for first prize. Perhaps these Turkish Delights are addictive after all. Well now, write a caption at your own risk.

The judging of this latest competition passes from Judge Jill to Judge Jake. I expect we will run the competition for two weeks. Even if you are not local we will still be delighted to hear from you. However, we cannot mail prizes because there is no money left in the budget. Turkish Delights don’t come cheap you know.

Caption Competition #4

Daniel holding a cows head in MongoliaThis photograph was taken in Choibalsan, Mongolia. Those who have been following Daniel here will have already seen the picture. There are a lot of possible captions that come to mind but Judge Jill says for me to let the readers submit their captions first.

Ice Breakers sours

Paul with the tempting Sours that could be in your mouth shortly

The first prize (Kaysville and environs only) is a 1.5oz tin of Hershey’s sugar free Ice Breakers sours. I’ve never had any but my son Jake says “that they are worth writing a caption for.”

Judge Jill donated the prize and she will be the sole decider of the winner. I have been relegated to just the production of this grand media event.

In a week, maybe two, I will post the winning caption. Even if you are not local we still like to hear from you. However, we cannot mail prizes. This is a low budget operation, really low budget.

I hope that doesn’t sour you on participation.

Caption Competition #3 Winner

Sean on the range

Sean, when he is not writing captions, likes to spend time outdoors

As judges, mine and Jill’s captions were excluded from the competiton. Thank you all for the funny and insightful captions.

Sean is this week’s caption winner.

  • First — “And that’s when Steven found out what Soylent Corn on the Cob was made out of…” Sean
  • Second — Me: “Oh. So when you said ‘Delete the files for backup’ what you meant was I just needed to clean up my files before the backup ran? My bad!”
    Seven minutes earlier: “I found the coolest command – it deletes a whole folder as if it never existed. I thought it sounded way more fun than deleting each individual file.” Adelaide
  • Third — “Hey Steven, where did you leave Aurora?” Melissa

Caption Competition #3

Steven and Adelaide eating corn
There are a lot of possibilities for funny captions whenever there is a photograph of Steven. Here Steven is at his parents’ home for Sunday dinner with his wife Adelaide. Submit your captions and I will update this post with the winning lines.

Jill holding sweetearts

First prize are Sweetheart Cookies, beautiful model not included

The first prize (Kaysville and environs only) was going to be a big bar of Hershey’s chocolate. But that got ate. Jill came up with a one pound bag of Stauffer’s Sweethearts Cookies as the prize. Just in time for Valentines Day.

Caption Competition #2 Winners

As judges, mine and Jill’s captions were excluded from the competiton. Thank you all for the funny captions.

The first place winner, Ken, I do believe is not local so the prize passes to the second place caption. However, Derek, who lives in Texas is not local either so the prize goes to the third place entry. And Darrell is definitely local — he lives in the same ward as I do.

First — “Grandad, I don’t want to frighten you but there’s a Giant Shredded Wheat right behind you.” Ken
Second — “You stole the Thin Mints?!” Derek
Third — “Grandpa, I can’t believe how bad our outfits clash!” Darrell

Caption Competition #2

Rick and Aurora

Test your caption writing skills on this photograph of me with my granddaughter Aurora. I will update this post with the winning captions. For the last caption competition there were no prizes. However, this time the first prize (Kaysville and environs only) is a box of Haviland Orange Creme Thin Mints. Haviland Orange Creme Thin MintsThe mints were originally intended for our New Year’s Eve party but I spirited them away for such a time as this.

OK people, let loose with your humor and originality.
