Caption This 8


[Please submit a caption for this photo. See below for details]
London, Ontario, February 2007 [Click to enlarge]


Welcome to another exciting edition of Written Inc.'s Caption This extravaganza. This week, we focus on one of London's now-famous (well, sort-of-famous) murals. Come up with a caption for this photo (which I'll announce next week) and you, too, can enjoy entire minutes of fame and phantom fortune.

Oh, before I forget, let's end the suspense around last week's entry. It featured a forlorn picture of a green apple lying all by its lonesome in a parking lot. My son, Noah, provided accompanying banter from the open minivan door as I crouched down and captured the surreal scene.

I had so many wonderfully creative suggestions that I had a difficult time choosing just one. In the end, I had to make the call: The nod goes to Dave, aka Utenzi, who came up with this week's topper:
"I've escaped! Now what?"
This erudite research scientist from North Carolina manages to make uber-complex cutting-edge concepts understandable to dorks like me, and he mixes in equal parts great photography and straightforward views of the world around us. All in all, one of the most compelling ongoing reads in blogdom. Please stop by his site and congratulate him.

Your turn: Feeling doggy? Submit a funny caption for this image and come back next Sunday for the big announcement...and the next entry in this never-ending adventure. (And if you want to come back before next Sunday, I won't complain. Promise.)

"Countin' doggies on the wall, doesn't bother me at all. Playin' "sit - don't move at all!" With a flowerpot as well..."

Cheesy, but it's all I got.

Thanks, Carmi, for all the great stuff you offered on my latest post. I appreciate your words more than I think you know. :)

Anna said...

Wow, I am actually speechless and wondering who would paint two large poodles in a fake window on the side of a building?

Wait....is that a caption? :)

The nerve of some people to just let their humans run wild in the streets!!!

"Well my dear, can you imagine...some of them actually use a fire hydrant. How primitive."
Fun stuff, as always, Carmi.
Thanks for visiting my blog and your nice comments.

Round two and still nothing! I'm getting closer though... Perhaps later today the perfet caption will hit me.

And then again, maybe not!

"If we can't have a real window we'll have a painted one!"

Here in Wales, in Portmeirion, there's a painted window with a figure stood watching. It's a bit creepy. I have a photo of it here somewhere.

carli said...

Why is the flowerpot cracked if it hasn't been pushed out the window yet?

I don't think that's my caption. I think it's just an observation.

Bob-kat said...

I'm sorry Carmi, I'm not in a creative place at the moment :-(

Just popped by to say thanks for your suggestion. I hope they won't egt into my laptop though as I have put a password on it. Thanks again.

Here goes:

"Babette and Pierre...trapped in a two-dimensional Twilight Zone."

or

"Betcha five biscuits that pit bull smashes his head trying to catch us."

Are two entries a violation of the rules?

Rainbow dreams said...

"do you think they've guessed we're only painted?....."

what an interesting place you live in :)

craziequeen said...

[to the familiar tune of 'how much is that doggy in the window?']
'How real are those doggies in the window?'

Came here for the caption contest, Carmi.

Pearl said...

Don't tell me to not know the flowerpot Petunia. I am not the one with so little self control as to wet the carpet.


Ok, so that's realllly long for a caption.

kristin said...

I hope these passers-by know we are both considered "Upper Class Poodles".

(Personally, I liked the one that said "How much is that doggie in the window?")

carli said...

thought of this walking down the stairs to the train. . . not sure why. . . and I found out this morning I'm ALLERGIC to dogs.

"No, no, no. I said, 'panting'--not 'painting'."
