Caption Contest February 2nd through February 8th, 2017
Posted By: goatsNdonkey, 02-01-2017, 07:14 PM

Welcome to the new Weekly Caption Contest!

All PF members are welcome to compose captions for the contest photo and submit them as replies to this post in this contest thread. You may submit more than one caption, but submit them in different reply posts. (Obviously, that may mean waiting enough time that the forum software doesn't merge them.)

All PF members, whether they submit captions or not, are welcome to vote for their favorite captions -- yes, that's captions, plural. Voting is done by "Liking" any post containing a caption you like enough to vote for, using the LIKE feature that is used for any other forum posting.

You can vote for/ like as many captions as you want, but you can't vote for/like a caption you submitted and you can't vote for/like any one caption more than once.

Sometime after midnight (Central Time, USA) on February 8th, I will count the votes and declare the caption with the most votes the winner. In the event of a tie, I will exercise my sacred moderator's responsibility and break the tie. The winning caption writer will inherit the responsibility of introducing the next weekly contest (with some accurate version of these rules) and posting the picture for it.

It is always a good idea to post a link to the new contest at the end of the one just finished, so that all of the die-hard captioning crowd can find the new contest as soon as possible and not go into caption composing withdrawal.

-- -- -- --

Now to the new picture. I know that is customary to post a picture one has taken, but, in combing through my picture files looking for something for the contest, I came across a folder of scans of pictures I used to buy at antique and junk shops. Some may have been taken by professional photographers, and some are obviously family snapshots. Each one I selected has something about it the suggested some kind of story behind it to me, or possibly many stories. I wish I could credit the original photographer for this image, but I can't. At least this one photograph he or she took is not forgotten. I hope you find it caption-inspiring.

that mean guy at the church tried drowning me by pouring water on my head

(side note: at the time of my son's birth I was doing Revolutionary War re enactment. I met folks who made costumes.

at the time of his baptism about 90 days after his birth, many folks came up to us and remarked about how nice the baptismal gown was and asked us how long the antique gown had been in the family

I told the truth - about 30 days

the folks I knew had made us one in the style of the late 1700's.)

Help, I heard that when they dress you like this, they intend pouring water on your head, and calling you names.

Only about a day and a half left, be sure to start voting for favorites, and there's still time to sneak in a few more caption entries before the end!

As the first few minutes of February 9th have come to my Central US Time Zone, this round of the caption contest must come to an end. A tally of the votes (likes) finds BigDave 's caption, copied here, the winner!

Let's all congratulate BigDave. I know I speak for others, too, when I say we're looking forward to his posting the next photo for captioning and to his hosting the next round of the contest as moderator!

The kid couldn't have looked more like Uncle Fester unless it had a lit light bulb in its mouth!
