Caption Contest 17 Feb - 23 Feb 2018
Posted By: NickDB, 02-17-2018, 02:24 AM

Contest is open immediately

The current "thread starter" is the moderator for this week's round of the contest. The moderator must post an original photo at the start of the thread.

Any forum member may invent and post a caption for the photo, posting the caption as a reply in the thread. (More details about submission rules follow below.) All readers of the thread, including those posting captions, are encouraged to vote for any and all of the captions they appreciate by "LIKEing" them using the forum's LIKE feature. (Note that this feature prevents a person from voting for one's own caption.)

At the end of the contest period, the moderator will count the votes and report who won. In case of a tie the moderator will permitted to place a vote to break the tie, except for that situation the moderator will not be participating in either submitting a caption or voting.

After determination of the contest's winner, that winner will be notified ASAP by the current Moderator/Thread Starter/Contest Host and will become responsible for introducing and moderating the next contest round. The new "thread starter" must post an original photo at the start of the new thread in the "Weekly Challenge" sub-forum category. It is helpful to regular contest participants if the new moderator posts a link to the new contest thread at the end of the caption contest round just finished.

*** Submissions can be in any written form (no video or audio files) — caption, limerick, motivational, poem or prose — whatever inspires you to describe the photo or catch attention. Submit by replying to the thread. Contestants may submit more than one entry but it must be in a separate post

Important:

Even if you do not submit an entry, please “like” any posts you feel deserve it as this is how the winner is chosen. And if you DO submit an entry, please also find an entry that you like from among your competitors' efforts and "like" that one as well. Enter often, vote more often. and most important: Have fun !

Your current moderator is NickDB
Contest and voting ends sometime on Feb 23rd 2018, probably around midday Central Africa time.

Most importantly: Have fun!

Background to this shot : In South Africa, some schools still maintain colonial traditions of "new pots" or "fags" (can't say that anymore...) or rather "mentees" who do odd jobs for the seniors. But really it is the seniors' jobs to look after the new guys. My son, the taller one, was a prefect and so had the privilege of three new slaves (sorry, youngsters) to take care of. The youngest kid in the school happened to be one of his guys and tradition has it that he has to wear the uniform of the sister school for a while. I wonder what he is thinking? Do you?

Athos, Porthos, Aramis and even Milady de Winter are all in place. But where is the d'Artagnan?

So, maybe we are the school newbies
Finding our way at St Screwbies
But the uniform's tight
And it's not a delight
To find it comes fitted with boobies!

OK guys and girls, it's Friday 23rd and entries are closed and voting is over. There were a couple of good ideas this week, but as is the way of things, the highest vote count went to SpecialK for his clever comment. So I formally hand over the baton to SpecialK for the next caption-worthy image. Thanks to all who participated!
Nick
