CAPTION CONTEST Now through Feb 22, 2019
Posted By: gump, 02-15-2019, 01:58 PM

Rules:
Any forum member may invent and post a caption for the photo, posting the caption as a reply in this thread.
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.
At the end of the contest period, the host will count the votes and report who won. In case of a tie the host gets to break the tie, but will not otherwise submit a caption or vote.
The winner will be notified ASAP by the current host by PM and a post in the thread. The new host should post a link to the new contest thread at the end of the caption contest round just finished.
Submissions should be text (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 !
If the image is too big for you, edit your account "Settings and Options" for a smaller display size.

LAST DAY. Please record a "LIKE" if you have not already done so. I'm from Chicago so vote more than once, it will remind me of home. If there is a tie, I am required to pick the winner and that will cause a delay as I sort out the bribes. Don't procrastinate "like" now!

We had a tie between SpecialK and aslyfox. As that left the deciding of a winner to me I ran a complex program that eliminated any bias, I flipped a coin under controlled conditions, I had only one cup of coffee. The winner, aslyfox, has been notified. Thanks to everyone from Lizard and me.

Sheez, at least you could have let me do the OFFICIAL announcement first. I will keep this mind when I flip the next coin and use the Special one. (Special one, get it?)
