Caption Contest now to November 2nd
Posted By: gump, 10-27-2020, 02:54 AM

Contest ends at midnight on November 2, 2020

Any forum member may invent and post a caption for the photo 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 "Liking" them using the Forum's LIKE feature ('thumbs up" turns green when clicked). At the end of the contest period, the host will compare the votes and report who won. In the case of a tie, the Host will break the tie (possibly a third entry), but will not otherwise submit a caption or vote.

The winner will be notified ASAP by the current host by PM and posting the winner in this thread. The new Host should post a link in this thread to the new contest thread.

Submissions should be via text (no video or audio files) - any caption, limerick, motivational poem or verse or prose is permitted - whatever inspires you to describe the photo or catch attention. Contestants may submit more than one entry but it must be in a separate post for voting purposes.


Even if you do not submit an entry, please "like" any postings you feel deserve it as this is how the winner is chosen. If you DO SUBMIT an entry, please also find an entry that you like among your competitors efforts and "like" at least one of them as well. Enter often, vote more often, and most importantly, HAVE FUN !!! Remember, you can 'vote' for more than one entry if you choose to do so.

If the image is too big for you, edit your account "Settings and Options" for a smaller display size.

"Joey, dearest, when I told you to get a 'big barrel of beer' for the party, this wasn't what I had in mind... But we'll have to make do. Pull it up, boys! This ain't gonna drink itself!"

From the OSHA accident investigation report:
Lack of proper wheel chocking resulted in the forward movement of the trailer, causing the front jack post to bend and then collapse under the weight of 1,500 lbs of raw sewage. Victim #1 lost three toes as a result of the trailer frame settling on his foot. The crew leader suffered a major groin injury from the whiplash of the snapped load straps. The Chevy pickup sustained a bent bumper and hood when it impacted a tree, causing the driver to spill her beer. Two of the three bystanders were knocked to the ground by the rushing fluid flow from the collapsed tank, but were otherwise uninjured.

"I recon we should have listened to those Egyptians and used rollers rather than square logs to roll this thing on."

"You recon? Why not just turn it on it's side and roll it on?"

In a close finish, aslyfox, wins this caption contest and I trust is hard at work with the next challenge.

Story behind the photo. This is the water tank replacement at the RV park where we spent the winter 19-20. The fellow who organized the project, done by camper volunteers of a certain age, said the tank was about 400 pounds so the moving system did work well. The new tank had to have a temporary placement and plumbing as the old metal tank was removed. Then a new concrete base set. The final part, the placement of the new tank, as the plumbing was in place, took less than 4 hours. As my mechanical skills are completely invisible I was appointed photographer.
