Weekly Caption Contest
Posted By: Kerrowdown, 01-27-2021, 06:32 AM

This contest runs until the 3rd February 2021@11:00 GMT.

Usual/normal instructions copied and pasted across.

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.

IMPORTANT:

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.

Ok many thanks to all who both viewed and participated in my wee piece of frivolity... time to pick this weeks winner.

My three finalists in no particular order are:

noelcmn - The ladies were ecstatic when the New Order of the Knights of Touch were introduced to the public!

MSL - "Please do not touch" - Kerrowdown is inside secretly taking photos

aslyfox - "where can I get my own" "please do not touch sign?"

After deliberation... I'm gonna go with MSL and his "Please do not touch" - Kerrowdown is inside secretly taking photos... as the winner.

News Flash News Flash News Flash News Flash

The old Kerrowdown's having a senior moment... the winner of this goes on number of likes and not hosts choice.

I'll go and stand in the naughty corner facing the wall, after announcing that the correct winner all along was actually with four likes...

aslyfox with "where can I get my own" "please do not touch sign?"

Forgive me folks.

Well as the incorrectly nominated monarch, maybe I should be the kingmaker?

@aslyfox As stated at in the first line "This contest runs until the 3rd February 2021@11:00 GMT."

Late submission of likes, will therefore in the this tie break induced instance not be accepted... my non senior moment declaration stands, the subsequent winner is as stated.

drum roll... as at 11:00 GMT today aslyfox has it... by a majority likes win!
