Caption contest March 24 - 31
Posted By: MSL, 03-24-2021, 01:59 PM

Contest ends late evening EDT Wednesday March 31, 2021

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.

The Gentleman without cranial hair (YES, the BALD guy!), looking at the circle of books:
"Now, how the H___ did they DO that?"

---------- Post added 03-24-21 at 05:10 PM ----------

The circle of books suggests the phrase "going round in circles" - perhaps as a rebuttal of the usefulness of researching, and brings to mind on of my favourite stanzas of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam:

"
Myself when young did eagerly frequent
Doctor and Saint, and heard great Argument
About it and about: but evermore
Came out by the same Door as in I went."

Whether this post constitutes a valid entry into the comp I will leave to others to judge!

Dang it, Sydney - you just used 4 words to say what I said in over 50 words (including the quote)!

And that post of mine was meant to be two separate posts which the Forum system combined into one - where's that bottle!!

This series of books is an endless prequel/sequel. Once you start, you can never get to the end.

At her employment tribunal, Sophie said that she didn't see what the problem was. She was asked to stack the books in alphabetical order and did just that!

It is obvious the fellow does not have a loyalty card so he is being watched by security disguised as a book.

No, that's not gonna work. Sure this ring contains a ton of knowledge but it can't be used as a barrier against COVID spreading.

Bill only went in for a copy of the Hobbit but found out he was the Lord of the Ring.
