PF Photo Caption Contest for week of December 10 - 17, 2016

PF Photo Caption Contest for the week of December 10th -17th, 2016

(Bonus - you can start immediately 12/9/16 if you choose to do so, no need to wait for the official start of 12/10)

Welcome to the next round of PF's weekly photo caption contest! All forum members are welcome to vote for their favourites among the submitted captions, and members who submit captions are encouraged to vote for other submissions they also like. In fact you can vote for as many captions as you want in each round; however, since voting is done by "LIKING" the post including a caption you want to vote for, the system will not let you vote more than once for any caption or vote for your own caption submissions.

At the end, I'll do a quick tally up and the one with the most likes is the winner. If there is a tie, I will cast the "Chairpersons vote".

The winner will thus earn the distinct and high honour of submitting the photo for the next photo contest round and of moderating that round.

Enjoy this weeks contest, please pardon the distortion caused by photographing through the glass window of the enclosure

"now, now, settle down, did that big bad photographer scare you?

It's ok, he can't hurt you I'll protect you"

[be advised that any "likes" awarded to this caption are welcomed but will not count for the contest since I am the judge for this week]

ok, folks, we are getting down to the "nitty gritty" as some people say. Contest will end on 12/17 at midnight my time (Central Time USA - same as Chicago IL USA)

We need more captions and more votes for likes - 3 of the existing captions have received the same number of "likes" so we have a tie. I will, according to the rule only vote to break any tie at the end of the challenge.

so if you haven't voted by clicking likes among the existing captions please do so. If you want to add a new caption, please do so.

If you are viewing this, please add a caption and vote .

Please remember that votes for the caption I submitted are appreciated but WILL NOT be counted to determine the winner of the challenge.

two posters have noted that:

"thread seems to be in the Games category rather than the weekly challenges area".

not sure how that happened, i think I followed the instructions I received as to how to set it up

sorry about that if it is an error

Allen

ok folks time is running out and we still have a tie

if that continues, I will cast the deciding vote, and I can be bribed (either a K 1 or the 150 - 450 zoom would do nicely)

There will be no filibuster, no parliamentary fooling around, a decision will be made sometimes after the "polls" closes at midnight my time tonight.

We have a winner

Drum Roll please

we have a winner

as expected, my caption received no "likes"

two others were tied so I have to cast the deciding vote

"A man's Got to know his limitations" is a hint

the winner is the person who brought a Clint Eastwood movie role to mind ("Right turn Clyde"):

Harry the Wombat

"When the Keeper brings dinner, Clyde will move on your signal."


congrats to all who played along
