Happy New Year to readers. I thought I would get the year off to a flying start by announcing the winner of the Christmas caption competition. It was a difficult choice. The entries were strong in number and quality, with a late flurry of some good entries. However, I have made a choice. By a short head, the winner is MrJontyF with:
‘And for future reference, the cake should be THIS big’.
Regular readers will understand the context. Anyway, I thought it was very good.
There are two runners-up:
barry winetrobe with: ‘If you want your hands to look as smooth and clean as mine, become an academic or peer – or both!’
Wenbo Chen with: ‘I don’t have any more philosophical arguments up my sleeve on this issue.’
Many thanks to everyone who entered. I think I can deduce from MrJonty F’s e-mail address who he is and will arrange to present his prize shortly. The runners-up will also receive a prize, albeit not as weighty.
