And the winner is….

064It has been difficult deciding the winning entry for the caption  competition.  I narrowed it to a long list of eight.  There were some especially clever plays on words and/or links to earlier posts.  (Jonathan’s entry was a winner in linking to earlier discussions.)   I avoided one or two that may give rise to controversy (e.g. ‘short and tall, thin and fat’) when applied to the picture.  I decided to go for the one that seem to fit especially well with the actual picture. 

The winner is Daniel Wood with:

‘Hull Mafia Recruitment Drive – Pick up a free flyer for information on how to apply’.

With the runners-up being:

genorm with ‘Honestly it’s fun packed – just wait until you see page 3!’

[Not sure if I should mention that page 3 deals with the decline of legislatures.]

Rob Falconer with ‘They’re selling well – everyone thinks it’s the Big Issue’.

I decided against Andrew’s ‘The boys were shocked to find that although the book was modest in size, the references to Norton’s previous works were not’ on the grounds that, knowing my students, they would not be shocked at all.

I shall arrange for the winner to receive a copy of the 2nd edition of Parliament in British Politics, assuming he hasn’t already rushed out to buy a copy.

    Isn’t there some sort of law against making fun of your students in this way?

    Haha. Good thing there isn’t (& please do keep it that way). I’m sure all three will be delighted to be reminded of that photo in 20 years time, after all, it will still be out there, unless they are very good at hiding themselves…
