The office. And the winner is….

002The entries for the latest caption competition were impressive, both quantitatively and qualitatively.  I was not expecting such a crop of excellent captions.  The result is that I have been spoilt for choice.

In terms of wit and appropriateness to the picture, I eventually narrowed it down, or at least reduced it, to nine.  After much deliberation – I took the entries home with me last night – I reduced it to four.   It was a close run thing, but I decided that the winner was Rich with:

‘Just move them where you like, there’s a chair under there somewhere’.

The three runners-up were:

D F Rostron with ‘The Norton View is blocked by books’.

Jack Grimston with: ‘I’m driving a forklift to the Med this year.  Need it to carry the holiday reading.’

mym with: ‘You wouldn’t believe how many political careers are buried under that lot’.

It was such a close-run thing that all those who submitted entries could consider themselves runners-up (and certainly contenders).  The only difference between you and the winner is that he gets a copy of one of my books for free…

If Rich would like to get in touch, I will arrange for his prize to be despatched.
