The 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.
