April’s winner

nortonobamaAs I have already decided which photograph to use for the next caption competition, I think I had better announce the winner of the April competition.  There were some fine entries.  DF Rostron deserves a commendation for a particularly clever entry.   I was anticipating some entries along the lines of: ‘It’s a pleasure to meet such a world renowned figure’.  ‘Well, thank you, Mr President’.   Tony Sands did not disappoint and in doing so came up with what I thought was the funniest entry.  Quite coincidentally, this is the second in a row in which the winning entry is the first one to be submitted.  He wins with:

” Oh really Barack, I get this all the time. Tell me a world leader who hasn’t read the Constitution in Flux and I might be interested!”

Well, it made me laugh.  Runner-up was MrJontyF with an entry that will resonate with my students.

As I know the winner already has a copy of The Voice of the Backbenchers, I will arrange for a copy of Eminent Parliamentarians to find its way to him.

    The aforementioned contribution from DF Rostron seems to have disappeared from the previous post. Did the bloke with a wand have anything to do with it, Lord Norton…or should I call you Mr Potter?

    tizres: It is still there; it is followed by my observation of ‘A nice one’. If it has disappeared from your screen, then perhaps we are in a different dimension…

      No, got it now, many apologies: you were anticipating something that was not actually written.

      Already lying down, ta.
