‘This boy’s a fool’…

maxresdefaultThe entries for the October caption competition demonstrated readers’ wit and attention to detail.  Several produced entries based on Anthony Barnett’s hand gesture, others the look on my face, and one or two very individual observations.  I thought some of those based on the hand gesture were especially innovative.

Not for the first time, choosing a winner was difficult.  It was a close run thing between several entries.  However, based on those which made me laugh most the moment I saw them, there is a winner and a very close runner-up.  The latter may reflect my particular sense of humour.

I decided that the winner was barry winetrobe with:  Lord Norton thinks ‘This boy’s a fool’.

The runner-up is ken wilkinson with: ‘Lord Norton left shell-shocked after Mr Barnett’s glove puppet is caught streaking’.

The other entries were not far behind.  A copy of one of my books will shortly be on its way to the winner.

    Lord Norton, are you aware that this site’s header has gone walkies for at least a week?

    tizres: Yes, I thought the problem was with my access, but clearly it is not. I will get it attended to.
