There were some remarkably varied and inventive entries for the Christmas caption competition. I was spoiled for choice in selecting a winner. I enjoyed both entries by Tony Sands, not least his first which some may think was at attempt at flattery (and therefore was a strong contender). Others built on the Christmas theme. However, in the end, I narrowed it down to three before selecting the runner up and the winner. The runner-up was barry winetrobe with ‘Is this what “The Scream” would have looked like had Edvard Much had been happier?’ which made me laugh. The entry that I thought the funniest in the context of the picture, and is therefore the winner, is Gerry McMahon with:
‘Yet another former boy band attempts to return for a final tour, I just hope they can still do the dance moves’
I did reflect on the fact that my singing would empty a room quicker than shouting ‘fire’ and my dance moves would be seen as bizarre were I ever to do any, but then hearing and looking at some boy bands…
If the winner would like to get in touch, a prize will be in the post.
