By popular demand…. a caption competition

At a time of bad weather, dark nights and a general election campaign, there may be a case

for  a bit of light relief, so time for another caption competition.  This picture (suggested for the competition by Ken Batty, who is giving the oration) is from the degree ceremony at Regent’s University in July, when I was installed as a Honorary Senior Fellow.

As usual, the winner will be the reader who offers what in my view is the wittiest caption and most appropriate in the context of the picture.  The prize will be one of my recent publications.

    Is Ken reminding this year’s Musical Chairs finalists of the rules, having had to disqualify one contestant for sitting before the music stopped?

    There’s a clear binary choice for the public, yet now they expect legal contractural proof our fancy footwork is genuine. That’s unprecedented ‘prior’ to a vote, could be messy. Have they gone utterly mad?

    And finally the moment we have all been waiting form … Bring forth the Honorary celebratory cake!
