Thanks to all who entered our latest Photo Caption Contest.
Since this contest offered both a photo and an image, we have a “great” grand prize winner to announce.
But before we begin, “chartz” submitted words to a song (courtesy of Sting) that we should all sing together to get us in the mood:
chartz (My apologies to Sting, but I don’t know how it could be said better.)
“Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I’ll be watching you
Every single day
Every word you say”
Thank you “chartz” for providing the opening soundtrack to our winner’s post.
Now we can begin the important business at hand.
Our “great” grand prize winner of both images is someone familiar to all contest regulars. He is an exceptionally gifted writer who continues his reign as the “Royal Caption King.”
Let’s hear some applause for Chris Henderson and his winning submissions!
Chris had two winners for the top photo:
Obama’s eyes don’t have an iris, just plenty of IRS.
Visine: Gets the Red Line out in Syria too.
For the “1984 poster” Chris submitted this important and winning observation:
The “fictional” book 1984: “Julia” works at the Ministry of Truth.
Obama: Created a fictional “Julia” for his “Life of Julia” campaign strategy video.
Coincidence? I think not!
Here are the Honorable Mention winners for the top photo:
RockThisTown, another of our “Royal Caption Kings” had three winners:
‘No one knows what it’s like, to be the bad man, behind brown eyes . . . ‘
If it’s true the eyes are the windows to the soul, we’re gonna need a lot of Windex.
“I have a vision . . . that my two children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the character of their political contacts.”
ZipCode (a Caption King in training and making tremendous progress) had these two winners:
Training two pupils how to look for spy’s.
New Government spy department, [ I. C. U.]
And then there is the great and powerful cfbleachers who submitted these winners:
This is the look when the teleprompter shuts off.
If the eyes are the windows to the soul…I guess that explains the vacant stare.
Here are the Honorable Mention winners for the 1984 poster:
1984? That’s the number of holes of Golf so far.
RockThisTown had another winner with this caption:
1984: Obama confuses Oceania with the Titanic.
(Editors Note: “Oceania” was the country in the book 1984, in case it has been a long time since your high school English class. I remember back in 1972 my teacher was grateful that this was one book I actually read, as opposed to my usual practice of only reading the Cliff Notes. And by golly… look how it came in handy 41 years later!)
See you all next time a photo is worthy of a Tatler Photo Caption Contest!
