New Photo Caption Contest: ‘This is not a movie’


In response to the tragic news that a meteorite struck Russia resulting in damage and injuries, Drudge Report posted the caption, “This is not a movie,” under the photo that is the subject of our latest Tatler Photo Caption Contest.

Now, as always, I am confident that Tatler fans can, and will, write much better ones.  However, there is a theme to our current contest.

Besides a meteorite striking Russia, consider all the other cosmic events that have occurred today and in the last few days:

Lightning struck the Vatican just hours after the Pope announced his resignation. (The subject of our last photo caption contest and here are the winning entries in case you missed the post.)

This afternoon, an asteroid had a record breaking pass by planet Earth, the closest and largest ever recorded.

And now, late today, there are reports that a space rock crashed into Cuba.

So what is the meaning of it all?

Are these four events only a coincidence or is there something more. (Cue Twilight Zone music.)

That is the caption theme our VIP judges will be looking for in the winning entry.

(But of course you are free to write whatever you like!)  Just abide by our rules of “be nice and stay classy because the media is watching.”

Have fun and don’t forget to look up to the heavens for inspiration.
