New Photo Caption Contest: Just Two Old Friends Sharing a Summer Salad in the Shade


President Barack Obama has lunch with former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on the patio outside the Oval Office, July 29, 2013. (Official White House Photo by Chuck Kennedy)

Here is how Politico described this photo in Mike Allen’s Playbook today:

PHOTO OF OBAMA and CLINTON before they started their salads yesterday, on the patio outside the Oval Office. Principal Deputy White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said at yesterday’s 1 p.m. briefing, when asked about the menu: “The White House chef … whipped up some grilled chicken, some pasta jambalaya, and some salad for them to enjoy during lunch. I haven’t had lunch myself, so that sounds pretty good.”

And just before that description, Playbook reported:

VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN and former Secretary Hillary Clinton are having breakfast at the Naval Observatory at 8:30 a.m.

The timing must be totally coincidental for Hillary to have lunched with President Obama yesterday and then been invited for breakfast this morning with Vice President Biden.

So let’s turn that coincidental timing into summer photo caption contest fun!

Besides writing captions for this “just two friends having lunch” photo, here are two more opportunities to win not valuable prizes. (Just your screen name mentioned across the universe.)

First is a contest for the best thought bubbles. Second is a contest for the best “real” conversation or best question and answer.

Now that’s what I call a three-in-one contest! Please label your submissions as captions, thought bubbles or “real” conversation to make judging easier.

Also, try to be somewhat respectful with your entries because, as always, the media and the NSA will be watching.

Here again are the winners from our last contest who managed that request quite well.

Have fun and remember, “It’s just lunch.” Meaning the fate of the Western World was not determined by this gathering. (But then again, some might think it was.)
