Caption Time - (Just For Fun)

Hi.  TGIF!  It's the end of the week and I think my grandson just broke my nose (seriously) so I guess it's time to relax and have some fun.

I've got some great pictures here that are just dying for captions. Take a look and give it a try.  Do just one or all seven.  Let see who comes up with the best ones.








Come on, you know you've thought of at least one.  Gotta share it.  (You caption, I've got to find an ice pack.)

My current word count: 12,322

I'm currently enjoying: Lion in the Valley by Elizabeth Peters (I have got to make time to read this weekend.)

Groaner of the Day: A couple was dining at a fancy restaurant, and was most impressed with the broccoli with hollendaise sauce. They succeeded in coaxing the chef to their table to wax eloquent, and to beg for the recipe. Finally, he relented, "Madame, Monsieur, it is so simple. Make sure zee ingredients are FRESH. Zee broccoli should be just so. ....", and on and on he went. Finally, he emphasized, "...And zee most important thing of all, you MUST serve zee sauce on a chromium plate. Chrome is zee key!"

"A CHROMIUM plate?", one of them asked. "Why is this so important?"

"Sacre bleu, Madame and Monsieur, don't you know zhere is no plate like chrome for ze hollandaise?"

Oh my gosh! These were great.

Here are my captions:

1. I know I left my catnip somewhere in here.

2. No one does Downward Dog like me!

3. Wait a minute. We're missing a Stooge.

4. Sure, make me hold this delicious hot dog. Torture me with my favorite food. But when this is over, I'm biting you in the 'nads.

5. Hiya, mom. Looky what I did. Mom? Are you having another one of your sick headaches?

6. That stag party must have gotten a little out of hand.

7. Yippee! My taxes are done! My taxes are done!

1. Zombie kitty, "I thought there were supposed to be brains in these things somewhere."

2. Angelina Ballerina warming up before her show.

3. Zombie Kitties leftovers.

4. Terrified Blackie disguises himself as a hotdog hoping zombie Kitty will not smell his brains.

5. "Yeah, and?"

6. Romeo was getting tired of romancing all of them into the car only to have his owner kill them and eat them for dinner. He had a heart you know.

7. What exactly were they growning in the field between the rows? Fido knows!

Linda Leszczuk said...

Great ones, Maria. I love your number 2. Did number 5 remind you of anyone?

Linda Leszczuk said...

Kim, you've been watching too many zombie movies again.

Maria Zannini said...

Ref: #5

Sadly, yes. But Iko assures me that was some other dog that ate my sofas.

Knock on wood, it's been two months and neither dog has jumped on the new couches or tasted them.

Linda Leszczuk said...

Maria - Hope springs eternal. The new couches shall survive.

(And Iko would never lie...would he?)

Dru said...

I am so bad at this, but I like to try...

1. ooh, that's what it look like.
2. I told you I could do it!
3. Move away from the door.
4. How did it get up there?
5. I feel good, na na na na
6. We will make beautiful babies.
7. it's da plane

Mary Vaughn said...

Blank mind for captions (and other things) but 4 & 7 are my favorites.

Your jokes are corny but I love them.
Have a great weekend.

Linda Leszczuk said...

Dru - those are great. I love your number 4.

Linda Leszczuk said...

Mary - Glad you enjoyed the pics. Sometimes captions just leap to mind. Other times, not so much.

And I always love a groaner fan. Hope your weekend is great, too.

Linda Leszczuk said...

And not one word of sympathy all day for my broken nose. Boy, you guys are hard.

Maria Zannini said...

Ref: broken nose

I thought you were kidding! You didn't make a fuss at all.

Did your grandson really break it?

How does a little kid break someone's nose? And what did you do to him, grandma, to incite such a clobber?

Okay, I'll be nice. Are you okay? Did you see a doc?

Linda Leszczuk said...

Well, never let it be said that I'm a whiner. Unless it's about my writing, of course. The funny thing is, my son broke my nose when he was three. Accidential collision. He had a very hard head. Last night it was his son. He happened to be sleeping here and I went in to kiss him goodnight. He was in bed, facing away from me and turned over to give me a hug. Somehow his elbow and my nose - another accidental collision. You wouldn't believe how loud the sound of cracking cartilage is when you hear it inside your head. Followed by the sound of chirping birds and the flashing of stars, of course. I went down like a stone.

And you think your dogs are dangerous.

Linda Leszczuk said...

Oh, and for the record, this "little kid" is 5'7" and weighs about 140.

Think Tank on two legs.

PoiLovinKris said...

Wow!! Can’t believe I am going to attempt captions, but the photos are so great—I have to!

1. He ate my food, I KNOW it!
2. Still…can’t…reach…that…itch!
3. We’re having a little trouble…
4. If I move, they might take it away!
5. Hmm, where do I search next?
6. If loving you is wrong, can we share a cell??
7. Little Dog on the Prairie

What a fun idea, thank you!! Always love your groaners, too!
Hope your nose heals up nice and fast! Although he broke your nose, I hope he is also alright, I’d bet he feels really awful—poor kid (and poor you!) !

#1: "My, what big teeth you have!"

#2: "This downward facing dog pose is for the birds!"

Linda Leszczuk said...

Kris - Those are great captions. I really like your number 1. That was just the greatest picture.

Don't worry, his elbow weathered the collision better than my nose did. Of course, now he has to worry about payback. Bwa ha ha ha!

Linda Leszczuk said...

Liz - Love those. Wish you had kept going. I think people had the most fun with number one.

I liked number 5. I could just hear him laughing a little self-satisfied heh heh heh.

(and I voted for your little lava lamp)

How's your nose?
