With a nod to Open Salon’s slogan “You make the headlines,” on my page,
You Make the Captions!
It's been almost a year since we had fun with CoyoteOldStyle’s Armpit of the Year Photo Caption Contest. And because you asked for it, the Photo Caption Contest is back!
To take your mind off the fact that you didn't, yet again, get ANYTHING for Valentine’s Day, I’m offering some new “interesting” images for your captioning pleasure. Keeping in mind the gravitas of the ancient Chinese curse, “May you live in interesting times,” I present you industrial-strength photo-weenies with this newly expanded and improved incarnation of CoyoteOldStyle’s Heart-Shaped Photo Caption Contest.
Remember: If you figure out which ONE photo in my post Snow News is Good News is black and white and enter captions in this contest, you get a special prize right here when the winners are revealed!*
Write some creative, pithy, thought-provoking, silly, happy, sad or descriptive captions and indicate which photo they are for. The infallible panel of august judges will be picking winners and will update this page with the winning captions. Have at it and have fun!
