CAPTION CONTEST

Post by marko69 » Wed Mar 18, 2020 3:01 pm

Hi folks, had a word with the mods to ask if running the caption contest as a separate thing until further notice would be a good idea. The response was positive. Fully understand not everyone will agree and will think humour isn't appropriate at this significant moment in history. I do get that.

But there will be some that would like to maybe have a few laughs away from the face of Hugh Edwards. If its not for you, just leave and don't enter the thread again. And remember if you do enter the thread, wash your hands on the way out.

I will try and post a picture every week until May. The scoring might actually come to me much quicker with people beginning to self isolate.

So if you feel like it, have a go at trying to lift the mood in a time of crisis. We will carry on with same league table which was as follows:

LEAGUE TABLE

AylesburyBlue 102
Bluemike 89
DerickIpsw 82
Blueblood 60
Number 9 55
Shed on Tour 50
Ando 47
Blue Wilf 43
Frosty 34
Tangfastic 26
JohnnyB 25
Quasar 18
IpswichTownNo1 12
Kerry Blue 11
Watership Down 10
Barmy Billy 8
Todd66 7
AshfordBlue 7
Nicscreamer 5
Charnwood 4
Lucy 1
MasseyFerguson 1

For me Marko, it’s a welcome distraction from the situation. I’m in a profession that doesn’t allow me to work from home, so day to day is becoming a bit stressful. I’m going through more sanitizers than beer. Will you be scoring the last entries as well, or has that been canceled?

Be safe every one!

Alright guys. Thanks for running the caption contest and I can’t argue with the rationale of it carrying on. Unfortunately as a healthcare provider working for the NHS the coming weeks are going to be crazy busy and any spare second will be spend with family so this will be my last entry.

Caption 1 -
PL talking to his secretary....
PL - The people of Wuhan have saved me my job, please send them a basket of bats as a token of tummy thanks.

Caption 2 -
PL reasuring colleague....
PL - honestly mate it’s completely normal, and trust me it’s nothing a well placed thumb can’t solve.

You entered all season and I’ve been a mile ahead throughout. If I enter I win.

The suspension was for being a bell end.

It was purely a caption entry there was no other motive.

I find your caption post really unfunny Derick.

I bet the other mods you would make a subtle dig using the caption contest, I wasn't disappointed.

Keep in mind Mike works for the NHS and is deeply worried with all that is going on in that sector at the moment, coming on here is supposed to be a bit of light relief.

Please don't tell me it was a bit of light banter because I won't believe you.

Maybe think a bit before posting in the future.

I'm sure Derick didn't mean anything sadistic in his post. He's trying to be funny while we all deal with Covid 19. For me, the forum is an escape from reality. I feel for Bluemike, and I'm also one of those workers who still has to go out in the world and take risks every day. Maybe we should all lighten up a bit and think about the important things in life. Take care everyone.

Can we all just make sure we don't say anything that will be personally against any other forum member? Be it trying to be funny or otherwise.

Everyone is going to be stressed out at the moment and it wont take much to offend, so lets just try and be kind! Please, I beg x

Strong stance on this seasons caption contest. The season is not being abandoned, I’m awarding it to AylesburyBlue and THE DON CUP will be engraved when the shops are open again.

Much like Liverpool, they’ve been the best for the majority of the season and I wouldn’t in the slightest grudge them the title.... much like Thomas, who’s been streets ahead, and who will struggle to log on with his type of work in the coming weeks, the title goes to you, buddy and very well done indeed. There have been some cracking laugh out loud moments with the dry, and very confident sense of humour. We’ve loved it. We also appreciate the work you and all the other NHS workers do and are going to be doing in the coming months.
👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

2019/20: AYLESBURYBLUE

Ok guys, this is all just a wee muck about now to pass the time until quarantine is over. If there is any humour still out there, (please let there be!) and if circumstances permit, please do stop by and offer some laughs.

Cheers mate. Personally thought I had the 5 points inthe bag this week and that would have seen me over the line. Even with my non submissions for the remainder haha. I entered this for 2 reasons,
1) I didn’t take part last season (until jan) and thought it was total BS when I saw certain people submitting 3 or 4 entries to try and win. I wasn’t going to let them win when it was a level playing field. Achieved (and never in doubt).
2) I actually enjoy the humour, every Saturday I have a good laugh reading most of the entries and wanted to have a good chuckle. Partly achieved.

I think I will make myself a one season wonder and bow out on a high. I’ve persevered with this season to obtain objective 1 and not to let down the head to head in the prediction league. However as both are now concluded I’ve asked to have my account de activated (turns out you can’t do it yourself) as a vote of no confidence in light of certain moderating decisions......

If my old man is hanging around I’ll make sure he pings me a picture of the trophy. Cheers Marko.

That part in bold and underlined is what will be greatly missed if you Jack it in. I venture onto a few forums during my spare time and each one have a few characters that have confidence in a non threatening and highly entertaining way and you’re one of them. In my best Scottish accent, yer a credit tae yer auld man! 👍
Stay safe pal and keep on doing an awesome job.

Think I’ll have a go at that caption:

Man furthest right on pic, centre, distracting Mevans: “Everything is closing. No more shop. Pies have finished. Bakery closing down.”
Woman behind Mevans (thinking): keep on distracting him...... this wallet...... is nearly out....
