Impossible Friday Caption Contest

Inspired by Ian's comment on Sex News and by my friend Guido's Friday Caption Contest, I have decided to introduce a caption contest to Thought Experiments, though, this being me, it will probably be sporadic and unpredictable. My contest is much more difficult than anybody else's as I will be deliberately choosing pictures that defy captions, especially witty ones. So captions for the above please. If it's any help, which I doubt, the above was taken in Scotland.

  9. ha ha, see one good thing about caption contests is it makes you search the news more thoroughly than normal. this, believe it or not, is the top story at BBC Scotland. I've read better in our local rag!

    Maybe next time we can try a reverse caption competition.
