The Inflated Caption

Commentwise, you're a bloody disgrace. Visitor numbers are high, comments are low. I won't put up with it. So here's an impossible caption contest.

19 comments:

  1. If I'm the only one around today, you can forget about it. I've stared at this one for a few minutes and nothing even mildly amusing came into my head.

  2. Writer's ego threatens to burst if not placated by comments?

    You need to shame your readers into response, write wilder & more deranged & homicidal posts, casually relate anecdotes of crimes you have committed, terrible crimes, glorious crimes, frotting crimes.

  3. Apple's new iBalloon fails to capture the public's imagination.

  4. Isn't it odd how many of these photos are of things tethered to the ground? Perhaps it's a Norfolk thing - high winds off the sea, light-fingered pikeys...

  5. In this case, it's a London thing. It's the Rem Koolhaas pavilion roof at the Serpentine last year. But you're right, I have a thing about tethers. I wonder why.

  6. Is this the right place for me to admit that I have a think for Sarah Teather, the lovely MP for Brent East?

  9. MPs contribute to 'Children in Need' by donating all hot air produced during Queen's Speech debate to raising Serpentine balloon by at least 3 feet (Sponsor rate 2 quid a foot). Balloon last seen clearing the Himalayas!

  11. Yes, you took a picture of that shed because it was tethered. Very interesting.

    Don't a lot of Dali's pictures have things tethered to the ground?

  13. Oh dear! I fear that I also have a thing about Sarah Teather. She's like a little human hamster.

    I would care for her, buy her plenty of straw, and clean out her droppings, and then, one Christmas, she'd suddenly die on me.

    Bryan, it's no coincidence that the number of comments on your Blog postings went down soon after you ditched the daily caption. The photo caption adds colour and relief to even this, the greatest of blogs, so give us two, maybe three, a week, and watch comments on other issues rise back to previous levels.

    Where has Ian Russell gone?
