Caption Competition

(Another) Donnelly triumphs!

Well, we have finally got around to judging the Caption Competition!  We had a surge of late entries in te last 24 hours, some of which I have to say were of a very hig quality.  All in all, we had in excess of 30 entries so the Competition Sub-Commttee had their work cut out chosing a winner.   But finally, after long deliberation, we chose the following entry:

“How did anyone ever think we would be nice covered in chocolate and put in a lunchbox!”

Congratulations to our winner, Brian Donnelly from Dublin.  Brian wins a selection of high quality prizes, including a furry (king) penguin and a six pack of Penguin chocolate bars.  Well done Brian.

Second and third prizes went respectivelly to the following entries:

“You bitch, they ARE my shoes.”

Liam Cummins (wins a Falkland Islands pen!)

“Nope, still nothing!”

– Simon Allen (wins an Antarctica themed tea-towel)

Obviously, eveyone had their favourite and no doubt the selections of the Competition Sub-Committee will provoke debate and maybe even a little controversy.  However, we leave the enties on site for your continued enjoyment.

The competition is now closed but feel free to suggest new captions nonetheless.  We very much enjoy reading them.


We have had quite a few entries to our Caption Competition and they are still coming in. We are publishing below some of the best received to date. We have not set a closing date as yet so keep them coming.

More than one entry per person is allowed – as you will see below we have one multipe entry already!

We also have one entry to date from one of the Fearless Four themselves (not surprsingly, it happens to be my favourite up to now).

Entries should be submitted by way of comment on this Page. They will of course be moderated.

We may or may not offer a prize to the winner. It will be something worth owning, I can assure you!

The picture we have chosen is the one below of two King penguins deep in conversation not realising they can be overheard! Good luck everyone.

Wife (on the left): “Darling, I read recently that, as it is the first part of the foetus that develops, we all start life as an asshole; some just never get over it!! We all suffer with neck problems, so no I’m not taking you to the hospital because you think yours is broken.”



“Oh nuts!!”



“There was no need to hit me that hard, I only said I love the way your belly sags because it hides the size of your feet!”



“You bitch, they ARE my shoes.”
