non-trek caption contest: News pictures

As this is a common enough game around here, I am thinking to start this here.. At Miscellaneous; we have the OMG bomb thread then then other picture threads and in other categories there is the trek caption contest well now we have the Miscellaneous News Captioned Contest

The idea is that we vote and the winner then gets to choose their very own next news picture so since I have started this ..,

btw I may need some MOD help as long as this gets the go ahead and does not get closed or moved some how..

You should have asked for my blessing as well, as I'm the guy around here with all the clever.

As for the picture... maybe we could do one of, you know, not a dead body?

Re: non-trek caption contest: News pictures

A Caption Contest is perfectly acceptable, think, but we have two problems here:

First, your image was hotlinked, which is against the rules.

Second, ThankQ is correct that a picture of a dead body is not something we want embedded in a Thread; and adding humorous captions to that picture is in bad taste.

But if you want to find another picture, and host it yourself, feel free to give it another try.
