Way back in history I ran a Caption Competition with this picture:
Are you sitting down? In a secure spot from which you are unlikely to topple, with injurious results, when you faint?
Are you sure?
Well, then, I have done it at last!
Now, as with previous contests, all you have to do is to take the ones you think are best, second-best, and third-best, and write down the numbers in a comment here in that order, e.g. 34, 21, 58 (yes, Ermintrude, I know there are only twenty-one entries, but this is just an egg sample …).
Scoring will be done with 3 points for a first, two for a second, and one for a third. Votes are also invited and expected from contestants, so if you think your own caption is a better or best one, feel free to vote for it!
By the way, I took the subject to school today to fetch young R, and the kids all wanted to hold the ‘puppy’ and pet her. She loved every minute!
1 “They asked me: “You wanna sit for Mo’s art.”
“Who the hell is Mo, I said?”
2 “Find another piano; I’m busy with my last movement.”
3 You’re barking up the wrong tree, I said pooch – not pianist
4 I can play ‘one pawtato, two pawtato, three pawtato, paw.’
5 “I’ll play any song you like – as long as it’s Bach.”
6 “No Schmackos, no play.”
7 First the treats, then the sonata.
8 “My first piece will be How much is that doggy in the window, and I will conclude my recital with And they call it Puppy Love. I thenk you.”
9 A really good yappy-toire!
10 Don’t you DARE! This is MY piano!
11 And now, ladies and gentleman… I’ll be performing Col’s latest sonata in F sharp minor.
Do listen up!
12 You can sit down on one condition, you don’t play “Bow, Wow, Wow!” again!
13 Shave AND a haircut . . . Two Bites!!!
14 “Yes, I am talking to you!”
15 I’m telling you, it’s not that difficult! If Liberace could do it, so can I….
16 I am fed up with this yap music, out of the way and let me play.
17 “Okay… Bach’s concerto in d minor, and please don’t make a mess of it this time, my ears are very sensitive..”
18 ‘You can stop calling me a caterpillar now. See, it was me all along under that fluffy stuff!’
19 “No way you’re sitting down! . . . I’ve heard you play before . . . “
20 It is not tuned, I promise you.
21 “One more step and the photographer gets it!”
