Forgotten Caption Competition Winners

Potty pigTaken from the days of pre-history and legend, there was a theory that Colonialist had run a Caption Competition based on the above piggy portrait.

Documents from a dig in Durban have now been unearthed which confirm this as a fact, and skilled historians have even found it possible to resurrect the votes and arrive at the top three according to them.

In case these valiant people are still alive, their names and efforts are noted here, together with the badge to which the winner becomes entitled

Now I see why they say, “Don’t Shit Where You Eat.”

Congratulations to the top three, and thanks to all who participated with entries, votes or snide comments!  (As a matter of interest, one of my own absolute favourites didn’t get any votes.)

    I kind of liked AD caption… typical woman question of their husband…


  9. Yay!!!!!! I actually won something, Col. I’d sort of given up hope of ever hearing the result of this competition. Glad I lived to see the day when you finally got to the bottom of this. 😀

    I am digging the results of this dig in Durban which unearthed results of a long-ago vote on this captivating caption contest of a pig held hostage by a can on his can!

    Thanks, Col! And for all who participated. FUN stuff getting cans stuffed into too small tins.


  12. Sound like the group had fun figuring out the funniest caption.
