Contest! Name this photo.

My husband took this photograph of George today and asked what I thought of it. Looking at it, I decided that I’d like it much better if it had a funny caption underneath. My husband said he thought the same thing. But try as we might, we couldn’t come up with a single solitary clever thing.

And then I thought about you. I’m sure one of you could come up with something fun.

This photo deserves a name, a caption, a funny sentence, anything that you think would bring a smile to anyone reading it.

DSC_0478 copy 2

RULES: There are no rules! Leave one caption, or leave several. Leave ‘em in a single comment or a string of comments. I don’t care! It’s wild and crazy here at the casa de George. And this dog looks like he’s up to somethin’ here.

I’ll leave this contest up for two days. On Friday, I’ll post the top five, and then you can choose the winner by voting on them. Winner receives an 8 x 12 Standout print from any one of the photographs I offer on my etsy site. Please make sure I have a way of contacting you if you win.

Here’s an example of a Standout print:

DSC_0499 copy 2

Made with lightweight Gatorfoam with your choice of black or white trim, it can hang on a wall or stand alone.

DSC_0495 copy 2

I have a few of these in my home and I like moving them from place to place.

So please, put on your thinking caps and come up with something that makes you grin. Final Five will be announced Friday morning.

Have fun!

get it get it ha ha I got no fingers, get it?

(to the uninitiated, pulling somebody's finger elicits a fart)((but i'm sure George doesn't stoop to such low comedy, right?))

"if i stand here and make like a tree, the cat doesn't seem to see me. so hey you, yeah you with the camera....sheesh, stop staring at me already"

"it's not that i feel left out or anything, well maybe i do a little, but sometimes i feel like you love that camera more than you love me.....sniff, sniff"

"we can stand here all day looking at each other and laughing at the cat, or you can take me for a walk. rock, paper, scissors ?"

'Don't think so. Let's see YOU fetch a stick.'

'No, I haven't seen the cat lately...'

'Are you sure you're getting my good side?'

While in deguise, Blackie the cat, knew they did not suspect a thing!

"it's so simple. it's called the hustle and everyone knows how to do it even when the music isn't playing. so let's start again. ready. and to the right"

"don't give me that look. so the weatherman says another hurricane is coming and i know you get all excited because we live on the east coast and weather reports are really important, but my walk is needed right this minute and since i didn't sleep very well last night, let's get your priorities in order. me first and second and third. and then you can worry about the weather".....love you !!!!

These Nine Acres said...

I am all out of clever. Well, to be honest, I've never had any clever...that is why I love all my Blisters so much...they are full of clever.

So, not captions from me, but I do love those standouts. I must print some more of my own images.

Claudia said...

"Oh, yeah...I'm onto you."

Daryl said...

this is my I love squirrels face .. do you think it will work?

and all that jazz

fetch? are you serious?

are you lookin' at me?

Cheyenne said...

If you cropped it portrait-style it would look rather presidential. "Vote for George 2012!" Now there's a candidate I would have no issues with! :) Or he could even have his picture on the front of our currency, "In Dog We Trust."

Deborah said...

"Heres looking at you, kid"

Thats what I thought of the instant I looked at George here...lol

I am terrible at coming up with captions but he certainly does look like the cat that ate the canary...so maybe he is saying..."Burp"

Jerry Jones said...

Hi George.

Caption:
"I'll be dog gone if you think I'm gonna let you take one more picture."

George should be listed in Forbes as one of the rich and famous with his earnings in royalties. LOL!
