photo in need of a caption

best caption gets a book of your choosing (a ys book, that is)…


the real story on this photo

(ht to bobbie)


ok, let me just start off this list of contenders by admitting something: i didn’t even think of the reality that this photo would be an easy target for “ass” jokes. seriously, didn’t even cross my mind. shows you how pure as the driven snow i am. innocent as a baby. and, wow, did you guys ever go for it on that one! i was tempted to not include any contenders that went for the “ass” angle, but there are one or two that actually made me laugh out loud. but i’m with the person who said it was the easy answer (even though i didn’t think of it — so i’m both pure AND simple). here’s the evolving list of the top contenders, from my point of view:

Do these lambs make my hips look big??? (cameron)

…the ass and lamb kept time, pa rum pum pum pum. (patrick) (ysmarko: a truly legit use of the word “ass”)

Texas schools decide they should change thier “No Kid Left Behind” policy… (molly)

Option #3 for next year’s YS convention bag. (ginny)

I had a dream the other night,there were 2 sets of hoof prints in the sand… (joe troyer) (ysmarko: fantastic, absolutely fantastic)

Fear not–the Bush housing initiative has been tested on animals. (mandy)

Sometimes Joe Volunteer was an ass, but he was great with the sixth graders. (cory) (ysmarko: ok, this was one of the “ass” uses that made me laugh out loud)

“Now all I need are some fava beans and a nice Chianti.” (ginny) (ysmarko: purely for the “oh, i get it!” factor”. that’s a wildly imaginative thought process you’ve got there, ginny.)

All the other sheep looked away as if they didn’t want a ride also. (ben)

lots of extremely funny responses on this one. but i’m gonna give it (with a little help from people in my house who gave their input) to ben, for the last-minute entry, “all the other sheep looked away as if they didn’t want a ride also.”

shoot me an email, ben.
