photo in need of a caption, retro version

i’ve had this baby sitting in my drafts for a long time. time to let it breathe some air. and, of course, time to subject it to the snarky brilliance of whyismarko captioners. bring it! (this is going to be a quick judging round, because i leave for vacation tomorrow, and have to wrap it up prior to hitting the road — so don’t dawdle).

Maybe for next year’s junior high mission trip we should put a little more effort into planning our “free day” activity.

Rob
VBS before PETA… yeah, it really was an adventure…

Tom Seward
Mary had a little lamb,
Freddy had a pup,
Suzy had a crocodile
it ate the others up

Jennifer
Being the youth pastor’s daughter meant having to test out all the new ideas for youth-group games.

Andrew Seely
next slide… doreen rides a porcupine with not so great results

Phil
It’s OK, she’s the senior pastors kid!

and, a day earlier than i normally close these babies down and call a winner, since i’m leaving for a vacation this morning… it’s time:
we have a weiner

i woulda given it to rob if he’s stopped with “VBS before PETA” (sometimes shorter is better!). so i’m going with jennifer’s “Being the youth pastor’s daughter meant having to test out all the new ideas for youth-group games.” (though it would have been even stronger as “Being the youth pastor’s daughter meant Doreen had to test out all the new ideas for youth-group games.”

oh, and an honorable mention to tom seward, who all the way over in africa (mali?), wrote that cute little poem!

  3. Fluffy white dress … $100
    Patten leather shoes … $50
    Telling little girls I won’t bite during free rides … Priceless!

  4. With the closing of fairs and circuses during the Great Depression, Floridians have to get creative to entertain their kids.

    -OR-

    They had to decide between Lawn Darts, Red Rover, and this…guess which one they picked.

    Or

    Clarence was a good gator. He was kind, charitable – paid his taxes and never returned a movie late. When he died, though, it took him by great surprise that he would be ferrying around children all day in gator hell, wondering to himself: ‘where did I go wrong?’

  6. The University of Florida is yet again in hot water for NCAA rule violations after multiple archived photos surfaced Monday showing a long history of athletic recruitment abuse. It is said that UF scouts dating back to the early 50’s would hang outside local school yards and ball fields enticing child athlete prodigies with mascot rides and candy.
