photo in need of a caption (spongebob version)

ok, here’s what was actually going down in this photo, sent to me by my friend, fellow riptide small group leader (my son’s small group leader!), and former ys co-worker ian robertson. but, as ian said in his email to me: perfect photo in need of a caption.

please, humor me. in fact, i’ll even throw in a prize this time: a copy of my new book for parents, Understanding Your Young Teen, when it releases in december.

CONTENDERS

TMZ reports children’s television hero squished by double decker bus. His last words were reportedly, “Squidward, I will always love you.”

Jeff
CSI: Bikini Bottom

Dave Wollan
In the end, it was beauty that killed the sponge

Thadd
The all-too-common demise of another childhood actor…

Dave Wollan
A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the sponge, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite…

Leigh
Stressed out mom, hearing the Sponge Bob theme song for the milllionth time, finally took her over the edge….

and the winner is…

my first inclination was to call a tie between jeff’s “CSI: Bikini Bottom” and dave wollan’s “A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the sponge, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite…”

but, i realized just in time that would mean i’d have to ship out TWO books for the winners! and i’m too cheap for that. so, Jeff gets an honorable mention, and… Dave Wollan, you are the grand prize winner!! woo-hoo!! (dave, shoot me an email with your address at some point, and i’ll send you a copy of the book when it comes out in december.)
