Caption Contest #1

If you're a follower of Bill of the Birds Blog, you've no doubt enjoyed the caption contests he's been hosting (click here for the most recent contest and winners). I'm amazed at all the clever and hilarious captions people have come up with for his photos, so I decided to have a little contest for my blog readers too.

Give this little squirrel a voice.


I know someone out there can come up with a great caption for this picture. The person who writes the winning caption for this picture will receive their choice of one of these fabulous prizes: 1) a half-pint of my delicious homemade wild grape jelly or 2) a dozen pieces of my tasty homemade venison jerky.


Deadline for caption entries will be midnight on Saturday, March 7th. My brothers don't know it yet, but they will be the judges for this caption contest and the winner will be announced on Sunday, March 8th.

"Please sir, may I have some more?"

DRAT! Christine took my line!!
It's the line from Oliver Twist where Oliver asks for more pitiful gruel.

I'll have to think some more and come back....

"Thank You for the world so sweet, thank You for the food we eat, thank You for the birds that sing, thank You God for everything!"

It just looks like he's saying grace before eating, and that's what I think a squirrel would say.

"But, Mama, if you told me not to put my elbows on the table, why are you sitting on it?"

(Oh, that is soooo bad!)

Mom says you have to share.

I know I'm not allowed to win cuz I'm family ;) but I think that little red squirrel is saying to himself, "I think I can take him..."

You guys are crackin' me up! I knew everyone could come up with something better than I could.
Keep 'em coming!

Please Lord don't let him eat what is left, I'm little and don't eat very much, just save me some morsel, otherwise I'll have to get tough!

Possum and Lynne! I was thinking the same exact thing as I clicked the comment button! HA!

I can't think of anything clever at the moment. Just took a benedryl. ;o)

Cute picture though.

...when I clicked through, I was thinking along the lines of possumlady and Lynne, "Oh please sir, just a tiny little seed for my tiny little paws..." But after reading your Sissy's "I think I can take him!" It might be (rubbing his hands together), "Hehehe...he's taken the bait. Just one more step and he will fall through the trap door...then he's mine!"

Heather said...

Think, Heather... THINK! I've got to sleep on this one. I hope I can come up with somethin'!

Jayne said...

Dear Lord... Please have Sophie come out so that there's at least something left for me? Please, please, please?

troutbirder said...

Well as usual I'm late. The line from "Oliver" came to mind here as well.

Dave said...

I can't figure out what kind of sauce this is. How about you?

D and Suz said...

"OK.. So here's the thing.. See it's like this.. After work some of the guys wanted to go get a drink and then.. well we just started talking and.. well..ok.. time got away from us. But I'm home now.. and I am ready to eat.. and uhhh and.. I love you!"

Mary C said...

"God is great, God is good,... I'm asking you to leave me some food." ;o) I also thought the little guy was praying.

Meggie said...

"Hazel, let me explain!"

dAwN said...

I pray Ruthie will hurry up and declare a winner...I am getting tired of holding this pose!

I was thinking what PossumLady & Lynne were thinking, but reading them, I think Jayne's is the best, lol!

Hmmm....


Dear Lord, Mama doesn't know I have my eyes open, but thank you for the seed lady and for keeping her doggie inside while we eat. Amen!

Mel said...

Ok, I washed my hands... can I have some now? :P
