PostSubject: BARB Poster Caption Comp   Sat 19 Mar 2011, 18:29

Thanks to the lovely Len H, elbowfans.org has 3 BARB posters to give away in exchange for some more caption comp action.



All you need to do is come up with a witty, daft or downright clever caption for the press photo below and PM (or @elbowfans on Twitter) me with it. A panel of distinguished judges isn't available, so you're stuck with me and the OH picking the best ones.

Come on, what d'ya mean Jones? You ARE! And anyway, the entries I've got so far are all kinds of humour so why not have a stab? Smile

not an officialy entry....

Guy: "Right lads, now we've made it.....what if we ditch all the back catalogue and just play Cold Play covers at the next gig"

or

"Right, we need to make a few bob and i could do with a new speedboat- lets buy up all our own tickets and then re-sell them on e-bay for a 50% mark up"

LOL, I'll add yours to the pot though, ChrissyBoy Very Happy

Bumped to say the comp will close on the 7th. If anyone else wants a go, do it this week!

The votes have been counted, the results have been verified and we can now reveal the winning captions are:



From the various Dave Grohl-based ones:
"Backstage at Letterman, the Elboys can finally let the laughs out. Craig's ambitious 'new Foo Fighters line-up' prank had gone flawlessly" - from Eag

"Remember chilled funk?" - from Botjaaaa

(After Guy’s "Tom Jones" moment at the O2)
"…and then I just slipped them in my pocket as I walked back to the stage!" – from MikeQ

Plus the bonus B3ta award for topical use of photos goes to Wretch for his Rebecca Black gag:

We'll scare up something to send you Smile

Your prizes will be posted out as soon as I've collected in all the addresses.

Cheers to everyone who had a go, it wasn't an easy job to sort out the winners. Especially with the amusing, but libellous/NSFW ones...
