Thursday’s Photo Caption Contest
Rick B. won our hearts and minds with his caption last week of a donkey with a dangerous back blast. Understated, eloquent, simple in its beauty. Kudos, Rick, you’ve won 30% off at the National Archives eStore. An honorable mention must also go out to M.G. Young‘s double entendre caption: “This recoil will kick your ass!”
What exactly is going on in this picture? Good question. The caption reads “recoilless rifle mounted on a mule” and the photo comes from Fort Leavenworth and the Department of Defense. That still doesn’t exactly explain why someone would mount a giant rifle on the back of a mule. No word if the equine saw combat.
Anyhoo, onto this week’s photo. Give us your funniest caption for this peculiar photo and you’ll win 30% off at our eStore and the gratitude of a nation.
