Thursday Photo Caption Contest

“Think, man, think. The formula or I pull the plunger!”

Congratulations to Hugh Ryon, whose caption suggested both the possibility of danger and the silliness of the pose! Check your email for a discount code for 15% in the eStore.

Your suggestions of spinning and vomit were not far off, gentle readers. And like Dorothy, this young man was probably trying to wish himself home when the photo was being taken.

This bizarre moment was a test given in the Air Force. The original caption read: “Subjecting the prospective American airman to the falling test. The sixth sense–that of equilibrium–is the function of the labyrinth of the internal ear. Underwood and Underwood., 03/19/1918 ”

This week’s photo also seems to be some kind of test, so coming up with a caption for this week’s test should be as easy as falling off a log. Give us your wittiest caption in the comments below!

Born with 14 toes, Gary “Logs” McGee never failed to impress at Camp Kishioka’s annual competition.

Floyd Kahanamoku, a long-time resident of Lake George, NY, and distant cousin of the legendary Duke Kahanamoku, tries his hand at “Log Surfing”. To everyone’s disappointment, he never catches “the big one”.

Let’s see…I think my dance instructor said, “You put your left foot in, you put your left foot out..”

These tryouts for the Redwoods Swan Lake production are really tough.

Actually, the girls were not at all disappointed that Archivist Bob confused “Write on the blog” with”Ride on the log.”

“This guy needs to fall so that I can save him”. Different note: Love these contests! Especially the previous one on air force testing!
