Thursday Photo Caption Contest

Even 'Dress Like Betsy Ross Day' failed to cheer up the ladies down at the old Kellogg's plant.

Last week’s photo may have sparked some of our funniest captions yet! As soon as we started reading about the ill-fated Florence in Apple Jacks, cereal killers, and the Shotz Brewery, we knew choosing a winner would be tough.

So we turned to Denise Henderson, who blogs about her finds in the records over at The Text Message. She also is the Review Team Lead for Online Public Access.

Congratulations to Ryan! Ironically, our guest judge Denise does not like breakfast or breakfast cereal–but she does like her fellow hometown girl Betsy Ross, and so she went with Ryan’s reference to the floppy-hatted, flag-sewing symbol of freedom. Ryan, check your email for a 15% discount to the eStore and check out our merchandise.

And despite the witty suggestions of our captioneers, the original caption confirms this to be a rather mundane scene: “Kellogg Company. Women inspecting filled boxes of cereal before boxes go to sealer., 08/22/1934.”

This week’s photo seems to involve multiples–but this time it’s girls instead of cereal boxes. Give us your funniest caption below!

Kicking off a new school year, the West Bridge Conga Line Team was optimistic, but Betty’s non-regulation black shoes foreshadowed disaster.

She had the worst free-throw on the team but Zelda Zenner rarely got to the front of the line anyway.

The reason for the losing streak of Central’s girls basketball team was eventually determined to be due to the fact they mistakenly thought they needed to be in a Conga line at all times.

Coach McElroy’s advice to “stick together” produced thirteen straight wins for his squad in 1962. He didn’t expect it would carry over to picture day.

The “Trim Your Waist Mutual Assistance Club” seems to be effective.

The team was all ready to take it’s picture when they noticed that Mary hadn’t shown up yet. This was a big deal because she was the one who held onto the ball.

The Webster septuplets thought they had a reality show on TLC all nailed down, but at the last moment the producers went with those cute Gosselin kids instead.

Not only was Margaret the tallest girl on the team, but she always found other ways to be different and stand out.

Starting a women’s synchronized basketball team sounded like a good idea in theory but proved difficult to execute.

The Chattanooga Choo-Choo girls basketball team proved to be good sports when asked to “Do the Hokey Pokey” as half-time entertainment as well as play their hardest against the Memphis Morning Stars.
