Thursday Photo Caption Contest

Forced to resign his plum post at the Kennel Club, Rex instantly regretted posting his collarless photos to the wrong Twitter account.

After much head scratching and sniffing—I mean, thinking—over which caption to choose (Khrushchev? Nipper? Kodak?) we decided to ask for help. We put in a request for assistance from Miriam Nisbet, who is the Director of the Office of Government Information Services (OGIS). When she isn’t sorting out FOIA requests, she’s working with guide dogs, so we knew she could help us find the right caption.

Congratulations to Peter! Miriam said this one made her laugh out loud. Check your e-mail for a code for 15% off in the eStore.

While Peter’s caption reminds of the dangers of using social media, this record is all about the dangers of spying! The original caption reads “An unabashed Korean puppy holds his ground in an ‘eye to eye’ encounter with a huge Fifth Air Force aerial camera, one of the ‘Eyes of the Far East Air Forces’. The camera is an Air Force K-19B used by night-flying RB-26 aircraft of the 67th Tactical Reconnaissance Wing to photograph enemy airfields, railroad marshalling yards, bridges, supply dumps and troop movements., ca. 06/1951″ (ARC 542230).

This week’s photo features something  from Korea as well—put your cleverest caption in the comments below.

“Yes, the buck stops here, but dolls and puppets keep going two doors down the hall and to the left.”

The President was delighted at his latest addition to his “Dolls Around the World” collection. Now they would have to build him that extra room on the West Wing.

“It’s my Mini Me”, she told the President. “I’m ahead of my time…it will make sense 50 years from now…trust me”!

I want a Korean doll that I can call my own.

I want a Korean doll that I can call my own. A Korean doll other fellows cannot see. Then those flirty flirty guys with their flirty flirty eyes will have to flirt with Korean dolls that are real.

Once again, Harry Truman vows to himself to find out who keeps telling foreign dignitaries that he collects dolls.

I like that!

President Truman did not realize the doll was the Korean version of Betsy Wetsy until it was too late.
