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!
