Thursday’s Photo Caption Contest

“New Army Dirigibles give Doughboy Morale a Lift”

“New Army Dirigibles give Doughboy Morale a Lift”

These doughboys’ morale could use a lift, Bryan, because the original caption reads “three 5,000 cubic feet Nurse Balloons in Hangar. Fort Sill, Oklahoma, May 1, 1918.” So far as we can tell there are two balloons, not three in this photo, meaning these soldiers are one dirigible short and probably have some explaining to do. Your winning caption has won you 30% off at the National Archives eStore and the undying gratitude of the POH staff.

This week we got into the ghoulish spirit of the season and found a photo that could use a bit of sprucing up, at least so far as the caption goes. You know the rules! Give us your funniest caption, and the one that makes us laugh the most wins!

*** UPDATE *** Our guest judge this week is the National Archives Chief of Staff Deb Wall. Win her over with laughter and you’ll win 30% off at the eStore. Good luck!

To get you started:  Sad-o-Lantern
