CONTEST: Write Your Own Title For This Quirky Image by 


Here’s the challenge: You can write your own title for this shot. It can be funny, punny, quirky, poignant, reflective, historical, hysterical – anything you like.

All you have to do to enter is submit your title as a comment here.

Yes, you can enter as many times as you want, on as many days as you want. You can keep coming back, looking at other people’s titles and keep adding your own. The contest will be open for just over 48 hours and will close at midday (Melbourne time) on Friday 28 January, which is 3am Friday in London and 10pm Thursday in New York.

There’s only one rule: no profanity. Have fun …. I’m throwing the gauntlet down NOW!

Just for the record, this image was shot in Singapore, in mid-December 2007.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/60 sec, ISO 400, focal length 98mm.

AND HERE ARE THE RESULTS:

In tenth place we have LadyFi with ``Suddenly, the ring master’s legs turned to rubber.’’

In ninth place we have KensPics with ``.. and now .. presenting Dumbo the Lion .. er wait .. I mean Leo the Elephant/ er wait .. ah, fooey, what you see here is what you get!!!’’

In eighth place we have Carla Jensen with ``What a rip off. Not only is the lion fake, so is the tamer!!!’’

In seventh place we have Leah Wilson with ``This human is now going to jump through the hoop of doom.’’

In sixth place we have Dedmanshootn with ``Though trapped in a two-D world the lion and tamer were content for at least they were not in a cage.’’

In fifth place we have Bevellee with ``Get your foot off the wheel you clown. Or we’ll both go down!’’

In fourth place we have Pix-Elation with ``Breaking news: out-of-control steam roller causes havoc at local circus!’’

In third place we have Judi Rustage with ``Yum,they might think I’m tame but that kid in the third row might just be my lunch!’’

In second place we have Woodie with ``Why was the lion-tamer fined ? He parked on a yellow lion!’’

AND THE WINNER IS:

LeslieBC with ``Dude! What did Barnum put in our lunch? Some Baileys?’’

  • OK, just wait till the lights stop revolving and then you’ll be back to normal soon after that.
