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 close at midday (Melbourne time) on Friday.

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

This image shows the famous Superman-and-truck that is suspended from the ceiling of Toys’R’Us in Times Square, New York.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 70-300mm lens. F4, 1/45 sec, ISO 200, focal length 30mm.
