Caption Monkey 53: Prado Museum


Photo: Geoff Pingree / National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest

W00t! It's time for Neatorama and Hobotopia's Caption Monkey game - but first, here's the story behind the photo, titled "Behold". It's the Grand Prize winner of National Geographic's Traveler's "World in Focus" photo contest, and taken by Geoff Pingree of Oberlin, Ohio (he won a 15-day trip for two to Antarctica aboard the National Geographic Endeavor, which makes our prizes here on Neatorama look downright puny in comparison!):

Pingree, a professor of Cinema Studies and English at Oberlin College, took this photograph at Madrid's Prado Museum, which was staging theatrical performances inspired by masterworks by Spanish artists. "The photo shows performers playing Spanish King Philip IV and his second wife, Mariana of Austria," he said.

Update 12/17/08 - Adam has picked the winner! Congratulations to Adam D. Jones who won with this caption: "You said everyone would be wearing a costume!"

"And in related news, Angelina Jolie's new adopted kids arrived this week, smuggled in under the dress of a very weird lady that seems to have seen Elvis up and to the left".
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
The reign of this king of Spain sent the country right down the drain. The queen, it seemed, was quite cold and mean. (Probably from marrying her uncle.) So much for the monarchy!
