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.
Now, on to the contest. The funniest caption will win an original Laugh-Out-Loud cat comic by Adam Koford. Place your caption in the comment section. One caption per comment, please, but you can enter as many as you'd like.
