Today's Neatorama and Hobotopia Caption Monkey game comes via National Geographic's The Daily Dozen (October 2009 - Week 1), the always excellent user-submitted gallery of photographs curated by photo editor Susan Welchman.
This photo was taken by William Lascelles who wrote "My parents live very close to the city airport and every other year they host an air show. This year the Blue Angels were the highlight and were flying over the house during performances. I took my father's dog outside and made him pose!"
Your task is simple: caption the photograph above. The best/funniest comment will win a Caption Monkey, courtesy of Adam "Ape Lad" Koford. You can enter as many as you'd like below, but please only one caption per comment.
For inspiration, check out Adam's blog. Good luck!
Update 10/7/09 - Adam has picked the winner! Congratulations to DeepForestGreen who won with this caption: Bernard was less famous that his brother, Clifford the Big Red Dog, but the locals knew that he was the best air traffic controller their town had ever seen.
Update 10/7/09 - Winner #2 (DeepForestGreen told us that he won before, and graciously offered the prize to another Neatoramanaut). Congrats to: nate who came up with this caption: Henry didn’t believe the fleas when they said “We’ll be back but in F-16’s.” He will now. Oh yes…he will now.
Update 6/15/2010- Months after this photograph won the Your Shot competition at National Geographic, it turns out that the photo did not conform to the rules. After some investigation, William Lascelles has admitted that his photo submission is a digital manipulation! National Geographic has posted a correction and the story behind how the fabrication came to light. We still believe, however, that the captions submitted here are actual fabricated captions. -Thanks, John Fleming!
