Here is a new competition idea that I thought of after seeing one of Bjorn's images. Having discussed it with Bjorn we have come up with the following rules:

You can post 1 caption idea per reply (1 reply per person)
Entries will be open for 1 week
Best caption (as decided by the original shot photographer) gets to post the next shot
Images can be of any subject but must have obvious caption potential

Seeing as it was this image that sparked the idea, here is the first shot to come up with a caption for...

Woman is thinking "My god, the cheek of some people these days"

Everyone, apart from the girl on the front right, is thinking:

"go on, I dare anyone to tell her she's got toilet roll hanging out of the back of her underwear"

Girl in the front "Ha! I got the last ticket! You may lick my 'where I have my hand'"

Woman behind her thinks: "I don't believe it. Finally I got my husband to go to the opera with me and now it's sold out... "

Man thinks: "Well done, girl."

Girl in the background thinks: "What are they all looking at?"

People in the backgound think that they hide some more tickets somewhere. Sit down strike.

With my vacation and all the work I've been doing lately I completely forgot to choose the best caption. Better late than never I suppose, so... {drums}
