A Caption Contest! (Subtitled: Hooray! Another freakin' contest!)
[You can't say I didn't warn you about the impending pet pictures.]
This is Clancy, my all-time favorite cat, and his being dead doesn't alter that. He was the best cat that ever lived, and I miss him horribly.
So, cheer me up! Invent a creative caption for this picture. The squirrel behind the glass was part friend, part nemesis to Clancy. It showed up at the window bird feeder every day, and drove him crazy with its lack of fear. Taunted him, really. But it was entertainment for good old Clancy Doodle Dandy.
RULES: Share your caption in the comments. (Short and sweet is fine, but if you want to develop a longer dialogue between cat and squirrel, that's cool too.)
That's it. That's all you have to do. Entertain me!
The winner will be chosen on a purely subjective basis: whichever caption I like the best. Hint: my tastes run to funny, but sometimes I can be moved by pure sentiment.
The contest is open to everyone. If the winner lives outside the States, it may take a while for the prize to arrive, since I will mail it the cheapest way possible, but it will get there. :)
In case of a tie, the winner will be decided by random launch of the names from a catapult we happen to have in the garage. (Honestly? I'm kinda hoping for a tie. I'd like to get out the catapult and play with it.)
Contest will close at midnight, Tuesday Aug. 17, and the winner will be announced as soon thereafter as I can decide. Shouldn't take long.
PRIZE: the Raise the Roof CD. It's a sampling of the various artists who've played the Barns at Wolf Trap, the venue where TG works, and it was produced by the theater god himself. All songs were recorded live right there the Barns.
If you want to see a listing of the songs, you can look here.
P.S. As I promised, Clancy is a still-alive pet in that picture. And even in these, regardless of how he may look:
And in this one, he only wished he were dead:
I will consider offering extra credit if you add a caption for it, too.
