verbiage: caption this!

At the beginning of the August, My Lovely Wife and I took a trip to visit my mother. We spent a lot of time looking through photo albums. My Lovely Wife definitely had more than her fill of seeing evidence of my early and ubiquitous trend toward — ahem — naturism.

I… uh… you won’t be seeing those pictures.

Unless I decide to drunkblog.

Which would be dangerous.

[Shifty eyes.]

But I did come across one photo that made me squeal with unrestrained glee.

I call on you — my faithful and relatively hygienic readers — to help me discover its true yet heretofore undiscovered caption.

Hit the comments. Suggest your own. Pick yer favs. We’ll try and winnow it down to a winner.

And then we’ll slap the caption on that puppy.

Hell, if this goes well, it may become a recurring feature.


Get cracking, kids.
