Simply Irresistible

Spotted on the way into town today:

Another 358 days to go until Halloween?

Poor guy. I can't tell if he's depressed, sulking, or just falling to pieces because he's doing NaNoWriMo. Or maybe he's watching an ant pile. He looks like kind of an airhead, don't you think?

What caption would you write for this photograph? Post yours in comments (or if you can't think of a caption, just throw your name in the hat) by midnight EST on Sunday, November 9, 2008. I will pick one name from everyone who participates and send the winner a surprise. To add a little mystery, I won't say what the surprise is, but my past winners can tell you that my surprises are always pretty good. This giveaway is open to everyone on the planet, even if you've won something here at PBW in the past.

    Jack figured this topped the list of places he had woken up hungover, if only he could figure out how to get down.


    Thats the best I got. Though I did get a good laugh out of the picture. I can just imagine him grumbling and glaring down at the ground.
