  3. Rodney Dill says:

    Here at OTB we promote safety in blogging, and consequently only release Caption Contests under stringent Controls. After careful scrutiny the FDA has determined that reading OTB Contest Captions almost never cause permanent brain damage. In the attached photo, one of the safety control crash tests shows the impact of a Laurence Simon caption on the brain of an unsuspecting blogger.
