  1. Davod says:

    The Eiffel Tower in Sydney. Positioned using directions for Norther Hemisphere.

  2. McGehee says:

    What — my “lawn darts” one didn’t even make the bottom of the barrel?

  3. Rodney Dill says:

    Obviously another casuality of boneheaded judging.

  4. Rodney Dill says:

    If you haven’t noticed the bottom of the barrel have always been my captions and don’t otherwise appear in the contest

  5. Bithead says:

    I mis-type a whole movie script… (Chuckle)

  6. Rodney Dill says:

  7. Bithead says:

    Don’t be sorry… I was cracking a (poor) joke, here. Don’t take it as any more serious than that.

  8. McGehee says:

    If I give honorable mention to all the funny ones, I’d have over half the total list repeated.

Having someone comment that they like one of my captions or complain about one because now they feel that have to beat it was always as good for me as being mentioned with the winners. To each his own, I guess
