A tiger in your tank

OK, so everyone's tired of stuffed suits and even stuffier royals. Exalted kudos will rain upon the one who pens the best caption for this photo.

I think everyone is just wise to your cheap ploy to not actually have to write a blog post and still get comments. If you're going to have a contest you have to award a prize. You just can't keep having contests with no winners and no prizes. That's not a contest. That's just a cheap ploy to not actually have to write a blog post and still get comments.

I think the prize should be dinner with the IO.

Tiger1: I think we're being exploited as a cheap ploy by the Elgin Street Irregulars.

Tiger2: Indeed.

Tiger3: Actually, I thought this was another RNDP bit. I'm not wearing a bathing suit.

I don't have a caption or a critique I just really, really love this picture. It made me cry tears of joy and wake up my boyfriend to show him the tigers.

Woodsy said...

XUP, what about the exalted Kudos? Isn't that a fabulous prize?

Woodsy said...

Lily, I like how you think. IO, what do you say?

Aggie said...

Tiger #1: Is this an Emergency Meeting?
Tiger #2: It is if we say so.
Tiger #3: We are in the Usual Spot....

"Do you think we should try to outrun the fire, or just stay here?"

Waiter! More iced drinks with little paper umbrellas, and cheeseburgers, all 'round! XUP pays!

The Independent Observer said...

XUP, you see through me like a damp bargain-brand paper towel.

Jo: How nice. Much better than the other kind of tears.

Woodsy: Yes, you might think exalted kudos would be reward enough. But Lily's idea (though aww shucks blush-inducing) is a fine one. I must, however, remind her and others that in order to be eligible they should submit an actual caption. Unless of course I decide to arbitrarily waive that requirement.

Fellow ESI readers, XUP is right. We are being had - I believe the ESI is having a contest to see which member can get the most comments without actually having to come up with content. In other words, we are cheap pawns in their dirty little one-up-manship shenanigans. May I respectfully suggest a post-modern twist to the ESI? Let your readership determine 1) which ESI will win and 2) what their prize will be.

I think I'm in love!

A commenter who gets us.

The Independent Observer said...

I feel so ... dirty.

Plonk urself into dat baftub wif dem nice kittyz, den...

Aggie said...

Who is this "Lily"?

coyote said...

Maybe somebody's made themselves a sockpuppet?

Not that I'm pointing claws at anybody specific, or anything...

4th Dwarf said...

Coyote,

(a) It's downright churlish of you to make such an accusation of a charming commenter.

(b) Who would she be a sockpuppet of? One of the legions of commenters who don't get us? That makes no sense.

coyote said...

Dwarf, surely the Irregulars cannot be the only internauts into cheap ploys!

I'm just sayin'.

Now, 'scuse me - it's time to churl up and take a nap.

Lily said...

I see I have a dashing dwarfish defender. Begone churlish cur!

coyote said...

Oh, it's never that easy...
