Caption contest!

We've been counting down the minutes till the long weekend, and now that it's here, you'll be hard pressed to pry me off the lawn chaise and away from my delicious stack of reading.

And it's certainly not a good time for discussions about ethics, royalty shenanigans or just plain boneheaded marketing, right?


(If you're curious why the above is boneheaded marketing, check my twitter feed for yesterday: @Janet_Reid)


It is however the perfect time for a caption contest.
Here's the photo:




25 words or fewer
Post in the comment section of this blog post.
None of the contest rules apply; just make sure I can tell it's an entry, not a comment.

I'll pry myself out of Vodkaville at some point this evening to close the contest and pick a winner.

Too late! Sorry! Contest closed now.

Laundry on the line or weeds in the pen. A feast in or out. No sheep in sight. No idiot boy to cry wolf. It's a good day to be a goat.
