Not entirely sure of the rules, but I believe we have enough entries?

I'll wait till midnight Pacific to give the colonists one more chance.

My apologies for leaving this open so long.
I just now finished rebuilding my computer after a major glitch.
So now I'm faced with an impressive variety of entries proving quite difficult to rank.


Start with honorable mention to KWSN-HHG for the only entry that actually hit both pics with a single caption.
"Cubic Feline drivers - even worse than Female Oriental drivers".
(We'll gloss over the profiling.)

Looking first at the cube captions...

3rd was Stephen Meyer with
"Wolf, Goat, Cabbage. The next-gen of Rock, Paper, Scissors."

2nd was rob smith with
"Goat eats cabbage - happy goat; Wolf eats goat - happy wolf;
Wolf eats cabbage -wolf gets bad wind; Cabbage wins!"


1st Most interesting lateral interpretation of the cube was Chris S with
"Jason's design for a secure framework to store produce from predators wasn't coming on too well ...."

Now on to the uberkat...

4th Best of the "Beep Beep/Out of my Way" cluster was Steven Meyer with
"OUTTA MY WAY! I HAZ 30 SECONDS TO GET THIS PIZZA DELIVERED OR ITZ OUTTA MY PAYCHECK!"

3rd John Mcleod VII got close with
"Watch the Birdie!"
which I assume referred to a speed camera though he didn't actually say that.

2nd For originality Monday with
"You know that dream where suddenly you're in a car doing 100mph and you can't drive because you've turned into a cat."

1st But for lateral thinking combined with succintness Julie wins with
"O SOLE MIOOOO...!"

So spinning a coin between Chris S and Julie....it's Chris S.
PM on it's way.


P.S. If you think your entry was better than these, it's probably that I didn't understand it :)

I think the framework one was really just a teaser, the real one was the cat picture, as you intimated. And as I have won quite a few of these now, as a gentleman, I would like to let Julie take the win. If she declines then I will do it :-)

According to the rules (1st post in this thread) "Winner posts the next picture; if the winner doesn't respond in 24 hours, the second place is up, etc." So as judge I will declare Julie to be the 2nd place and Chris can just lean back.

Go Julie, go...

Why do they call them waiters, when I am the one waiting for them to fill my plate?
