Just a reminder of the rules:

You try to come up with a family-friendly caption to the shot posted.

Whoever posts the current picture is the judge of the competition: judging should take place 24 hours after posting the picture, or no later than 48 hours if 10 entries haven't been received within the first 24 hours. Any reminders to the judge should be sent by PMl if necessary.

Judges, please announce first, second and third place with a PM to the winner.

Winner posts the next picture; if the winner doesn't respond in 24 hours, the second place is up, etc.

Chat between rounds (judging has occurred, but the next picture isn't up yet) is allowed.[/quote]

This is NOT what they meant in the 1960s by "flower children."

I don't believe this thread is officially closed. It's just dormant while the winner is AWOL.

I think they're talking about beets #51 which closed with just 239 posts and no last post saying see you in Beets #52.

My fault-I should have done so. That should be added to the rules. I apologize.

Now can we get back to pics please?

Oh geeze, sorry. I totally forgot I had to post a pic.

You are an ET explorer, writing a report about Earth. You included numerous pictures of humans and other creatures. How do you caption this one?
