Ha ha. Nope, neither whale or worm, although both do collect material in their open mouth to process it. I thought someone might suggest a pelican...

The answer is, of course, a buzzard!

(Carlos' recent caption game picture)

While worrying that a dog was not a good model for testing a ramjet , it occurred to me that there is indeed a perfect creature for such testing. Would anyone like to suggest which? I will leave this a couple of days for any suggestions...

Good captions, particularly those from the young lady's point of view.

In third place is rob smith:
Car crash?
What car crash??

Second is Carlos:
I love my insurance job.

And the winner is the Admiral:
Another commission check for me from the auto repair shop.

Carlos and the Admiral pretty well tied this time, but somehow the idea was a bit funnier with the auto shop! A courier is on his way with the notification and I have told him to keep his eyes on the road!
