Thursday’s Photo Caption Contest

tube

"I am product #751600"

This week’s winner is PaulO, who won us over with his creepy and vaguely dystopian caption “I am product # 751600.” He wins 30% off a numbered product of his choosing at our eStore.

And if you think this tube is an escape route from child-shaped robots run amok, you would be partially right! This picture comes from the holdings of the National Archives at Kansas City. It’s actually a fire escape from 1924, and the caption tells us it “Drops from second story of brick building; small child is sitting in the end of the tube”–though this does not assure us that it is a human child.

This week’s photo is from America’s Heartland. Let us know what you think could possibly be going on here! As always, the winner recieves 30% off at our eStore.

Here’s a suggestion to get you started, “Myrtle knew a quality tablecloth when she saw it!” nose
