Thursday’s Photo Caption Contest

Today’s post comes from National Archives Office of Strategy and Communications staff writer Rob Crotty.

Pull my hoof

Pull my hoof.

Rick B. won our hearts and minds with his caption last week of a donkey with a dangerous back blast. Understated, eloquent, simple in its beauty. Kudos, Rick, you’ve won 30% off at the National Archives eStore. An honorable mention must also go out to M.G. Young‘s double entendre caption: “This recoil will kick your ass!”

What exactly is going on in this picture? Good question. The caption reads “recoilless rifle mounted on a mule” and the photo comes from Fort Leavenworth and the Department of Defense. That still doesn’t exactly explain why someone would mount a giant rifle on the back of a mule. No word if the equine saw combat.

Anyhoo, onto this week’s photo. Give us your funniest caption for this peculiar photo and you’ll win 30% off at our eStore and the gratitude of a nation.

Insert your caption!

    “That still doesn’t exactly explain why someone would mount a giant rifle on the back of a mule. ”

    the recoilless rifle was mounted on the mule so that it could be transported in mountainous regions inaccessible by truck. It was never meant to be fired from the mule’s back.
    potential areas where this would have been used was Italy and Korea

    Jimmy dreamed of a day when coal-slide parks would enchant all the children of the world.
    If only he could make the slides less-chafey and minimize the black lung with some sort of substance…
