Thursday’s Photo Caption Contest

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

“New Army Dirigibles give Doughboy Morale a Lift”
“New Army Dirigibles give Doughboy Morale a Lift”

These doughboys’ morale could use a lift, Bryan, because the original caption reads “three 5,000 cubic feet Nurse Balloons in Hangar. Fort Sill, Oklahoma, May 1, 1918.” So far as we can tell there are two balloons, not three in this photo, meaning these soldiers are one dirigible short and probably have some explaining to do. Your winning caption has won you 30% off at the National Archives eStore and the undying gratitude of the POH staff.

This week we got into the ghoulish spirit of the season and found a photo that could use a bit of sprucing up, at least so far as the caption goes. You know the rules! Give us your funniest caption, and the one that makes us laugh the most wins!

*** UPDATE *** Our guest judge this week is the National Archives Chief of Staff Deb Wall. Win her over with laughter and you’ll win 30% off at the eStore. Good luck!

  1. Cinderella, age 67, spends her days recalling that one glorious night when her dress became a gown and her pumpkin actually turned into a coach.

  2. I cant believe I still have more than a mile to go to get this thing home, before all the trick or treaters get there!

  3. Mrs. Peter Pumpkin-Eater nodded to herself as she murmured grimly, “Two can play this game.”

  4. Like Linus and Sally, Grannie stayed up all night waiting for the Great Pumpkin and got robbed out of her trick or treats.
