Thursday caption contest

"I'm just saying, I think I saw a shark, but it could have been something else."

Congratulations, Teresa Martin Klaiber, for bringing a smile to the face of Gwen Granados, our guest judge from the National Archives at Riverside. She shared this photograph with us, and we all agreed it was eminently caption-worthy. (Teresa, if you send an e-mail to prologue@nara.gov, I can send you your 15% discount code to use at the National Archives eStore.)

The photograph is in a file on “Porpoises, 1965–1967,” among the records of the  11th Naval District in Record Group 181, Records of Naval Districts and Shore Establishments. Its original caption reads, “Sam the Sea Lion and his trainer Walley Ross.”

OK, captioners, get your thinking caps on for this week’s challenge. This Sunday is Mother’s Day, so maybe these ladies are celebrating their day! Write your own caption in the comments section at the bottom of this page.

  1. Just like mom told you, “in case there’s an accident, make sure you wear clean underwear.”

  2. And now, here’s a still from the filming of that hot girl group ” The Boulevard Babes” cover the Dobie Bros – Takin’ It To The Streets !

  3. Come on ladies they can take are keys, but they will never stop us from going to bingo!

  4. “Agnes stop looking at the camera! This isn’t a beauty contest — it’s a race!”

  5. I’m tired of all those old men whistling at us. You would think they have never seen girls on bikes before.
