Thursday Photo Caption Contest

"Kicking off a new school year, the West Bridge Conga Line Team was optimistic, but Betty’s non-regulation black shoes foreshadowed disaster."

Did you miss us? We were on a brief hiatus, but we’re back with more bizarre and baffling photographs from our holdings, ready for your cleverest captions!

So who won the winning caption for our last photo? We turned to the newest member of our team, writer Victoria Yue (you may remember her post about waffles). After careful consideration, she went with Erica‘s conga line reference. Congratulations, Erica! Check your e-mail for a code for 15% off at our eStore.
