Yes I know, dear, museum fatigue is a bummer.

Looking more closely at background, would like to modify slightly:
"Quelle Horreur! Those kneehighs are so NOT chic!"
& isn't there some rule about employees & proprietors & all their family members not entering competitions, B? Like, shouldn't you be disqualified?

"What you lookin' at? You all a bunch of fuckin' assholes. You need people like me so you can point your fuckin' fingers and say, "That's the bad guy." "
Opps, wrong caption contest.

It took Mr l'Autelier some months to discover why his wife had left him on that fateful day.

"I wonder if that woman looking in that window, knows she has a hole in her stocking . I must remember to think about confronting my husband about the affair he's having with that wretched girl, Evelyn. Oh Lordy, I hate headspace today"
"Jesus Christ I need to fart. Why are men so obsessed with bottoms, this is terribly tedious and he's going to want me chase him around with that riding crop later."
"Oooh my goodness, I think I've just found a hole in my tooth" My my, look at the girl's arse and those boots! Saucy or what?"

Oh. It's a mirror!

norabone, indeed a wise man once said, before he was taken round the back, blindfolded and taken aim at, "the arse is a mirror to the soul", and as that other wise dichter, Johann Gottfried Von Herder also said: "Touch not the flute when bums are sounding around."
[channels TT.] "Oh non! That's me in the frame again. The gilt! the gilt!"
"Is there a proctologist in da house?" (Sorry, tranzilated the wrong Nabakov caption fantasy.)

"& isn't there some rule about employees & proprietors & all their family members not entering competitions, B? Like, shouldn't you be disqualified?"
No correspondence will be entered into, nyah.
(glides off on brand new pair of roller skates mysteriously acquired in mail, with complimentary chocolates and a year's subscription to "Australian Proctologist")
Actually I should explain: as well as suggesting this contest, Nabakov chose and supplied pic, so he be tha Judge.
As for me - I think I will swipe that phrase of Link's from now on:
"Oh Lordy, I hate headspace today"...
Contest still going AFAIK.

It was only then that Edwina realised she'd left the house with no underpants on.

"Mon Dieu! Les Sans Culottes have struck again. First my Deux Cheveux and now l'Académie des Beaux-Arts. Marie, take me home, I feel in a condition of swoon."
"Oh really maman, the car was insured and we've all seen those fotos of your Moulin Rouge days on le web."
Posted by Nabakov at November 10, 2005 04:41 PM
That's quite a mouthful, Nabs. It looks more like she's sputtering "Gosh!" (en français, of course) round a beurre-less croy-zant. Or even a La Salada.

Tony T's 'the eye does follow you' wins. Still, perhaps I'm being one-eyed, or even biassed.

"I wonder if the Chloe in 24 looks like that?"
Posted by cs at November 10, 2005 11:46 PM
Woman: "Sacre bleu what are doing monsieur?"
Man: "I'm having a tug whilst watching a naked woman's arse"
I'd like to donate my winnings to charity.

What's the prize?
Posted by Damien at November 17, 2005 07:43 PM
The prize is thinking up a prize? (the exclusive rights thereof)
Or will that comment win the prize, Damien?
Posted by boynton at November 17, 2005 09:10 PM
Preliminary research on this would seem to indicate that Prizes can be a can o worms...

Putain de merde!! Cela cochon!
It was for this reason
that he had me wear those long blue stockings!

Anyone'd swear she could see.
