Winner of the YesBut's Image - Caption of the Week Award

Another week, another challenge in trying to decide which of the many captions posted should be awarded the accolade of Caption of the Week.

I really wish more people would vote, in order to relieve me of the strain and stress of having to chair a meeting of YesBut’s Editorial team. I’ll save you the trouble of reading an account of the abuse hurled - Mrs Mop can be so undignified sometimes and Mrs YesBut always reacts.

After several hours a shortlist was drawn up consisting of:

From Sunday

Ozlady’s - “ Rider: "I think that with this motor we should have a chance of beating him this year"
Pillion: "Yes, but there's two of us..."

From Tuesday

David McMahon's - "Flagging spirits"

From Thursday

Doug 's - "Rider: 'If I could only unglue this guy from my back I might have a chance of winning'."

Chewy 's - "On Your Mark, Get Set, PUSH!"


"It's all downhill from here."

Anonymous 's - "Despite the cutbacks in funding, the British manned expedition to Mars was finally ready to launch.."

David McMahon 's - "Back on da chain gang"

And finally from Friday

Bart 's - "Okay, you down in a row like this; I'll go get a motorcycle to jump over you."

Eight captions, but there can only be one winner, and one runner-up - a very difficult choice.

Finally it was decided the runner up was:

David McMahon's - "Flagging spirits"

This caption has two meanings, the non-obvious one being - the photo was taken at the rehearsals for the celebrations for the re-opening of the Royal Festival Hall. By the afternoon, all concerned were getting rather exhausted and fed up.

The winner because it was so zany,

Anonymous’s caption -

"Despite the cutbacks in funding, the British manned expedition to Mars was finally ready to launch.."

If you disagree with the choice, then please leave a comment.

Why, sir, thank you for the honour. And I do agree that the Mars caption was the worthy winner.
