you to all of our readers from The Polite Housewives
of Middle America who took part in our caption competition.
were asked to come up with a witty, instructive, helpful,
but not naughty at all, caption for the following picture:
winning entry, from Mrs Mary Gentle, was:
man is saying: "Just a quart of one of those melons
in a fresh fruit salad gives you all the vitamin E you
will need all day!"
runner up was from Mrs Margaret Smith:
man is saying: "Cut each melon in half, scoop
out the contents and they make excellent hats for children!"
woman is saying: "I'm not sure if the melon on
the left is slightly heavier than the melon on the right,
it might just be that my right arm is stronger than my
left arm. What do you think?"
man is saying: "I can juggle 10 of those melons
in the air at once! I can only catch two of them though!"
In an earlier edition of this story we accidentally put
up an entry from a member of the Hairy Bikers Association
of Utah, who was posing as a Gentle Housewife of Middle
America. The submitted caption, in which the man is saying:
"Phwor what a great pair of melons!!!"
has been disqualified from our competition and his email
address given to the police. We apologize unreservedly for
this moment of crudity.
