Caption Contest!

Tuesday, Jun 26, 2007

Y’all are kinda boring me today. Or maybe it’s the other way around. Anyway, the best caption for this weird little photo wins a free t-shirt or other choice of merchandise at our charity site.

And, for the love of God, don’t get me in trouble with the Catholics. Daley I can handle. Nuns, no way. Thanks.
