A Picture and a Contest December 11, 2010

A Picture and a Contest

Between a Speech Team tournament all of today and a friend’s wedding tonight, I’m out of commission most of this weekend. But here’s a random story:

I was looking through some old family photos last night when I came across one I’d never seen before… it’s my dad holding me right after I was born.

I think the look on his face says everything 🙂

Got an amusing caption for it? Leave it in the comments 🙂

I’ll pick my favorite next week and the winner will receive a copy of the just-released Australian Book of Atheism edited by Warren Bonett. (Thanks to Embiggen Books for the prize!)

Be creative and entertaining! If you’d like to be in the running for the prize, just make sure the word “dingo” appears at the end of your comment…
