Coming soon: foto di Roma

Anita and I spent all last week in Rome — on vacation no less! There will be lots of photos on Flickr soon.

To get us started on the right foot, the Bugle is delighted to announce a new contest with a Very Special Prize. The specific rules for this contest will appear in a later post. For now, here’s the idea: This photo needs a caption. (Click on the photo to see the large size.)

Let’s see your captions in the comments to this post. We’ll start awarding BuglePointsâ„¢ immediately!

    “We’ve been happy together for six months and she makes a great martini. I just wish that Mr. Fluffypants liked her.”

    “That’s the thing about a haunted house. The poltergeist bartender is great, but that zombie-panther is freaking me out.”

    If Wiskers doesn’t lose the attitude, I will turn him into a chair like I did our last pet!

    Dave gets 20 points for his concentration on the relative nudity of the relief.

    Keely gets 40 points for her attention to the detail that Anita and Will cared about — the drink — plus 20 points for her attention to nudity, for a total of 60 points earned for this caption.

    Rachel gets 40 points for making Anita laugh out loud and 5 points for the mention of taxidermy. To all this, the staff apply a multiplier of 3 because Will didn’t get the joke until after Anita did, and yet he thinks that it is funny. Thus, Rachel earns a total of 135 points for her caption above.

    John Reed gets 25 points for the mention of zombies.

    Anita and Will don’t get any points, in accord with the Rules of the Contest. If they were eligible, they would get 900 points each, of course.
