Haiku’d Be You Friday

Haiku FridayLeaving for Scotland
Thought about this weeks ago
Well…why the heck not?

Here’s the idea
A photo with your caption
You win, you get stuff*

Not just any stuff
Scottish/British things
Right to your wee door

Cut off for caption submission is midnight ET Monday 10th March
Get crack-a-lackin’ (post your caption in the comments section)

*A children’s book, chocolate, something with tartan on it. Or, something of your own choosing.

  1. When you’re over there you should pick up The Gruffalo. It’s a kids book I’ve not seen out here. You’re boys’ll love it. Hell, I love it!

  2. Wow…I’m just speechless with that photo. Not sure I’ll be able to come up with words and not retching.

  3. Hee hee! Love the photo; will have to think about the caption and come back and post my try!

  4. Great shot, will leave the captions for those who are good at these stuff. Plus not really in much need to British stuff 🙂

  5. Caption:
    “Beulah Mae was not going to let this unplanned pregnancy stand in the way of her NFL hopes and dreams.”


    “Bertha’s doctors told her not to return to the field a mere 4 days after giving birth, but she just couldn’t miss the championship game!”

    Gosh that’s a funny pic!

  6. Oh I would love to win. Here’s my contribution for the caption:

    Maybe eating ALL those Girl Scout Cookies wasn’t a good idea.

  7. he’s not playing fair…he’s hiding a water balloon in his shirt!!

  8. Caption:

    He thought the Coach said “EAT their defense, not BEAT their defense.”

  9. Lol! Great picture!
    A caption eh… let’s see….

    “Dude! Can you find the football? I can’t see it anywhere…wait a minute…Coach! Stan ate the ball again!”

    “The Biggest Loser, Pro Sports Edition!! Coming soon to cable near you!”

  10. In space, no one can hear you scream.

  11. That’s a football player in need of some serious diet & exercise (or it’s a hoax of some kind), but I’ll pass on the captioning thing for now and let others play. Hope you enjoy your visit to Scotland!
    Hugs and blessings,

  12. That’s just gross. Caption later.

  13. Bobby Ray, I hate to say it, but it looks like those Spanx of yours aren’t cutting it any more.

    [Great photo, Siobhan. It points out a real difference between American football and British football, doesn’t it.]

  14. “And so Shrek’s football career began…”

    Great photo and ‘ku!

  15. That’s hilarious! Hmm. . . a caption….I don’t think my brain is fully functioning right now. Maybe I’ll come up with one later!

  16. I’m not even going to try to compete with some of these. Hilarious – thanks for a good laugh.

  17. “Does this make me look fat?”

    “Who shrunk the uniforms again!?!?”

    One player says to him straight-faced, “Have you been working out?”

  18. Helmet: $175.00
    Knee pads, shoulder guards and cleats: $250.00
    Uniform: $125.00

    Force Flexible Containment Body Pullover w/ Tummy Tucking Technology® built in for that OH so slim line look: PRICELESS

    For out of shape Blivets who’s mantra is ‘Beer: it’s what’s for breakfast’; this is the ticket.
    For everyone else, there’s Jenny Craig.

  19. See, like I was atellin’ ya’, ya’ gotta’ be very fit to play ‘mericun football. We’re not like all of them skinny dudes playin’ with that thar’ spotty round ‘un.

    And, now taking the field, the Edinburgh Muffin Tops!

    I’m so excited for you. Has the packing started now?

  21. The player on the right says:”Man, somebody stole your ASS!”

  22. “He hoped the coach wouldn’t notice his pregnancy and still let him play linebacker this season.”

    Gross pic, by the way.

  23. “Dude, I didn’t think they’d let you play in your third trimester.”


    “Did anyone bring an extra football? Bubba ate it again.”

  24. with apologies to mike meyers (stewart):

    Gut! Ball! Now!
    Move that belly of yours and get the football if you can!
    Haulin’ that gargantuan stomach about!
    I’m not kidding, that boy’s gut’s like Sputnik!
    Spherical, but quite saggy in parts.
    Well, that was off sides, wasn’t it?
    He’ll be crying himself to sleep tonight on his huge mattress!
