Who wants to take a crack at captioning this one?

Believing he would not pass the test, Jim left his sample outside the clinic and returned home.

THE JAVA JIVE

I love coffee, I love tea
I love the Java Jive
And it loves me
Coffee and tea and the java and me
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup
(Boy!)

Oh come on, your caption requests are pure torture to me.

Trish said...

oh please..men can't hit the entire toilet, how on EARTH are they going to manage to hit this teeny cup on a sidewalk outside of Thrifty's? ;-)

Hard to imagine a better caption than Mr. Earl's! Here's a shot at it:

The invisible homeless man rarely succeeded at panhandling.

After the family dynamic at the annual Johnston Thanksgiving get together, Phil just had to get away and have a quick snort of whiskey.......

Walking deserted streets always makes Hector The Cup feel so empty inside.

Spare change?

You are all very entertaining!

I can't think of a thing although I could spend an hour analyzing the composition. Too many years in art school I guess, where we would have to title it: Composition in Green White and Red. We're no fun. Thank goodness for you literary types!

The one thing that comes to mind (besides the fact that I love Mr. Earl's) is that the wall will be long gone before that cup biodegrades...

My friend Susan Werner, a singer-songwriter who grew up on a farm near Manchester, Iowa, wrote a song called Barbed Wire Boys with the line:

And the men I knew when I was coming up
Were sober as coffee in a Styrofoam cup

Mister Earl said...

Pasadena Adjacent: Thanks. Are you really from the Northeast?

Mister Earl said...

Somehow, a visit to Hiker's blog this evening has affected me, caused me to caption, "What's your cup size?"

WV: seshaper

Laurie said...

Earl, you win the gold star for this one. I have been chuckling about it all day.

Welcome GoMiami!

Yak, you came up with the same idea I thought of.

I love the Caption This Photo posts so much (even though the Hiker hates them) because you are all so very clever!!!

Until next time...

Mr. Earl's on a roll and I'm rolling! I'm with Hiker though. These caption requests make me anxious because I can't ever think of a thing. So what do i do? I leave a comment about absolutely nuttin'!

Virg: You're awesome, as is the Hiker and and the Laurie. Funny, but I could caption all day long, and come back for more. I have a warning on my wall: If your captioning lasts more than four hours, see a doctor immediately.

Too funny! I loved Mister Earl's too!
