Caption this photo... (#9)

Yeah... I don't know what it is either. But I saw it on the ground near the bike rack at Mission Station. Who wants to take a crack at writing a caption for it?

It's a stop sign for a Gopher, it's much more humane then a Gopher trap.

"Baby Huey wondered what happened to one of the pieces from his Rack-A-Stack."

The Jolly Green Giant could not remember where he had placed the washer for the bolt of his erector set.

The south end of the city dump.

Mister Earl said...

Careful, Judy.

"The massive boiler explosion on Colorado Boulevard in 2006 completely destroyed an art gallery, a clothing boutique, and Le Sex Shoppe. For years afterward, pieces of Le Sex Shoppe's inventory could be found as far as 20 miles away."

It is an 'Eye' along a very straight nose (that is also a gravestone). The electrical box supplies power to the gave for some strange and unknown reason. The eye keeps watch. And that's perhaps a little too revealing of how my imagination works!

It's a little black hole in the process of healing itself. If you went back there, all you'd find is an octagon.

Now that I've finished the base of my sculpture I will continue on the actual body of the piece. I'm glad I had the electrical outlet put in so I can use my jack hammer on the 10 ton piece of marble. The finished piece will depict an elephant standing on his trunk.
The hole in the base is for the trunk. Dam I hope I made the base big enough.

It's either an Aztec fertility symbol or the base from one of those orange highway pylons.

How typical of me that I can only think: :Doughnut."

No caption but if i do know if I came across it and it wasn't bolted down I'd take it

Trish said...

reality---it appears to be the plack plastic/rubber base for a tall orange traffic standard.

captioning---see what happens when you tie Fido to the electrical pole---he licks the electrical outlet and is shot somewhere into Pasadena and all that is left is his octo-chew toy.

Poor Fido, never saw it coming!

Trish said...

an after lunch thought---

all that was left was the stump and the nut---I can only imagine what sized bolt that came off of!

Virginia said...

I was going to say, " I''m just a bolt looking for a screw" but somehow it came out all wrong so just scratch me for this one.

Good luck my friend...

Sorry I can't meet the challenge - no good at that sort of stuff!
Sorry I haven't been commenting much lately - combination of life circumstances. SDP has had a 3rd birthday and you're invited to the party!

Virg: You're onto something!

Fintip: You need electricity in a grave to power the buzzer that's installed in all coffins just in case you're buried alive. I think the buzzers in newer coffins are battery powered. This must be an older grave site.

Jack was disappointed with the magic beanstalk seeds he purchased from Bernie Madoff,

Shanna said...

I'm still laughing !!!! Thanks everyone.

Judy Williams said...

Yak - your comments beat all others hands down.

MrE: sounds like you may be into something.

Laurie said...

Well this is definitely the most fun I've had in a while! It's like Monty Python meets Fellini with a little Judd Apatow thrown in. (Sorry. You know how I think in terms of films.)

I love these. In fact, there is no possible way I can come up with anything after these. (I'm still laughing about the black hole closing up. It's not easy to make astrophysics funny!)

I love you guys. Thanks for these!

Until tomorrow...

Kim said...

OMG, how fun and funny your reader's stories/captions are.

Would you like to know what it really is? Shall I break the mystique? We use these to create a temporary fence around a play area at our school. This is the heavy rubber base that an orange pole fits in. Think of it as a tall caution marker. I imagine it is to warn cars away from running over the electrical outlet. I love your black and white treatment and composition. Really nice.

OOooooo, my verification word is "merci"!

Andrew said...
