and there is a winner…


actually firstborn decided the hole count so he is the judge of that.

and my friend kamini, who authored AR Rahman’s bio, was the judge of the contest. she was a natural choice because she is COMPLETELY batty.

so the two judges have decided:
hole count = 17

and winner is the mindfull meanderer = shruti

kamini says she loved art’s caption (artnavy too got the answer right at 17) and almost declared her the winner — but shruti’s thoroughness/innovation in terms of counting made kamini decide in shruti’s favour.
spl congrats to shipa’s keen eyesight for also spotting 17 holes.

kamini says her fav. caption of the lot was the one by t.p.l.’s

do feel free to let everyone know who you thought was the WITTIEST, in your opinion..

I loved abha’s:-)
shruti do mail me your address and contact details — your autographed copy will reach you ASAP
thanks all for participating. it was so MUCH fun.
thanks to all the lurkers, first-time commenters, and non-bloggers for also participating πŸ™‚

    And MinM, I came here with my best Nemo face (as Nino calls my sulking pout) but then Poppins made my day πŸ™‚
    I want something sweet to make me feel better!

  8. Congrats to Shruti!

    My favourite captions were by AverageJane & myfloatingthoughts.

    This was much fun. Now MiM, since you’ve subtly mentioned “first” contest, I hope there are more to follow πŸ˜›

  9. I did not go past the photo of the holey object.

    It brought back memories of very violent acts of mine targeted at many such holey objects in the cupboard of the one i live with. Very very violent acts that include sharp scissors.

    If only a contest had been my catharsis. And not shreds that I held up in manic glee.

    But then MiM is the therapist. And I, the one in need of therapy.

    Congrats to all you witty souls. May you never need a catharsis like mine.

  10. Congrats Shruti! Your thesis was really awesome!

    Thanks to all the commenters who’ve appreciated my caption. *MFT takes a bow*
