Fun Day Sunday–CRAzy Captioning, 10/23/11 GratianaDS90 (Post #37)

It always tickles my funny bone when I see a photo of something I’m familiar with that has a funny caption to it–proposing an alternative explanation.  So for Fun Day Sunday today, I thought it might be amusing to take some of the talented British actor Richard Armitage’s photos or scene clips we know and love and propose some cRAzy captions to go to them.  We’ll have five picture examples–labeled A, B, C, D, and E.  And I’ll start out with a caption for each of them.  Then, if you feel so inclined, please provide your own funny caption for one or more of the pictures.  And depending upon the response to this idea, we might make CRAzy Captioning a recurring Fun Day Sunday game for us to play.

Why choose Richard Armitage’s photos?  Well, he is so artistically prolific and his roles are so varied that there is a lot to work with.  And, this is a unique and fun way to indulge our enjoyment of him and his work.  So, I’m starting out today with some of Richard Armitage’s photo shoots and event appearance photos.  Enjoy!

Gratiana’s Caption for picture A:  “Vulcan Mr. Spock/Richard meets James Bond/Greg at a September 17, 2010 radio interview:  ‘Live Long and Let Die’”.

Gratiana’s Caption for picture B (JRM MCphotoshoot):   “Richard:  This kilt is rather chilly as a costume for a photo shoot.  Nice socks though, I could have used them in BTS.    I just hope they don’t want me to wax my legs, too.  That’s where I draw the line.”

Gratiana’s Caption for picture C (2003 Promo pix):   “Richard:  I really can dance.  I was in CATS, you know.  It’s just that I’m stalling because they want me to take my kit off for the rest of this 2003 photo shoot.”

Gratiana’s Caption for picture D (2005 Vivid Magazine pose):  “Richard:  I feel like I’m trapped in a Salvador Dali painting.  Except, I’m brushing up on my impressionists for the role of Claude Monet next year.  Give me a water lily any day of the week.”

Gratiana’s Caption for picture E (2006 Sunday Times Promo):  “Richard:  ‘I’m practicing my mysterious smoulder gaze since they cast me as Sir Guy of Gisborne this year.  Is it working?”

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11

    Great idea, Gratia! Here are a few more suggestions:

    A) Richard: The Kid can pray all he wants; he doesn’t have the eyebrows for Bond.
    B) Richard: The sassanach made me wax ma legs. Ah feel like a wee sleekit, timourous beastie.
    C) Auditioned for Dancing with the Stars. Tripped over my boots. Dropped Sarah Caulfield…
    D) Auditioned for Dr. WHAT? I do levitation, too!
    E) Is it lunch break yet? Smouldering takes so much out of you….

    I hope with the permission of Gratiana…
    Dear Friends,
    I started a blog where I write what was initially “Tales of the Wolf” , published in the Deusa Viva Journal . It’s a way I understand myself and share my story with you all. It is also a way to listen to their voices, thoughts and insights. So your comments are always greatly appreciated! In this blog I write about my life, my dreams, my quest, what inspires me, sometimes in the form of a tale or a story. There will always be an English version to meet my friends around the world who are not native to the Portuguese language. To them I owe special thanks to your patience because I recognize the weaknesses of my English, but this was the only way to isolate them from my world.
    See you there
    best regards ;0)

      Hi Ana Cris,
      I am so delighted that you have begun your own blog! I really enjoy your philosophically reflective essays. So much so, that I have linked your new blog over on my Blogroll listing on the right of this window. Thanks for sharing your momentous news with us.
      Cheers! Grati ;->

    Of course, I had to weigh in with a few more caption suggestions myself. Ha!:

    A: ‘I’m usually the tallest person in the room. Next to this kid, I feel like a Dwarf. Uh, I guess this is good practice.”
    B: ‎”I love the way this kilt showcases my bum–it’s my best feature.”
    C: “I so wanted to voice one of the characters in the animated film “Happy Feet”! This was my audition!”
    D: “I guess I drank too much light ale at the pub.”
    E: “You’re supposed to be looking at my eyes.”
