CRAzy Captioning for Fun Day Sunday–RA’s John Characters, 11/13/11 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #53)

This is our 4th Sunday of having fun with using pictures from the oh so talented and prolific British Actor Richard Armitage’s (RA) film roles and putting humorous captions to them.  Given that we have over 170 views  for each of these weekly posts, this activity seems to be a popular fun diversion for everyone–including me.  I enjoy finding the pictures and putting the captions to them.  And, the captions are all in the spirit of fun.

The first two picture and caption examples were ones I came up with while chatting with my gal pals over in Armitage World.  But, I also appreciate your suggestions and input.    So, if you have suggestions for pictures for future CRAzy Captioning Sundays, please share their URL with me via comments to this post by Friday of next week–because I prep Sunday’s post on Saturday.

I’ve provided some initial caption suggestions.  Now the real fun of CRAzy Captioning begins when you provide your caption suggestions for images A – E below.  Don’t be shy.  You’re often funnier than I am.  So, please share caption your ideas–even if you only have one caption to share–by commenting on this blog post, labeling the caption with whichever image letter applies.

Cheers!  Grati  ;->

P.S.  A disclaimer, that unless a quote is actually attributed to a film–and its citation reference appears below the picture–the captions are pure fiction.

Image A Caption:
“Twern’t  brilliant.”  I’ve got no cell phone.  And when I put my coins into this box in the men’s room–trying to make a phone call–all it’s giving me is a small box,  for a different kind of connection.

I’m toned, toweled, and time is not on my side in this story’s plot.  Fancy a … trip to the pub for some beer?
(No wonder Ian ends up in a freezer.)

Image E Caption:
Beware of Do it Yourself Geeks Bearing Fish & Chips.

P.S.  This caption is a play on words of the phrase, “beware of Greeks bearing gifts”–that refers to the Trojan Horse myth.  I know, if you have to explain it, it’s not funny.  Sighhhh!

(E) Here is that RANet image link of John Mulligan–as portrayed by Richard Armitage–from Moving On:  Drowning Not Waving (2009).

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
