Fun Day Sunday: CRAzy Captioning, Team Leather with “Our” Guy, 9/02/12 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #261)

CRAzy Captioning is where I take an image from a Richard Armitage character and put a caption to it–putting a new spin on the image, hopefully to humorous result.  Often, I seek image and caption suggestions from my readers and friends–as I did for this post.  And the first two images and their first line of the captions were suggested by one of my online friends over in RAFN who wishes to remain anonymous.

Now it must be said, that I have the utmost respect for Richard Armitage and his searing character portrayals.  My lady RA fan friends and I write volumes analyzing: his roles and their plot lines in terms of their symbolism, the subtle references to classical figures and stories, and why Mr. Armitage touches our souls with such exquisitely heartfelt authenticity through his varied roles that he brings to life.  The lively discussions and astute insights we share in these analyses are both invigorating and edifying.

But, we also perceive that Richard Armitage has a lively sense of humor–tucked carefully behind his dramatic actor persona.  Who can forget his charming role as Harry Kennedy in The Vicar of Dibley?  And as you know if you visit my blog here with any regularity, I have a funny bone that I exercise now and again.  Mine is a humorously skewed, but always polite–and sometimes a teensy bit saucy–perspective on the world.   And so without further ado, fanfare, or stalling, here are three new examples of CRAzy Captioning for you to enjoy.

Now the really fun part comes with you suggesting alternative captions of your own for each image with your comments.    Enjoy!

Cheers!   Grati  ;->

P.S.  I have also put the full caption and image credit references on each graphic–so that when you download it you have the full information.

Sir Guy:
  “Did I see some white hair in Marian?”
Marian:  “Well if you did see some, it is because I’m growing old playing you and Robin against each other.
Sir Guy:  “There is a solution–ditch Forest Boy.   Then come back to my Locksley Guy & Gal Salon & Spa for a touch up.”  Marian looks at me askance.  “Now now, I’m not being rude—unless you want me to be.”  *smirk*

Sir Guy:  “All a knight really needs is his horse, some leather, and his sword.  I named mine, Gaia–because she is sharp, shiny, and sexy—like me.  And, to keep the goddess on my side.”

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
