Caption Contest #21

Yes, kids, it's time once again for another Bill of the Birds Caption Contest. Use the comment interface of this blog to submit your clever caption for the photo above and, if your entry is selected as the winner, you will receive a fabulous prize: a collector's edition copy of the ultra-rare, best-selling bird book Bird Watching For Dummies autographed by the author (if we can find him and get him sobered up enough to make his mark).

Back story: This photo shows Julie Zickefoose (left) and Wendy Eller (in blue jacket) performing a Rain Crows' song during my recent milestone birthday celebration. Backing the gals were members of The Realbillies (not shown) from Athens, Ohio. There was a stuffed black bear in the corner of the stage area and a friend took this photograph with my camera. I think the image opens up a world of caption possibilities and I cannot wait to see what y'all come up with!

Deadline is Tuesday March 20, 2012. Now start bruin up some funny captions!

I can bear-ly contain my excitement hearing these two lovelies sing a Rain Crows number!

Eeeew, Zicke, was that you? Zicke: that was foul, damn bear. Bear: heh, gotta quit eating owls. My eyes are watering.

JZ: "He has been in the shadows for too long—doing the work no-one sees, but everyone appreciates. He's been a part of the team for as long as there has been a team, and we quite literally could not function without him.

Ladies and gentlemen, it is my profound pleasure to introduce to you, Bill: our mushroom farming bear."

Listen to the Rain Crows. It's worth coming out of hibernation.

Dang, ripped off again... thought I paid to see The Barenaked Ladies perform and only realized after arriving that the ticket said "The Bearnaked Ladies."

Looking for "the bare necessities" Ol' Baloo finally finds the lady that stole his pawpaws.

Rain Crows rehearse for their upcoming gig at the nudist camp, singing with a bear behind.

What's Bill doing back there with his shirt off?

That's Bill Thompson singing background, for those that may not recognize him without his shirt.

Behind all great women is a big black bear.

Ladies and Gentleman: We need to announce that a bear is on the loose somewhere in our area but local government officials say they have the situation under control.

Next we would like to introduce Dr. Blackbear who is going to speak to us about the benefits of hibernation.

On March 15, 2012 at 8:36 AM Beyond My Garden said...

You promised me some time at the mike.

On March 15, 2012 at 9:49 AM CNemes said...

The Rain Crows weren't too worried that the bear would get hungry during their show--he was already stuffed.


P.S. I think Amy Girten takes the cake! LOL!

"I said, I seem to have mis-placed my BLACKBERRY..."

Mr. Black Bear: "Little Soldiers" is my favorite song.

On March 15, 2012 at 9:26 PM Johnnny said...

Now folks, please bear in mind, if you bear the brunt and just grin and bear it, you too will be loaded for bear.

What are you talkin' about? Did I hear Rain Crows? I guess I like Crows and I guess I like rain, but Rain Crows? Sounds interesting.

On March 15, 2012 at 11:18 PM Don Crockett said...

The Rain Bear. Not your average bear.

With the Grateful Dead no longer touring, the dancing bears have been looking for a good summer jam band and found one in the Rain Crows. Here, Cubby is chillin’ to Cotton Candy Sky.

On March 17, 2012 at 12:24 PM Johnnny said...

And now, my dear friend Rose Grosbeak is going to prove, once and for all, that you can actually dance with a bear.
