Woodcut Caption Contest #7 Winner!

Wow, our readers apparently get inspired by images that, according to them (but not to me, I don't know where you get such ideas), resembles a man having, as the Big Lebowski Dude says, coitus with a fish. There were numerous excellent captions, but our winner is Pasquil, who submitted a host of great ones, including "What may hap in Amsterdam abideth in Amsterdam," ""Nice cod-piece!" and "'Wow,' the cod thought, 'now this is awkward!'" His winning entry, however, was selected because, as Pedantius noted in comments, it successfully involves all of the characters in the image. Well, except for those two reapers way in the background... hey, what are those reapers doing there? Can't a guy get some privacy around here?

Congratulations to Pasquil!

    Who are we to say that the dog didn't specifically request a couple of far-off reapers? Dogs pray for crazy, complex things, Hieronimo.

    Congrats to Pasquil... the unanimous winner in our highly scientific voting.

    Are they reapers in the background? Or is the one on the right the angel, the one on the left our man Tobias (now with a staff), and next to them the little dog?

    (I am still really Pasquil having problems with my password [sigh]:)

    First, of course, I would like to thank God. Next, I would like to thank all the little people, my agent, all the other dirty-minded bloggers, the dog ... and, oh, my wife!

    So, umm, I would actually like to put this on my cv...

    The non-Pasquil Anon has a point... that does look like an angel, dog, and Tobias back there...

    Ah, it could be. One of those multi-event paintings. Going off to cure demon possession with fish gall. I thought that was bales of wheat on the right-hand figures back.

    If Pasquil puts this down as an award, can I list myself as an outside reviewer? Wouldn't be the biggest stretch that's ever appeared on my cv.

    Congrats Pasquil -- well deserved!

    I am oddly relieved that this contest is over.
