A right regal turn-out of caption entries resulted from the photo (left) of Her Maj turning up at Eton at tea-time.
HM having declined to judge the entries, we turned (not for the first time) to Ms Polkadots & Moonbeams who undertook the task of assessing the (uncredited) submissions with all due seriousness and an appropriate (i.e. essential) quantity of vino.
First, however, I would like to share with you the Editor's Picks, four honourable mentions for personally tweaking my aging funny-bone...
"My husband and I were just saying, 'here today, scone tomorrow'"
Andy J Latham:
"THAT's how it's pronounced?!"
"Ew, look, one has two!"
And Michael G:
"Damn, I've just been given a wedgie!"
Now, to the RUNNERS UP...
"If I'd known there'd be free grub, I could've saved 20p on me cornflakes!"
"Ma'am, I'm sorry if you thought a pair of lovely buns was a cue for another Sibley Caption Competition with men in underpants !"
[This was Highly Commended by the Judge for "Sibley-blog-awareness"!]
"Straight from Swelter's School Dinners Recipe Book Ma'am."
"Sorry about the racket Ma'am. Another Brian May on the roof!"
"That jam's not from Fortnums!"
"One has just finished one's lunch, it can't be time for tea, yet!"
"'We invite you to see us crowned at Scone,' is how the play ends... Not with scones!"
"Who served them before the Sovereign? Off with their heads!"
"One isn't Rupert Murdoch, you know!"
A Snow White Sanctum:
"Egads, man! Something's still alive in there!"
"What? Philip made those?"
And so to the–– WINNERS!
"No, No, No, jam first then the cream! Chavs get everywhere nowadays!"
"Scones, on plastic plates?!"
"Yes, Ma'am, I'm afraid the cooking has all gone downhill since Steerpike left the kitchen."
Many congratulations to the winners and thanks to everyone who entered!
