With the Olympic Games 2012 almost upon us, sporting competitiveness is running high, so this is a good day for announcing the results of our recent caption competition...


This, you will recall, was the picture which I invited you to caption and a good number of you entered into the spirit of with a fair number of similarly-themed responses.

The entries were judged on this occasion by Mr David Weeks (without knowledge of who was responsible for the submissions) and here are the results starting with the highly creditable runners-up:

Andy Latham:

With his latest batch of CG additions, George was really taking the Mickey. 

Boll Weavil:

Disney deny forcing script changes after buying the Star Wars franchise.

"Sir, under the laws of this blog you must change to your battle underpants and prepare to dual"

"Use the mouse Luke-as!"

"Crap the Phantom Menace was, with no rodent interest, George"

Mickey: I am your father!
George: OK, that explains my cheese fixation at least.

"I've changed me mind. I AM going to make episodes 7-9 after all AND I've got an idea for some innovative new casting..."

Birgit Reichholf:

"Smile and wave boys, smile and wave!"


George is ambivalent about Mickeys' new show-whitening service but grudgingly admits that his trainers are really really white.  

Early Yoda prototypes did not impress George Lucas... 

George Lucas is unconvinced by early light sabre prototypes...

Rani Bean:



Yoda looks slightly different after a couple of beers. 

May the Mouse be with you!


George: I'm not sure this is going to work. Darth Mouse just doesn't do it. 


Disney took over the Star Wars franchise and retired Yoda in favour of their own star!

"Say Cheese, Mickey!"

Alfred von Cervera:

George: Give me Pixar back!


Roger & Sheila Shrigley:

George Lucas:  ... and the winner gets to meet Brian Sibley!
Mickey: What's the second prize?

Andrew Webb: 

George realised that outsourcing the CGI to save money on Episode VI hadn't been one of his wisest ideas…



Auditions for the part of Obi Wan Kenobi, after the death of Alec Guinness, did not go well...


"Harrison, will you please take this seriously and get out of that stupid costume"


Boll Weavil:  

"When I decided to launch an attack on Pluto, I wasn't expecting such reprisals."

Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all of you who entered. Another competition will roll round as soon as another weird photo shows up crying for a caption!
