caption contest: "woolly couple" – win a $50 gift certificate

Okay, so first off, thanks to Peter Pools for allowing me to use his imagineered “woolly couple” piece for this contest. I’ve been waiting for the right creative to run a caption contest and damn if this isn’t it. I hope it inspires you.

So here’s how it will work – have a good look, have a think and enter your best caption for this photo in the comments below. Your caption could snag you a $50 gift certificate for my Etsy shop.

The best comment will be chosen by moi based on two factors: 1) did your prose make me scream for the love of cheese and rice!!; 2) the number of votes your caption receives from other readers.
