Friday Caption Contest Results: Tragic Recycling Edition

Monday, July 14th, 2008

You will recall our poor, lost friend from Friday. It’s now time to announce the winner of another very competitive caption contest, and a more heartrending tale you will rarely read. Ripped, apparently, straight from the pages of that sobfest of the vested, Portfolio Magazine, comes the following comment on the devastating consequences of an economic downturn:

Tragic Recycling

Sunflowery Says:

Oh crap… the Velveteen Rabbit warned me when he was getting canned that there will be some major downsizing because of the subprime crisis … but did I listen? Nope.
Oh well… let’s at least hope I get to come back as a Bratz doll… they’re the most popular girls in the playroom..

Congratulations and imaginary swag to Sunflowery for the win! We’ve found her something swanky and as suitable for Wall Street as for Balmoral, the Brooks Brothers Check Border Equestrian Scarf (currently less than half price, at $91). As they say, if you want to get ahead, get a horse.

Monday Teeny Poll

Last week I asked about Christina Aguilera and her planned ad for Rock the Vote, which had most of you not really giving a hoot what Ms. Dirrrrty Girl does in her free time.  After that majority came almost twenty percent being a bit offended that she would wrap her infant in the American flag.   Big fans of Christina we are not, over here on Teeny Manolo.

As for this week’s question, it’s a good one.  We were out at a restaurant, and one of the next tables had a teen and what I am guessing was a 7 year old or so.  Both kids had electronic devices (one texting on a cell phone and the other playing some type of handheld videogame) on at pretty much all times except when they were eating.
