Caption competition!


We haven’t had a caption competition for a bit, so here goes.  On Sunday, @AnRev sent me this great photo of a goat eating 59 Seconds…..


My first thought was ‘Why did you give the goat the book?’, then I thought, ‘Let’s have a caption competition’. So, fire away. A free, signed, copy of Rip It Up (which has just come out in paperback), to the best one (as judged by me)!

    “Why are you eating my Book?” I ask.
    “Why are you, man, not eating this book?” The goat replies.
    “Because I am no goat.”
    “So why are you no goat?”
    “Because,” it is in ne to answer “if I was a goat eating a book, and you, goat that you are, were eating the same book, than this book was a mirror.”
    “But is not every book a mirror, for does it not reveal Things about yourself that you Do not know?” The goat asks.
    “And if this book, as every book, is a mirror, are you not a goat devouring a book than?
    What does this tell you about yourself?”
