Nerd alert!

Wow. With a few notable witty exceptions, most of the offerings on the current caption competition over at Harry's Place are eerily reminiscent of a similar comp held by Vice magazine a few months ago, where the winning entry was great, but all the losing entries were also published just to highlight how incredibly shit/slightly creepy they were. Some people just shouldn't be allowed near the bottom of a photograph.

Still, it's kind of nice to know that the good folks at HP haven't engaged in the BBC website's ruthless editing of entries for their many caption competitions, thereby making the Beeb's target audience seem unnaturally clever and, well, overbearing.

Twas one of the better ones, I'll admit.
