Get Stoned...

...and write a caption. This is the second in a series of Caption Contests. Who knows...it could be the last.

Here's the photo:

Do I really need to tell you who's in the photo? Fine. The guy on the left is, um...oh yeah, Ronnie Wood from The Rolling Stones. And the bitch on the right? C'est moi. If you've already won a contest at Everybody I Shot Is Dead, you are ineligible to enter. That means you David A. and David C. And if another David wins, I guessing my contests are fixed.

Please place your entries in the comments section of this post. If you don't want to sign up on blogger you can use "anonymous" but then you need to put your name or email address at the bottom of your comment, so I know where to find you if you win. Or, for folks like Ronson, who are too famous to be seen blogging (or too shy to post your identity) you can email your entry directly to: contest@cheshercat.com. Then, I will post your entry without revealing your identity.

As you may know, screenwriter (and now professional caption writer) David Anaxagoras won the first Caption Contest for the Robin Gibb photo. To see all the entries from the Robin Gibb pic, and how the contest works, go here. You can read David's acceptance speech here and what he wrote about the experience on his blog here.

The winner gets an original signed (by me) photo and a lot of personal gratification. I gave David a choice between any of my dead rock stars and a list off the top of my head of some other people I thought he might like, including Pink Floyd, Yes, Eagles, CSNY, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Genesis, Kiss, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Van Morrison, Ringo Starr and Led Zeppelin. He picked George Harrison. Good choice. I have really good shots of him. And I appreciate you getting me off my ass to actually scan pictures I need for the book.

I'm scanning George Harrison photos right now. Also have my iTunes running. On shuffle. I have over 3000 songs on my iTunes. All Things Must Pass just came on. Strange. That song has never come up on my shuffle before. Thanks for dropping by, George. We miss you.

No, seriously -- you have a bottle in your armpit.

That's great, that's great. Just shut up and give me that bottle!

I think the bottle has something to tell you.

Adam, again.

Chesher Cat said...

Hey Julie - thanks for being the first one in the pool.

Hey Adam - thanks for playing.

Best o' Luck to both of you.

I know I didn't put a limit on the contest again this time...but since my panel of independent judges are volunteers, I'm going to say:

Limit 3 entries per person.

Ronson said...

"I shit you not... if you move the bottle closer, I'll drink with BOTH fingers."

Ronson said...

Ron: "If we lie down outside, we can see the stars."

Deb: "If we wait until morning, we can see your face become a sundial."

Ronson said...

"...okay, now imagine us WITHOUT the veggie tray."

Brett said...

"Stop laughing -- I'm serious! I just saw egret fly up your nose!"

Dave Olden said...

(Cupping my ear like an Announcer Guy... here goes...)

"Unbeknownst to conniving photographer Deborah Chesher, the bottle she is about to levitate from under Ronnie Wood's arm is empty of the Genie it once held. Little do our heroes realize that the Genie, conferring with his agent, has taken position, ready to exact revenge."

Jesse said...

1. "Did you know that when you laugh, your chin does the greatest Jimmy Hoffa impersination!"


2. "I KNOW who you are! You're one of the little rascals, aren't you?"

"If you let me finish that bottle, I'm pretty sure we can get this annoying shirt the rest of the way off..."

"Yes, it's true Ronnie, I'm a fourth generation finger swirler. My great grandfather swirled for King Charles"

#3

"I always carry a Richard Branson puppet on my shoulder, Ron"

ronson said...

Heh. I was looking for the Richard Branson joke, myself... figured it would be too random.

Love the puppet line, Quill.

(Gotta be a way to work in RB and Virgin Airways and Deb... tried to make it work with Deb commenting on RB and Virgin Airways, and Ron saying something like, "You had me at 'virgin'..." but it just read too clumsy.)

L Reyna said...

Oh, you guys came up with some funny ones. LOL-ed a few times. Here's mine:

#1 "Say, Mick, are you done with that bottle? Mine's empty. Mick...Mick... MICK!"


#2 Deborah became increasingly frantic as she desperately tried to explain to Ron that drinking and grooming don't mix--something she was all too familiar with.

Here's my 3rd & last--

Great Moments in Rock and Roll History: Ron Wood and Deborah Chesher compete in the ultimate drinking contest to see who would become the next member of the Rolling Stones. Though the American, known to friends as "Doorknob" Debbie, gave it all she had, she couldn't compete with the Englishman's iron liver.


Really like your blog, Deb.Nice work!

Chesher Cat said...

rume - I'll have you know, no drinks were snorted that night. As for other subtances, well, I wouldn't know. And, I have never worn a press-on nail - ever. And, if Ronnie dies and I have to put him in this book, it will be all your fault.

brett - leave it to a Texan to work BBQ sauce into this contest.

quill - I'm sure Klaus Voormann will be happy to be mistaken for Richard Branson.

dave - only a Canadian could come up with that. One is all you got?

jesse - like the rascals one...too bad I'm not one of the impartial judges. Did you do 3?

ronson - you're just nucking futs.

laura - Doorknob Debbie? How the hell did you find out about my porn past?

Keep 'em coming, folks. The contest continues for two more weeks!

Scott the Reader said...

"As Deb tried to remember the "bottle-in-front-of-me, frontal-lobotomy" joke, she suddenly felt Ron accidentally drop a handful of M&Ms down the back of her underpants".

The Eyeball Kid said...

"You'd better put that down if you're thinking about climbing another palm tree."

Dave Olden said...

"DEB: Ron, Baby, you want more drinks? ... Heh... pull the finger!

RONNIE: I may have had a few, but not enough to fall for that!

DEB: (Chesher grin) It's how you get more drinks. Honest."

Dave Olden said...

and.... Finally...

"Deborah Chesher, at the grand opening of Disneyland's Rolling Stone Adventure, is just about to hit the on-switch for the hyper-realistic animatronic Partying Ronnie Wood."

Tenspeed & Brownshoe said...

CHESHER CAT:

So, this one's gonna be a bit dirty. I apologize in advance. Wait...no, I don't.


"Ron, I'm not gonna tell you again. Just ONE finger, got it?"

"Deb realizes she's figured out the perfect rock star. He'd have Gene Simmons' tongue, Eric Clapton's hands and Ron Wood's liquor cabinet."

Scott the Reader said...

Deb hopes Ron just said "I like your liquor cabinet", though it sure sounded like "I'd like to lick your crabby nest".

Laura Reyna said...

Deb--

Just a wild guess on your porn past ;)...

Funny, i don't feel bad about the doorknob thing, i feel bad about calling you an "American".

Sorry about that. You can change it if you want. :-)

"Show me yours ... I'm sort of showing you mine!"

darn... that can't be right...

["We're sorry, your caption box is full. Please delete any unused captions, and insert another quarter." ]

Where's customer service when you need 'em!

Chesher Cat said...

I see little Davey Olden is trying to better his chances of winning by confusing potential entrants.

Don't be dissuaded by his childish antics. The contest is still open...ENTER NOW...there's lots of room in the caption box.

Consider the customers served. I'll put a notice up here when the contest is closed. Thanks for playing and may the best captioner (or would that be captioneer) win.

Steve Harvey said...

Eventually Mick will figure out that I'm not really Keef and fire my lame ass.

Seriously, the other guy in the photo is far cooler. Did the Beatles Revolver cover and played bass on the As Is (a terrific album never released in the USA) by Manfred Mann . . . the one, the only . . . Klaur Voorman.

Chesher Cat said...

Steve: Did you also know it is Klaus playing flute on Manfred Mann's Mighty Quinn?

Dave Olden said...

Oops. Sorry. :) <-- very sheepish grin...

I had intended to jest that it was my 'caption box' that was full, and at 3, it is.

No intention -- whatsoever -- at all -- to dissorient the other competitors..

And to prove it, I have this beautiful pocket watch... see how it glints in the light as it swings...

.. as it swings... back and forth... back and forth...
