PoPville Photo Archives Caption Contest

by Prince Of Petworth June 21, 2016 at 10:05 pm 32 Comments


Your captions in the comments and winners (free PoP t-shirts or tote bags) picked Friday. If you find a caption particularly funny be sure to let me know in the comments so I can select a reader pick too.

Ed. Note: This is from a firebox conversion in Kalorama and it always cracks me up when I see it – thought it’d make a good contest but we’ll see!

    “The rent was reasonable and included a parking space. In Our Town, that was worth obliging the landlady’s occasional request for assistance with with odd jobs. But I had other reasons for agreeing to today’s request. After a long day spent planning direct mail campaigns to separate scared old people from their money in the cause of progressivism, I felt naked anyway. I felt ugly. She said I looked young.”
