CHAT-Weekly Comp-Phrase or Saying-17-23 Sept
« on: September 16, 2012, 07:40:44 PM »
This week's challenge is to represent pictorially a well known phrase or saying. I know we've all done it a few times before, but I have an urge for some levity. So have some fun.

Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59pm Monday 24th September 2012.
Poll will be up Tuesday 25th September 2012.
Winner to be announced Saturday 29th September 2012.

The Rules for the weekly competition are...

By entering you agree to take responsibility to
Post a topic on the Sunday following your declared win
Create an entries thread
Create a chat thread
Create a poll for that weeks comp and declare the winner on the Saturday
(if for any reason there is a problem and no subject is posted by the winner by Monday night admin will advise second place winner to post the topic asap, do the poll etc)

In case of a tie, the first entry posted wins.

Photos to be taken during the specified dates, ie Monday xx to Sunday xx

Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59 Monday night

Last time I did this, I had hubby lying on the bed and I slapped a poached egg on his face, then burst the yolk so it ran down his face!!!! No way will he do this again. (egg on your face...)

I suppose you'll just have to think of something new that doesn't involve spousal abuse.

Personally I'm hoping jinky can come up with another one of his appalling puns.

Would have been ideal for me, as I may not have too much time. Sadly (or, more probably, otherwise) my lens cap jumps off, the minute I turn on my camera.

Appalling puns how dare you! I`ll have you know I entered 10 of my  puns into a national competition in the hope at least one would do well! unfortunately  no pun in ten did.

Appalling puns how dare you! I`ll have you know I entered 10 of my great puns 9into a national competition in the hope at least one would do well! unfortunately  no pun in ten did.

Now, does this mean they're too appalling to appeal, or not appalling/appealing enough?
