If two things come to pass, viz, I'm sober and not actually in the pub* tomorrow night, Wednesday evening 13th December, I'll hand down my judgement and pass on the CST then...

*The conditions may not be** mutually exclusive.

** are not likely to be***

***there's no way they will be****

****Hic!

Phew, managed to stay out of the pub tonight, so a quick review of the entries revealed a number of stitch busters with a few skirting dodgy territory…

Special commendation to Wensleydale:

Brian had not got to grips with the Hungryhouse App, and regretted his decision to order a hot Mexican with all the trimmings.

Joint third place and the WHT trophy:

Buster Hyman

The class action against Harvey Weinstein took a dramatic twist...

Ascend Charlie

The jury for the Harvey Weinstein trial has been selected.

Second place and a year’s subscription to Woman’s Own:

ShyTorque

"When you said you were nipping out to get a women's magazine I thought you meant a paperback book about knitting..!"

And the coveted CST is awarded to:

Dan Gerous

"Uniforms", the new collection from House of Klinger

Cheers folks and over to you, Dan…

Um....I love this forum, even though I suck at writing captions...and am not a pilot (cough).

Also I noticed that some non-winners have occasionally posted captions when the winner is unable or unavailable...

And though captionally incompetent, I enjoy collecting oddball photos...

So, if no one else has a submission, would this be suitable for captioning?

I don't think it will get further than Cardingtons boundary before it deflates old chap.

"We were talking about it being filled with hydrogen, and that it's performance meant it was a bit of a bomb, when this Korean chappie with a funny haircut stole the blueprints and ran off, shouting "Death to Amelica" or something!"
