Problem with posting "extra" photos is that we end up with two competitions running side by side and no-one knows which caption belongs with which photo. I get confused enough as it is with just the one......

...a bit like trying to decipher my wife's habit of holding two concurrent conversations!

With Fantome around it is easy to understand how Jimmy Durante felt.

Thanks SAS - Feel a great affinity with the old "Schnozzle". Sometimes an irrelevancy turns into something not so much of a tangent. (Wife is always saying - "TANGENT".)

OK Fantome's pic is the official entry - sorry people, I wuz wurkin' all day and am on the other side of the flat earth from you lot.

Have at it!

As an aside, my mother had a joyride with the subject of the pic, Charles Kingsford Smith, way back when. It cost 2 pounds, a week's pay, but she reckoned it was a hoot.

Assuming I read this right it is the Imperial Airways pic I will go with

Well getting the mail from Australia in 4 days is a lot better than 6 weeks by sail

In 1932, as Smithy handed over the bag of mail to Cpl Hitler, he had to look away because that moustache was just TOO funny....

While the pilot puts on an inane grin for the photographer, desperadoes slit open a mail bag and make off with the contents.

The pilot only had one thought in his mind after the marathon flight: the PR dept had told him to look absolutely normal and deny any feelings of tiredness, "prop lag" or confusion.

Yes I am the Pilot but wrist watches have not been invented yet

Trying to look innocent Smithy delivers the sandpaper for the Ashes test match later in the year... he expects to use a lot of it...

or

The man from British Rail is there to collect the mail and speed it to London, expect delivery in 5-7 working days

Qantas staff shout "Huzzah!!" as they watch the CEO heroically adjust his pay packet.
