A Caption Contest to Bring Down the [Open] House

Tonight’s Comprehensive Plan Update/Open House at the Armory had another good turnout, and constructive comments and suggestions continue to flow from a variety of Northfielders, both old-timers and newcomers.

Here’s a three-minute audio clip of Ross’s brief address; I’ve also posted a few photos on Flickr.

Because this has all been so staggeringly serious, I feel the need to lighten up. I offer the following photo of Ross with City planner Dan Olson, which begs for a caption.

[…..? ? ? ? …]

Griff, Ross, and I will choose a winner over the weekend and award a prize befitting the cleverness, humor, and/or originality of the comment. Family members of the judges are not eligible unless the caption is really, really good.

  4. After all-night deliberations cleared the room of even the most dedicated citizens, the only remaining community officials reached a gleeful consensus on the tricky “how to count to zero” agenda item.

  5. As a side note, not an official caption, I must say that I had about four or five other captions varying from dirty to downright filthy, but I elected not to drag this blog into the slop in which I so frequently, so joyously wallow.

    We’ll see if anyone else takes the bait which dangles so invitingly in this picture.

    It’s a riddle:
    If I have a bee in my hand what do I have in my eye?

    Answer: Beauty…because beauty is in the eye of the bee holder!

    Very philosophical approach for the comp. plan!
