Caption That Cover: Turkey!

It’s soon to Turkey Day here in the United States of Carbs, and we’re happy to inspire your appetite, or perhaps drive it deep into the earth to hide until Groundhog’s Day, by allowing you to view and caption the following cover. What are they saying? What are they thinking? Dear GOD won’t someone think of the children? The blank eyed, oddly staring creepy children?

Best caption as chosen by me gets a $20 gift certificate to Amazon or Powell’s, your choice. Feel free to nudge my voting by telling me which in the comments is your fave.

And now… the cover. Feast (hur) your eyes on this!

[Thanks to Sharon and many others for the link.]

    By the expression on her face, her joy was not unconfined. LMAO

    Little Cindy once again tried to cope with her parents’ love of kitchen sex by staring blankly at her handicrafts.

    “call21”—- maybe its her therapist’s number.

    They’re making me eat raw pumpkin?

    Staring at the paper turkey should put me into a trance…I hope

    They always tell me no tickling at the table…hypocrites.

    “able63”- I am patently unable to come up with something clever before my 63rd cup of coffee, which is why these are all rather lame.

    “Don’t be scared, Mr. Paper-Plate Turkey. Sometimes when a daddy loves a mommy very much, he gives her a special kind of hug. And when he hugs her from behind like that, it’s a VERY special kind of hug.”

    I can’t caption that! When I clicked below the fold saw….it, I actually had a convulsive, full-body shudder of revulsion and horror! Oh, my stars!! It is beyond going from bad into good…it’s swung round back into bad, BAD.
    How can someone buy that?! Must be blurbs at work…

    (For the price of a pumpkin pie, the zombie child will eat their brains afterward!)

    I am so sorry, Miss Jacobs. No one deserves that cover.

    (Aaaah! Verification word: children58. The zombie children are multiplying!)

    No clever captions here. Is it just me or does that look like it could be the teenage babysitter from next door??

    Is that a drumstick in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

    This just reminds me of the best dirty joke I was ever told in grade school. A Thanksgiving-based narrative, the joke wasn’t good coz it was funny—not by any adult standard—but because it had cussing, which is the hallmark of fine humor when you’re eight.

    And now I won’t tell it. I’m enigmatic that way.
