I have now closed the steampunk caption contest voting poll, which has celebrated the release of my steampunk minim opus, The Baby Killers. The contest was for a caption to best fit the following photo:
Pipe, Lime, OR. © 2002, 2010, Joseph E. Lake, Jr.
First prize is an inscribed copy of The Baby Killers, going to madrobins for:
“I admit to its utility,” said Miss Penderghast. “But the steam-powered corset-laundry will not catch on until it can be rendered small enough for the ordinary household.” with 15% of the polling, or 12 Votes.
Runners up are:
shelly_rae: Fortunately the colonoscopy scope has improved in the modern era and no longer requires a team of horses. It just feels that way. (11%, 9 Votes)
cjmarsicano: The Lime Observatory apologizes for the embarrassment caused by an intern pointing our telescope at the nudist beach in the next county. (10%, 8 Votes)
madrobins and cjmarsicano, please contact me with your postal addresses. (I already have shelly_rae’s.) Everyone else, go check out the other contestants if you haven’t done so already. Some funny stuff there!
