[contests] The Sky That Wraps caption contest

Author copies of The Sky That Wraps have arrived. This is of course my gorgeous new short fiction collection from the delightful Subterranean Press. You can order it here, should you be so inclined.

The Sky That Wraps by Jay Lake

But we all know what author copies mean — a giveaway via caption contest! So I hereby declare another one of those suckers, based on a photo from the recent New Zealand trip. Your challenge is to write a caption that answers the question “Why is this man laughing so hard?”

First prize will be a personalized, signed copy of the book, additional prizes to be awarded at my discretion. Usual rules apply. I’ll collect captions in comments here (at both jlake.com and jaylake.livejournal.com) until I get bored with it, then build a voting poll. Please try to limit the length of your entries or they may become truncated in the poll code.

    SCHOLES…. Ken… Please put pants on! Man, I did not need to see THAT this early in the morning.

  4. Jay Lake reads the Pledge for America. “Funniest piece of comedic fantasy this year,” says Jay.

  5. Alex J. Kane says:

    Relax, Jay, lest you go pissing yourself in public. If you’re going to do that, sir, the law prefers that you do so in the center of the city street with one hand on the arse of your horse, for the sake of balance. Pissing your pants mid-laughter is just damn embarrassing, man!

  6. John Gibbons says:

    Ha! When you asked “How were things Down Under?”, I thought you meant…

  7. Carmelo Rafala says:

    Oh shit.
    Really…in my pants…

  8. H says:

    “No really the view of the sheep is out of this world! Here, lemme lend you my eye.”

  9. Whereupon we witness, first hand, the after effects of Jay’s little-known New Zealand clown allergy.
