[polls] The Sky That Wraps caption contest voting poll

The Sky That Wraps by Jay Lake

Time for another caption contest voting poll, to celebrate the release of my new collction from Subterranean Press, The Sky That Wraps. I declared a caption contest on the following photo:

The usual comment madness ensued: [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ]

I have now embedded the comments into a voting poll. Unfortunately, some of the longer witticisms are truncated by the poll code. Usual rules apply. Prize after the voting poll will be an inscribed copy of The Sky That Wraps. Additional prizes may be awarded at the judge’s discretion.
