Well not these two. No. The winner was me!
We know our readers are a funny bunch, and now’s your chance to prove it. Head to our Facebook page (http://facebook.com/theglobeandmail) to enter. Each morning we’ll post a photo from the Olympics and give you the chance to show off your wit.
“Barbie and Betsy reclaim the gold as they perform ‘Alas, poor Yorick…’ during the synchronized Shakespearian swimmers event.” Winning caption by John Bray on Aug. 7. (Greece’s Evangelia Platanioti and Despoina Solomou perform in the synchronised swimming duets final during the London 2012 Olympic Games at the Aquatics Centre August 7, 2012.)
Yeah, “John Bray” is my alter ego.
I didn’t win a prize or anything but I posted this to my Facebook timeline and won a few comments. The Globe and Mail, by the way, bills itself as Canada’s National Newspaper. So, like, I’m pretty famous now, eh?
