In the Picture Caption Contest

The Barber Association newsletter In the Picture now runs a caption contest with each issue. Though only one ‘winning’ caption will be shared in the newsletter, we thought it would be fun to share our favourites for your enjoyment!

The Winter 2018/19 issue shared our Ingres painting Paolo and Francesca

Here are the winning, and our favourite, captions:

Winner:

‘No, really, I love the smell of garlic.’

Runners Up:

‘Who? Oh, him at the door. It’s just the milkman, dear.’

‘When he thinks leaving the pub early will be a pleasant surprise but you were enjoying your book.’

‘Paolo: Oh no, I’ve done my back in!’

‘Paolo was an enthusiastic amateur chiropractor.’

Our Spring 2019 issue shows The Cobbler by Adriaen Van Ostade. We can’t wait to hear what you come up with!
