Friday Caption Contest: Gluten For Punishment
Oh, last week’s caption contest! So many entries, and all so good that it was impossible to pick just a single winner! So everyone who entered is invited to a party being laid on by transport minister Philip Hammond at a local brewery. In order to prevent congestion at the bar, Hammond has a brilliant idea of inviting more guests. What could possibly go wrong?
Anyway - this week’s caption contest in inspired by my commute today. You probably know that I bake quite a bit of bread (and bagels!). What you don’t know is that a neighbour with four kids is also a bit of a home baker (you just wouldn’t believe how much feeding four hyped-up kids take), so we decided to start buying our flour in bulk - one of my clients, Keith Glenton is a local baker, and we did a deal.
Today was my collection day. But how to get a 16Kg sack of flour the 14 miles home from Ashington to Whitley Bay? That’s a rhetorical question - you already know the answer.
So here’s today’s caption contest for you - here’s Keith presenting me with my sack of flour, just as I’m explaining that I’ll take it home on the bike. What was his response to this?
Best entry this week wins a prize that I know many of you have fantasised over for months - some of my bagels delivered to your door*. That’s right - Toast By Post is back on!
So don’t be shy - enter below, with your guess at Keith’s response when I told him I’d be cycling home.
* Small print: provided you have a mainland UK address.
