Caption Contest Week 5

Hello Marauders! Padfoot and Prongs here bringing you a BRAND SPANKING NEW weekly feature that we are sure will shock and amaze you. Ok maybe but not that, but it will be fun, we promise. Inspired by the fabulous tumblr Slaughterhouse90210 we gals over at GoodBooksInc have thought up a fun new literary game for us all to play together and we hope that every single one of you will get the urge to participate.

Here is what the end result will look like: Last Week's Winner
"Clever as the devil, and twice as pretty."
- Holly Black, White Cat

This fantastic caption was submitted by our good friend GABBY!!!!!
Great job Gabby. You picked a great week to enter since like we said before, the prize is EXTRA SPECIAL.
In honor of Banned Books Week (last week) as a prize we are offering up your choice of ANY BOOK OFF THE AMERICAN LIBRARY'S LIST OF 100 MOST CHALLENGED/BANNED BOOKS!!!!!
To claim your prize, just send up an e-mail with your mailing information and the title of your choice!!
FYI - TO PAST WINNERS: Sorry we have taken forever to send past prizes! They are all being mailed tomorrow and should be in your kitchens/your books by next week!
Congrats again to Gabby and thanks to all those that entered. It was a great way to finish up Banned Books Week.

Now back to the contest.
Lets break it down. Essentially this new feature will be a weekly 'literary' caption contest participated in by you all and "refereed" by us. Each week we will provide you all with a fun and interesting photo which is in dire need of some sort of caption.
Here is where you come in. It will be your job as loyal readers and literary lovers to scour your brains, books, and Google to find a quote or passage from any novel, play, short story, essay etc. that might compliment the picture.

The rules are simple: as long as it's literary, it counts.

You can leave a comment with as many options as you like, however, we'd suggest bringing your A-game since only the very best captions will be rewarded. Also, please be sure to include the name of the work and if possible the author.

What's the reward you ask? Well depending on the week (and our budget) it will range from a virtual high five to anyone of our fabulous GoodBooksInc. items!

Now that you understand the rules, below you will find the next picture that is in need of captioning. Like we said, anything will count... but the more clever and appropriate the quote, the better your odds are of winning!
We encourage you to check out the Tumblr mentioned above to get ideas on how to be creative with this, as well asGoodReads for a huge collection of quotes from every book imaginable. Good luck and happy searching!
