MY call – lookin’ sharp

31 December 2010

It’s not raining! So as a special New Year’s Eve treat on the (currently,) very sunny Gold Coast we have some straight lines of horizontal stripes – the lovely librarians in Local Studies have found this photo from 1937 of the Tweed Heads – Coolangatta Surf Life Saving Club, in the archives of Picture Gold Coast.

Can you come up with a funny caption for it?

They’ve suggested: And you don’t like your board shorts?

There’s room for everyone…. apparently.

Can you come up with a funny caption for it?

Here are the Local Studies suggestions for a caption to get you started:

“Do you think this bus may be a little overcrowded?”

or

“Will we fit through the McDonalds’ drive-through?”
