Caption Contests the Denver Post Way
The Denver Post is having fun with running a news photo and asking readers to submit entries for a "Caption Contest". Here's a recent one:

- "Camilla, maybe we could hire this chap to make cover-up outfits for Harry and Kate!"
- "The royals share a good laugh when Chalres [sic] tries to smoke the 'pipe' rather than beat the drum."
- "Fifty shades of Charles."
Because it's a news photo, the Post also supplies the "real caption" so everyone knows what it is:
That reads, "this is the caption and it will go on for as many words as it takes to make five lines, like this. this is the caption and it will go on for as many words as it takes."
