Wednesday Caption Contest: Part 13.

This week's WILLisms.com Caption Contest photograph:


The actual caption:

Irishman Paul Robert carries 118 kg Julia Galvin from Ireland in the World Wife Carrying Championships in Sonkajarvi, Finland, July 5, 2003. The bizarre event, in which a man carries a woman over a 250 metre obstacle course, is rooted in a local legend about a wife-stealing gang. Revived as a contest 11 years ago, it now draws contestants from all around the world. NO THIRD PARTY SALES/Tommi Korpihalla

There must be a better caption out there for this photograph.

Entries will remain open until 11:59 PM, Central Standard Time, Tuesday, July 12. Submit your captions in the comments section, or email at WILLisms@gmail.com.

Seamus expected the leprechauns wouldn't give up their gold without a fight. What he didn't expect was such a big leprechaun.

After weeks of gorging on ho-hos and moon pies in a nearby Motel 8, Michael Jackson had to be removed by force when he attempted to scale the fence of McCully Caulkin's house in an attempt to "play with his blonde love baby."

Sidney knew it was a lot of effort to get a leprechaun all the way home. It would be worth the effort as Sidney also knew something that the leprechauns did not know. They really were magically delicious.
