Wednesday Caption Contest: Part 37.

This week's WILLisms.com Caption Contest photograph:


The actual caption:

An activist from environmental group WWF, dressed up as a fish, blows a shell during a protest in front of the European Council building in Brussels December 20, 2005, at the start of an EU agriculture and fisheries ministers meeting where 2006 fishing quotas were being discussed. WWF was demonstrating about the lack of measures taken by the EU against increasing fishing pressure on deep-sea fish populations due to over-exploitation of coastal stocks. REUTERS/Thierry Roge

Surely there's a better caption for this photograph.

As a Aquarius, Rob hated his costume. Blowing a shell wasn't going to score him the Gemini twin's phone number. Meanwhile, that jerk Hood, in his Scorpio outfit, kept showing them his "stinger."

After that horrible rendition of Salmon Chanted Evening I can only conclude that you can tune a piano, but you can't tuna fish.

William found inner peace, oneness with the fishes of the ocean, and tranquility with whatever had been fermenting inside a conch shell.

Although he never gained the fame of more accomplished nautical heroes such as Aquaman, Captain Conch nevertheless did his part to rid the Seven Seas of evildoers.

When Bob tried out to be PETA's new mascot, Finly the Fishy Friend, he forget that his conch shell was evidence of sea creature murder.

He didn't get a call back.

After Phil's first true love ran away and married a dolphin, he found love once again with Blinky the Goldfish. However he made a fatal mistake with his rebound lover, and binge-fed it to death. Unable to physically to flush his late lover down the toilet, he decided the next best thing was to have it made into a hat, so they could always be together. The conch? Well, as with OCD types and pistacios, "you can't stop with just one". It was only the beginning of a serial fish-lover's long, sordid tail.
