Polandian caption competition #1 (closed)

***COMPETITION CLOSED***

I’ve added what I judged to be the best captions suggested by readers for each picture. The judge’s decision is final and cannot, under any circumstances, by influenced by envelopes full of cash left in the first cubicle in the Men’s room at Krakow station.

Here are some photographs I found floating around on Polish news sites this week. I have no idea what or who most of them are about, so I’ve made up my own captions. Our talented and remarkably attractive readers can undoubtedly do better.

Nuclear power plants – you’re doing it wrong

or

The EU presents photographic evidence in the case of Jacek P, a Polish farmer accused of fraudulent use of funds. “Mr. P, received the funds to invest in better machinery for his farm. Instead he built a power station and started selling electricity to Ukraine.” (Scatts)

  1. 3rd – that was so icy, Island… and they say Poles are cold!

  2. Basia z Szwecji says:

    Hilarious!!! Thank you so much, Island! :-)

    I like your caption for no. 3. best, so here comes another one for the same picture: “So the Białowieża-farmers are against the decision? How do we now get to the city hall?”

    One for no. 5 too: “I tried to practise saying ‘W Szczebrzeszynie chrząszcz brzmi w trzcinie´.”

  3. Chris says:

    Very Funny!!
    Heres my attempt:-{

    2. Poles will go to some lenghts to secure a new tyre for a Fiat maluch.

    5. Did you just call me ginger?

  4. Gabriela says:

    I loved the one with the endangered species!

  5. Jerzy Stachowiak says:

    Taking #4 into consideration, I’m not interested in politics much, but I hope that the men at right will become an official presidential candidate of its party and not the one at left. He’s probably the only one in the mainstream of Polish politics that can speak English really well:

    Maybe he would be the first president who we wouldn’t be ashamed of. No electricians (Walesa), no “painkiller overuse” in Kharkov (Kwasniewski), no stutter (Kaczynski). Since the president has no political power in Poland (except the power of veto), he should make a good impression at least.

  6. Scatts says:

    1/ The EU presents photographic evidence in the case of Jacek P, a Polish farmer accused of fraudulent use of funds. “Mr. P, received the funds to invest in better machinery for his farm. Instead he built a power station and started selling electricity to Ukraine.”

    2/ [Man in the front looking down the manhole] “It’s okay Mr Kaczynski, you can come out now.”

    3/ [The Prince] “This one’s got a very cute arse, don’t you think?”

    4/ [guy on left] “Did you see that post on Polandian the other day?” [Sikorski] “Yeah, hilarious! You know, I keep bumping into one of their writers in restaurants. Strange guy.”

    5/ [is a clip from a Polish TV advert] “Feeling down? Take MAGICPILL!!!”

  7. Jerzy Stachowiak says:

    1/ How much horsepower will we need in the future?

    2/ One peaceful day in Poland

    3/ Bison, the driving force of Poland’s economy

    4/ The policy of love: Tusk ordered them to love so they love each other.

    5/ Night of the Living Dead: Live in Poland

  8. Jeannie says:

    1. Once we hook you up to the nuke, you’ll go like lightening, you’ll see

    2. “Right. After you lot have secured the perimeter with the tyre, I’ll do a pole dance.” (extra credit for pun!)

    3. “Goodness, if he eats this much snow, just think! We could clear out all the drifts in Krakow in no time if we get enough herds!!”

    4. “Did you hear that Prince Charles is bringing 50 herds of buffalo to Krakow?”

    5. “If only I could find my Chapstick. I bet YOU took it, DIDN’T YOU. YOU DID IT. YOU!!”

  9. Bartek says:

    1. Horse-power plant.

    2. Tyre-shunting crew in plain clothes.

    3. The sly fellow ate its EU-ring.

    4. Radek, will you translate my website into English? My assistant did it and now those guys at Polandian are laughing at it.

    5. A person who sold stocks in Feb ’09

    #2 – “You told me that this look was an exclusive designer look, how could you let me come to this party and find that someone else has the same dress?”

    #3 – “Look, he does impressions as well, this is his impersonation of an Ostrich”.

    #4 – Silent but deadly.

  12. Stix says:

    5. Jackson death hoax shock after singer found wandering Wonderland Estate suffering from amnesia. Reports that he had fallen into a vat of skin whitening products are still to be confirmed.
