We then had to march around the parade ring in front of the judges, and line up for a closer inspection.

Now, it was an extremely hot summer (1976) so my Pilsbury products started to cook, and exploded out of their packages just as the judges reached me. Whether out of the judges' sympathy or out of their admiration for my attention to detail, this doughy fireworks display earned me 3rd prize overall.

Not a caption contest entry, obviously, but a true story.
I wish I'd been there! (Also I'm just pleased that somebody else remembers the Pilsbury Dough Boy!).

SYBIL : Basil, don't annoy the chef, he's the only one we've got.


BASIL : I'm not annoying him you stupid bint.


SYBIL : No need to be rude, Basil. Go and lay the tables.


BASIL : Oh thank you! Thank you so bloody much.

CHEF : I'm fed up with you food critics coming to my restaurant and carping about the food. What do you think of this? (STABS HIM)


CRITIC : Aargh! The knife needs a bit more seasoning actually -

".....and after this contretemps, which Mr Macdonald knew, Mr Macdonald agreed to unhook his caravan from the back of Mr Linford's car in the very tight caption contest race."
