CAPTION CONTEST RESULTS! Well, those of you who could get past my defiling the memory of the Beatles came up with some really funny captions! Here are the Honorable Mentions: Alan AJ Irby: "Although Wombat didn't make it past the dress rehearsal for the Ed Sullivan show, he was immortalized forever the following year, albeit anonymously, with Bob Dylan's 'Mr. Tambourine Man.'"; Sam Wilson: "Little known footnote to pop music history: Critics thought the Beatles had a lot of potential and might have made it really big, but after adding a fifth member and changing their name to 'The Wombats' they disappeared from the public eye."; Kelly Zink: "Providing the inspiration for the original lyric, 'I am the egg-man, they are the egg-men, I am the Wombat,' only to be replaced by a more menacing sea creature."; Jerry Andrews: "Wombat's tambourine taps on beats 1 and 3 lead to such a quick departure, history never recognized him as one of the 5th members of the Beatles."; and Lisa Lavelle: "...and the Tales of Baron Von Wombat get taller and taller."
And the caption that won, not only because it cracked me up the most but also because it allows me to sneak in some heavy-duty parental bragging, comes from my elder son Brandon Randall, who is just today finishing up his first professional concert tour, as a lighting tech for Paul McCartney! Congratulations on your first win, Brandon!

Thanks to all who entered! New fake picture coming on Monday!
