Show us your wits! It's the Tampa Bay Times' weekly caption contest

Caption contest #49: Send us a clever caption for this image.

We couldn't decide between animal photos and movie stills this week, so we found one that fit both categories.

Can you come up with a clever caption for this classic image? If so, send it to by Tuesday, September 20, at 8:30 a.m. It's 100% totally free, and you can send as many caption submissions as you like. Please include your name and where you live along with your captions.

We'll select the best caption (and first runner-up) and publish it next Wednesday. We'll also post the winner to our Instagram account - @tampabaytimes.

To get your creative juices flowing, here's a sample caption for this week's photo:

And the winner for Caption Contest #48 is . . .

Winning caption: Submitted by Ben Summers of Seminole, FL.

And coming in at #2 is . . .

First runner-up: Submitted by Janet Rogers of Tampa, FL.

Nicely done, Ben and Janet!

And, as always, thanks to our esteemed panel of caption contest judges (Amanda DeArmon, Carolyn Edds, Jeremy King, Suzanne Palmer and Tim Rozgonyi), who spend countless minutes every week choosing the best caption from amongst all the submissions.
