back to article El Reg picked a pack of ace pic-titlers

We spent so long chortling at your entries to our WD "Caption This" competitions, we forgot to tell you who the winners were. Besides a stonking great Western Digital 6TB Black drive plus a My Passport Ultra, our winners receive the glory of their names on the wit list below. The full complement of winners from the …

    Betty expresses delight at her new cordless monitor's ability to painlessly remove unwanted underarm hair.

      That did make me laugh,

      up from me. Srsly, only rampantly trollish captions could bring true hilarity to the pic.

      Source of the pic. would be interesting to hear, one may assume someone in the Reg. or an associate, clearly a pose.

        Re: That did make me laugh,

        @Bleu; Nope, that's what's known as a cheesy stock photo. (My near-certainty on that count was confirmed by the fact Google Images shows it already in widespread use elsewhere.)

      What's wrong with you? You sicko.

        I know El Reg is no prudish, so if a moderator removed a comment is for a good reason, but...

        Am I the only sicko who wants to know what the hell happened up there?

        1. Bleu

          Agreed.

          I would also like to know. Probably the funniest of all, but too un-PC for even the Reg. Ugly but hilarious joke, I would guess.

          Only time I've ever had a post deleted here, it concerned an IRL incident that has caused me pain for a lifetime, but I'm glad it was deleted, so it is not in my visible history, even though true.

          That deleted post in this thread may have been truly not funny.

          OTOH, if I were making odds, I'd wager that it was a little sick and extremely funny. Want to read it!

          I reckon it was probably something to do with the guy with the jar of pens on his head

        @MrSicko; Yes, but wouldn't calling themselves "The Aristocrats" risk confusion with similarly-titled acts?

        And did they ever get back the gerbil they sent up there to recover the melon?

        (No, I've no ******* idea what was in the deleted comment either...)
