Caption Competition

Rummaging through my photo album the other day, I discovered that rare beast - a snap of our glorious Tory council leader! Quite why there are so few piccies of him is a mystery to me. I mean, the chiselled features, rugged jaw, curly mop. He's quite the Hugh Grant!

Anyhow, this being the silly season, with news about as plentiful as hens' teeth, I thought I'd offer it up to you lot to suggest suitable captions. I've kicked it off but I'm sure you can do better. There's a bottle of bubbly on offer for the caption deemed the wittiest by our panel of judge (me) by close of play tomorrow. Go on - do your damnedest!

'I can't understand people who say there's nothing to do in Margate.'

Hello Eastcliff

Try "Hope those fire engines have paid for their parking, I'm off to get some change for my motorbike."

Or: "Rog, I've got a great idea to cover up the bad end of Margate - we'll use a smokescreen. Cushti!"

With the price of petrol as high as it is we will definitely be seeing less of this sort of thing in future

"Great to see Margate keeping up old traditions!"

OK, lousy caption, but arson in Margate clearly isn't something new:

Rog, do you know what would be really bleedin' funny? If after this I said to the chair of planning, "you're fired!".

I think the big grin says it all.

How about"that's another few quid in me pocket" or "f*ckem all".

Sing to the tune of drunken sailor

What do you dial if there's a fire,
What do you dial if there's a fire,
What do you dial if there's a fire,
Dial your insurance
What do you do to plan for fire,
What do you do to plan for fire,
What do you do to plan for fire,
Buy some bloody petrol
What do you do if you light a fire,
What do you do if you light a fire,
What do you do if you light a fire,
get an alibi
Who comes in a rolls if there's fire,
Comes in a rolls if there's fire,
Comes in a truck if there's fire,
It's that mr godden

Where are the Community Wardens? Someone left a lit fag end by the ol railway. That's a 60 quid fine innit and 80 if they don't pay within 10 days. That's lost tdc revenue mate.
