Caption the Photo Contest

Long-time carpenter and Popular Woodworking Magazine contributor Carl Bilderback sent me this image a few days back, and said I should come up with a clever caption about it being a baby picture of housewright Ron Herman. But I seem to be fresh out of clever – so I’m leaving it in your hands. Submit your caption of 50 or fewer words in the comments section by midnight on Sunday (Oct. 23). The writer of whichever caption I find to be the most amusing will win one copy each of Ron’s “Sharpen Your Handsaws” and “The Joinery Challenge” videos.

Yes, it’s awfully subjective – but this might help: Monty Python? Hilarious. Anything with Will Ferrell? Couldn’t tell you, because I refuse to watch it. “Strindberg & Helium?” Funniest. Cartoon. Ever. (And Ser Schwarz is pretty funny too…at least when he’s channeling Monty Python.)

    Is this the best you can do? Where are all those Disstons and such you are always bragging about to your wood buddies?

    Oh drat, I’ll never grow up to be a WIA rock star if I don’t quit breaking the handles when sharpening these saws.

    What? Oh, when you said “now for something completely different” I was thinking “Okay! You know, if that handle were angled more…”
    But you meant different as in sharpening a rip saw today. Sorry!

    Get a handle on it Grandpa Ron, I thought you said you were going to tote me to the see-saw to sharpen my skills, not teach me skills at sharpening a saw and fixing a tote.

    I’m learning to play the saw,
    But there seems to be a flaw,
    My fingers are getting raw.

    I’d like to play some Handel,
    but I think I broke my handle.

    So upon reflection,
    I’m taking another direction,

    Maybe I’ll learn to draw.
