Look, I won a caption contest. And another time, I won a lollipop for tracing a picture of a rabbit. Everything’s comin up Janey!
Thanks The Sting of the Scorpion for recognising my obvious genius.

Caption Winner: janeybgood @ “Cupid Or Cats“
Of course there is a bit of a back story to why the caption “Apocalypse Cow” was chosen unanimously (3-0 vote) by my children. They explained to me that out of 161 possible captions that were provided by many readers of The Sting Of The Scorpion that “Apocalypse Cow” was the hands down winner. Why? There were a few reasons, as it was pointed out to me, number one reason was because Apocalypse Now is my all time favorite movie and the fact that I can watch the entire movie on mute and can quote the entire movie. So, my children believed that because of the scenery in the picture that it reminded them of the movie so the choice was easy. They then modified the lower quote because over the years, when I’m grilling or smoking I said that very thing, “I love the smell of steak in the morning, it smells like ……………….. victory”. What can I say, my kids know me and what I like. So we celebrated last night after dinner by doing none other than watching Apocalypse Now with full on blasting volume. It was a beautiful moment, my wife by my side and two of my three children on the other couch, no phones, no tablets, no computers, just a hand in the popcorn as we all enjoyed daddy’s favorite movie.
