Fishpond Encampment Lumbar Caption Contest Winner Announced
By Tim Romano
I kinda figured that the responses from our last caption contest would have a bathroom humor slant. Honestly, I was hoping for it, as my humor hasn't quite caught up to my age. Which is either a very good or a very bad thing…
Regardless, there were a multitude of hilarious responses, many of which made me lough out loud and many I don't dare repost here. But in the end, I had to give the Fishpond Encampment Lumbar Pack to fptalbert, who seems to be an angler that does a fair share of hard-water fishing. fptalbert wrote, "…and yet the age old debate of which provides better support continues, boxers or briefs?" wins our prize this week. fptalbert, give us a holler at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get you taken care of.
