Animal Olympics Photo Caption Contest

Animal Olympics Photo Caption Challenge

Following the article on the proposed Special Olympics last week and to celebrate the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics today, Wonkie thought it fitting to challenge its readers to come up with their best caption for the above photo. For context, it was taken at the 2012 Animal Olympics, which is being held in Afghanistan for the first time this year. The event had animal trainers all over the world in bits to do their countries proud.

In the spirit of the Olympics, Wonkie finalists may be subject to extensive drug testing. The use of any “medication” that has been previously tested on animals will result in immediate disqualification.

Public service announcement: Wonkie does not condone the training of animals from birth in China just to secure more medals. Following the recent episode in which a 2 week old giraffe managed to knot its neck during gymnastics training in Szechuan, much media coverage has been given to the plight of animal athletes in China. As a result, the International Animal Olympics Committee has undertaken to conduct a full audit of animal training practices in the country. If you, or anybody you know, knows of any harmful animal training practices being conducted, you are encouraged to report it immediately to your local SPCA.

As always, readers are welcome to submit more than one caption. In fact for this week’s challenge, if you’re feeling funnier than usual, feel free to submit your photo caption along with a witty paragraph or two as part of your entry. Mention of the Olympics in your caption title or paragraph will definitely count in your favour. If you are going to submit more than one entry, please bullet them in a single comment.

The best response to this week’s challenge will win a brand new Wonkie CartOOns t-shirt… Wonkie looks forward to reading your entries!

In other news, the South African police were falsely rumoured to be launching a fully fledged, high priority enquiry into the Batman killings in Colorado. This raised further eyebrows to the credibility of the new SA Police Commissioner, Mangwashi Phiyega, who is really trying hard to make a success of her new role. Bheki Cele is proving to be a hard act to follow – who would have thought.

South African municipalities also put in a bid to have Audit Failing deemed a sport in the Special Olympics. Trevor Manuel is taking this under serious consideration given that only 5% of municipalities received a clean audit by the Auditor-General for the 2010/2011 financial year.

The Animal Olympics photo caption challenge ends on Sunday, 5th August 2012, after which the best entry will be published online… have fun and enjoy the week ahead!

    The South African Affirmative Action & Economic Empowerment Olympics
    1st Tenderpreneur
    2nd Kleptocracy
    3rd Elite capture

    Wikipedia definitions:
    Tenderpreneur describe government officials or politicians who uses their powers and influence to secure government tenders and contracts.
    Kleptocracy, is a form of political and government corruption where the government, (a political elite manipulating the three arms of government [legislature, executive and judiciary]), exists (with the intention of capturing resources that will enrich that elite) to increase the personal wealth and political power of its officials and the ruling class at the expense of the wider population, often without pretense of honest service.

    Elite capture refers to the ability of individuals of superior status – be it economic, political, educational, ethnic, or otherwise – to take advantage of government programs aimed at distributing resources or funds to the general public by using their elite influence to direct such assistance in such a way that it primarily benefits the elite group.
