In the spirit of Nelson Mandela’s 95th birthday yesterday, Wonkie decided to reintroduce Friday Fun this week with this Help a Cat Up photo caption contest. Enter your funniest caption in the comments section below and you could be wearing an excellent new Wonkie t-shirt next month!
Actually, given the amount of support the world needs right now, this photo caption challenge is probably a very appropriate one. Consider the quick news round-up for this week:
- Home of Motown and the once booming US auto industry, Detroit, files for bankruptcy. Wonkie fondly recalls one of its first cartoons about Obama and the Detroit bailout in 2008. This is the largest of the five municipal bankruptcies in the USA this year. Tsk, tsk… someone needs to learn how to use their credit card properly.
- South African billionaire entrepreneur, Mark Shuttleworth, lost his bid to declare the entire South African exchange control system declared unconstitutional. This ruling has raised concerns within the Wonkie team, that its bid to declare the entire South African education system unconstitutional, may be unsuccessful. This concern is further supported by the fact that President Zuma still deems Angie Motshekga competent in her role following his last cabinet reshuffle.
- The international media, who seemed to have lost interest in Nelson Mandela after he disappointed them by not dying a couple of weeks back, reignited their flame to help celebrate his 95th birthday. Of course, they are still hopeful of an eventful few weeks of Madiba news, especially given that Mandela family corpses are being exhumed all over the place.
- The nuclear-powered Curiosity rover is happily roaming around Mars collecting all sorts of interesting data about the planet. Most recent findings have indicated that Mars, a few million years ago, may not have been far different from Earth. In fact, the possibility that there might well have been both water and an atmosphere there lends itself well to Wonkie’s theory that we are all actually convicted Martians that were sent to Earth as prisoners (making Earth somewhat like an inter-planetary equivalent of Australia).
- Egypt remains in turmoil after its elected president Mohammed Morsi was ousted by the Egyptian military. Since the ousting of the Muslim Brotherhood quite suits the USA and many in the Middle East, the move is conveniently not being labeled as a coup. Wonkie will be publishing a more detailed article on the Egyptian situation next week.
That’s it for the Wonkie news this week. The Help a Cat Up photo caption challenge ends on Sunday, 4th August 2013, after which the funniest entry will be published online… have fun and Wonkie looks forward to reading your caption entries.
