Maybe the Pixie Sprite Can Fix Your Car! .. Zero Post Offer Extended!

Consider this Dee's Black Soul Weekend +1 Spectacular! Come inside for more information!

Well, I made this caption for Dawn a few days ago and I think it is pretty self explanatory. The original thought though came from a friend on Facebook who was lamenting how bad 2016 has turned out to be and some of the people who died this year, and one of his biggies was Gene Wilder.

That thought was in my head still while I was searching the interwebz for good captioning photos, and I came across this one .. and one of Willy Wonka's quotes was "So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it." so I was thinking ,"Young girl with an old car. Strike that, reverse it!" .. and there we go, literally an instant caption. I whipped it up right away. And the pixie sprite would just have to be Jinny Jezebel, right? That would totally be something she'd do!

OK, now for 'Dee's Black Soul Weekend +1 'Zero Post Spectacular.' Open to everyone, including those who did it last week. Same rules apply, which I will repost below. However, this time around you get TWO redux captions instead of one! I think we are down to 18 zero post captions because I found a few more that weren't marked as such. Let's get this moving!
So, what's the biggie? Well, I can understand why a few have been ignored .. they suck or were just filler giving information that wasn't interesting to most people after a day or two. But dammit, some of the captions should have triggered something in a reader. Soooooo, here comes an offer I hope that no one can refuse. Comment on one of the zero comment posts, which you can find by clicking HERE or by clicking on "Zero Post" in the "Deetails and Entrails" section in the left hand column. Anything more cogent than "ME LIKEY BIG TIME!" should be the tipping point of effort on your part. (PLEASE NOTE that it won't show up right away, as any comment on a post more than 7 days old needs me to approve it. I will do so as soon as I see it posted.) Come back here and comment here on which caption you commented on AND ... 
I will put you into ANY caption I've made here since the beginning of 2013. You can pick something earlier, but I cannot guarantee that I still have the Photoshop file to modify it to your specs. One comment per zero post per person .. until December 1. Then anything left is 1st come, first serve. 
What should your comment look like so I have all the information I need? Well, here's a sample! 
I made a comment on "Happy Birthday Jillisa .. Class of '16' Candles!" posted July 21, 2016. I would like to be the star of "I Got the Idea From Youtube, Right? and my names are Wendall/Wanda. Could you make my sister's name Stella in there too? 
Easier than buying a pie in a bakery! I will be posting the "remixes" in this post so that readers won't be confused as to new captions versus captions starring new people. Let's wipe out this scourge of empty comments here on the blog .. 
So make ONE comment, get TWO redux captions starring yourself. What'st he deadline. Well a weekend usually ends sometimg late Sunday evening .. but this is a +1 spectucular SO .. You've got until midnight PST on MONDAY / 3 AM TUESDAY morning. That is two full days from when this is posted. 48 hours!


  1. Very nice. Great story and beautiful photo. It begs for continuation. Best wishes for the coming Holidays.

  2. Where do I find one of these oft mentioned pixie sprites? Do I need a certain scent?
