LDV Caption Competition: Boris & Dave “Happily ever after” Edition

There’s no prize at stake – just the opportunity to prove you’re wittier than any other LDV reader…

Here is re-elected London mayor Boris Johnson with his fellow Etonian, Tory leader David Cameron. After this week’s local election results, what do you think might be being said or thought by or about them?

And the winners of our last caption comp is…

Some fantastic entries for our most recent caption competition, David Cameron & Jeremy Hunt “Human shield” Edition.

The winner, according to The Voice’s judging panel of one, was this one by Paul Walter:

Cameron: “I knew you’d like my tickling stick”


With an honourable mention for Nick (not Clegg):

Hunt: “Can we blame this on Clegg?”
Cameron: No, but we can drag him down with us.”

    It’s like this Dave, ‘you put your right foot in, your right foot out’,

  • “Why did you think we supported Lynn on gay marriage?”

  • Nick (not Clegg) 6th May '12 - 8:58am

    Cameron: “I wonder why other cities don’t seem keen on directly elected mayors!”

    Dace: “Hold my hand, Boris, I think Nadine Dorries is behind me.”

  • Cameron: (Thinks) It’s OK, I’ve got a bottle of hand sanitizer in the car.

  • The body language between these two is all wrong, it would be interesting to see what the experts make of it, but this says to me: Dave – ‘hey, look what I found lurking in the shadows’
    Boris – ‘am I the only success he can find to look pleased about?’

  • David Allen 6th May '12 - 11:04pm

    SamCam: “How come my Dave is being outpolled by a guy whose jacket doesn’t fit and whose trousers are about to split at the crotch?”
