Pass The Roast Beast

Pass the roast beast.

Think you can do better?
I know you can.
Have a spot of fun and write a caption for this picture for everyone to enjoy.
I'm not going to hide the comments. I think seeing someone else's work is a great way to spark you own creative juices.
If I'm wrong, please blame MizFit. She gave me the idea to let others do the work for me.
If I'm right, thank MizFit.
The important thing is to have fun.
What does this photo remind you of?
What does it make you think of?
What does it make you want?
What do you see when you look at it?
What do you want others to see?
It's not a contest as such. It's a time to stretch out and see what you can do. If you don't want to write a caption feel free to answer any of the questions above instead. They are meant as prompts in case anyone needs a boost to get going.
Respond as often as you like.
Have fun with it.

oooh I love it Im honored Im overwhelmed all at once.

The picture reminds me of christmas in pennsylvania. the duality of the holiday when I was growing up as I loved the spirit of the season. the trees. the lights. the sense of joy in the air. and yet I hated how I didnt celebrate the holiday. that I was different. all I wanted was, one time, to see what it was all about. to have a tree, to wake up christmas morning--all that.

Looks like the Abominable Snowman's armpit to me.

(in the nicest, furriest, snowiest way possible, of course)

Now I want you to ALL think about how it might SMELL...

MizFit, you're welcome. What a poignant memory of the Christams that never was. Thanks for sharing it.

LOL, Tokaiangel. You are totally wicked. That's a good one. I'll never look at snow-covered trees the same way again.

Do you think Santa will be able to go out now that we've cut off his beard? Din't think that hair would ever end.

Leah J. Utas said...

LOL Tom, good ones. Thanks.

Great photo, dfLeah! And great captions so far. (The Bag Lady is holding her nose at TA's comment!!)

Leah J. Utas said...

Now that's a great visual, dfBag Lady.

Once we were in Yosemite as young kids and the snow came up over the top of our cab-over-camper which must have been about 14 feet high. We climbed up there somehow, got some clean snow and poured maple syrup on top to eat our whitetrash snow cones. (We didn't get out much so this was a huge treat and there were 5 of us kids).
The trees remind me of that trip to Yosemite and freezing and a warm hat that's necessary.
The actual picture reminds me of that Disney cartoon where Goofy is decorating his tree and the chipmunks are causing a lot of holiday stress.

POD, maple on snow is a treat in French Canada. Can't think of the proper French name. It's a big part of the Cabane A Sucre or sugaring off festival. The maple syrup is boiled and then poured on the snow and wound around a stick like a popsicle stick. The French Immersion parents hold a Cabane A Sucre here in February. Your whitetrash snow cone is a big deal here. And they are tasty.

POD said...

I guess we were ahead of the snow-snacking curve. That's good to know.

"Spike, we're gonna fake a quarter-back pass and I want you to run right down the middle...ready? BREAK!"

They look like they are all in a huddle! Great photo Leah.

MizFit said...

(peeking back in to read other people's thoughts...)

Leah J. Utas said...

You made me smile, Reb. Thanks.

Hey MizFit. Your great idea worked.

Crabby McSlacker said...

These are all great!

Beautiful picture. Makes me think of, um, pretty snow on trees.

I seem to have left my imagination somewhere. Perhaps a cup of coffee will call it back from wherever it's hiding.

Leah J. Utas said...

Crabby, you're a true literalist. I'm sure a good strong cup will coax your imagination back.

Nightmare caption:
"Oh, wait! We have to go back through those trees. I lost my car keys."

Leah J. Utas said...

LOL, Polly.
