    Flood control in the front, party in the back.

    • Eric Celeste

      Overlooked. Solid.

  • TheSlowPath

    Honestly, I’m more interested in the folding chair. What’s its story?

    • Ben S.

      That’s at Big Spring in the Great Trinity Forest, he is standing in front of the historic Bur Oak there.

    • Tim Rogers

      Please don’t take this personally, but that is the worst caption ever written.

    • Zada Pemberton

      Bill Pemberton that has been caring for the property for years which was his grandfather Edward Care Pemberton still takes walks down my the spring and sit under the historic big bur oak tree. He is 77. We put the chairs down their.

  • Hal Barker

    I sure am glad I invented Pemberton’s Big Spring.

  • Tim Rogers

    This is the second-worst caption ever written. I mean, you’ve included helpful information. But it’s still a pretty lackluster caption.

  • Ted Barker

    Historic Bur Oak at Big Spring. Glad that he now has visited this historic site.

  • Ted Barker

    Tim, we will leave the captioning to professionals and trolls.

  • Tim Rogers

    Here’s my entry: “The mayor went for a stroll in the woods while wearing a hard hat. What happened next will surprise you.”

    Sort of an Upworthy vibe.

    Mayor Mike grins after imparting his marketing genius on Trinity River Project, “Flood control in 30 years or it’s free.”

  • Hal Barker

    Today Mayor Mike Rawlings displayed his “Hats and Horses” creation while touring the Dallas Horse Park. The hardhat/tree combination drew rave reviews from City staff and onlookers at Pemberton’s Big Spring.

    I have some funny captions but everyone tells me I should not unleash my wit.

    Mike Rawlings is saying “I’m so happy, I got away with out inviting the Pemberton Big Spring folk”.

  • Eric Celeste

    “What, the jacket? Arrow Big & Tall line. Sears.com, $89, 2-day delivery, BAM. The tie? That’s Hermes, b*tch.”

  • Ben S.

    UPON HEARING THE PRICE TAG FOR CLEANING UP THE ILLEGAL SLAUGHTER HOUSE DAMAGE AT THE FUTURE HORSE PARK, MIKE RAWLINGS DISPLAYS THE SAME FORCED SMILE ON HIS FACE WHEN THE “CHEF” REVEALED THAT THE MACARONI AND CHEESE W/BACON HE WAS RAVING ABOUT WAS NOT, IN FACT, MADE FROM SCRATCH IN THE KITCHEN ACCORDING TO A SECRET RECIPE HIS GRANDMA BROUGHT OVER FROM SICILY RIGHT BEFORE WWII BROKE OUT. WELL PLAYED, PIZZA HUT.

  • Borborygmus

    “I got your BIG, right here”
    “Wednesdays are Tie Day, right?”
    “Who brought pizza?”
    “Flood control over Love, any day”
    “Crap, there’s that pr*ck Wilonsky again.”

    If my hands are in my pockets, it means I’m the boss.

  • Hal Barker

    I can’t believe all the goat heads over in the Horse Park! Any way to mount them for my trophy wall?

  • eastside

    I am so happy to be here to see this historic site that meddlers have interfered with my plans for paving it over and developing. Grin.

  • Johnyalamo

    The mayor confirmed today that they do indeed fail make a sound but Councilman Dwaine Caraway immediately afterward described it as “fruitful” while, with no apparent sense of irony, he praised City Manager A.C. Gonzalez for the transparency of the process.

    Councilman Philip Kingston tried to avert the executive session by moving to have the discussion postponed indefinitely, but he was basically ignored by Mayor Mike Rawlings.

    “The bright side,” he quipped on Facebook, “is that I got a nice nap.”

    I’m wearing my hardhat because Frankie in Nova Scotia said that Dallas is going to get severe thunderstorms and over 30 millimeters of rain, that’s over 30 millimeters of rain! I’ve ordered my 5 cases of Pepsi and my pizza and my iPad is charged…

    “Mayor proudly displays necktie donated to the city by the French’s Mustard Corp.”
    “Mayor approves of dueling site between Southwest and Virgin Airlines.”
    “Mayor endorses ‘Hanging Tree’ to be used until lethal injection drugs meet federal approval.”

    But where are the Water Moccasins? Councilman Caraway needs them as props for his Council meetings.

    You came close to getting the high-five for the Wilonsky caption. So here’s a pat on the back.

  • Tim Rogers

    Very solid effort. Employees and freelancers are not eligible to win, however.
