And the winner is…


There were several suggestions that made us chuckle this month but there can only be one winner - and Phil Deer's highly topical entry scooped the prize with:

"Tom Daley was not all that impressed with the performance of his groupies."

He gets to choose between a bottle of Italian red (Villa Antinori Toscana 2003; a bottle of organic white (Nelson Sauvignon New Zealand 2006); or a mixed box of non-alcoholic drinks to the same value.

Look out for next month's caption contest... coming soon!
