Here's the poll. We had an impressive 18, oops...make that 17 entries this time. Had to shorten some entries due to poll option length restrictions.

You can vote for more than one option, but please try to keep it to your favorite three. Poll will close in 4 days.

Please note that options 9 and 10 go together, so when voting for them please select option 9 ""Is it the '80s again?" she sighed. "I so miss the '80s!"..."

Here's the cover once more for you perusal:

Some great wardrobe-related captions for this one...I'm not missing Long Arrow at all ;)

Lone Arrow just made my brain's wheels spin. It was much harder to come up with captions (clever or otherwise) for this cover, for some reason......

Yeah, that one's mine and I almost didn't post it because I thought it was too corny. But I was having such a struggle coming up with anything that I thought, why not?

I actually think the one about her leg being bent strangely is funnier, but that's just me. Because if you look at the picture, you'll see that one of her thighs is curved in a way that is biologically impossible. Maybe it's the art student/lover in me that focuses on things like that.... :rolleyes:

Having read the book I can tell you that she had been injured as a child and had a bad leg, which was shorter than the other one. Don't remember any mention of it being curved, but it's possible.

Now THAT is funny! And here I just thought the artist did a poor job. I was even thinking, "why didn't the publishers or anyone catch that and make the artist fix it?" Well now I know -- because it was supposed to be that way!

Now we know how she manages to bend her upper leg in such a strange way! :D

It gets better, if you'd care to know how the injury occurred...
