The dog/wolf in that picture is great; there is some hilariously funny caption about it buried in my brain that just won't come to the surface. :) I'm sure others will come up with some great ones, though.

Have to admit I was stumped at first. Then I read the entries already in the comments and figured there wasn't much point in my trying...but I did anyway.

You know, it almost looks like the souls of dead piranhas are floating up away from that river. I think it's supposed to be a water sprite rising up to embrace him. Not sure why the fish are there.

I'm just wondering what he's looking at! I like the way the wolf has it's eyes tactfully averted.....

It's a public service annoucement. The wolf is looking at the camera and about to ask if you've had a prostate exam recently.

After a hot session at the gym, my trusty mate Wolfie and I like to cool off in Lake Chernobyl.
