Cheesy Covers Caption Contest round 15?

Post by Misfit » Thu March 24th, 2011, 12:31 am

OK, so I can't figure out the exact number where it got left off and I'm sleep deprived so I'm picking a number that's close. This one is one of EC's Russian Covers thanks to new member Sintra. She says it's The Marsh King's Daughter AKA as The King's treasure.

That's definitely the cheesiest one!
Now we know that living in The Middle Ages is no reason for a bad hair day.

Though the cover is actually for "The Conquest". :)

Her hair looks so 1950's glam. Hopefully we'll get some "caption makers" here soon. I'm not much for creativity.

She looks like she's doing that old isometric exercise: "We must... we must... we must increase the bust." Perhaps she's insulted that she didn't get a low-cut neckline like most cover models.

Now... to work that into an actual caption...

"Just count to a thousand," she thought to herself. "It' should be over by then."
