Friday Caption Contest: Capote!

Do your best/worst with our precious little literatus here. Isn’t he just adorbz? He was so cute before the bloat and the gin blossoms got him, but then, weren’t we all?

He's a little twee for me. It's Tru.

Seriously, why don’t they just rename it “Tramps and Drag Queens Day” instead of Ladies’ Day? I need a Drag Queen Cocktail and some distracting gossip links.

Stormin’ Norman Mailer on Style

Jean Campbell and Norman Mailer

A really good style comes only when a man has become as good as he can be. Style is character. A good style cannot come from a bad, undisciplined character. Now a man may be evil, but I believe that people can be evil in their essential natures and still have good characters. Good in the sense of being well-tuned. They can have characters that are flexible, supple, adaptable, principled in relation to their own good or their own evil – even an evil man can have principles – he can be true to his own evil, which is not always so easy, either. I think good style is a matter of rendering out of oneself all the cupidities, all the cripplings, all the velleities. And then I think one has to develop one’s physical grace. Writers who are possessed of some physical grace may tend to write better than writers who are physically clumsy. It’s my impression this is so. I don’t know that I’d care to attempt to prove it.

Actually, Norman, I don’t know that you were ever capable of proving it, but it’s an interesting theory.

Amanda Seyfried’s Fists of Furry

Amanda Seyfried is no dog, but apparently Ryan Philippe is a furry?

Funny, I wouldn’t have called her a dog, but I guess her new boyfriend is a furry. Wash that picture out of your mind with a couple of tall Salty Dog cocktails and enjoy your gossip links.

“I have had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane…”

Congratulations and imaginary swag to renalfailure, who I believe is a first-time winner. To him we shall present nothing less than The Complete Poems of Dorothy Parker

The Complete Poems of Dorothy Parker

Moving on, we’ve got the … uh … colourful pairing of Bootsy Collins and Tommy Davison, to change the mood a little.

I hope we are doing this in the right sequince

It’s not the first time Archie’s puns have brought him blog glory and imaginary riches. To him, we award the imaginary glory of the hypothetical possession of this all-too-real bling phone, with a price tag of a mere £5million or so.

And finally, we present the winner of last week’s caption contest: the Shadow of a Superstar Edition:

Tom Cruise's shadow is actually quite short

Manolo the Shoeblogger Says:

Finally, Tom Cruise has achieved the Operating Thetan Level One Million!

Yeah, yeah, he signs my paycheques, but I defy you not to give it to The Boss this week! For his hypothetical prize, we’ll award him … hmmm, this is like figuring out what to give the boss for Christmas. Well, we know he likes shoes, but I’m not about to pick out a pair for the world’s top shoeblogger, in case the website gets hacked and someone puts up Crocs in their stead (in related news, if you enjoy cheap laughs, DO cruise through Ed Hardy at Zappos.com). Instead, we’ll offer this impeccable Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spider, and not JUST because we’re buttering him up.

Although mostly.

I'll have one myself, if the Car Fairy is listening

Carey Mulligan in:

Hollywoods elite and powerful arrive to the premiere of 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps' at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City, NY on September 20, 2010. Among the arrivals were one of the most successful investors in the world, Warren Buffett and esteemed actor Michael Douglas whom is currently battling stage 4 throat cancer attended to support his fellow co-stars. Pictured Here: Carey Mulligan  Fame Pictures, Inc

…her new movie, “Money Never Sleeps In Its Clothes The Night Before a Big Premiere.” Looks like the poor girl could use a drink, and so could we, since we have to look at that. I suggest a hearty and nutritious Pick Me Up Cocktail, to pry those heavy eyelids open.

The Marie Antoinette Hoodie. Decapitate! It's great!

I NEED this in time for Bastille Day! Let’s toast to this excellent Threadless design with a glass of fine Armagnac diluted with just a splash of the late queen’s favorite tipple, Evian water. I can’t drink Evian straight; as Janis Joplin said, No water in my whiskey, man. It hurts my throat.
