We haven’t had one for a while, so give us your best shot. This here is Beyoncé and some fans. What say you, all you Punchy wits?
Anything else you’d care to put a ring on today?

Housekeeping first. The winner of yesterday’s caption competition (regarding the Melbourne water spout) was Jim with his obvious but deliciously rude caption “Meh…this government blows harder.” Jim, you win glory.
In other news, today is hump day so here are a couple of humpback whales to help you feel humpier.
Heck, feel free to write a funny caption for this one too. What else is busting your hump today?

We haven’t had one for ages, so why not unleash the beast on this burst water main in Melbourne yesterday.
What else do you feel like spouting about today?

It’s Wednesday. It’s Wednesday. Yay for Wednesday. Arguably the most hopeful day of the week. Two days closer to the weekend. And two days further away from Monday. What more could we ask for?
And here is one of the cutest animal pics of… well, possibly the year so far.
Now for the caption comp: what’s this little guy saying? Keep it clean people.

It’s Wednesday, and what does that mean? Well, nothing usually. But from now on it means: Caption competition!
So here’s a ripper for you today. Context: a giant toilet was set up outside Parliament House yesterday to draw attention to the link between decent sanitation and preventable poverty-related deaths. Please don’t dump too much crap in the comments.
What else is on your mind, Punchers?

Canadians are a placid bunch. Usually. Where ice hockey is concerned, primal passions arise. All kinds of primal passions, as the pic below shows.
What happened yesterday in Vancouver was shocking. The local NHL team, the Canucks, lost the final match of the Stanley Cup and riots soon engulfed the city. Vancouver’s top cop blamed “anarchists and criminals”, but it appears regular hockey fans were involved too, given there were over 100 arrests.
Vancouver has never won the Stanley Cup, the ice hockey equivalent of baseball’s World Series. So locals were entitled to feel frustrated after leading the seven match finals series 3-2, then blowing the last two games.
But were they entitled to riot? Of course not. If you ask us, these two had the right idea. While their city burned, they fiddled. With each other. Do you approve? And can you come up with a better caption for this wonderful photo than Ant’s effort? Pucker up, Punchers!
