Doctor Roger Mexico was not his real name, it was just what his clients came to call him. His unethical and frankly mad cosmetic surgery experiments in the eighties had led to his license being revoked and the setting up of his chop shop in Tijuana.

Carol, short on funds, desperately called upon Doctor Mexico to increase the size of her "twins".

She understood true horror when she woke up to find out her twins were now 3Suns and Obtuse.


The challenge was to take the top 3 most emailed photos on yahoo and create a hopefully amusing story about the sequence. I reserve the right to refuse a disturbing picture, this includes any pictures of celine dion.

Please feel free to add alternative captions if you can or comments if you can't.

Meta day: you make fun of the things that make newbies scratch their heads in puzzlement.

There are 14 messages for this day.
<mypalmike> I couldn't do meta today for some reason.
<Axolotl> Yay! It's the snub nosed langurs!
<Lauren> Mort, I just love your caption today.
<guyPaulo> Those are some ugly monkies.
<Carol> They are like nightmare skull babies. And ha ha, Mort; but nobody carves on me unless they are, like, trying to save my life.
<guyPaulo> Hey, I got an idea for next Thursday. Each monkie gets to pick his own theme (Crass, sexist, meta, Pun, etc), and the other monkies get to try and guess what theme is being used. You could restrict it to previously used themes or just allow any wild theme idea to flow.
<ajiav> mort, what is the current formula for choosing pictures; you mentioned a few weeks back that you were fine-tuning this method or something?
<ajiav> Is there any particular way of choosing pictures that inspires better captioning?
<Mort> Currently I try and pick the top three photos that I haven't used before.

It's almost impossible to predict how inspiring a set of images will be, you would almost have to work out every possible caption in advance.

All I know is that interesting people and animals are good because you can give them voices. Also images with lots of details in.

<Jellyloo> I have found this to be true with my puppets as well.
<Mort> Your "puppets" are 3Suns and Obtuse?
<Jellyloo> Oh how they squirm when I try to employ them as real puppets. They must learn not to resist.
<Mort> Ok, I need to go take a cold shower now.
