Creative Captioning: Quick Draw McGraw

By Liz Kelly
Creative Captions

Creative Captioning, once banished to the land of canceled blog features, is back. At least for today. Why? Because we've finally got a picture worthy of our wit. You have below a celebrity, a fragrance, an image and one seriously weird pose. Do your best (or your worst).

There has to be a certain amount of ego that goes along with naming a fragrance after one's self. Sure, at the most basic level, this is all marketing -- celebrity fragrances (for some unknown reason) are guaranteed sellers at Wal-Mart -- and chemical conglomerates make big bucks by branding their concoctions with soft focus images of Britney Spears and J.Lo. But, naming that fragrance "McGraw by Tim McGraw" screams "TIM MCGRAW TIM MCGRAW TIM MCGRAW!!!" You see my point, I think. Why clutter up one's stink with the stank of extraneous words like "perfume" or "cologne" or "stud" or "glam cowboy" or "brokeback" or any of the other myriad descriptors that could have been used to sell this scent?

In any case, we're thankful to Tim McGraw for clowning (at least we hope he's clowning) and allowing us to slowly step away from yesterday's Great Miley Cyrus Debate. The best caption(s) will be elevated to a position of prominence here in the blog. Now go forth and caption...
