Caption Me!

Tricycle contributing editor Frank Olinsky snapped this picture of a zafu around the corner from his Brooklyn digs recently, and it seems to scream for a caption or story, doesn't it? Let us know if you come up with one!

I wish to thank Philweb for giving me the honor of announcing the winner of the "Caption Me!" contest who will receive the $10,000 scholarship and the token honor of being put on the mile-long list of Tricycle's contributing editors.

First, on behalf of Tricycle, let me express appreciation to all of those who have participated in this innovative online event. Why, Clark Strand estimates there have been somewhere between six and six thousand entries.

And the winner is ...[drumroll]... TOM ARMSTRONG!!! [The crowd screams in delight.]

Thank you. Oh, thank you. You like me! You really like me! Ah, gee. Thanks.

Yes, the jury cites the many levels of meaning to "It's not easy being green" on the certificate of my award. AND, its appreciation for my part in getting James Shaheen a free lunch at Googleplex. Thank you. Thank you. Shucks. Wow.

Now, now, Karl. Being cruel's OK, but don't neglect being funny.

"Psst... Hey, Tom... where'd Steve go?? He was sitting right here next to me, thenI opened my eyes and he was gone... nothing but his Zafu and us other trashcans..."

When we are ready to pay attention to, and let go of, our mental "trash", the zafu is there.

How about this instead:

"HULK HATE ZAZEN!!! HULK PUT ZAFU IN TRASH!!!"

Oh, whoops--didn't notice someone had beaten me to the punch on the Oscar the Grouch reference. : )

djhappydan's picture

The denizens of Sesame Street hoped to bring some mindful awareness to the life of Oscar the Grouch by giving him the gift of a color-coordinated zafu.

All is impermanent; even zafus!

(cute idea by the way)

It's not easy being green.

Sometimes, even Oscar the Grouch needs a little peace and quiet.

Perhaps I'll come back as a futon!
