Last week, Sarah (@shreinhart on Instagram) submitted the photo above of her son Oscar for a caption contest. We were all understandably horrified. Someone pointed out the open glue stick on the floor which just adds a whole other level of destruction. Kudos to Sarah for having a sense of humor and keeping it together.

Of course, I am assuming Oscar is still alive.

There were over 200 captions submitted (both on the blog and on facebook) and I’ve narrowed it down to my seven favorite, including the oh-so-appropriate Andy Warhol quote submitted by Amy H.

The clear favorite on facebook (judging by the number of likes) was submitted by Johanna R. I imagine this is what the NY Post headline would be, if they ever ran the picture…


Below are five more of my favorites, starting with a submission by Michelle…


Whitney B:


Laura C:




Alyssa T:


And finally, Brit. My pick for the winner…
