I selected this cover for our latest caption contest because it generated a lot of discussion in the SBTB Slack chat. Thank you to Lara Diane for finding this gem.
I also desperately wanted to include the discussion, so you’re even getting a mini Cover Snark in here!
Tara: I’m hoping that’s a campfire pun.
Sneezy: What brand of dumbass can convince someone to take off their shirt when it’s that cold? Never mind everything else he should be wearing.
Shana: Does he have wings made of flannel! And all of his hair appears painted on. What’s the spray-on hair for bald spots called? That’s what this looks like.
Catherine: Is that his original head? I’m trying to work out how you wind up with more tan on your body than on your face, and now I’m picturing him wandering around shirtless but with a balaclava.
Lara Diane: I’m with Catherine. It can’t be his original head. The mismatch is so intense.
AJ: That guy does not know how to match his foundation.
Comment below with your caption! Caption that cover however you wish! You can come up with a new title or tagline. Does he really have flannel wings? Is he some angelic saint come to bestow a blessing for the holidays?
The best captioner will receive a $10 bookstore credit to a book retailer of their choosing.
