Caption Competition

13:45 UK time, Monday, 8 November 2010

It's the Caption Competition.

Last week it was the Wayne Rooney Guy, who was due to go up in flames at the Edenbridge Bonfire Society's annual parade on Friday night. It always chooses a contentious figure from the news to burn in effigy each year. Previous Guys have included Gordon Brown, Russell Brand and Katie Price.

The competition closed at 1230 GMT Friday - due to exceptional circumstances, the announcement of the winners was held over until Monday. Full rules can be seen here [PDF] .

Thanks to all who entered. The prize of a small amount of kudos to the following:

4. SimonRooke
"Sorry lads, we've got to take him down - Sir Alex says he's got a bad ankle."

3. presto_west_end
"Rooney will be warming the bench tonight, John."

2. Catherine O
"No mate, Edenbridge is 10 miles away. This is a private party for Coleen."

1. Valerie Ganne
£200,000 a week for the guy.
