Friday Caption Contest on a Sunday – Wendi Deng Edition

Tom Winnifrith
Sunday 16 June 2013

News that 147 year old media mogul Rupert Murdoch is to divorce his stunning 44 year old wife of 14 years Wendi Deng has got the media speculating. I would naturally cover it in the style of a Murdoch paper: facts wrong, extreme sensationalism and with no pretence of balance.

And so naturally one wonders what, fifteen years ago, attracted the phew what a scorcher Ms Deng to the filthy old man then aged only 133? But what folks are wondering now is why the split? Already Tony Blair’s office has had to state that the old war criminal is not having an affair with Wendi. Heck, if you were married to the Wicked Witch what could possibly make you want to stray?

And so this week there is again no prize on offer other than glory and a chance to be rude about figures who ask for it but post your captions for the picture below in the comments section by midnight on Friday.

For what it is worth my entry is:

“That rare entity… a working couple who have not been screwed by Tony Blair”

Last week I asked you for captions to this picture

The best entry from a thin field was from MDS:

“What our MP’s think of the working British public”

If you can do better with Rupert & Wendi this week post away in the comments section.
