The Balloon-Man Caption Contest

This is our world-famous 267th Caption Contest!

Here’s the pic:

About the pic: Sam Smith, 30, is an English singer and song-writer who first identified himself as “gay,” then in September 2019, announced himself a
“non-binary” and changed his gender pronouns to they/them, stating, “After a lifetime of being at war with my gender I’ve decided to embrace myself for who I am, inside and out,” whatever that means. On Feb. 12, 2023, Smith appeared at the 2023 Brit Awards in an inflatable latex balloon body suit.

You know the drill:

  • Enter the contest by submitting your caption as a comment on this thread (scroll down until you see the “LEAVE A REPLY” box).
  • Body and Soul‘s writers will vote for the winner.
  • Any captions proffered by our writers, no matter how brilliant (ha ha), will not be considered. :(

This contest will be closed at the end of Tuesday, March 7, 2023.

‘To get the contest going, here’s my caption:

Sadly, the more appropriate pronoun for Sam Smith is “it,” as attested to by his choice of the clownish balloon outfit.
