For last week’s Friday Fun contest, we asked you to send us a caption for this 1936 Coca-Cola festoon. The festoon has always scared those of us in the Archives, because we feel the ladies’ eyes follow us when we move.
That “fear” became the inspiration for a number of the captions we received:
- aloC-acoC and redrum; they go hand-in-hand!
- The "eyes" have it!
- Looking for a scary Coke sign? I'll keep an "eye" out for it.
- Lydia, don't look now, but you have two left hands! That's OK Rachel, you've got two right hands. All the better to freak out the Archives crew.
- Hey Mabel! Do you realize if we had arms, we could drink the glass of Coke we're holding in our hands?
- Treat yourself from top-to-hat with this refreshing hand potion.
- The observing Red
- Somebody's watching!
- Here's looking at you, Baby
- Delicious or refreshing: what’s your measure?
- Right or left, Coca-Cola always stands for the red white and blue!!
- God Bless America – Coca-Cola is always here for you and we are "watching" over you.
And the winner is: “Lydia, don't look now, but you have two left hands! That's OK Rachel, you've got two right hands. All the better to freak out the Archives crew.” by Rae Lynn. Congratulations!
You’ll receive a prize from Phil Mooney’s Coca-Cola “goodie closet.”
And thanks to everyone who sent in a caption. Please check back tomorrow for the next installment of Friday Fun.
