CAPTION COMPETITION #2 WINNER!

DRUM ROLL PLEASE! WE HAVE A WINNER FOR CAPTION COMPETITION #2

… AND WE LAUNCH CAPTION COMPETITION #4 ON YOUTUBE

So, this one wasn’t as popular as #1 and #3… Maybe it was something to do with not being nautical? But more likely, it was the fact that we were drinking from a plastic cup using plastic straws.

Yes, hands up. We were guilty of doing the unforgivable. And we are humbled that many people pulled us up.

Here’s just a few of the NO-STRAW captions we read out in the video…

“Just an idea, take your own reusable cup next time…save the planet.”
Andy French

“Guys, ditch the straws please! They are so bad for the environment!”
britgal11

“You lovers of the sea, where are your reusable cups? And straws are a big no-no people! Love your channel but let’s set the right example!”
Eric Bangma

“Next time we’ll remember to bring our reusable cups and refuse a straw, eh luv!?”

And a clever take on the straw policy… “save these straws they will be valuable someday”

Our part of SE Asia is still in the Dark Ages when it comes to single-use plastic straws, cups and bags. For the moment we ask for no straws with our drinks, but in this instance we failed. So thanks to everyone who pulled us up on being more environmentally friendly.

Our part of SE Asia is still in the Dark Ages when it comes to single-use plastic straws, cups and bags. Until they start using bamboo, papaya, even paper, we refuse straws in our drinks. After all, you don’t really need them at all, do you?

We have been told of a new project to make collapsible steel straws which you can carry in your pocket. Has anyone heard of this? If so, please put a link below, they sound perfect for cruisers.

So this week’s winning entry, in tune with the environmental theme, comes from Bazza Captain, who wrote the most succinct and poignant reminder to us all about saving the oceans:

“The straw that broke the turtle’s sack.”
Bazza Captain

If you’re wondering what a turtle’s sack is, Bazza Captain explained to us recently that it is “the little bladder which, when it malfunctions, stops the poor buggers getting down to feed.” A hand-written postcard will be winging its way to him in the post from we three on FTB.

Competition #4 is online NOW, so please check it out and give us your funniest, strangest or most outrageous comments, we can’t wait!

Peace and fair winds!
