Christian Bale

Well, it’s been an interesting week of nervously checking the comments to make sure none of them were *too* near the mark, but we’ve made it, and no one’s lodged any formal complaints. By all accounts it was a rip-roaring success. Huzzah.

I think Christian Bale’s pretty face may have had something to do with the great reponse, but regardless there were some very witty suggestions, and so we’ve picked not only three winners (we’ve been feeling extra beneficent recently) – but 5, each of whom will receive a dram of the astonishingly good Lagavulin Feis Ile 2011

To remind you, we wanted captions for this (slightly doctored) still from the film American Pyscho:

The five winners are:

JoshK, with his marvellous:

“There is a moment of sheer panic when I realize that Paul’s whisky had more peat … and is obviously more expensive than mine.”

Jellydonut, with the very funny:

“Do you like Lagavulin? I’ve been a big Islay fan ever since the release of their Distiller’s Edition, cask strength. Before that, I really didn’t understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual.”

Tristan off of that Fluid Movement with his excellent suggestion:

“In the evening I like to refresh with a dram of Lagavulin. I can now drink over one thousand.”

Mark with his witty (and slightly terrifying):

“When I looked at her a part of me wanted to open her, the other part of me wanted to see what she looked like smashed against the wall…”

We were going to award a dram to Thomas Aske for “don’t just look at it – drink it”, but being the pedants we are, we have no choice but to award Jason Baglietto for his more correct suggestion. Thomas – hopefully Tristan will share his dram with you! Jason’s caption was:

“Don’t just stare at it, drink it!”

Well done all, we hope you enjoy your prizes!
