photoblog image and the winner is..................

and the winner is..................

After careful consideration the judges (Mr Pig, my cats and a moth that got trapped in the bathroom) decided there could only be one winner of the Chris Phillips lookalike competition.

 

They disqualified a number of benches as being too unoriginal.  A crumpet was short listed as were a defrocked Druid, a bath sausage and Ridge Gutteridge. Mick Shaw was disqualified for coming from the North as was Frank Croston who was also deemed to be too tall and attractive to American women (well one anyway)

 

The judges felt this encapsulated the truth that Chris is not as "green as he is cabbage looking"

I think the cabbage jumped up and down of pride???
Cabbage in Dutch is 'kool'..... so I think all the cabbages were singing this song for the winning KOOL... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GwjfUFyY6M
Bill Phillips: I turned the song off quick or I will be singing it all day and I can't stand it gringringringringrin

Bill, you are a funny man
Bill Phillips: Ange would say weird......
Great post Bill! I laughed out loud!! A few points...

#1 - That is truly a very beautiful cabbage!

#2 - Thank you for disqualifying Frank, as yes, he is far too attractive!

#3 - I don't think Chris looks anything like a cabbage!

#4 - Ray should be careful what he wishes for.

#5 - Thanks to Astrid for making me get out of my chair to dance!
Bill Phillips: Well it has got you off to a good start then E.

I'll have you know that some of my best friends are moths & cabbages!
Bill Phillips: I thought you were just a ratman

Ha ha and frack the north I say Bill. Lovely picture and that border is...well, isn't it.
Bill Phillips: Steady on my mother came from the north

Clearly the moth has been bribed, I demand a re-match ;o)
Bill Phillips: He would have agreed to anything just to be allowed out of the bathroom.

What in English is a kind of homage and love declaration, were an offense in German: Our former Bundeskanzler Kohl suffered from those allusions: Alles Kohl =nothing, dummer Kohlkopf =stupid cabbagage, verkohlen s.b. = mocking s.b. - but I know how much you love friend Chris!
Bill Phillips: I would not have posted this if I thought for one minute Chris would be offended. I remember Chancellor Kohl....he was a very big chap!
This is excellent Sir, I wonder what the Chad lookalike looks like.
Bill Phillips: Now that is a thought........

That's a gorgeous cabbage. I think this backfires the award.
Bill Phillips: It was a prizewinning cabbage.....just like Chris

At least it looks like a very healthy cabbage in its prime, Bill!
Bill Phillips: as is Mr Phillips

Fun bright shot
Bill Phillips: I must stop being mean to Chris.........eventually
As averse to "I may be green but I am not cabbage" as in someone trying to con you
Bill Phillips: Indeed Janet
Eh,eh, this is excellent Bil!
Bill Phillips: It is a fine cabbage Richard
Please send a pack,no! A crate of whatever it is you are on, Bill,thanks for the attractive bit...smile
Bill Phillips: I am guided by E who is clearly a lady of impeccable taste Frankwink

Everybody who tends there garden love their cabbage patches, so Chris must be pleased that everyone loves his lookalike so much.
Reading your words I have some figuring out to do smile I think I have got it now lol smile
Bill Phillips: I tend to ramble on at times Lindagrin
"Mon petit chou" is a French term of endearment, Bill. Equating Chris with this prize winning cabbage is a charming way to show how much you care for him. A lovely compliment, indeed.
Bill Phillips: I shall delight in calling Chris that next time I see him

I believe that you jumped the gun. Cabbidge rimes with Guttridge.
Bill Phillips: Well that's stretching it a bit.
Brilliant Bill - first good laugh of the day! grin
Bill Phillips: I do my best grin
When you remarked the other day about today's post I hadn't expected to see something quite so original and entertaining as this.
Bill Phillips: Well i am pleased to have surprised you Brian!
Reminds me of Oscar Wilde's famous response to a thrown rotten cabbage ' Every time I smell it, I shall be reminded of you' smile
Bill Phillips: He had some good one liners old Oscar
Are you joking?
Bill Phillips: Very much so. Chris is a good friend

A charming cabbage I am sure Bill, but ....I am taking umbrage that some northerners are being excluded from your judging team.
Bill Phillips: I am of Northern ancestry, my mother was born and bred in Nelson. I get annoyed with Northerners and Southerners who seem to deny the existence of the Midlands, To Southerners we are the North and to Northerners the South. We are neither.....actually I am from the South West but the Midlands is homesmile
So fun, I'm happy to see your wonderful sense of humour again
Bill Phillips: Thanks Paul. I haven't grown up at all!!
