iReport caption challenge

We always love when iReporters issue their own challenges to the community. And this week, we had a great one.


On Monday, Atlanta photographer Dan Smigrod shared his photo of a couple relaxing on a beach in St. Simons Island – as a waterspout headed towards them.


It was a perfect “caption this” opportunity, and Smigrod jumped in the comments to invite iReporters to offer their suggestions.


As captions trickled in, he stayed on the site, engaging with the commenters in a fun way with an impromptu and might we say, spout-tacular caption writing conversation.


He even offered his own: "Who is dumber? The couple watching this dangerous force of nature or the photographer over our shoulder taking our picture?"


Here are a few of our favorites:


“Uh, honey I’m not sure this is really the best way to get back to Oz.” -- realityczech


“We got one of the nicest spots on the beach and we ain’t leaving for NOTHING!” -- Aeromechanic


“Let’s sit back and enjoy the show.” -- 1winky


Which one won the contest? Place your vote in the comments, or offer your own caption suggestion.

Do we run, or stay and await nature's treat, or threat?

Worry not, Margaret; not even a natural disaster will touch an umbrella this ugly.

Honey, is that a waterspout or a whale spouting water?
