*******THIS CHALLENGE IS CLOSED, AND OUT TO LUNCH*******

Le Clown and I brainstormed for what seemed like a month over what the third challenge should be, but then the over-the-counter hallucinogenics we liberally inhaled — that coincidentally tasted a lot like a fist full of pulverized Pez — wore off. Instantly we tired of running circles around an egg salad sandwich and a spoon.
Since I am the infinitely more mature adult in this equation I devised this multiple guess challenge for all of you competitive Le Clowniacs as I was hopping up and down on one foot naked while cackling Mambo Number 5 in a chicken voice.
Now that you have featherless tin-eared fowl in the forefront of your thoughts, let’s take this challenge to the Lincoln Park Zoo. Pictured below are four animals. Imagine they are actually Le Clown with hooves or paws. Here’s your challenge, what is he up to in each image? What’s your hilarious, inspired, pithy, clever, and when your idea wells run dry, disturbing, guesses? Remember to number each caption so Le Clown knows which beast-Le Clown that you’re referring to, or if you prefer, leave off the numbers, let his head explode and voila! He takes the blogroll with him, we’re all Le Clown-less, and we all lose.
Here’s his fine print that I have to tell you or else he’s going to force feed pureed poutine down my gullet with a tube:
Each participant will receive 2 clown noses for each participation – you can submit up to 10 captions for each of the four images. Contestants will get their noses added to their total. Other bloggers can play and give their two clown noses to the contestants of their choice! One winner will be chosen. The player with the winning entry will get 4 additional clown noses. Call your friends! Call your relatives! Call everyone you know! Call Le Clown magnificent! Cash in your favors with the mafia! You need them now more than ever. Please post your captions below.
Eager beavers and beaver-ettes, don your thinking chapeaus and bonne chance!
Message from Roller Giraffe:
Whew! Ok you guys, well done. And as much as I hate to give him any credit, kudos to Le Clown for making it through all these comments all day for days on end (1069 views yesterday only!). He must have burned through about 17 case lots of energy drink by now. Buy shares, is all I am saying, there’s still two days to go.
Here are my favourites for the day (2 clown noses each). I couldn’t pick just one, y’all are so funny:
Ruby Tuesday’s bubble;
Carrie Rubin’s bubble (Carrie, let me know who would you like to give your points to);
Angel Fractured’s bubble:;
Rich Full Life’s bubble;
Long Life Cats and Dogs’ bubble.

Message from Le Clown: Drop by tomorrow for the last day of the contest, a special challenge from The Ringmistress, and a twist – one that will change your blogging lives forever… Not really, but I did watch too much Survivor in my lifetime…
I would like to applaud all of you for your sports(wo)manship, and your magnificent participation. This Blogroll Contest has been a great deal of work, but it has been so much fun… I have been reading (and sharing on Facebook) your mini-posts about this contest. And even bloggers who aren’t fighting for a spot on my blogroll have joined in: Brother Jon, kudos for my favourite picture of the past three days! And big thanks to Roller Giraffe for her speech bubble contest – what’s on a clown’s mind you asked?
