I Do Apologize!

...for being so late with the Caption Contest poll! Life has been rather busy for me and I confess it completely slipped my mind.  So, without further ado, the winner of Caption Contest II is...

Miss Elizabeth Bennet of The Age of Elegance... again! 

Oh, Mr. Collins and his stupid sense of floral beauty. But then, horticulture was never his forte, was it?

Now for Caption Contest III.  Here is the picture you are all voting for.  Please vote in the poll on the right for your favorite caption! I can't fit the entire text of each caption in the poll, so I've provided the full text below for reference.

Captions in the running for this photo:

1: "O, the hairstyles I suffer..."
2: "Yes, she's a drama queen. I have learned to endure it. *sigh*"

We are Siamese if you please!
We are Siamese if you don't please!

#1: A pitiful affair, really. Such a shocking lack of satin!
#2: I saw very little lace, all of it so cheap! not like OURS.

#1: Shocking, just shocking how young people dress nowadays, all in black!
#2: We are all in black!
#1: Well WE have an excuse.

Mrs. Merdle: "She was drrrenched in scent....and I mean drrrenched."
Mrs. Gowan: "Come now, Mrs. Merdle--that's not Chrrrristian."

Mrs. Merdle: ♫"We must be oh-so mysteri-oh-so. Enthusiasm is tres passe!"♫
Mrs. Gowan:♫ "We must slink across the floor as if its a dreadful bore. To the rhythm of By-um-pum-pum..."♫

Who are we mourning for, again?
~Miss Elizabeth Bennet

I'm not saying that she is silly, but one of us is silly, and it's NOT me.
