When I started writing this blog, I promised myself that I wouldn’t post anything just for the sake of having something to say. It’s a rule that I’ve broken a few times, but it has never worked out well, and I’ve learned that every time it seems like I’m never going to have an idea again, something magical comes along.

I’m between jobs and there’s nobody pitching me half-assed ideas, so I was starting feel like I had a case of bloggers block until an amazing bit of spam from Universal stepped in to save the day.

The task is simple. Use the comments to provide a caption to this image:
