Default Caption Fun! (Sims 2 Talents)

So, I was playing in The Sims 2 with my Talent characters again, and some of the shots I got were just plain funny when you look at them and think of the books. Some are downright capationable!

So, I figured, let's give it a go...let's see what sort of funny captions we can come up for this one.

From left to right: Cera Gwyn-Raven in green, Peter Reidinger IV with a faceful of pasta, Afra Lyon, gesturing in Peter's direction and speaking, and Jeff Raven, looking a little concerned.

What's happening here? And what is Afra saying? Caption it. I'll come along and post a new one in a few days.

Afra: "When I said 'suck it' I actually didn't mean the pasta, Peter"

or

Afra: "Uh... When I said try eating pasta without hands I actually meant with telekinesis!"

Afra: "Peter; you can't trim your toe-nails that way --- the table's in the way."

Afra: "Peter, could I have a hand please? I think I may need the talents of Earth Prime to remove my leg from inside this table."

Jeff to Afra, telepathically: I honestly didn't think your powers of persuastion were strong enough to get him to teleport face-first into the table, Afra. You would think, "Because all the cool kids are doing it" wouldn't cut it with a personality as strong as his. Problem is, how do we get both of you unstuck now?

* * * *

Jeff to Afra, telepathically: I know your plan to talk Reidinger to death was meant in the very best way, but do you think it's wise? I can wait to become Earth Prime.

Did I kill the thread?

Here's a new (or, newish) one, as promised. And the next one after this will have Coonies involved!

As promised...Coonies!



Damia's legs on the left, one of the household Coonies on the right.

And, since it's been so long, here's an alternate to caption if you'd prefer:
