Wellington’s "Naked Man" Takes Up Table Tennis

The Evening Post publishes the "Adventures of Naked Man" each week and invites its readers to submit captions, a selection from which are published the following week. With the kind permission of the artist, Robert Gott of Melbourne, we publish a 2001 effort featuring table tennis.

Some of the leading captions were:

"It was the strangest method of vasectomy that the other urologists had ever observed." (This was the winner).

"Bill was suddenly glad he didn’t play volleyball."

"It was at that moment Jacob was glad it wasn’t archery."

"Temporarily distracted by the Mexican Wave, Naked Man paid a severe penalty."

"Roger misunderstood the coach, who had told him that to score a point in table tennis one had to keep the ball on the table."

There were several submissions of "Ouch!"
