Update: Congrats to our winner - Tammy L. from Keavy, Kentucky. Her caption was short and sweet - and made us laugh out loud: "For a good time ... call 1-812-937-4401." (That's the park's phone number.) Congrats to Tammy, who wins two one-day tickets. Thanks to all who entered!
It's time for another caption contest!
While leafing through Nathan's latest construction photos from Hyena Falls, this one made me laugh.
What in the world is a Sharpie doing in a construction zone? And more importantly - what the heck is he writing?
Judging by the looks on their faces, it's pretty important.
Here's my feeble crack at it: Tic ... tac ... wait! I can't remember - am I "x" or "o" this time around?
Now it's your turn - what's he getting ready to write with that Sharpie? Or, what are they discussing so earnestly?
Make us laugh out loud and you could win two one-day tickets to Holiday World & Splashin' Safari!
A few rules:
1. Must be 13 or older to enter.
2. Must not be an employee of Holiday World & Splashin' Safari (or that employee's immediate family member).
3. Yes, you may enter more than once. Because you're just that witty, right? But five times per person is the limit. Really. And only one caption per posted Comment, please.
4. If you've won tickets from one of our contests within the past six months, you're not elegible to win. If it's been more than six months - have at it!
5. Judges' decision is final. It always is.
6. Deadline is next Monday at noon. That's 2/25/13 at 12 noon CST. We'll notify the winner by email by that Wednesday.
How to enter? Post your hilarious caption to the above photo as a "Comment" here on this HoliBlog post (we moderate our Comments, so don't get all worked up when it doesn't show up right away, okay? As long as you don't go all naughty on us, we'll post your caption).

That's our Food & Beverage Director, Jason, in the blue shirt.
Food is his business. Serious business.
Today was yet another day of "tastings" for Jason and his F&B management team.
No matter what he specifically asks the vendors (the Men in Black, above) to bring for sampling, they manage to show up with a few surprises.
Such as ...
... this inter- esting concoc- tion.
They called it a "Pot Roast Sundae."
Some folks on our Face- book page got a little bit con- fused about this - thinking we had tipped off the edge of the earth at long last.
No, that's most certainly not meat and ice cream. What you see is meat, potatoes and au jus. In a cup.
So perhaps "sundae" is not the best choice of word.
What do you suggest? Pot Roast Parfait? Meat 'n' Potatoes in a Cup?
And, more importantly, does this look delish to you? We'd love to know what you think!

Wednesday morning, we had a surprise snowstorm.
By 8:30, I was tweeting about it:
A bit later, Nathan grabbed a camera and headed out to take these flakey photos.
"Go toward the light!" Heading up Raven's lift hill.
And around the swoop over Lake Rudolph:
Then back into the station:
You can tell how much snow we received by looking on the seats of these benches. (Wonder if that's where the term "benchmark" originated?)
And finally, a look past our Christmas shop to our ever-glowing water tower:
Alas, the snow had melted by mid-afternoon. But it sure was pretty while it lasted.

Tell me the truth, am I a crusty old thing for telling Jason, "I have absolutely no sympathy for you - take your troubles elsewhere!"?
Thing is, our Foods Director's gripe was about all the taste-testing he has to "endure" this time of the year.
It's a tough job ...
Which of our menu items do you miss the most during the off-season?
