Caption tweaking: Bathe Her And Bring Her To Me get usage counts

Alright, apparently people can't get it through their heads that when a page's image and caption are tagged "do not change/remove without starting a new IP thread", it means don't change them without a new thread. One suspension's already been issued that's connected to this page and this issue (not by me, for the record), and I really don't want to see any more handed down.

Now then, I admit that this caption is...unsubtle, and am willing to come up with some other version that works for everyone. I want to stick with the general theme, but everything else we can work with.

But the rape joke in the caption is really unnecessary. The trope already has those undertones...joking about it is just not funny. I seriously didn't know that you can't just change it.

And don't you mean suspension? If it's not a punishment it shouldn't be permanent.

I thought it was funny, because I am a douche :(

[up][up] Well, now you know. I wouldn't be too bent about this, but this makes twice now that this caption's been fiddled with despite the tag. The old thread decided to keep the pic; the caption helps get the trope completely across.

[up] Me too.

serial tweaker, sorry
I'm strongly for changing the caption. That being said, I don't have any ideas for one, and I agree that the image needs one.
please don't capitalize my handle. I just don't like it.
I think the caption is too wordy, but I don't have any ideas for a replacement. Keep Until Better Caption Suggested.

[up] Not necessarily too wordy, but it doesn't flow well. I actually like MAI 742's first tweak, with a further tweak:

"Dammit. Not only will Baron Eselschwanzed be having his way with me later, but this shampoo's lilac-scented. I hate lilac. Well, at least the water's warm..."

[up] what does the baron's name mean?

I'm okay with the caption.

Also, in that last thread, Famous Last Words, Willbyr.
The Internet misuses, abuses, and overuses everything.

EDIT: Finally that language degree comes in handy. My tutor would be proud.

An awesome combination of Bilingual Bonus and Getting Crap Past the Radar, I like it.

So that's what this does
What about something that acknowledges that at least she can make the bathing take longer so she doesn't have to put up with him too soon?
Balance - the original sixth sense.
Dude, he's a rapist. He'll probably have the girls drag her into his chamber if she takes too long/

Bump...any other thoughts?
Sounds fine to me. The suggested caption is better than current.

Good enough; it's up and the tag is changed to reflect this thread. Locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
