The Cast of Colorful Winners

Another great week of captions, which is exactly what I expected. You make my job easy, until I have to choose the winners. Once again, it was difficult, but I did it...We start with the honorable mentions, beginning with:  Philip, who gets props for this creative paragraph! Ambero and Goldie Maize, first-time tourists from the semi-parallel Yellow Universe, were immensely disappointed with the panoply of pigmentation on display here in the Panchromatic Universe.   "Ow, my eyes!" exclaimed Goldie.   "I don't even have word for these colors, honey!" Ambero declared, admitting his linguistic shortcoming. Up next is Sam:    What happens at the highlighter convention...stays at the highlighter convention. I had to read Tom's twice before I got it.   On the way home from the jaundice support group meeting, Lenny asked for Phil's help when crossing the busy street. Heather had a musical caption:  While awaiting the results of their discrimination suit against the Blue Man Group, John and Shirley had little success launching a solo career. Now, these next two popped up at almost the exact same moment!!! First, Anne:  The original script of "Twins" was not exactly what Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito had in mind. then Dawn! Great minds think alike!  On the set of "Twin's Two", Danny Devito and Arnold Schwarzenegger were dressed identically, only their mother could tell them apart. And this week's winner of the Pumpkiny and 2 CD's selected JUST FOR HER is NANCY!!!                                                   I hope no one else decides to go as hepatitis this year... Awesome job everyone!  No caption contest next week because we are moving our blogs to a new server...This gives me 2 weeks to find THE. PERFECT. PHOTO.

A Pumpkiney Prize

What do you call a Beanie baby dressed like a pumpkin? A Pumpkiney, of course. NO? Just me? Well, that's one of this week's prizes in the Caption Contest. The winner this week will receive a CD of their choice from our prize closet, as well as the Pumpkiney which is all decked out with a button that reads: People who think they know it all really annoy those of us who do. A button that I feel is very appropriate for the caption winner.                                                                                            Your deadline is Friday at 4 PM. GOOD LUCK!

Winners with Bragging Rights

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE you guys and your creativity? Once again, a tough choice for the winners, but it had to be done.           Up first.. the Honorable Mentions, starting with Philip:  Here at the law firm of Furtwangler and sons, not only have we got your back, we've got each others. Up next is Todd with this play on words:  When you said the guys were going to "do some laps" I had something else in mind. Heather is next because... well, we've all been there.  The original Awkward Family Photo. I loved Tammy's caption:  Guess which ones are dummies and which one is the ventriloquist! John attempted to set a record for most voices at the same time. First runner-up, who wins a CD of her choice is SUE:   When a cake baked by the Widow Brown is on the line, NOBODY wants to lose the cake walk competition! AND OUR WINNER of a seat in a Studio M performance of her choice is KELLY! Walter was always a rebel, but fired soon after his ruining of the perfect professional human caterpillar photo by his blatant disregard for authority and wearing of a black suit (instead of grey, as requested). No caption contest next week because I am on vacation, so have good one!!

Drum Roll Please... We have a WINNER

This was a challenging photo to caption this week, and I am most pleased at the results. Let's begin with the honorable mentions, starting with Steve, who had a lot of good ones, but I liked this one best:     The lesser known Four Horsemen of the Day After the Apocalypse.    Then we had Kip, who sounds like he knows what he's talking about:  Evidence that passing out and having "one of those friends" isn't new. I loved Dave's    It's Robin Williams first day of comedy and his mom pins his puppet to his shirt. We can always count on Kraig to be original:  J. Edgar Hoover's top agents celebrate after cleaning out yet another Central American puppet regime. Anne killed me with this one:  Pictured here are the actors who got final callbacks for the 1922 black-and-white, silent version of Dumb and dumber. AND NOW... Our first runner-up, Paul!  According to reliable sources, preparations for Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young’s farewell tour are progressing nicely.   BUT the WINNER of a seat in a studio M performance AND stuff from the prize closet is GINA! The original cast of "The Hangover" Have a great weekend and I'll see you at the Badger tailgate  party on Saturday!

A bunch of great captions

Thank you so much. I laugh all week long reading the clever captions. I know you are waiting with great anticipation for the winner announcement, so here we go! Honorable mentions first, starting with Paul:            “Barb…listen, hon…now, you know I love you.  And I know you’re really, like, into the environmental thing.  And I think that’s cool.  But…MAYBE…just maybe…you’re getting just a wee bit carried away with the whole ‘going green’ concept.” John goes political: The FBI designed this disguise to assist agents in their surveillance of weddings and continental breakfasts across the country. I'm still trying to make sense of Tim's, but I liked it anyway:  Hannibal Lechter's Fruit &; Canapay  table was quite the hit at Goofy Grape's 50th B-Day Bash. "Amazing, I want some tongue!" Rootin' Tootin' Raspberry was overheard drooling... "Zinfidel!" the Butler seethed... Todd is very clever:  The newest edition to the fruit of the loom underwear line was put to an abrupt halt when Prickly Penelope was unveiled. As is Philip:  Dammit! If I have to obey a stupid motorcycle helmet law, I'm gonna do it on my own terms! So there!" The first runner-up, who will get to come to ONE studio M is Carl:  You hang around the front of Camp Randall long enough and slowly you begin looking like the sculpture.                                   And the WINNER of seats in 2 Studio M's and the Bandallama's CD is TAMMY!!! Mary got her metaphors mixed up and tried to show she was fruitier than a nut cake.     Have  a good weekend. Go Badgers, Go Pack! Enjoy Ride the Drive and see ya next week.

Winners with bragging rights

I wasn't too sure how you were going to like this week's photo, but the captions exceeded my wishes , so well done one and all. Now to the difficult part; choosing the winners. We begin with the honorable mentions, starting with: Kraig, who is always so wonderfully random:    Sorry sir, but there is no glass allowed in the pool area. Up next is Tammy.  I want to work where she does:  Must be casual Friday! I think Tim is on the right track with this one:   Jonathan fumes at the live remote from Halloween Express... Damn I wish Kitty was better; she could do this crap... Tina must be a science major: As Chewbacca continued his genealogy research, it became more and more clear that he was at the top of the evolutionary ladder. Gino knows how to party: "Hah! Let's see the girls beat me at strip poker tonight!" Our first runner-up is Jim because, well, we've all been there, haven't we.  "Why didn't I go to the bathroom before I got dressed?" AND OUR WINNER of the CD's and stuff is KENT!!!    Robert's mother knew immediately that her son needed some pointers in how to dress on his first day of the school year.  She, like everyone, knew that one does NOT wear horns after Labor Day.   So have a fun weekend, GO PACK and stuff. Look for another fun photo on Wednesday!

Fabulous Winners!

It's winner time again. I was hoping the photo wasn't too random for you, and once again, you exceeded my expectations. I  never should  have doubted you. Let's being with the honorable mentions, starting with Tina:  Ah, arranged marriages. Blame Canada!      John made me chuckle:  Just one look at an old Montreal Expos Media Guide and it’s clear why they are no longer a team. Brian almost always makes me crack up, this week is no exception:  Contrary to popular belief, Captain & Tennille's popularity started early and remained evident with the release of the hugely popular "Muskcat Love". Along those lines is Kurt's subtle play on words:  As Jack sheltered the family cat from the approaching storm, Jill prepared to bat and gown the hatches. Our first runner-up is Ray!  If you don't tell the other guys on the team about the dress, I won't tell them what you do with that cat.       And this week's WINNER of the magazines and Los Lonely Boys pinata is FLIP!! Neil Young had intended this photograph to be the cover of Harvest.  The picture was taken by Stray Gator Jack Nitzsche and titled Canadian youth at play.  Young loved the photo but Elliot Mazer pushed him to go with the more simple script cover. Young eventually caved and the picture was sold to a Canadian stock photography distributor. Have an awesome weekend, GO BADGERS... and see ya next week.

Some tasty winners

Happy Labor Day Weekend caption fans. We leave you to your long weekend with some smiles, courtesy of your friends who play along. We start with this week's honorable mentions, beginning with: Kurt  Flicka bowed his in prayer to give thanks that his future no longer included the possibility of being in a Happy Meal Next up is Jan because this line is almost always funny!   I shoulda took a left at Albuquerque. Adam made me smile with this one:  Looks closed.  Where's the nearest White Castle? So did Tony:  "Awwww, man! This was supposed to be McRib month, too!" Don't you hate when that happens? I had a hard time choosing between the last two, but Paul recently won.. however, I LOVED this one:  “I TOLD the advance scouting party not to stop off for a Happy Meal at the Golden Arches, but would they listen to me? No!” And finally...trumpet fanfare please.. the winner of the All American prize package is Philip because he really looked carefully at the photo:                             "Alas, poor Carrot-top...and Telly Savalas...and Francis, the Talking Mule...oh, and the Three Stooges. Thankfully, I knew none of them."

New, non-recycled winners!

Sadly, another week of caption fun has come to an end. At least we didn't get and  earthquake or hurricane. What we DID get is a bunch of funny captions. Let's  start with the honorable mentions! Up first Brian!  It's never the first beer that makes you stupid stuff.  Another lesson learned... Next up is Geno:  Gene Simmons knew at an early age, that he had a gift to share with the world! and Connie:  Wait! I missed a spot! Tammy goes artistic.  Edvard Munch called he wants me to model for one of his paintings! Our first runhner-up is Philip, who submitted several good captions. This was my favorite: Even at the tender age of 9 months, Stutz Bearcat, inventor of the tongue depressor, felt the inevitable pull of destiny.          And our WINNER of the recycled prize package is SUE!    Sure it's warm outside now, but I have to be ready with the perfect expression for the first time I freeze my tongue to the flag pole! Thanks everyone. Have a fun weekend. The weather is going to be great and there are TONS of things to do...stay safe!

Recycled Prizes!!!

This week, the caption contest recycles. We recycled the very first photo I had you caption. Now I have some recycled prizes, starting with some biodegradable golf tees made from corn.  To go along with the tees, I have 2 DVD's that were given to me by a friend and I am re-gifting; Caddyshack and Grandma's Boy.   If that were not enough, this week's winner gets to browse the prize closet and  select 2 unclaimed prizes to add to their fabulous recycled prize package. Good luck!!!

The Caption Contest believes in recycling!

Did you know we have been playing the caption contest game for over a year and a half?!  I KNOW! Time flies, doesn't it. It all started one day when I couldn't think of anything to write about in my blog, and went surfing to see what I could find. I found THIS photo.  I got to thinking...since I am recycling prizes that were not picked up, I thought I would recycle the photo that started it all, since there are SO many more people playing along. So, please give me your best caption to this photo and you get to choose from among the unclaimed prizes.. and there are lots of cool things there from rock and roll stickers, to books, to autographed stuff, to DVDs and CD's. Your deadline is Friday at 4 PM. Good luck, have fun and, as always, play nice!

Some meaty winning captions

YAY! It's almost the weekend and time to make someone's dreams come true by winning this week's caption contest. ( Well, if the dream of weird assorted prizes that is). As always we begin with the honorable mentions, starting with Jan:  Times are tough and so is the food.          up next,  Justin for his " let's ignore the obvious" caption: Etiquette question:  Which of the three spoons should he use for this portion of the meal? I wanna eat at Queenie's house:  Barb,I told ya we were gonna need more sauce! Alan must go to restaurants with large portions:  Good thing I ordered the petite cut. Our runner -up is Andy because it's just so evil:  The last known picture of Big Bird. But our winner, who gets to choose from a huge assortment of unclaimed prizes is: PAUL Way back in the deepest recesses of his mind, Felix knew that eventually he'd have to admit that the whole Weight Watchers thing just wasn't working out for him.   Oh Paul, I've been there! Have a great weekend, stay cool, eat corn and go see some live music .

Then the lucky winner will get to go through a bunch of past, unclaimed prizes and choose your own! Here's a little peek into the box of goodies: See.. I know you totally want these. Good luck!

Another week of captions come to a close, and I now "face" the job of " hand" selecting the winners. We start with the honorable mentions.

Up next is Philip:  The infamous Doomsday Clock finally reaches midnight... Then we had Tammy, because you can never go wrong with a Rocky Horror reference:   Let's do the Time Warp Again! It's just a jump to the left.. Our first runner-up is Paul for his disturbingly involved caption!  The year: 1936.  The place: the top-secret research and development lab at noted Swiss clock manufacturer Tickentocken in Zurich. The speaker: Heinrich Dusselmann, Chief Scientist and Department Manager: “Eureka! We’ve done it! Finally, an alternative to the cuckoo clock: a truly portable timepiece with a built-in alarm!”                                                  And the WINNER of the Sun Prairie Blues  Festival tickets is TINA! Sadly, Busby Berkeley's great grandson Big B Berkeley did not inherit his family's talent for big production numbers. Thanks for playing along. See ya next week!

Dah.. we have winners!

Another week of strange captions is winding down. Are you ready for the best captions? We start with the honorable mentions, beginning with Peter's political caption: You must be one of the right-wing fat cats funding Republicans in Wisconsin.  Nice to meet you.  I'm here to kick your ass.          Then  we had Jake:   " An American cat called Garfield, beat him in an international lasagna eating contest Prime Minister, but comrade Claws had last laugh, he ate Garfield." Tom took a similar approach: Pietrov was embarrassed that his daughter's kitty, snowball ate his German Shepard, but he had to make it to the role call.  Hopefully no one would notice. Both Philip and Sheila were short and to the point, starting with Philip:  CAT: "Eh, it's a living..." and Sheila:  Damn this humidity! I loved Kraig's play on words:  On the down side, we lost the Afghan War.  On the bright side, our top geneticists have developed an Afghan cat that you can actually use as an afghan.  Top that one, capitalist pigs! Our first runner-up is Brian:  We met online on eHarmony.  I think her picture was Photoshop'd.                                                                                    And this week's winner of all these prizes is: DONNA! "Yeah, go ahead and laugh dirtbag...just wait 'til I use you for a scratching post." Have a good weekend everyone. See ya next week.

More prizes you might want to win... or not.

As you think of a clever caption to this week's photo, keep in mind the abundance of prizes selected for the winner. Let's start with a Miss Kitty Dunn contribution, an X-Files promotional pocket mirror, add to that a Hot Tuna temporary tattoo. Up next a lovely (?) piece of table art of an alligator offering free bird food. PLUS, a Pearl Jam 3 CD deluxe edition of VS  and Vitology which includes a live show from 1994.  All these can be yours if I choose your caption this week. Good luck!

Here winner winner winner....

After careful deliberations I have determined this week's winners! We start with the honorable mentions, beginning with Niki:    This little piggy was the market.              up next, Kraig: Attendees at PETA's Rally to Restore Compassion are forced to watch how they make the sausage. Tina's answer made me hungry! Biggest. Pig. Roast. EVER! I loved Little John's music related caption:  Pink Floyd concert prop gone aray! Paul went political:  OK, that's it...the FINAL straw...this genetic engineering stuff MUST come to an end!!! John had a  number of good ones, but I liked this one best:  Note to self: Never order milk at Famous Dave’s again. The first runner-up is Derek for his play on words:   We're "Hog Wild" for buying local!    Derek shares the grand prize with Christopher A, for his literary reference! In a horrible retelling of "Lord of the Flies", the schoolchildren find themselves stranded on a deserted island populated by Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade balloons instead of wild pigs, leaving them to subsist solely on helium. Both will receive the 3 day passes to the People Fest as well as 2 CD's of their choice from our prize closet.             Thanks to all who played along!

Another week of cool captions with 2 winners!!

Boy, was I impressed with the quality of the captions this week. You all deserve kudos!  I wish I had prizes for everyone, but, alas, I don't. Let's begin with this week's  honorable mentions, starting with some political captions, Up first is Jan:  When the crowd was asked, "Who of you voted for Scott Walker?", the crowd dummied up except for the one in the back, he heard, "Who of you wants some Johnny Walker?". Then we had John C.       If some of us run as Muppets, we can force a primary. and Brian: Congress is in session. Mr Speaker? In our " play on words" category, comes Wendy's caption:  I know life can become stressful and shocking, but keep your WITS about you and dont loose your HEADS over it. This week will be a little different, and I am awarding prizes to two people. Our first finalist is Steve who gave me three captions and I loved all three. caption one is so random...                               I'm typing this while drinking a glass of water. number two:  It was all peaceful 'til someone yelled "Termite!" And number three, which I LOVED:  1952.  First and last membership meeting for Charlie McCarthyism. Steve was almost our only winner until James gave me THIS caption: "Would you please stand and raise your hand if you are NOT here for the class Algebra for Dummies?" James wins all of this week's prizes, and Steve ALSO wins a pair of tickets to the People Fest  July 11-13 in Hillsboro. Thanks again everyone and have a great weekend!

This Week's Clever Winners

Boy, did I have a tough time narrowing down this week's entries. I wish I had prizes for everyone, but I don't so... here are this week's winners. We start with the honorable mentions: here's Brian's caption.       After Arnold Palmer discovered that tomatoes generate only enough electricity to power a nail, he chose to pursue an alternate career.  And that boys and girls, is how it all started.  Honest, I read it on the internet Up next is Steve: This week scientists reported that electroshock therapy has absolutely no effect on tomatoes. A couple of the best political captions, starting with Miriam:  Forced to remove metal detectors, the head of Wisconsin's DOA tests a new device for discouraging protests in the Capitol. And Derek:   The People will go to ANY lengths to dial in Triple M in Fitzwalkerstan! Philip always makes me laugh:  "Help me!" demanded Hector, applying another massive electrical charge to the alien tomatoids. "I need ideas for the Caption Contest, damn you!!"     The alien tomatoids remained stubbornly silent. Todd's was simple and funny:  You say tomato...the tomato says YOWCH!! Our first runner-up is Little John:  UW researchers proved today that 9 1/2 acres of tomatoes will provide enough of a charge to  run a prius to the store to pick up the balance of BLT fixin's And this week's BIG WINNER OF THESE FABULOUS PRIZES is:  Tammy            Although acknowledged as a breakthrough, Dr. Seymour's tomato powered ipod could only play music for Little Shop of Horror's. Have a great weekend and see ya next Wednesday with another photo.

Your Friday afternoon laughs are here. WINNERS!

Lots of great captions this week. As always, I thank you for the laughs. We start with the honorable mentions, starting with Anne:   Reduce, reuse, recycle is all well and good, but this time Ed's gone too far. then we had Greg because Garanimals are always funny:  Ever since the elimination of "Garanimals", Jeremy just hasn't been able to capture the look. Steve made me laugh with this: "The tornado sirens were blasting.  I jumped in my sister's armoire.  There was some tossing & turning.  I emerged alive.  Please, no more questions. Let's just dance." Marissa understands a  fashion dilemma: You're right...I'm sorry...I'll go back and change. We can't BOTH be wearing this. The first runner-up is Kraig..who gave me so many great captions I could not choose, so here they all are:  As Barry's parents took one look at his eyes, posture and confident wave, they knew he was going places.  He would be back in their basement before the week was over. Ladies and Gentlemen:  Skippy Longstocking. Two hours earlier, when the whiskey decanter was full, Bob was wearing jeans and a Led Zeppelin T-shirt. And this week's BIG winner of actual good prizes is KENT:       Johnny's parents, upon seeing him ready for Sunday school, were absolutely horrified that he would attempt to leave the house with that cheap dime store bracelet. see ya next Wednesday for more caption fun!

More Random Prizes

Wondering what strange assortment of prizes I have for this week's winner? We start with a  No Parking sign from Woodstock '94. This was at the original site in Bethel, where they were supposed to have a 25th Anniversary concert. The " official" one was in Saugerties, 90 minutes away. Anyway, the concert was on, then off, then on, then off and finally, cancelled, even th0ugh 10,000 people or so showed up, including me. We add to that some groovy " refraction" glasses to make the fireworks even MORE psychedelic. Then  I have a Jeff Beck DVD, "Rock 'n Roll Party" , featuring, among others, Les Paul songs. Finally, a pin for Steve Cropper's " Dedicated" The deadine for your caption is Friday @ 4 PM.

This week' clever WINNERS!

Another week draws to an end, but we still have one bit of business to attend to: this week's winners! We start with 2 topical captions, starting with:  Nick Just when you thought the Anthony Weiner fiasco couldn't get any stranger, a new picture emerged on Twitter. and Tony Anthony Wiener's earlier photos weren't as explicit as his later work, but they were still disturbing none-the-less. I love the short but sweet ones: Art Paul I feel like there is something wrong with my outfit. Is my tie crooked ? Steve:  "Does this caption make me seem relevant?" and John Anime: Japan’s payback for the A-bomb. Our first runner-up is Anne: "Blue on blue, heartache on heartache...There's sadness in the air and I'm as blue as I can be," Bobby sang as he put the finishing touches on his costume for the Harper Valley karaoke contest. AND THE WINNER IS GARY: Be honest, is this the outfit for me to meet the new in-laws? Gary wins 2 games and an Elvis mug!

Beat the Drum for WINNERS!

Another week comes to an end, with this week's caption contest winners. We start with honorable mentions: starting with Todd          If he asks you to pet his unicorn...it's a trap! then we  had Mike, who has as much going on in his caption as the photo does: I'll Never Take Ambien with a Shot of Nyquil and a Shot Of Tequilla Again...Oh But Wait, Maybe This Isn't a Dream, Perhaps It Is a Home Makeover by Richard Simmons...Yea, My Legs work, My Arms Move..I Feel Like Dancing..I'm Gonna Set up my Web Cam and Give Charlie Sheen a Run for his Sanity....... Up next is John C, who remembers great 50's TV shows: WORK! After the big fallout with Dobie Gillis, Maynard G. Krebs lived a simple, solitary life.  Our first runner up is Eric for his Princess Pinky caption: After weeks of torture, princess pinky finally escapes her horrible nightmare. And this week's BIG WINNER of the Phish CD/DVD and more is SKUNKY for his rambling caption!      Randy sloooooowly realizing that all his drums are A-OK and that the tornado he saw come sweeeeping through the inside of his house didn't mess things up too bad!  What he'll SOON realize is that there was no tornado at all, he's wearing his favorite childhood puppet as a cup, he can't recall the last 9hours, and that the acid he ate was a little stronger than he was told! Thanks everyone. Have a great weekend!

Last Winners Before the Rapture!

Ah yes, creepy guy captions. I love 'em! Thanks to everyone for your very creative  captions. We had several themes running through the week,  starting with the rapture! First up, Denise: Hey guys, I need a ride to the rapture party, does anyone have room for me and my non-concealed weapon? then we had  Jan S.  The grim reaper decides to take out as many as he can before everyone gets raptured on Saturday. Ronald McDonald is up next, starting with Lisa: After sizing up his evil twin, Ronald McDonald second guesses "infectious happiness" as his choice of weapon for the Doppleganger Throw-Down 2011. Kraig:  When Mickey D's execs asked their marketing gurus to come up with a "hipper, edgier" Ronald McDonald, this was not exactly what they had in mind. And I LOVED the play on words from Jim:  Meet Ronald our new hedge fund manager. We were honored to have a political star play along: Scatt Walker:  "You think parking is difficult?  Wait until you get inside and try to vote." one more Grim Reaper caption, this time from RSSGF: When the Grim Reaper's schedule is too full, he calls in his brother, the Slightly-More-Cheery Reaper But this week's BIG WINNER of all these fabulous prizes is this simple and to the point caption from Jared:   Worst. Bris. Ever. Have a great weekend and I expect to see you all here next week!
