Let the Games Begin: Caption Contest

The five finalists for the Write Your Own Caption contest are:

Colleen with:
"mmmm....gummy worms! *sniff* that smells funny....guess I'll give it to mommy to eat. Lellow ones are her favorites anyways."

Danielle with:
"I can't eat this...I like grass...and I think I like this...but I don't like this if it was touching the grass!"

Brian with:
"Dammit, the dog peed on this one, too? I hate that dog."

Flea with:
(Voice over in documentary)
" ... and the domesticated toddler inspects the foliage carefully. Notice that she uses the sense of sight and smell to evaluate the properties, attempting to determine its genus and origin prior to opening her field guide ..."

and Kimmjo with:
"Hmmmm wonder which dog would eat you . . ."

You have until Monday, July 28th at 9:00 pm Burgh time to vote for your favorite. Campaigning for votes is totally recommended and if you can figure out a way to cheat, knock yourself out. Oh, and if you don't like the picks? Blame Mr. Husband. I had absolutely positively nothing to do with it as I was in the kitchen pretending that I'm not domestically challenged. It's quite an act I put on.


  1. Go get 'em Lycos! Get the votes...

  3. Haven't voted yet. I am totally open to bribery for my vote. And even making up names to vote more than once...

  4. *sniff* I've been nominated! It's such an honor!

    And apparently the wad of small, unmarked bills I overnighted to Mr. Husband worked.

    (and really? he didn't go for the green bean comment from Kim? I'm surprised!)

  5. Okay, I promise some love in return for votes.

  6. ok, Brian's is my favorite. funny...

  7. The vote? They are all good, and though it was a hard to pick, I gotta say, FLEA is a genius.

    The photographer? Also a genius.

    The subject? Priceless.

  8. All great choice, but I had to go with Flea!

  9. Since merciless cheating was endorsed by the creator of this competition... I must vote for Flea who begged us to do so on her blog. :)

  10. Flea promised me a new car, so I voted for her :)

    Loved the dog pee comment, too, but Flea wins my vote.

  17. It's like high school all over again, except this time it's not "Most Likely to Fall Under a Bus and Die". Awesome.

  18. Flea is passing out free Fred and Bessie mugs to everyone who votes for her!!

    oh, she's not?

  19. Hrmph. Mr. Husband did not like my comments. I used potty humor and EVERYTHING.
