Happy Hump Day - Caption Contest

Happy Hump Day!  Although for many of us, it's a short work week this week so we're getting over the hump a little sooner than usual. Still, I feel like doing something I haven't done for a while - a CAPTION CONTEST.

The rules are simple. Leave me a comment with your best caption for one or more of the pictures below (aw, come on, do all five) and your e-mail address.  Deadline is Saturday at midnight.  I'll throw everyone's name in a hat and draw a winner.  The prize is a book of the winner's choice picked from a selection of titles I'll send to the winner.

Ready, set, caption:






Did you think of some good ones?  I can't wait to read them.

Groaner of the Day:  A young man was in love with two women and could not decide which of them to marry. Finally he went to a marriage counselor. When asked to describe his two loves, he noted that one was a great poet and the other made delicious pancakes.

"Oh," said the counselor, "I see what the problem is. You can't decide whether to marry for batter or verse."


Angela Brown said...

"...batter or verse." *snare drum roll lol!!!*

Here are my captions:
1. The first one to take a nibble gets it.
2. Awww...what could possibly be said about this much cuteness?
3. Three stopped being a crowd two miles back.
4. And then there was one.
5. He's adopted but I love'em just the same.

I don't know which is funnier, the photos or the groaner. I give a try at #4 - They said it would hold my weight.

Have a great day.

Sarah, based on your first one, I think you have a flair.

Maryann Miller said...

1. "Oh, please, do you think I'm afraid of a few mice?"

2. "My Snuggie. Go away."

3. "Where's the clown car? We can fit."

The puppy with the teddy bear and the polar bear are soooo adorable. Unfortunately, my brain is in off mode so I couldn't come up with any good ones.

LD Masterson said...

Ah, Dru, my favorite groaner fan. Great captions.

Such fun:)

1. They said it was a freckle, they never told me it would come alive and multiply!

2. Back off buster, she's mine!

3. I just know my mum is laughing in heaven for all the trouble I put her through, what goes around comes around.

4. They always said if you swallowed a watermelon seed it would grow in my tummy, but no one said anything about eating ice-pops!

5. I won't hear anymore about it, he may be a little different, but he is still my baby.

Isis Rushdan said...

Hi! I swung by yesterday morning, am UK and this wasn't posted yet, but I remembered to come back :).

#2: I don't wanna

#4: Crap! Not again.

Need to mark my calendar to check out the winners :).

LD Masterson said...

Oh, those are great, denise. I love number #3. Thanks for playing.

LD Masterson said...

Isis - Yes, I was late getting this posted. I'm glad you came back. Your caption voices are spot on. I can hear both of them.

Arlee Bird said...

Sorry, but for some reason those photos kind of creeped me out. Actually so did the groaner. But I guess I'd go for the pancakes.

Lydia K said...

I was enjoying these too much to write captions. I love what other people have written so far!

LD Masterson said...

Really? Gee, I'm sorry, Lee. That's the last thing I wanted to do.

LD Masterson said...

Lydia, if the caption urge should strike you later, come on back and give it a try. It's fun.

Maria Zannini said...

Sheesh, I've been so busy I thought I already posted here.

I still can't get over the first picture so that's the one I'll choose to caption.

Mice to the left of me. Mice to the right. A pox upon me!

LD Masterson said...

Maria - Better late than never. Cute caption.
