Happy Hump Day Caption Contest

Happy Hump Day.  It's time for another Hump Day Caption Contest.  You know how it works - give me a caption for one or more of the five pictures below and your name goes into the hat (one time for each caption) for a drawing to win a free book.  The winner gets to chose from a list of titles. 

We've had some great captions in past contests. Let's see if we can top them.






Ready, set, go!

And don't forget to leave me your e-mail address so I can contact the winner.

Groaner of the Day: This piece of string walks into a bar. Before he gets halfway to the bar, the bartender calls out "Hey! String! We don't serve your sort in here."

Not to be deterred, the string tries to order a drink, but when the bartender pulls a pair of scissors out from behind the bar, the piece of string decides to leave, running for the door.

Hours later, the piece of string is still frustrated at not being able to get a drink anywhere. He's all twisted up and his ends are coming loose from being thrown out of so many bars.

Before going into the last bar, the piece of string ruffles his ends up even more and contorts himself even more.

As he goes into the last bar, the bartender calls out "Hey! You!" Looking carefully, he asks "Are you a piece of string?"

Feigning ignorance, the piece of string says "No, I'm a frayed knot."

Great photos! I've only got one...

For photo #2..."Dude! Don't be such a ground-HOG!"

Happy Wednesday! ☺

Isis Rushdan said...

#1: True love

#2: Mine! It's mine, mine, mine!

#3: Naptime bliss.

#4: What a guy has to do to please his woman. Heaven forbid I ask her to move over.

#5: What do you think of my big boy roar?

Have a happy hump day!

Maria Zannini said...

These pictures just made me laugh--which is more than I can say for the groaners. Oy!

I'll sub a caption for #2.

"Dude, you're doing it wrong. Here, let me help you crack that nut."

Stacy McKitrick said...

I groaned at the groaner and could only come up with 2 captions.

#2 - Eating in the park is for the birds.

#5 - I don't care how wide you open your mouth, I can't see inside your stomach.

LD Masterson said...

Larri - That was worthy of a Groaner.

LD Masterson said...

Isis - Love them. You always come up with five good ones for me.

LD Masterson said...

Maria - Aw, come on - sometimes the groaners make you laugh. And your caption did the same for me.

LD Masterson said...

Stacy - Your caption for number five really got me. Perfect.

Maryann Miller said...

Just have one caption for you today for number #2: One for me, none for you... One for me... none for you...."

I love the pic of the pets sleeping the strip of sun. Very...I'm not sure, but I like it.

I didn't get the Groaner of the Day, though. Lol. Perhaps its humor flew over my head, or just didn't tickle my particular funny bone. Oh well. ;)

Jessica R. Patch said...

#3 Ducks in a row, my butt.

#1 See what happens when you don't moooooove over.

"Yep, definitely strep."

Frayed knot. Good one. :)

Arlee Bird said...

Damn! I laughed at the groaner.

Okay I usually don't do these caption things but what the heck.

1. This is what happens when you count cows instead of sheep.

2. "I've gone to the birds."

3. "Hey, it's cheaper than going to Florida."

4. Cross Cats

5. "Me and my big mouth."

Hmmm--That's the best I can come up with for now.

Sarah Allen said...

Haha, these are great! Ok, lets see...

#1: "She'll get over it, dude. For now just crash at my pad."

#2: "Hey hog, Imma let you finish, but my forest has the best nuts of all TIME!"

#3: Catnap. I mean...

#4: Excuse me, I had the diet kibble...

#5: But see! I'm already full!

That was fun :)

LD Masterson said...

Maryann - Good one.

LD Masterson said...

Lauren - Not offering a caption? Bet you've got a good one.

Sorry about the groaner. I'll try to tickle your funny bone better next time.

LD Masterson said...

Jessica - I think your caption on #1 qualifies as a groaner.

LD Masterson said...

Lee - Ha! Gotcha with the groaner.

Great captions.

LD Masterson said...

Sarah - Love your number four. Purr-fect.

Liz Fichera said...

#1: You Snooze, You Lose

All of the photos are adorable. I love the little squirrel too.

Jessica R. Patch said...

LD, yep. Totally agree! ;)

Lydia Kang said...

I've actually heard that joke!

Love those pictures. I'm enjoying them too much to think up captions.
