Caption Contest

Wednesday: Happy Hump Day!

I am so glad it's Wednesday.  Last Friday's post was troubling and Monday's was somber (befitting the occasion).  But today it's time for some fun.  And to celebrate, we're having a...

Hump Day Caption Contest

I haven't done one of these for awhile so let's go over the rules.  Below are five funny pictures.  Give me your best caption for one or more of them.  For each caption you leave in your comment, I'll add your name to the drawing: five captions = five chances to win.   

The winner gets a free book selected from a list (assorted genres) I will e-mail to him/her after the drawing. U.S. and Canadian entries only, please. I can't afford the postage for my friends across the pond (any of the ponds). And make sure to leave your e-mail address.

Ready?  Let see those captions.

(Please ignor the caption already on this on. I know you can do better.)

5. 


Lord, that last one cracks me up.

Okay, did you come up with some good ones?  I love to do this because your captions are the best part of the post.  Hope you enjoy it, too.

You have until midnight on Saturday, June 2, to enter your comments.


Groaner of the Day:  One day, a man decided to learn some new sports. He spent time finding out what was available and after a few months, he called some of his friends to watch him try out some of his ideas.

They all followed him up to the top of a local cliff. Not a big cliff, but still they were puzzled about why he had taken them there.

"Let me show you," he said, and produced from a cage a small yellow bird. He held the bird by the feet, and proceeded to jump off the cliff. 

His friends were obviously worried, but he was fine, albeit slightly bruised, and returned to the top of the cliff.

"Well, " he said, after a pause, "I don't think much of this budgie-jumping."

So, then he revealed that he had also brought a chicken with him. His friends were forced to watch an almost identical sequence of events all over again.

Once again, he hit the sand at the bottom of the cliff, trudged back to the top, and said to his by now growing audience, "Hen-gliding doesn't seem to work for me either."

Finally, he tried once more. This time, it was a parrot. Again, he leapt off the cliff holding the unfortunate bird by the feet. This time though, as he jumped, he pulled out a hand gun, and shot the bird as he fell.

The end results were pretty much the same, though, and he arrived at the top of the cliff with yet more bruises.

The crowd waited to hear what he would say this time.

He paused, scratched his head, and opened his mouth.

The crowd hushed....

Finally, he said: "And that's the last time I try parrot-shooting too."



(Hey, what are complaining about?  That was three groans for the price of one.)

I am captioned-out today. But #3 cracked me up. I can just imagine them howling out a drinking song.

I am shocked that Mike Keyton up there didn't supply the words to that drinking song. I'm sure he knows plenty.

;-)

Stacy McKitrick said...

#1 - "Mommy, she won't come out and I have to go NOW!"

#2 - "Told you, you wouldn't fit."

#3 - I couldn't think of any drinking buddy songs, either, but that's where my mind went.

Completely went blank for #4 & #5.

You don't have to add me to the drawing. I'm good!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I'll just go for the first one:
"Promise you won't laugh?"

Elana Johnson said...

Those pictures are HILARIOUS. I love that last one. I am terrible at captions, but I'm laughing, so that counts, right?

LD Masterson said...

Mike - Good ones. But Maria seems to think you should have had some drinking somg lyrics for me. Not too late...

LD Masterson said...

Linda G - Oh, those are great. You're a natural at this.

LD Masterson said...

Cute ones!

Aw, Kim - not even going to try a caption?

LD Masterson said...

Although they weren't eligible for the contest, a couple of my grandkids offered their caption ideas. I promised I'd share them:

1. Hurry up before I have to dance.

2. It's for a drive in mooooovie.
2. Hey, I want a turn.

3. Never bite me again.

4. I can see the world from up here.
4. Is that a chipmunk?

5. Do I have anything in my teeth?
