caption contest: car wreck – how did this happen

Standard

We haven’t had a caption contest recently, so let’s get that restarted.  It’s real simple to play — think of something funny / humorous to go with this picture.  The only rule is to keep it clean.  And regardless of whether you have anything to contribute, you can enjoy the comments other people leave, too.

Let me also add that comments usually pour in over the next week, so this is the type of post that it’s good to check back on.  You can also subscribe to the comments (whether for just this post or all comments) if you would rather be notified that way.

caption contest, tough guy

Standard

It’s time for another caption contest!  (Well, past time, but my schedule has been somewhat discombobulated lately.)

This week’s picture features a guy who is looking tough (or at least trying to).  There’s no background info, so you’ll have to use your imagination.  You can create circumstances however you see fit — whether with current events or in the past, whether he’s part of a singing group or a long-lost relative or even one of your friends.  (I have a feeling Mango-Man will be brought into this one…)  Other ideas: what is he thinking?  What does his friends think?  What is his job?  The only rules are to make it funny and keep it clean.  Have fun!

caption contest, space laser shooting house

Standard

For the next caption contest, I want to use a picture from a recent post.  (Hope that’s okay, because I’m doing it anyway!)  We recently talked about creating our own space laser inator, and one of the pictures showed a purple laser burning a house.  I have no actual context for this picture, but that matters not.  You get to make up the context.  (For those of you new here, you can write a story or joke to go with the picture.  The only rules are make it funny and keep it clean.)

caption contest, who can explain this one?

Standard

We like to feature unusual photos for our weekly caption contest, to make it more interesting and more random.  We’ve had some really weird pictures so far, but this may be the most random one yet.  I challenge you to come up with a story that comes close to being plausible.  Of course, you can also make jokes or funny observations, if you don’t care to try to explain it.  Most of all, have fun with it.

caption contest, protesters offering flowers to riot police

Standard

I’m finally getting the caption contest restarted.  Having a newborn around the house can wreck havoc on your schedule.  🙂

For those of you who are new subscribers, welcome, and you are welcome to participate in the caption contest.  (We also welcome the first-time guests.)  All you have to do is write something funny about the picture.  It’s that simple.  The only rule is to keep it clean.

This week’s photo features some type of protest, or so it appears — it can be any context you want to think up.  One of the guys is offering a peace flower to a policeman in full riot gear.  You can write from anyone’s perspective, even as an outsider or as yourself.  And if you don’t subscribe to the comments already, it’s good to subscribe to them at least on the caption contests, because that’s when they get really fun.

caption contest, Japanese guys in crazy costumes

Standard

Despite the uncertainty with my calendar this week, I bring you another weekly caption contest.  This week’s photo features Japanese guys in crazy costumes.  What they’re probably doing in real life is fairly obvious, but of course you are free to create any interpretation / interpolation you can imagine.  Actually, it would be more fun if you think outside the box.  For example, how could these picture tie in with world events?  Politics?  A friend of yours?  (And then send them the link to the post.)  Your job?

caption contest, cat attacking man

Standard

You will get a caption contest this week after all!  (There’s some big doin’s goin’ on around here this week, if you haven’t heard.)  This week’s photo features a cat attacking an unsuspecting guy walking by.  You know what to do — write something funny about it.  🙂
