The Weekly Caption Contest

By Michael Murray and Replica | Miscellaneous | August 31, 2012 | Comments ()


Oh, I have to say that there is no doubt in my mind that the caption submissions for the image Replica provided last week were the best we've yet received. Everybody gets an emoticon, they were that good. J With such a flush of quality I found it entirely impossible to narrow it down to just three, so I narrowed it down to just five. As a reminder, this was the image from last week:

Fifth place goes to L.O.V.E. for this effort:

Dammit, Lola!

Last time you wore those yellow feathers in your hair,
and a dress cut down to there,
I was struck in the back by a chair,
left to clean up blood stains everywhere!

Obviously, he's been awarded strictly for posting a Barry Manilow video. You should all immediately go and checkout that video if you want to see what passed for a classy, straight man at the end of the 70s. As a point of interest I happened to see Barry Manilow on the street a few years ago and you should know that he wears his crisp, likely ironed jeans cinched up near his arm pits.

Fourth place goes to the brilliant spambot jian zan for this:

I am a 54-year-old businessman. I own 2 businesses. Life is busy but I still feel lonely. I've been living alone since my wife passed away 2 years ago. Maybe I should get going. My friends suggest l take a try on ......Ś_ē_n_i_o_r_k_i_s_s_​​i _n_g I got a profile there under "denver54". I would like to meet a quality woman to make my life more adventurous. If you are interested, maybe you can come to say hi.

jian zanbot, I think you've really captured something here, moving the primary character from the image 30 years into the future. I found your post touching and melancholy, and will certainly recommend Seniorkissing to all my single friends.

Third place goes to frank247 for this:

Augusta National has really gone downhill since they let women into the clubhouse.

He's right, that sweater is so Augusta National, and it was just earlier this month that the antique golf residence decided to allow women to join, so he's bang on with topicality. You should know that noted heterosexual Condoleeza Rice and wealthy person Darla Moore, are now members of the exclusive club, so, yeah, you've come a long way, baby!

Second place is lowercase ryan's, for this effort:

holy shit, the invisibility cloak works!

It just feels right, like a sea breeze promising nudity just a little further down the beach.

The winner though, is the mighty GunNut2600 for this:


GunNut obviously has the ability to read minds based solely on photographs. GN, I urge you to get your own TV show. They say that from acorns do mighty oaks grow, and so we offer you the acorn that is a DVD of Jersey Shore Shark Attack as defaced by some member of the Rowles tribe. Please treasure it like the jewel it is. (Send us your address)

This is the image that Replica has provided this week. I have not a clue what you folks might do with it.
