Pajiba's Inaugural Caption This Contest -- There Will Be Prizes

It’s been a long time coming.

Other agencies, like the lame New Yorker, have been running caption contests where their constituent pigeons send in shameful, Jay Leno type jokes. It’s irritating and embarrassing to watch, let alone participate in, and so we’re going to kick all those other loser enterprises to the curb and launch our own. Pajiba is going to get this motherfucker right, and by right I mean wrong, so very, very wrong.

Only the collective genius of Pajiba can take an image and distort, desecrate, contextualize, amplify, satirize and distill into a pitch perfect piece of gold. And so, each week we will be doing this, and you should know that there is a prize, too. We don’t know what this prize is yet, but it looms big, bright and beautiful. It could be a car or a Skype date with Dustin Rowles, or maybe a pet. We’re not sure right now—life is busy— but know that there will be a prize.

(Publisher’s Note: The prize will be your very own DVD copy of Jersey Shore Shark Attack signed by “Dustin Rowels”).

Don’t worry.

Someone will win this prize each week by a method not yet determined. This method might be grossly unfair, it might have something to do with a Ouija Board, inappropriate favors or it might be some sort of system of voting, but most likely it will be whatever is easiest, which means a loosely defined consensus from the commentators.

You should also know that all the images are being found, stolen or created by the lovely and talented Replica, so all praise to her.

This is the first image.

I offer up this caption:

“I’m yours for $100 an hour, but there are no safe words, okay?”
