Caption Winner Announced

The staff at Crotchety Old Man World Wide Headquarters and Discount House of Worship got together and reached a decision for the caption this week that was, well, let's just say if I actually paid them, I'd dock their pay this week. You'll see why in a few minutes.

Anyway, we received over 60 captions, so the job was a difficult one.

Some first place votes were scored by Swirl Girl, MA Fat Woman, and Rubbish. Others impressing the judges and scoring poiunts were Etta, VE, Shadow, Joel, Moooog, Paotie, Drty Grty, Dan, Nancy, Bonnie Story, and Petra.

Mrs Crotchety Old Man, "and when you finish those dishes come rub my feet!"

Let me know which blog you would like featured.

Second place went to Mooog, and third went to Swirl Girl.

Thanks again to everyone for making this another successful week.

I think I need to scrub my mind after seeing that picture. Congrats to the winner-- and frankly, to ANYONE able to force their brain to process that enough to come up with a caption.

@ Etta: It was a tough call.

@ Dizz, Marie, Deb, Lauren: It was classic

@ Mooooog: Second out of nearly 70 is respectable. But still makes you a loser.
Sorry, Dooood.

@ Petra: Yup, two of the judges liked your caption as one of their top 3.

@ Don: Yeah, I've never posted a sick picture here before. It was a first for me, too.

@ Kirsten: That happens a lot, too.

@ Jenn: We do go through a lot of brain bleach at HQ.

I don't see how you manage to pick out only one winner. So many of the captions are creative as well as funny!

Thanks for the Award! All the captions were really funny. Mr. Crotchety, what ARE you doing with a picture like that? I see you in a whole new light.

Da Old Man said...

@ Sandee: Sorry

@ Shadow: True

@ Paul: It's a tough job, that's why I have a group of judges, and they cone to a concensus.

@ Quirky: That's the spirit. She is a lovely woman-ish person.

@ Sheila: It's not from my personal collection. I blame the Google.
