Caption winner announced

The staff at Crotchety Old Man World Wide Headquarters and Discount House of Worship had no trouble this week picking a winner.

While plenty of captions received votes, one stood out and got all but one judge's first place vote, and we'll get to that in a minute.

Points were scored by Marvel Goose, Humorsmith, Dutch Boy, Orion, Chica, Jormen, MME King, Moooooog, Matt, and the Fitness Diva.

And the Zucchini Award along with 500 EC credits are awarded to:

Augustus Gloop was disappointed to find that not everything in the Wonka factory tasted like chocolate.

Jenn Thorsen

The only other first place vote went to Reforming Geek, who placed second overall. Third went to Marvel Goose.

There were nearly 60 captions, so it was, once again, a great contest.

Thanks to everyone for participating. See you next Wednesday for another contest.

The blog was reviewed by the Rebellious Arab Girl. You can see the review right here:

Thank goodness for that! I can't imagine a watermelon tasting like chocolate or, horrors, a chocolate covered watermelon!

Congrats on your zucchini.

Well done Jen. Funny caption, and hilarious responses from the rest of them as well.

I always tend to look forward to the Crotchety's caption contest... If only for the disturbing pictures that he is somehow able to find...

Rebellious Arab Girl said...

That is seriously a hilarious caption. I was gonna pick that one my self! :)

Congrats Jenn!

I read the lovely Ms. Mona's review yesterday, and I found it most disturbing. For it quickly became obvious to me that you have made quite an impact upon the poor girl, and not a good one, neither! (Yeah, like you could even have a good impact upon someone.) For when I went to leave a comment expressing my concerns for her welfare, the comments were closed. SHAME ON YOU!!!

P.S.: Congrats, my dear Jenn!!! I couldn't have left a better caption myself. In fact, I didn't even try.

I demand a recount!
