It's National Joe Day, Caption winner announced

Finally, it's here. I've been so excited waiting for this ever since...well, ever since I found out about it a couple of months ago.

Here are some details from the Church of Joe if you need more information about this most important Holiday.

Major Holiday or not, we at Crotchety Old Man World Wide Headquarters and Discount House of Worship do have some bidness to take care of today. The staff rushed to get everything done because it is only a half day so they can get ready for the Joe Day Festivities later.

We received over 60 captions, and it again proved to be a successful contest. Thanks to everyone who participated because you can't spell "caption contest" without a bunch of letters.

Plenty of points were scored as there were so many hilarious captions. Points were scored by LL, Alicia, ThinkingFyou, Shawn, Moooooog, Mr. New Dilemna, Free the Unicorms, Dizzblnd, Sadie, Jormen, Quirky, Dani, Nooter, Douglas, and Staci.

"This is what happens when the babysitter won't let me watch iCarly"
Jen of Redhead Ranting

was the winner.

A very close second went to Moooooog, and third was Staci.


Thanks to everyone for playing, and next Wednesday will be an extra special one.

Happy National Joe Day!

Let's celebrate by drinking half a gallon of tea and taking a nap until our bladder is the size of a beach ball!

Oooops, wait... that's what I do EVERY day.

Ok fine.

If I want to score at least some runner up points, I'm going to have to think with old people humour.

Splurtch - sorry, that was me vomiting.

Still, I want that zucchini, damnit.

Congrats to Jen! That was a great caption.

Let the celebrations begin for all the Joe's of the world.

Don't forget to catch your own celebration over at my blog. I found another picture of you out there on the Interwebs.

Happy National Joe Day!

Congrats jen!

What can we buy with all the "points" we have accumulated? That's what I need to now. Can we BUY a Zucchini award? I know I could easily steal it, but, that's know how I squash I mean roll.

OK Fine! I'll come up with better captions if you wanna be THAT way :)
