The staff at Crotchety Old Man World Wide Headquarters and Discount House of Worship certainly had their work cut out for them as the contest again drew around 50 captions.
Points were scored by Bchbear, Lauren, Chris, Jormengrund, Mike, Moooooog, Lady Sarcasm, Janna, Quirkyloon, Bee, I Hate Commercials, and Shawn.

gets the Zucchini and 500 EC credits.
Second place went to Janna, and third, was Lady Sarcasm.
In an unprecedented move, I am awarding Shawn some EC credits because his caption "Reservoir Bunnies" just made me
My friends at Bad Gals Radio are participating in a boycott of Entrecard. Today, Friday, is a drop-free day. If enough of the big droppers participate, perhaps EC will take notice. I have no problem with them trying to make money, as EC has long been one of my favorite ways to find new blogs and connect with bloggers, but the current plan was poorly thought out, and a total disaster.
I don't want to leave EC, but if things don't change quickly, this no drop day is only the first step.
I stuck with them when it was announced, and stayed through the first humongous batch of paid ads, but as I continue to get a boatload of new ads every day, it has become obvious that I was mistaken. EC has become a mess.
For today, I'll leave the widget up there, but won't drop. I'm not sure about tomorrow, but I'll probably just drop on my friends and the blogs I really like to read. That is what I did Thursday, and I was done in 2 hours, rather than the 4 or more I usually spend. I don't just drop on EC, I read every blog.
On Thursday, I didn't waste my time on any of the blogs that still insist on using the Digg Tool that slows down load time, nor did I visit any of the blogs that apparently have a virus that shuts off my computer. I also avoided the blogs that have so much "stuff" that it takes two minutes or more to load. Sorry to be so cranky, but I'm not going to visit blogs when the blogger doesn't care enough to try to make the blog accessible in a reasonable amount of time.
I am not going to "Digg" your post (really, how many are you getting? Enough to warrent pissing potential readers off?) I could not care less what your Alexa, PR, or any other rating is. If I want to know, I can find out in seconds without the stupid widget. I want to read your blog. I don't need bells and whistles that don't work right, anyway.
If you did any of this stupid crap, and you fixed it, I just made you a better blogger.
I also now am on Twitter, so eventually I'll figure that out and get a widget here someplace. I didn't want to do it, but if I leave EC, I'm going to need to do something to build traffic. I thought of providing better posts, but we all know that isn't going to happen.
