And the Winner Is

Wow! Over 30 captions. Youse are making it difficult on the judges. You can't imagine how much Diet Dr. Pepper was spit up while they read some of them. The concensus is that most of the participants are hysterically funny, and a few are in need of serious help such as rubba.

Again, the judges spread around the first place votes as Lauren, Middle Aged Fat Woman, Dani, Don, The Hawg, and Rubba each got one 1st place vote. Multiple points were also amassed by Etta, Kate, Jena, and the Offended Blogger.

Bu the winner, and the one with the most first place votes, and total points was

"When a Fruit of the Loom goes bad"

by Chat Blanc.

She wins this lovely award, and some entrecard credits, now that my account is working again.


Second place goes to Dani, and 3rd place is a tie between the Hawg and The Middle Aged Fat Woman.

Also, special props to Bill. Some of the judges felt he really classed up the contest by working in the word "thus."

Congrats to the winners.

I wanna say that even though I got silver, it's still gold to me....I want to give thanks to my Mom, the ex crack whore for embarassing me so many times in my life, that I have no self esteem left. I want to give thanks to my drunken sister for being such a good drunk. I also want to thank my job for paying me to sit on my ass tonight to write my acceptance speech. Hmmmmm I have so many more to thank....

I love to look at those zucchinis; they make me feel warm and cozy all over (.)(.) My therapist says third place is good enough to keep me out of therapy for a week.
