Caption Winner and Stuff I Forgot

The staff at Crotchety Old Man World Wide Headquarters and Discount House of Worship put in overtime to choose the caption winner this week.

Not really. Since this is the Holiday season, with National Joe Day, my birthday and the bloggiversary, it was hard to get them to even show up at HQ.

Lots of terrific captions, and points (which are redeemable for such great gifts as Chinese finger cuffs and Koosh balls) were scored by Jormengrand, Self Deprechaun, Kat, Lauren, Moooooog, Collette, Douglas, The Queen, Quirky, Kirsten, Swirl Girl, Melanie, Tahtimbo, and Creative Queen. But the winner of the caption this "Birthday edition" contest

Next on Access Hollywood: Sad, Sad, Very Sad. As the stars Gather for the Howdy Doody Reunion we learn the years have not been kind to Clarabell.
Second place went to Self Deprechaun, and third was Jormengrand.


And what did I forget?

My bloggiversary. I started blogging 5 years ago on Angelfire on April 2, 2004. That blog is just dead in the water. It sucked, so I won't give a link.
Just for fun, I tried to count how many posts I've made between all my blogs.
The best estimate is around 900. Photobucket

Yeah, I know.
As a personal life blogger, I pretty much blog about me, and totally exposed myself to youse Photobucket

Good thing we're such good friends, huh?

Happy Blogiversary, Joe!

Bunk Strutts said...

Ditto, bro.

You like me, you really, really like me...or at least my caption. I don't know what to say...I didn't prepare any remarks. I'd like to thank the members of the academy...damn, wrong speech. I'd really like to thank the staff of the Crotchety Old Man World Wide Headquarters and Discount House of Worship because if they hadn't stayed home I probably wouldn't have won. Joe thanks for, in a moment of weakness after a few of the celebratory brewskies I sent you, choosing moi. And congrats on your blogiversary.

Congrats to the winner. Great caption.

900 posts? Awesome.

Jormengrund said...

Congrats to all.

Happy blogiversary Joe!

Geez.. You trying to milk this month or what? I mean, first you claim your b-day, and now a blogiversary?

What's next?? *wink*

Have a great weekend.

That caption absolutely deserved to win!

5 Years! WOW! You ARE old. LOL

Way to go for NoNameDufus, who tackled a very tough (eyebleeding) photo and came away with a winner.

Also, congrats on that remarkable five year bloggiversary... It's mind-blowing to think of the quantity of content you've developed over the years... May there be five more years ahead of you-- and then some.

Yeah to nonamedufus. Nice going. That picture still nauseates the hell out of me though. Gag-

@ Jormen: It does seem everything happened all at once. That's why I forget stuff.

@ Lauren: Yes.

@ Jenn: Quantity. Sadly, quality has been rather meh.

@ Don: I did warn everyone that it would be extra special.
