The staff had to put in overtime this week as there were so many really funny captions. But they managed to get through over 60 captions and picked the best of the best.

So many of our talented captioners had the judges guffawing and chuckling at Headquarters that nothing else got done this week. No R&D, no new inventions, and our sales division all but took the week off. And which captions made them so giddy? Well, Moooooog, Dani C, Lola, both of the Dyer Boys (they are good, can you imagine what it must have been like growing up in their house?) Kate, Jenn, Tahtimbo, Haley, Ma Fat Woman, Nooter, Secondary Roads, Thinkinfyou, Shawn, and LL. (ok, LL's wasn't funny to the judges, but it made me LOL. It's one of those ya gotta know the rest of the story ones)

So, it was very close, and the winner by a slim margin is:

Second place went to Lola, and third was Haley.

Congratulations, and thanks to everyone for making this such a great contest.

Meanwhile, in The Price is Right news, today was one of the all-time great episodes. Some really old lady was called to come on down. They went to a commercial, and Drew had to waste time when they came back to allow her to make her way up to the panel. She walked like her shoes were tied togather. When she finally got up, the item for bid was something like tennis rackets.
Her bid was so insane, Drew had to ask her like 5 times. "Are you sure you want to bid $22,000?" Eventualy, she changed it to $2200.
Later in the show, she did win (a different item) and she got up on stage with Drew. She played to win a fully restored 1965 Mustang.

And yes, the show followed my previously suggested The Price is Right/Wimmin Big O Theory and yes, it was disgusting. Photobucket

Today is the final show of the week, and I don't know how I'll make it through the weekend without my "fix."

Winky Twinky said...

Congrats! to the winners... they were all fun to read...

Dani said...

Heyjoe I was thinking that because I'm always close to being a winner but never actually a winner, that you should make an almost a winner zucchini award... This way I don't feel like such a loser with no zucchini...;)

Unknown said...

that was a good one, congrats to The Offended Blogger!

Donnie said...

Good for Chelle. She needed some positive reinforcement...poor thing. Bless her heart!

Chelle Blögger said...

By the way Joe, I kinda tricked out the zucchini and may or may not have turned it into a sex toy. I didn't think you'd mind.

Oh, and Don - your goosestepping needs work! :p
