Caption Contest 8: Avast!

The HeroMachine Caption Contest 8 has now begun! If you come up with the funniest caption for this comic book panel, you'll win a custom black and white drawing by professional (and startlingly bald) illustrator Jeff Hebert, creator of HeroMachine:

Caption Contest 8

A sample entry might be:

Balloon1: Bosun, this periscope only has a RIGHT-eye socket, you idiot, I can't use this!
Balloon2: I DRINK YOUR MILKSHAKE!!

Here are the rules:

  1. Enter by leaving your caption in the comments to this post, and no more than three entries per person.
  2. Clearly indicate what dialog goes in which balloon.
  3. Keep it clean -- anything that would fly on your average broadcast television sitcom is fine.

Good luck to everyone, it's going to be hard to beat last week in terms of either quantity or quality!
