Caption Contest 39: Getting to the "point"

I am happy to announce that we have a Guest Judge for the caption contest this week. Jeff Rients from "Jeff's GameBlog" chose our panel (a Conan theme to go along with his interest in pen and paper RPGs) and will pick the winner next Tuesday. I'm not saying that going to his blog and raving about how awesome he is will get you a win, but hey, it can't hurt!

Now, here's your challenge! Come up with the best/funniest/most appropriate caption for this panel:


And you'll win your very own black and white custom illustration from professional artist Jeff Hebert (i.e. me). The rules are simple:

  1. Keep it clean (appropriate for late-night broadcast network TV);
  2. Leave your entry in the comments to this post; and
  3. No more than three entries per person.

Now put that thinking cap on and get busy! And many thanks to Jeff Rients for agreeing to help out this week, I get a lot out of reading his gaming blog and appreciate the chance to work with him on this.

  34. Avatar Mdonle says:

    1) Does this mean I can apply for a discorporate bail-out?

    “I should quit while I´m still ahead.”

  48. Avatar Tom says:

    All right…maybe I *do* have a problem with depth perception.

    Conan, could you brush that fly away from my speech balloon?

  51. Avatar Age of Fable says:

    (corrected version of a previous post)

    “That’s one way to get ahead”…What are you, Roger Moore? Pathetic. For one thing, if anyone’s ‘gotten a head’, it’s you. Now, if you’d cut my legs off you could’ve said I ‘don’t have a leg to stand on’…

  52. Avatar Age of Fable says:


    1) You may kill me, but another will rise. And he too will offer you cheap Canadian Viagra.

    2) I don’t think ‘turn that frown upside down’ means what you think it means…

    3) ‘That’s one way to get ahead’…What are you, Roger Moore the Barbarian? Pathetic. For one thing, if anyone’s ‘gotten a head’, it’s you. Now, if you’d cut my legs off and said I ‘don’t have a leg to stand on’…by the way, can you do ‘air quotes’ for me?

  53. Avatar marx says:

    *sigh* …it happens every time.

  54. Avatar cr0m says:

  57. Avatar Bael says:

    “Vorpal Dagger, my a…”

  58. Avatar Loki says:

    oops thats “I don’t know doc, I just got this percing headacre.”

  59. Avatar quatzl says:

    1. Why yes, I am the head of Vecna. Go ahead, try me on.

    2. Ok, ok, maybe I was a little too headstrong.

    {This probably has no chance, but it’s the first thing I thought of when looking at it…}
    “You’re probably wondering why I called this meeting…”

  68. Blue Blazer Blue Blazer says:

    1. You put your head in, you take your head out, you put your head in, and you shake it all about…
    2. Well, I’ve completely forgotten about the pain in my knee.
    3. Are you ready to admit defeat, inferior one?

  69. Avatar Niall Mor says:

  81. Avatar Skulan says:
