Caption Contest 60 Winner!

I am happy to announce that the winner of Caption Contest 60 is ... Niall Mor!

contest60-winner

The other entries that I thought were particularly good this week were:

  • Hakoon: Ok, ok, I’m sorry. You have a lovely tan.
  • Hammerknight: “I do”
  • Ben Trafford: “Jocasta? But I thought you were a -good- guy?!”
  • Danny Beaty: My head isn’t the only thing she shaved!
  • marx: I believe you about the dolphins, but really, I’ve NEVER been able to see those 3-D posters, no matter how I focus.

Those were all original and good takes that I'd not have thought of, so hats off to you guys. Extra bonus points (not currently redeemable for anything) go to Ben Trafford for "Best Comic Book In-Joke". I also really liked Halloween Jack's version of the lubricant joke, but didn't think it was appropriate for the space. Funny, though!

As the winner, Niall gets to pick either any one item or a caricature of his face to be part of HeroMachine 3's final release, so congratulations to him!

I'll also take this opportunity to note that if there's a pistol you really really wanted to go in (say, the Desert Eagle, which I still don't see making a separate slot for since there's something very very close already), winning a contest is the best way to go. So start thinkin'!

Thanks to all our entrants, and good luck with the next one, which should be posted shortly.

  1. gratz to all who won

  2. Omigosh, I won! I won :::blows kisses to all the other contestants::::

    Thanks, Jeff! I’ll have to think about my prize a little.

  3. No problem Niall, take your time. And solicit bribes! Who knows what you can lure the “I want my pistol!!” crowd into donating to a worthy cause?!

  4. congratulations everyone, I just thought of one just for fun.
    This just goes to show, why you should not recycle!!!

  5. Congrats Niall Mor

  6. “I want my pistol!!” Huh.

    I don’t believe I was that demanding Jeff lol. Just asking for them. If you don’t feel it’s necessary to add them, I’m cool with that. I’ll just set my sights on one of the contests 🙂

    Speaking of which, Congrats Niall

  7. I’m just pokin’ fun Tim, hope that didn’t come off as negative as it seemed. I like strong advocates! I mostly wanted you to make the case on why it’s necessary, I honestly don’t know enough about the different ones to tell which would be valuable adds and which would be minor tweaks that most people wouldn’t notice.

    But yeah, do definitely at least go for a contest win, I think that would be awesome! I’m still open to the gun adds as well, but I need a case to be made for it in the face of my ignorance, given that there are so many items already in the set.

  8. Oh, and I definitely didn’t think you were too demanding, at all. I like it!

  9. Alright awesome! That’s a load off my mind lol. On the internet, it’s a little hard to tell if someone is joking or being serious. No problem 🙂

    I’m just a huge fan of firearms and I just like to see specific models make it in 🙂

    For instance, The .50 Caliber Smith and Wesson Model 500 is the strongest handgun currently in production. So I would think having a strong weapon like that in HM3 would be great for everyone.

    Here it is again:

    I’ve seen this gun completely splatter a watermelon to pieces lol.

  10. As for the Beretta 92FS, the only case I can make for it that it is one of my personal favorite firearms and I do believe the US Army is still using these, but I’m not sure if that’s convincing enough though. I’ll probably go for a contest for this one.

  11. wtg, Niall Mor!! Every aspiring superhero needs an arch-nemesis to mess with their head! Like bowling! Good job!
