Caption Contest 98 Winners!

Many thanks to everyone who entered Caption Contest 98! There were a ton of really funny entries this week, as you can see from the large number of Finalists. Maybe it was how silly the panel was:

Without further ado, here are the aforementioned Finalists!

  • eric ross burton: hmmmm … something feels off did i put my underwear on before or after my leotard this time
  • Patrick: “Grim crusader of the night? Nailed it!”
  • Gargoyle323: ”Talk to the hand!”
  • Mr.MikeK: I’m so glad I hired Rainbow Boy to make my suit!
  • Vaadren: I’m a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle, here is my spout.
  • Frevoli: My flight powers are bound to start working now
  • Bud: Look out villains, best not mess with me. I’m positively … FOXY!
  • nakiato: the moon is so close i could almost touch it with my tiny hands.
  • Myro: “Look who we’ve got our Hanes on now!”
  • Myro: “Nothing comes between me and my BVDs. Except for my costume.”
  • Whit: I don’t care if the name “Captain Underpants” is taken!
  • The Atomic Punk: Soak it in, Russian mail-order brides. Daddy’s here.
  • The The Atomic Punk: Hey, Alpha Centauri! I’m crushing your head!
  • von Bek: If only I could find my glasses. Now where’s that light switch… Why’s it got windy?
  • X-stacy: I AM Victoria’s Secret.
  • Danny Beaty: Maybe this isn’t the best pose for brooding.

Phew! You can see I’d have a tough time choosing just one winner, but luckily for you I gutted up. Which means your winner is … Myro!

Shockingly (well, at least to me), this is Myro’s first win outside of a Pop Quiz despite his excellent character design skills and good humor. It’s a weird thing, this subjective judging …

Anyway, congratulations to him and to all of our Finalists, and again, a hearty thanks to all the great entries.

    Funny stuff, folks! I admire many people’s restraint at not going with the obvious gay jokes. :)

  2. I second that! Thank goodness we didn’t just devolve into utter tastelessness.

  3. Me, Myself & I

    Way to go Myro!

  4. Congrats Myro! Funny stuff by everyone!

  5. Danny Beaty

    Congrats Myro!

  6. Yeah, congrats…wait, whaaaaa?
    I was not expecting this. There were a couple captions I thought were funnier than mine, and I wasn’t even sure I’d enter this contest, given that I had no ideas after reading all the entries on the first day.
    Thanks Jeff, and good effort everyone! I’ve got a few ideas kicking around, but I should have it narrowed down and get a few sample pictures of what I want within a day or two. I’ll e-mail you later, Jeff.

  7. @Myro: Congratulations!

    I’m flattered for being nominated. But two noms?!? If only for that third… nom nom nom!

  8. Myro: Congratulations! Yes, weird this is your first win.

    And I got an honourable mention! Feeling like I’m getting my mojo back…
