Caption Contest 105: ROM Com

With hearty thanks once again to Glenn3's "Say What? Pictures", your challenge this week is to come up with the best replacement dialog for this comics panel:

I think her title is perfect -- "ROM com". Too funny!

The best entry (as judged by yours truly) wins the author's choice of either any item they like or any portrait to be included in HeroMachine 3′s final release, or a custom black and white “Sketch of the Day” style illustration (you pick the subject, I draw it however I like).

All entries must be left as a comment (or comments) to this post. Keep ‘em clean (appropriate for a late-night broadcast TV show), but most importantly, keep ‘em funny!

This week we have a cap of no more than five (5) entries per person, so make 'em your best!

  92. Doornik1142 says:

    I’m sorry, I can’t think of a caption because I’m too distracted by that ridiculous sound effect.

    “Kavroom”? Really? Why didn’t they use something like “crash!” or “smash!” for their sound effect? Are those words copyrighted or something? What is it with comic companies and their fucking insane made-up onomatopoeias?

  93. Sean From Edwards says:

    Shalom Bitches!!!

  94. Frevoli says:

    I object! The bride is a cyclon!

    Pastafanarianism RULES!

  110. spidercow2010 says:

    Off-topic @tarkabarka: I’m not trying to mock your English, I swear, and there’s no denying you speak at least one more language than I do, but ‘probe’ is probably not the word you want here. Probe is something usually associated with space- or deep-sea-exploratory mechanisms, or proctologists, or alien abductors, so it carries a connotation I’m guessing you didn’t intend. More to the point, I think, would have been “I’ll make an attempt” or “I’ll give it a try” or “take a shot (or a stab) at it.” Again, I’m making no judgment here; English is a b!t@h.

  111. spidercow2010 says:

    “I’m BACK! It’s ROBO-JESUS, you SINNERS!”

  112. Joachim de Ravenbel says:

  114. jamesinchains says:


  115. Tarkabarka says:

    Spidercow2010 (110)

    Thank you Spidercow, you are absolutely right.

    Attempt = Próba

    – Why i think probe similar with próba, grrr i’m now very angry with myself. If i don’t know a word why i don’t look to it what it means.

    And the correct words.
    I don’t think my english good enough for this but i will give myself a chance , and i will make an attempt.

    További jó kép felírat versenyt mindenkinek.

    “Knock- knock- knockin’ on Heaven’s door!”

  131. Ethan Shuster says:

    “Judo CHOP!”

  132. CPrime says:

    Ok, there’s an awful lot of these and after weeding out all the ones that have been repeated over and over again (i.e., objections to a wedding, etc.) and of course, my own, to avoid accusations of bias, if I had to pick my favorites so far:

    (Giving credit to the first one to post the line)

    Wulf (9): “Come with me if you want to live.”
    Martian Blue (25): “The cake is a lie!”
    Frankie (39): “I’m here to kick ass and chew Kevlar. And I’m all out of Kevlar.”
    Rapthama (42): “There you are Waldo!” (I love a good Waldo reference)
    Blue Blazer (46): “You wore WHITE, Amy? That’s a joke!”
    Anthony Z (70): “Kneel before ZOD!”
    Sean Murphy (75): “ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO MEEEEE!!!”
    John (78): “BOOM goes the Spaceknight.”
    Jester (91): “Doors? Where we’re going, we don’t need doors.” (You forgot to leave a dramatic pause before the last “doors”)
    Jessica (99): “Jocasta, what the HELL is going on here?”

    Others are really good too, but those are the five funniest and most original. Apart from mine, of course. 😛 Just kidding. But of course, my opinion means nothing.

  133. Reece says:

    1)Oh Yeah, always wanted to say that,
    2)I just won bingo
    3)This is a raid
    4)He’s Not Dead Yet
    5)Any one have a can opener, i’ve been stuck in here for a week and it smells like pee

  134. Jessica says:

    @CPrime: Thanks! I reached deep for that one. Couldn’t remember the name of Ultron’s bride so I had to Wikipedia it.

  135. Novak says:
