Caption Contest 114 – Holy Horrific Holiday, Batman!

Your challenge this week is to come up with the best replacement dialog for this comics panel:

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!

    “I think my wheelchair’s broken”
    “So, if you’re Alternate-Santa, where’s Alternate-Krampus?”

  23. Avatar Rapthama says:

    1) So thats why you don’t eat Santa’s cookies.
    2) You just lost all of your remaining dignity, santa.
    3) Whatever you do, do NOT try to start dancing in front of us…!
    4) I take it that the gun from portal I wished for was too much to ask for?

    Nick, I swear to you, Robin and me have never seduced innocent children. Dr. Wertham’s book is full of lies.

  40. Avatar punkjay says:

    Okay Santa I think this gets you on your own naughty list!!!

  41. Avatar Joshua says:

    1) *Sigh* How much longer am I going to have to pay for
    “Batman & Robin”?

    2). Listen, whatever you do– don’t let Bane get his hands on you too!

    3). Claus, I need to get ahold of your surveillance equipment!
    Must be pretty sophisticated if you know when I’ve been bad or good!

  42. Avatar Joel says:

    “So, Santa’s finally bared his CLAWS!”

    “Watch it Kringle, you’d better untie me before I jingle YOUR bells!”

  43. Avatar Joel says:

  44. Avatar Joel says:

    “No, I said A new bat pole! BAT! BAT!”

  45. Avatar McKnight57 says:

    1) Bondage?! What happened to coal for boys on the naughty list?
    2) You realize, this puts you on MY naughty list right?
    3) And you wonder why I hate Christmas…
    4) Technically, you should be doing this to Chris O’Donnell and George Clooney.

  46. Avatar Novak says:

    I don’t care if everyone asked for this, for christmas. Not even YOU can stop The Great Adam West.

    3) Please, in the name of all things hetero, be Cat Woman under that beard.
    4) OH NO! Not Detroit!
    5) …Would it make any difference if I said I was Jewish?

  51. Avatar Gregg says:

    Robin’s safe word is “Mxyzptlk” — and make sure he says it exactly right or it doesn’t count! Heh heh…

  52. 1. “You know what ol’ Jack Burton always says at a time like this?”

    2. Ow! Pineapple… Pineapple!!!

    3. Quite the hard sell for a timeshare, don’t ya think?

    4. This really lacks the.. je ne sais quoi… of “Batman Forever.”

    5. Ha ha ha! You forgot to gag me! Ha ha ha… I’m just gonna keep on talking.

  53. Avatar DubbleYoo says:

    1. Just to be clear… whose Christmas wish is this?
    2. Clark put you up to this, didn’t he.
    3. If you’re not Catwoman in disguise, I’m going to be very disappointed.
    4. Why does Robin always get tied up better than me?
    5. And this, Robin, is why I always make you go to bed early on Christmas Eve.

  54. Avatar Joel says:

    “I REALLY hope that’s a candy cane in your pocket……”

  55. Avatar TheNate says:

    “Well, we usually call it a Batagag, but you’re the boss.”

  57. Avatar skullcraze says:

  58. Avatar deathstroke says:

    Sure you can tie me up, but tying up a cripple…that low.

  59. Avatar deathstroke says:

    Sure you can tie me up, but tying up a cripple…thats low

  60. Avatar Myro says:

    2. “You’re a monster! Forcing us to watch those Schumacher movies!”

  61. Avatar Kountkill says:

    “Santa, you did get my letter!”

  62. Avatar Dave the Orc says:

    Darn it Robin, I told you to make sure you left him some cookies and milk!

  63. Avatar X-stacy says:

    I guess Bondage Santa doesn’t really do it for me. Who knew?

  64. Avatar pyrodude760 says:

    a little early for christmas arnt you

  65. Avatar Dudemeister says:

    1. When Little Jimmy said he wanted Batman and Robin for Christmas, I’m pretty sure he meant action figures.

    2. You’ve GOT to be kidding me. Hey Santa, what I really want for Christmas is for the writers to quit embarrassing me with stuff like this. And how about a pair of slacks for my ward here. It’s bad enough DC has a 12 year old boy tag along with me wherever I go, but at least let him wear some pants.

    3. “Who wears boots and a suit of red? Santa wears boots and a suit of red. Who saves Batman from being dead, dead, dead? …”

  66. alphaalpharomeo alphaalpharomeo says:

    1) I’m the only one who can gag my “Toy Wonder”

    2)And once you finish wrapping us up, you can deliver us back to Gothom for the people to unwrap.

    3)Santa, we weren’t bad this year, we only killed 13 petty criminals

    4)Can you put something jolly in my mouth Santa?

    5)Who put you up to this, Santa? It was the Joker right? That guy’s a hute. I remember this one time….

  67. Avatar X-stacy says:

    Oh, gosh, this is embarrassing. I got him the exact same thing!

  68. Avatar Meficrow says:

    Ok I don’t think I have something in my bell for this situacion

  69. Avatar Twiggyseed says:

    1. Robin’s on the naughty list, but I’m not right?

    2. Oh no! I didn’t bring my Anti-Santa Rapist Spray!

    3. Hey! Aren’t you Santa#1225 in “Jingle All The Way”? I love that movie!

    4. Make sure that gags tight. He always manages to get it off…

    5. Say mister, you look really familiar…

  70. Avatar TheAmazingFrank7 says:

    My head’s itchy, do you mind scratching it?

  71. Avatar TheAmazingFrank7 says:

    I’m sorry! I didn’t ask adam west to play a really camp Batman!
