Caption Contest #96

Ok guys, time for another caption contest, where you have to come with the funniest replacement dialogue for a random comic panel of my choosing. This week you have to replace the dialogue for this panel:

Everyone can have a maximum of 3 entries, entries must be in by next Wednesday (June 21th) and All Entries Must Be PG-13.

Character Design Challenge #326 – RPG Character Classes: Round 4 – Clerics

Time for Round 4! Your CDC is to create a member of the Cleric Class. This is the group that features medics, priests and witchdoctors among others. And yes...you can choose to create a character that blends the cleric with another character class: the Templar and Caster for example.

Once again, a brief written description of the world of your RPG is an entry requirement.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. Please keep all submissions PG13. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warning. Only post characters that have been created solely using Hero Machine, and that you know for certain have never been entered in a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShackPhotoBucket, or whatever);

  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.

Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this).

This contest will close on Sunday, June 18th at 9:00am Eastern.

Franklin: When I signed up for Aperture’s child testing program, I just wanted to make faces at the cameras.

Val: There he goes again…

HerrD

Franklin: We’re gonna play basketball, right? That’s what the numbers are for?

Val: I’m not playing ‘skins,’ Franklin.

CantDraw

Franklin: I can change reality.

Val: I wish you’d change your face.

Treasure Hunter

Franklin: Do you think I’ll get my own action figure line?

Val: That would give my dog something new to play with.

AMS

Franklin: And now, I will do my next impression….

Val: If I was old enough to vote, this wouldn’t have happened….

But, in time honoured tradition, there can only be one winner and that winner is....
