I think Caption Contest 106 was the most difficult one to date, generating the fewest entries in a long, long time and presenting major challenges. Kudos therefore to the following four folks who managed to build in a funny interim thought between the two existing ones!
- Loki: Everyone thinks I’m a dick because I’m so awesome…
1. “People need to learn to never, ever kneel before Zod.”
2. “I told DC that rebooting again would be a bad idea.”
- Skybandit: Teaching Luthor and Brainiac to play World of Warcraft has left me with nothing to do but reporting!
- Mr.MikeK: Lois kicked me out when I proved her wrong again.
- spidercow2010: I’ve been appointed SuperPope!
I liked Loki's for the irony, Myro's for the topical reference and for anything referencing "kneel before Zod", Skybandit's because I'm about to restart my WoW account here in a few days, Mr.MikeK's prescient analysis of male-female relationships, and spidercow2010's excellent referral to one of the great Super Dickery moments of all time.
But I have to choose just one as the ultimate winner, and for that I have to go with the one I thought was the cleverest leveraging of the two existing balloons, in a way that made me laugh. Namely, Loki!
Congratulations to Loki -- just let me know what you'd like for your prize either in comments or via email, Loki, and I'll get it on the list.
Thanks to everyone who entered, and next time we'll do something that's a little more universal, promise!
Congrats, Loki. This was a hard one, and I think it’s the first one that I didn’t enter (I literally could think of nothing to go with those other two bubbles)…
Congrats Loki. Those were some funny captions. And well done to everyone else for being able to come up with some good stuff for this.
Strangely, I found this one a pretty easy one come up with entries for.
Oh my fracking god. I’ve done it! After two long years I’ve done it again! I never thought it would happen. So I’m at a bit of a loss at what I want…Any ideas everybody?
Well, Loki, Here’s an idea: http://www.heromachine.com/2011/08/30/replacement-prize-2-results/
Loki: Well played, sir. Or madam. Might I suggest the dark alley listed above?
I think (he said, donning the action togs of Captain Obvious) that the challenge of this CC was coming up with something that not only fit betwixt the other two panels but was also funny. I mean, a lot of entries were funny but barely referenced the context, and, well, vice versa. Kudos to all who thwacked their funnybones against this one.
And by the way, Loki, I think you’re a dick because you’re so awesome.
Every time I read it I can’t help but laugh, Good Job!
