Caption Contest 108 Winners

We had a lot of great entries for Caption Contest 108 (Talk Like a Pirate Day). As usual, I've gone through and picked out the ones I thought were the funniest for your enjoyment:

  • Dan Gonzalez: Whaddaya mean the Village People auditions were yesterday!?!
  • alphaalpharomeo: I have Davey Jones Locket
  • Rick: Raid! Pilfer! Makeover!
  • ams: All you can eat shrimp? Set sail to the Red Lobster, maties!!
  • Frevoli: Hand over the Black Pearl! It’d go great with my white gold earring
  • Frevoli: All me movies be rated arrrrrh!
  • Big Mac: I’ll be taking your treasure AND your booty, YARRGH!
  • Vampyrist: Flower Power, bitches.
  • The Atomic Punk: Shiver me timbers and minnie me pearls!
  • Knighthawk: I like big boats and I can not lie!
  • Rendu: Hey, everybody! It’s ‘Talk Like An Office Worker Day’ Let’s all enjoy free donuts in the break room!
  • Galactic Ketchup: Tis I, Captain John Swallow!
  • Sutter_Kaine: Arr! I be barred from coming within 20,000 leagues of an elementary school!

Out of those very strong contenders, I had to pick just one to be the overall winner. It was a tough call, but ultimately I went with ... Knighthawk!

Rendu was a razor-close finisher as well, but I just couldn't get the dialog to fit in the balloon without looking really tight.

Congratulations to Knighthawk and all the other Finalists!

  3. Congrats, Knighthawk. I can actually hear a pirate singing that. I’ll try it at work. Freak out my co-workers.

    @Jeff: Thanks for the honorable mention. Though I doubt anyone under 35 gets the reference to “Minnie Pearl.” ;9

    I’ve got all but the last part of the song…

    I like big boats and I can not lie
    you other sailors cant deny
    When she pulls it into port
    And has to stop it up short
    You Load guns
    Wanna haul up tough
    Cuz you notice that hull was stuffed
    Deep in the sea she’s wearing
    I’m gaffed and I can’t stop staring
    Oh, baby I wanna hard board ya
    And take your plunder
    My shipmates tried to warn me
    But that aft you got
    Make Me so horney
    Ooh, hull of smooth sleet
    You say you wanna get in my fleet
    Well use me, use me, cuz you aint that average booty

    I’ve seen them Flaggi’
    To hell with demandin’
    She’s slack, block and tack, smooth like a turtle back

    I’m tired of bardic sings
    Saying thin keel are the thing
    Take the average pi-rat and ask him that
    She gotta pack much sack

    So captains (yeah) captains (yeah)
    Has your beauty got the boat (hell yeah)
    Well sail it, sail it, sail it, sail it, sail that healthy boat
    Baby got Sack

    I like’em round and low
    And when I’m giving a show
    I just can’t help myself
    I’m actin like an admiral
    Now here’s my vandal

    I wanna splash your prow
    And UH, Fire twice UH UH
    I aint talkin bout schooners
    Cuz dutch hips were made for toys
    I wannem real thick and heavy
    So find that sloop-of-war
    Captains to give what for
    Beggin for a piece of that score
