Caption Contest 118: Going to the dogs

Your challenge this week is to come up with the best replacement dialog for this comics panel (which comes to us courtesy of the always awesome Glenn3's "Say What?" PhotoBucket site):

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!

No limit to entries, but please, self-edit and only put up ones you genuinely think are funny!

  37. Jeff Hebert says:

    STaudy, it’s pretty simple.

    First, use the Export button in HM3 to get a JPG or PNG of your character. Make sure to name it something sensible, preferably .jpg/png. So something like STaudy-SuperSandwich.jpg.

    Second, upload it to a file sharing site like,, Facebook, or even the forums here on this site. They usually have a “Direct Link” or “Share This Photo” box with a link in it — copy that.

    Finally, make a comment on the contest post with that link and your character name in it.

    If you just want to share something you made in general without being part of a contest, you still need to post it to a sharing site like in the first two steps, but you could then put it on the UGO Forums or here on these forums or on the HeroMachine Facebook page.
