Create The Caption #312

Tuesday, November 18, 2008

(Usually) Everyday I'll throw out a photo, you provide the caption, and then hilarity ensues. I'm also adding a handful of links at the bottom of the page that you should check out each day.

Yesterday's Winners....


"Hey wait a minute! I'm a very versatile actor. I was a cop in The Longest Yard remake. In Chuck & Larry I was a cop and in The House Bunny I was a ....WTF where is my agent?"- Jeremy

"BD: 5' 9". 120.
DP: Ding!"
- Mal

"DP: "So how did you and Andy first meet?"
BD: "After his 6th consecutive 2nd round grand slam loss I asked him if he wanted to go shopping first and then have sex. He got so excited when we got to the GAP that we spent 4 hours trying everything on and forgot about the rest of the evening."
- Yanksfan12

"Hook a few electrodes up to Keith Olbermann, grab some cards with a couple of wavy lines, and you've got yourself the beginning of Ghostbusters here."- Anon

"DP: "Remember that time you were in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition?
BD: "Yes, what about it?"
DP: "Yeah....that was awesome"
- Michael

And your winner of a copy of EA's NCAA '09 is (drumroll)........

"C'mon Brooklyn, they're not even all that funny. Most of these AA caption contest winners are just recycled Saved by the Bell quotes anyway."- Lammy742

We had almost 100 entries, and almost all of them were hilarious. Lammy decided to tap into my self-deprecating side, and came out victorious. Don't fret though my commenting friends....you still have four more chances! Scroll down for shot #2!!!
_______________________________________

Okay folks it's time! We're raising the stakes, and for this week and this week only, you will be playing for a copy of EA Sports' NCAA 2009. The rules are simple....you have to submit your caption with a registered blogger profile, have an email address linked within said profile, and you have to be funnier than everyone else (sorry Anons, you won't win if you don't register). If all of the above holds true, I'll get your information, and EA will send you the game on either PS3 or XBOX in the next week or so. It's that easy!

NCAA Basketball '09 (EA Sports)

Are you funny enough to create a caption for this photo of Magic Johnson at a release for his new book "32 Ways to be a Champion in Business" at the NBA Store in New York City?

Audience Member: "Um, Mr. Johnson, I'm not much of a reader, I was wondering if there would be an audio book, and could you condense to an hour?"
Magic: "Yes, there will be a one hour audio book, the title is still in the works."
Audience Member: "How about calling it the Magic Hour?"
Magic: "The Magic Hour, what a great name. Hmm, I remember a talk show called that?"
Audience Member: "Yes, you were in it, it is a shame that Sheila E was the show's downfall."
Magic: "Aww, damn, I remember. That was gonna be number 33."

Now trade in your wingtips for some Velcro New Balances and get back to work you laceless champion."

So I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt. Which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. Gimme five bees for a quarter, you'd say. Now where was I... oh yeah. The important thing was that I had an onion tied to my belt, which was the style at the time. You couldn't get white onions, because of the war.
