The Caption Contest Returns
« on: July 10, 2004, 01:47:28 PM »

Please forgive me for disappearing for so long and taking the caption contest with me! I assure you that I have returned and am ready to start this up again. There are many new members so allow me to restate the guidelines:

- I'll present you with one picture. It is your job to come up with an appropriate caption to go along with that picture.
-Captions are all to be submitted to me by PM. Do not post your captions in this thread
- 3 points will be awarded to each person who participates. You may send as many submissions as you'd like to but you will only receive 3 entry points (no matter how many you send).
- 12 points go to the winner, thus a total of 15.
- 7 points go to second place, a total of 10.
- I'll post everyone's submissions when I've finished judging.
- Entries are judged on creativity, grammar, and humor always helps ;)

So there you have it. I'm going to be away a bit so I can't set the date I'll judge them, but I'd like to have them all by Saturday July 17th. Without further rambling, here we have the picture:

Just to let you know, I'm extending the date until Thursday July 22nd. I won't have time to judge until then, and it gives time for a few more entries. Thanks to everyone who has already sent one in :)

This time the winner is Madeleine with:
Hermione looked down at Madam Trelawney's fingernails in disgust.  They showed unmistakable signs of a precision House Elf manicure.

Madeleine also sent in:
"Miss Granger, notes for todays exam?  I knew you would, but I always hope people will change their minds."
and
"Now, this is the 'Limp Fish' handshake.  Remember when you become Minister of Magic (due to a bloody revolt you inspire) you need a firm grasp.  You'll need to interlock the thumbs, Hermione, dear."
as well as
"You might want to see Madam Pomfrey about those warts, Hermione."
and
"Hermione, Tarot cards are NOT for playing poker with, but" *pulling King of Swords out of Hermione's sleeve* "even if they were, you're just asking for trouble by cheating!"
Ron and Harry, "HERMIONE!!"          

Thanks Mad, you're such an enthusiastic contributor  :roll:

In second place we have Susan -
......I see a girl with no career after this series is over......I see an autobiography entitled "I Am Not Hermione"..... I see many appearances on Larry King Live.......

Congrats to you both and thanks to everyone! I've awarded all the apporopriate points. I'll post the new pic later today. Other submissions were as follows:


Morgan-
 Professor Trelawney: According to my palm reading, you have a problem with someone or something.
Hermione (thinking): Yeah, it's you!
and
Professor Trelawny: Now, dearie, think of your biggest emotion.
Hermione (thinking): You are a big baboon. You are a big baboon. You are a big baboon...
Professor Trelawny (in a stance): I see that you are thinking you're sorry you don't have the Inner Eye.
Hermione (thinking): You really are a big baboon.

Kelpie -
Trelawny: Yes, you see my dear, your hands are not nearly as silky smooth as mine. I use Pert and Popular, and I seriously suggest it to you.
and
Trelawny: Well, I'm so sorry to inform you this my dear, but you died yesterday at 3:37pm

Angelina -
Trelawny: *in a mystical voice* I see... You have very soft hands, my dear.
Hermione: It's called moisturising.

Cho-
"Tsk tsk, Miss Granger.  If you had used Palmolive as I directed you, you wouldn't have these dishpan hands."

Heather -
A little conditioner goes a long way.  Just put a dime size in your palm and rub it to distribute it across your hand before applying it to your hair.
and
singing The itsy bitsy spider walked up the water spout.

Marold -
Hermione "She really needs to get her nails done"
Trelawny "She could do with a manicure"

Deedra -
Hermione: "Let go of my hand, you filthy witch! How dare you touch Perfection!"
Trelawny: "Oh, dear me. Your palm says you were born... perfect!"
Hermione: "Well, thanks for stating the obvious!"
