New Caption Contest
« on: May 26, 2005, 12:46:43 PM »

Since I'm enjoying looking for images to iconify, I thought I'd put up a picture and run a caption contest, using PG's rules.

Rules:
- 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

This contest will close on June 3rd at 11:59 pm, EDT. (Which SHOULD be board time, but you know how that's been going!)

I sent one in for the heck of it.  I think it's probably kind of dumb, but oh well.  ;D

So far it's the only one I've gotten, so you might win by default. ;)

Hmmm...  It surprises me that no one else has sent one in, especially with it being in the news box.  But I guess you never know!

Two more days, and I only have two submissions! C'mon, folks, even if they're bad, you still get participation points!

I got two more caps! Yay! Tomorrow is the deadline, so everyone else (and those who want to submit more than one) get your captions in!

We had four entrants, each with one caption each. Thanks to everyone that participated! The winner gets 15 points, second place gets 10, and all other participants get 3 points.

So, without further ado, the runners-up

dumbldor
 ron:well what do you think
harry:great you
ron:great
harry and ron together:lets go then

Angelina Tonks
Harry: I'm wearing a suit.
Ron: And I'm wearing some kind of lacey contraption designed to embarass me! Get it off me! GET IT OFF ME!

Second place

Christine
Ron: "Harry, do you reckon mum was just looking for a new poodle that was already house-trained?"

The winner is:

SeaShelly3
Ron: "When I said 'follow the butterflies,' that didn't mean I wanted Mum to glue them all over my robes."
