Newer Caption Contest
« on: June 04, 2005, 10:04:47 AM »

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 11th at 11:59 pm, EDT. (Which SHOULD be board time, but you know how that's been going!)

Hummm... I'm still trying to think of an entry, but I thought you might like to know, Ping, that the entry in the news box for the newer caption contest is mispelled. It currently reads "Caption Context," IIRC.

That's a tough picture, too. Hopefully I'll think of something before the deadline. *meep*

Oooh, thanks for pointing that out! Have five points. :)

As for entries, remember, you get points for even trying, so even if it's not really funny, you still get the points. But I'm sure you'll be able to think of something!

Welcome to Hogsmeade, Kaz!  I'm Cho, one of the Gryffindor prefects.  I just wanted to make sure that you saw that entries to the caption contest should be sent to Ping by personal mail (PM).  You can do that by clicking on Ping's name, and then clicking on the link that says "Send this person a private message."

Hi Kaz!  Nice to meet you, as you can see I'm Christine.  Another little tidbit of info I'd thought I'd shoot your way is that you'll probably want to get sorted into a house.  Maybe you already have, since I know it takes a day or two for it to show up in your user info, but if you haven't there's a link at the top of every page.  It's nice to be in a house because then you can participate in the house cup and hang out in your house common room.

And now, the winners.... *drumroll*

First place

Christine:  Somewhere there's a very worn out toaster in the bottom of a bathtub.

Second place

Cho:  "You do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around, that's what it's all about!"

It's very important to not read these sorts of things at work, or your co-workers wonder what you're cackling about. :D

Also participating:

Angelina:  Prof. Trelawney: Look into my eyes, look into my eyes, not around the eyes, into the eyes. Look into my eyes!

Dumbldor:  Proffesor trellanway:The dark lord will rise to eat corn bread and flee the candy shop!
The class:oh no!!!

Kaz:  God I wishe Id stuck to contact lenses

[Edit] I can't seem to add Kaz and Dumbldor to the house cup like I should be able to. So know that I will award your points as soon as I figure out why the darned hour glasses aren't working. [/edit]

One final note--I was able to get the house cup to work again (silly added field), so both of you should have your points now.
