Even newer-er caption contest
« on: June 14, 2005, 02:25:24 PM »

 Rules: (Please read all the rules before submitting your caption)
- 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, (probably on Monday)
- Entries are judged on creativity, grammar, and humor

This contest will close on Sunday, June 19th at 11:59 pm, PST. (Which is my time zone, and it's just less effort for me to think in those terms.)

My current submissions is, "Oh, drats, that moving picture's run off again...." :D

After some poking, it might just be that either photobucket is down, or my server just can't access it. If it doesn't come back up in a bit, Shelly, could you put the picture in the GrandPre gallery? We should be able to link to it from there.

Oh, look, there it is. :)

Is it showing up OK now? I haven't noticed it gone yet, but if you want, I can upload it to the gallery.

Although, I'm a little late, aren't I, since there's only one day and four minutes until the contest ends. ;D

Get those submissions in, people! I have three so far.

Kudos to everyone, I had to make some very difficult decisions. Thank you for participating, and either Ping or I will likely start a new competition shortly.
