Oh Caption, My Caption

Morning Readers ,

     It's no secret I love a good caption. Actually, it's become a little bit of a problem. I think I'm at the point where I need to caption pictures, and in some capacity see it as my small duty to mankind.


I'm aware no one asked me to do it and there's a high probably it benefits absolutely no one, but, my boat, it floats it.

But who am I to hog all the captioning territory? I'll tell you who. No one. All right, someone fairly mediocre at putting completely inaccurate dialogue on old pictures, but it doesn't mean I'm greedy. It means I need attention and old TV stills tell me stories no one else sees. So that sounds healthy.

Anywho, today kicks of the very first There's More Where That Came From caption contest. Just throw your best caption as many times as you like in the comments, and I'll announce a new winner every month.

What's in it for you?

Nothing. Kidding. Wait, will you take nothing? I didn't think so because you're like me. OK, every month's winner gets a free paperback copy of At Least My Belly Hides My Cankles, and I'll even write out, in ink, the fact your a caption champion, on the inside.

I really wanted to give away a pony or ten thousand dollars every month, but we have a mortgage and the cars are always near death. You know how it is.


1.) Be awesome. But since you're here, I think we can check that off the list.

2.) Comment with as many captions as you like but try to keep it PG. This does not stand for "poached goats."

3.) Captions can be dialogue, commentary, headlines or whatever made you snort when you thought about it.

4.) No ripping on other people's captions. We love each other here. Hug a friend. Don't tear apart their carefully crafted imaginary headline, etc.

Oh my gosh, rules are exaughsting. That was four whole sentences. Ok, get to it. This month's winner announced on March 28th!

With a flourish and some jazz hands,
