Caption Contest: The Winner!

It was '80s heaven on Tuesday as 340+ people tried to explain what was happening in a backyard with some very primitive Walkie Talkies. There were so many hilarious captions it was difficult to choose a winner.

So I started with the honorable mentions:

Munk!
"We represent the Walkie-Talk Guild..."

Tucker!
"The range of early walkie-talkies was somewhat limited."

LizzieFriend!
"The '80s: It was the best of times, it was the worst of fashion crimes."

Tana Adams!
"The backseat boys."

M.R.!
"But Mom, we just saved the planet."

But in the end, there could be only one winner....

CONGRATULATIONS to Curt!!

Our demands are simple. No more asparagus, bed time gets moved back to 9pm, and little Johnny here needs some gold chains for his track suit. You have 30 minutes or I push this button, and boom goes the dynamite.


Bonus points for thinking Little Nathan (that's me in the blue track suit) needed some gold chains to complete his incredible ensemble (and his Wii remote FROM THE FUTURE).

Thanks so much to everyone for entering, and Curt, please contact me for your prize!!

Gotta give it up for Curt--"little Johnny here needs some gold chains for his track suit" sealed it for me.

And way to rock the Sue Sylvester, Nathan.

Jenny said...

Now we just need to photoshop in some bling and a Wii remote. =)

Congrats to Curt!

Nathan, what are those holes on the photo?

LizzieFriend said...

Congrats, Curt! Loved yours--that outfit really is screaming for some gold chains. And maybe a gut, a hairy chest and a receding (but heavily gelled, of course) hairline.

Nathan Bransford said...

anon-

Thumbtack holes.

Congratulations, Curt! The honorable mentions were great, too. I especially liked Munk's and Tucker's.

Munk said...

Wunderbar.

D.G. Hudson said...

Congrats to Curt and the Honorable mentions!

I see Curt has experience in negotiations. Ask for as much as you can get and see what falls out. . .

BTW - wondered if there was any conscensus on the Wednesday question?(about discussing your story idea?)

Ted Cross said...

Not bad! I think I'd have gone simpler with something like, "No more asparagus or the blondies get it!"

Kristi Helvig said...

Hilarious caption! Thanks for a fun contest.

Mira said...

Lol - great choice! Nice work, Curt, very funny.

So many of the captions were laugh out loud funny, and there was one that was scary and gave me chills - by Nettie? - anyway, extremely impressive caption talent on this here blog.

Totally fun contest. And you know, Nathan, it's never too late for some gold chains.

I was going to ask which one was you, thanks for clearing that up Nathan. I can't believe I missed the original post!

Also, is that a storm trooper action figure in your hand, or what?

Congrats! A most deserving win. Very funny.

I don't visit the blog in a while and I miss a contest....

Doubtless to be filed under too-little-too-late, here is my belated entry:

"Mom, the 80's just called and they want their track suit back. What, we're living in the 80's? Damn!"

Allen B. Ogey said...

Congrats to the winner, by the way.

These were awesome! I loved reading through them and laughed until I had tears in my eyes.

Also Nathan, it looks like you're holding a pez dispenser to me. Maybe a Storm Trooper pez dispenser?

Thumbtack holes, Nathan? Not small caliber bullet holes? I mean, the blond hairdo wasn't THAT bad.

Congratulations to Curt and all honorable mentions!
