How to Play:

It's simple, really. Look at the sports-related pictures above, and give us your funniest caption for any or all of them. You can write as many captions for each as you would like.

The contest runs daily, Monday-Thursday. Each day's contest will usually be posted by noon ET, and will usually end around 11 p.m. ET. If I decide that your caption is the funniest or most clever submitted for that picture, it will be declared a winner.

Winning captions will be announced when the contest ends. There will be one winner for each picture, and also one winner for the person who can string together the 5 best captions all with the same theme.

You will be awarded one point for each winning caption that you post. You will see a running tally on the scoreboard, which will be posted at the beginning and end of each day. At the end of each month a champion is declared, and we shower that user in praise and adulation! We add his screenname to the Wall-O-Fame, and then we start everyone's score back at 0.

This contest is just for fun, and there are no real prizes at this time. Who thinks they can make us laugh? :)

Picture #3 - and the riot ensues after KFC ran out of chicken and security had to be called

KFC Denies Riot After Oprah Coupon Fiasco


File: A two-piece meal with the new Kentucky Grilled Chicken is shown at a KFC location in Louisville, Ky.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. —  Customers at a New York City KFC hoping to redeem coupons for a free meal were peeved when the fast-food eatery's supply ran low, but Internet rumors of a riot were false, a KFC spokeswoman said Wednesday.

"Some customers were upset because they couldn't get their chicken, but there was no riot," said Laurie Schalow.

The coupons were available on for 24 hours beginning Tuesday after Oprah announced the meal promotion on her show. Each downloadable coupon can be redeemed for two pieces of grilled chicken, two individual sides and a biscuit.

On Thursday, KFC president Roger Eaton issued an apology for the coupon fiasco, but said the chicken giant will no longer accept the coupons.

"We would like to apologize to our customers who have been inconvenienced by the overwhelming response to our free Kentucky Grilled Chicken offer," Eaton said in a statement. "The lines of customers wanting to redeem their coupon have been out the door and around the block, so we're unable to redeem customer coupons at this time. Instead, we will be issuing rainchecks to customers which can be used at a later date. We're asking our customers to kindly visit their local KFC to find out more about rainchecks."

<!-- QUIGO --><!-- QUIGO -->KFC, owned by Louisville, Ky.-based Yum Brands Inc., introduced its new Kentucky Grilled Chicken about three weeks ago. The new menu item is being touted as lower in fat, calories and sodium than the traditional deep-fried chicken for which KFC is known the world over. It even has its own secret recipe, kept under lock and key near the original 11 herbs and spices recipe for fried chicken created by KFC founder Colonel Harland Sanders.

Schalow said the grilled chicken has been a huge success, and the combination of a bad economy and Oprah's popularity created a "perfect storm."

"We prepared for it," Schalow said, noting that a KFC restaurant can only serve so many people during the lunch and dinner hours. "We didn't prepare for this extreme."

But Schalow said customers have until May 19 to redeem their coupons, Mother's Day excluded, and she encouraged the public to return later.

A spokewoman for Oprah's Harpo Productions in Chicago said they are not aware of any problems with the coupons.

Schalow said KFC restaurants across the United States were bustling on Wednesday because of the coupon offer.

"A lot of restaurants experienced very, very heavy traffic with people trying to redeem the coupons." she said, though KFC headquarters did not hear of any other problems with customers other than the those at the New York City franchise. "All stores are very busy today, very long lines, that's what we're hearing."

Schalow said some KFC stores may have run out of some products, such as mashed potatoes and gravy or cole slaw, "but they are substituting as best they can."

#1)  So THAT'S where the old socks from the Boston Celtics and St. Louis Cardinals end up after being dropped off at Goodwill.

#1)  Have you ever noticed that the lean, shapely ladies posing for photographs these days all have love handles?  How does this happen?

#3)  The guys in the chicken suits have an unfair advantage once they pin their opponent to the mat.  See the massive beaks?  Great for a nice takedown with a poke in the eye.

#4)  "El Lunchero" (loosely translated as "the lunch wagon") displays his muscular physique for all to see.  The secret to his success?  Carnitas daily for breakfast, lunch and supper.

Photo 5)  Come on, guys.  What's the deal here?  I can understand saving dinero by using your sister's leftover bridesmaid dresses for the suits.  But motorcycle boots?  What were you thinking?

1)  Have you ever noticed that it's the girls who limber up?  The girls who stretch and remain flexible, looking good.  The guys just stand around, ogling, and looking goofy.  Why do you think that is?

2)  Seen here, wrestling sensation El Feo Loco seeks to get an autograph from one of his admirers.

3)  This bubbly chica is collecting evidence that the San Diego Chicken really does have familial roots across the border.  Pictured are his distant cousins El Pollo Loco and El Pollo Hermoso.

4)  Oh my!!  Who let the photographer into the women's dressing room?

5)  Tag team, baby!  The suits are a tribute to the Fantastic Four, but this Driveling Duo lacks the super powers to compete.
