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? :)

and....well....his dog but we don't have to go there. You had better not lay a hand on Mr. Spankers! (Yes, I actually have a dog named Mr. Spankers, but he goes by Spanky. And my wife named him. And he's a bassett hound. And he rules.) Speaking of which, I've been meaning to change my avatar... hmm.

And as far as the number of good comments goes... I usually end up with between 3 and 8 finalists for each pic. Drives me crazy deciding.

Hey, thanks for the mention Buc.  This contest is so much fun, it's worth incurring the wrath of the Mrs. for doing this around dinner on days when they shut off the internet access at work.  I'll have to start bringing the laptop.

The nice thing about the tough competition, the posts are getting downright hiliarious.  Points are precious and when you score one, you know you thought of something outstanding.  Can't wait for Monday/

4) Joe knows that I love girls from Holland like ktopp loves oil wrestling, he's trying to distract me so we can get some new blood as champion in 2009.
5) Joe knows that ktopp loves sumo like ktopp loves oil wrestling, he's trying to distract him so the new blood as champion in 2009 isn't him.
And here I am mentioned in the group post for a 2nd day in a row, and yesterday was all about me. I should get points from Gator-man and Kmvenne but, alas, I get nothing to show for it....again. I'm beginning to think maybe I shouldn't have slept with Joe's wife, sister, neighbor, neighbor's sister, 3 of his aunts, and....well....his dog but we don't have to go there. I'm glad I could be there for you guys....

Honorable mention for tonight would have to go to D2Moo for the Bible set, that one was very well tailored to the pictures. (That OK, Gator? Wink )Sweet.  I was just so impressed with everybody's work yesterday that it seemed some were deserved.  I think yesterday you must have eliminated about 10 posts that would have received points almost any other day.  The room's getting tough.

1) The athletic grace and subtle strength of these gymnasts was evident, but the musical choice of "Pour Some Sugar on Me" by Def Leppard really took away from the artistic value of the routine.

Big John Studd
Picture # 2 - High Five!  The Olympic Synchronized swinning team of Kazakhstan pay tribute to the birds of their country....Very Nice!

Beevillian
3)  Little Pete did some clever manipulation since he wasn't tall enough to ride the roller coaster.

4) Coach: No, you nitwits!  I told you to get qualified for the next event, not koala-fied!

Train Derailer
5)  From top to bottom:Line 1 - Sumo wrestlersLine 2 - Entrance line to Jenny Craig clinicLine 3 - Sumo wrestlersLine 4 - White dudes with a diaper fetish



kmvenne
Why did Joe pick these pictures?

1) FBI told Joe he had to get rid of all the pictures like this from his computer. Joe thought if he uploads them here, they leave his hard drive.
2) Joe was just going to post some of his ASCII porn, but figured we'd perfer something with colors.
3) This was actually his senior yearbook picture. His quote: Genius and virtue are to be more often found clothed in gray than in peacock bright. It's 50/50 if he knows that he called himself dumb by saying that.
4) Joe knows that I love girls from Holland like ktopp loves oil wrestling, he's trying to distract me so we can get some new blood as champion in 2009.

That's what makes this contest good. You can score points for anything from dong jokes to a joke about rocket science (I may have to try this next week). Sometimes the efforts of mine I'm not as proud of get points and some of my favorite entries sometimes go unnoticed, but in the end you tend to pick out 6 good entries, and nobody knows what buttons to push to get easy points. Sweet, man. Really, that's kinda exactly what I'm going for. Smile

Freakin hillarious, five time champ.  I'm wondering how many of us are old enough to know what ASCII is.  I still remember a humorous little ditty I learned back in the days of WWIV BBSes.  ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI.

dang, now i'm getting flashbacks from the old burroughs mainframe.... Frown
