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? :)

4. And this is what happens to a race car when it encounters a IED. That is why we don't do test runs through downtown Baghdad.

2. Mr. Vice-President, having your picture taken with me will boost YOUR popularity.

3. And this is why soccer still has problems gaining acceptance in America.

4. I hope this isn't what they mean by Army Strong?

5. I was strolling through the park one day...

There were a TON of great entries for No. 4 and the theme... I'm thinking this should be another tightly contested month. Laughing


Manelvagor
1.) - In a rare display of honesty, too often missing from our modern sports scene, the girl holding the sign has the courage (liquid?) to basically trash her OWN hair style.

River_Rat
2.  The Phillies management had hired Joe Bidden to stand near the Yankee's on deck circle to explain the benifits of government health care as they warmed up.  That along with Joe's death grip politician handshake caused 8 players to be called out for failing to appear at the plate.

BuccinGator
3) (In psuedo-Godzilla style where the lips don't match the words) "Our crane style shall defeat your tiger style."

NFL-Solomon
4.) There! Now do you see why we don't sometimes turn right?

River_Rat
5.  From this photo of the 1947 Jerusalem mini marathon, Palestinian runner Nosir Arafat was tripped just yards from winning the event.  His brother Yasser vowed revenge on the perpetrators.



Manelvagor
THEME - he War on Drugs

1.) - The Dept of Homeland Security's Midwest I.C.E. headquarters released this surveilance camera photo showing the prevalent use of the latest in the Wisconsin drug paraphernalia craze - the "Digital-camera Hash Pipe". (see how many crazed refer addicts YOU can spot in the photo)

2.) - In their ever-more sophisicated efforts to avoid detection for steroid use, players are now "scoring" from unconventional sources. (Jeter to Philly Mayor Nutter - "You sure this is the good stuff?"  Mayor Nutter to Jeter - "Same shtuff I get McNabb")

3.) - Unfortunately some of the more potent steroid combinations leave the user susceptible to the power of suggestion, as was evidenced when the PA Announcer at this soccer match started advertising the amazing trapize artists at a local circus. (from left - "Ho-ho", "Zzzowie", "Watch my triple", "I think I'm gonna puke")

4.) - In their efforts to slow the opium trade in backwards "dog adverse" muslim countries such as Afghanistan, Army counter-drug officers look in amazement at the unexpected results of their first "Drug Sniffing Gorilla" assessment. On the lighter side, later that evening the majority of D-company's soliders agreed that gorilla tastes just like beef.

5.) - As the path of the New York City Marathon winds its way through the Crown Heights area of Brooklyn, the runners must pass a gauntlet of offers of full blotters of 'tantric tabs', 'mad hatter', 'red dragon', 'purple budda' and 'fat freddie's cat' from the neighborhood's notorius "Acidic Jews".

Theme: Movie Quotes (slightly altered in some cases)

1.The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly - Woman: (shouting)   Hurrah! Hurrah for the Packers! HURRAH! Down with Lord Favre! Hurrah for General... What's his name? RODGERS! RODGERS!! Ha ha. God is with us because he hates the Vikes too. HURRAH!
Man on her right: [spits ] God is not on our side because he hates idiots also.

2. Bull Durham - Biden : Have you heard of Walt Whitman? Jeter: No, who's he play for?

3. The Sound of Music - All (in unison) The pitch is alive, with the Sound... Guy on the far left: Wait! We're supposed to spin around in circles. Let's try it again, from the top.

4. Fast Times at Ridgemont High - Private : "I can fix it. The Sergeant has this awesome set of tools." Corporal: "You can't fix this car Private Spicoli." Private: "I can fix it."

5. Fiddler on the Roof - Man holding child: As the good book says, if a man has no car, he must run down the street. Man across the street: Where does the book say that? Man holding child: Well, it doesn't say that exactly, but somewhere there is something about running.

#3 - Apparently kids in Europe play duck-duck-goose a little differently than those in the United States.

1.  All was forgiven however, when this lucky couple used 4-4-4 in the Pick 3 lottery and won $500.  Speaking of Pick 3, Brett has had a lot of those games in his career and still won.  Pick Sixes are very unlucky though.

2.  The mayor of Philly welcomes Derek to his city.  He also warns him hitting a homer means he has less than 24 hours to leave town.

3.  By puttting the "moogly-oogly" on the oppositions player during a free kick, it caused him to fall to the ground laughing.

4.  Ryan's glad that Tony doesn't have a rule that says. "You broke it, you bought it."

5.  The finish line?  Just run untill you go between the two dudes in the beards and funny hats.

#3 - After ratings on their TV show drastically declined and sales of their DVD's took a nose dive Greg, Anthony, Murray and Jeff of The Wiggles took to soccer so as to pass the time. But as you can clearly see, their "Fruit Salad, Yummy Yummy" & "Hot potato Hot potato" dances will never leave their system.

Glad I'm not the only one with those damn earworms in my head from when my kids were younger.
