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 challenge runs daily, Monday-Thursday. Each day's competition will usually be posted by noon ET, and will usually end around 11 p.m. ET. On Monday and Wednesday, Community member ktopp24 will be the judge. On Tuesday and Thursday, I'll run the show. If one of the judges 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 that day's challenge 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 zero.

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

Congrats Buc for keeping the streak alive.  lol  BTW your caption on 2 was nothing less than brilliant.

Thanks Joe.  The king is a LONG ways up there.  I think I'll be happy with second all time.

YES!!!!  Six straight second place finishes!!  Now to give my Buccin Lucci acceptance speech for my captioning emmy.  I'd like to thank my family, Shuless Joe and ktopp24, and all the little people who made this possible.  You like me.  You all really, sort of like me!!!  Sniffle, sniffle, tear. Cry

Congrats to the Rat! Our March winner not only grabs the monthly title, but claims sole possession of second place on the all-time wins list. I'll be darned if we don't have a nice little history going here!


As everyone pointed out, quality has been way up lately, especially over the last week... which has been awesome. Sorry if my posts have been a little few and far between, but my new responsibilities have me pretty booked up. Definitely miss it on the days I can't make time. Thanks for all the laughs, though. You guys are getting me through. Smile


April starts tomorrow. Gator, Moo... you guys are due!


NcalSweep
1. Now playing at the MGM Grand......Sperm Du Soleil.  

BuccinGator
2) Other dude: "How long have you had those hoes?"
    Brandon Roy: "For six seasons.  They're for sale if you want them."
    Other dude: "Let me see your papers."
    Brandon Roy (waving hand): "You don't need to see my papers."
    Other dude: "We don't need to see his papers."
    Brandon Roy: "These aren't the hoes you're looking for."
    Other dude: "Those aren't the hoes we're looking for."
    Brandon Roy: "Move along."
    Other dude: "Move along.  Move along."

3. It was Jimmy's first day on the job. When they told him to clean the ice with a Zamboni, he thought that was an Italian figure skater.

kmvenne
4) Corey Brewer secures third place in the "Lamest use of his last name as a corporate pun on the Timberwolves" contest, behind the Al Jefferson "Deluxe Apartment-like Boxes of the Sky type" corporate ticket drive, and the Kevin Love "Shack, baby", which I'm not going to get into, but put the Minnesota Vikings Sex Boat to shame.

BuccinGator
5) "Yeah, I finally made it to the NBA, the National Baker's Association.  I'm making all kinds of dough.  In fact, I'm rollin' it."



D2Moo
Five reasons why D2Moo again comes nowhere close to winning Joe's contest.
1.  He spends too much time trying out for the new Cirque Du Soleil show about men in white suits coming to take away a crazed captioner.  Called Captionique, it will hit the strip in Vegas sometime in 2011.
2.  Spends too much time cleaning up his neighborhood then stands around on the street corner selling hoes and rakes to neighborhood garden addicts needing a green fix.
3.  Spends way too much time carrying the Mrs. around.  Literally carrying her princess butt around.  At least she's beautiful though.
4.  Has become a 3 bag a day coffee drinker and spends valuable computer time urinating all the time.
5.  Can't type clever captions while helping kids from disadvantaged families learn the finer points of being a master pastry chef.  Hands covered with dough really mess up the old keyboard.  Well I guess no more than the stuff he types in anyway when he gets the chance.

If I get outscored by Buccin Lucci by 5 over the last 2/3rds of this month and cede second place, I might have to quit. Or quit my job. Or quit missing days on the back end of these contests. Or do more themes. Or just keep on keeping on. It's for sure one of these options.<br />

Great month everyone.  Congrats, Rat.  At least I'm in line for a shot at my sixth consecutive second place finish after a slow start this month.  One of these month's will belong to BuccinGator!!!

BuccinGator lays it on thick to try to score one last point:

1) Forgetting ktopp is on vacation and Joe is scoring this final day, Buc starts off behind the eight ball by sending in a picture of thirtyfour men.

2) Digging himself a bigger hole, Buc asks for three small hos to be sent to Ft. Loody Doody, but three small hoes are sent instead.

3) Buc further buries himself by suggesting Joe use the one upskirt pic nobody wants to see.

4) Buc finally resigns himself to try to get Joe so jumped up on Joe, his lame captions today will seem to make more sense.

5) Buc convinces Wayne Ellington to bake Joe a cake to try to make up, but when Wayne gets Nike involved and Nike gets the child labor involved, it results in jail time in the federal penitentiary for all involved.

1) Tonight on "World's Deadliest Catch," watch as the crew does battle with troll lines full of French fencers.

2) Other dude: "How long have you had those hoes?"
    Brandon Roy: "For six seasons.  They're for sale if you want them."
    Other dude: "Let me see your papers."
    Brandon Roy (waving hand): "You don't need to see my papers."
    Other dude: "We don't need to see his papers."
    Brandon Roy: "These aren't the hoes you're looking for."
    Other dude: "Those aren't the hoes we're looking for."
    Brandon Roy: "Move along."
    Other dude: "Move along.  Move along."

3) Pavel Datsyuk is stunned when his "Skating with the NHL Stars" partner turned out to be an Amazon complete with thick underbrush.

4) Also soon to be released by NBA Products, "Jordan's Oil, Nash's Guitar Licks, and Wade's Waders."

5) "Yeah, I finally made it to the NBA, the National Baker's Association.  I'm making all kinds of dough.  In fact, I'm rollin' it."

Awesome, welcome back skinsinsk!  Rough day at work.  Trying to get caught up, and not injure any toes.
