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? :)

Photo Caption Challenge: I stole Superman's pants

I know I'm new and all, so I probably shouldn't be saying anything, and if I'm seriously stepping over the line, then please somebody put me back in my place, but ear-raping? Really? We're giving out points for ear-raping? Come on.... 

You are certainly not over stepping your boundaries. You have every right to speak your opinion.

And I just need to say that I did not award that point because it said "ear-raping". I awarded that point because it made me laugh. That's the point of this blog. And sometimes an entry that would be considered "mature" wins. That's just the nature of the beast.

On a side note, what does it take to get a point around here anymore.

Oh, and something happened to the tags.  Instead of listing them, it totals them up.  I don't care that there's 23 tags.  I care that one of them is Eric Esssssssstrada.

If you click on that "23" it takes you to a page that says "This user has no blog entries". It doesn't display the tags associated with the blog. I think the designer has some work to do.

Also, they need to give us back "number of comments" balloon when searching blogs to respond to. Here here!!!  Was thinking that myself.  On a side note, what does it take to get a point around here anymore.  Sheesh.  I haven't had this bad of a dry spell since my rookie days.

I like the new look on the site but tell the designers that the "Add A Comment" button on blogs does not work.  Also, they need to give us back "number of comments" balloon when searching blogs to respond to.

Superman was upset to learn that his legs had run off, but downright devastated to hear that his lower half was ear-raping everyone in sight.

#2 - River_Rat

As Sigmund Freud takes a stroll around Joe's subconsious, he see's a field day and a lot of overtime on the way.

#3 - D2Moo

The NBA outsources the league to China after US and Euro players price themselves out of the market.  Shoot, you even get a box of potstickers delivered by your favorite player every game if you buy season tickets on the floor.

#4 - huachuca

He has a great story to tell everybody.  He was lying out in the sun when the golf ball landed on his chest and a PGA offical ruled it was a bunker.

#5 - River_Rat

Eric Estrada's part in the film The Expendables was cut out, as they were not able to kill him off fast enough for the test audiences.

Theme - huachuca

American Television

1.  When the old man on Pawn Stars only offered this guy half as much as he thought the life size Super Man dummy was worth he decided to just sell the top half to the pawn shop and offer the bottom half to American Pickers.

2.  In the next episode of America's Next Top Model, the studio's security guards are allowed to compete.

3.  As part of NBC's coverage of the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, the Chinese were required to provide somebody to carry Michael Phelp's medals around in a special bos.

4.  Jimmy Johnson stars in Survivor where tourists must survive the Florida Keys without sunscreen.

5.  After a hit TV series results in type casting, many actors like Eric Estrada are reduced to sponsoring products in TV commercials.  But I can't tell if this is some kind of liquor or just a big bottle of after shave.

Photo Caption Challenge: I stole Superman's pants

1.  The oddly dressed woman with the canvas bag apparently has zero interest in the odder dude carrying half a Superman dummy that is in need of less transparent shorts.

2.  What the women of The View look like to most males at 1 AM after two too many Jaegerbombs and a few jello shots. 

3.  The NBA outsources the league to China after US and Euro players price themselves out of the market.  Shoot, you even get a box of potstickers delivered by your favorite player every game if you buy season tickets on the floor.

4.  Jimmy Johnson overdoses on ExtenZe and ends up giving up his luxurious lifestyle to woo a common waitress fron a nearby Denny's by treating her to a beer filled weekend in the cheap seats at Bristol. 

5.  Eric hawks the only tequila strong enough to make the drinker think Estrada's a good actor.

1) His mom has always told Steve he has a super head on his shoulders! But he's never quite understood what she meant!
