Captions & Prizes

I haven't been much in the blogging mood lately - it's not for lack of ideas, perhaps just a little burnout. So, today there will be prizes. :)

I will offer pictures and you give the caption. If you write the winning caption (Andrew and I will choose), I will send you a prize. You may write a caption for one or all of the photos - just make sure you say which ones you are entering! How's that sound? I'll let you know the winners on Saturday - there could be as many as four. This is unrelated to Bloggy Giveaways...it's just for you, blog readers, lurkers, happened byers, family and friends! Be creative and make me laugh! :)

I saw in your profile you like to write? What exactly? I am an Christian curriculum editor and am always looking for new writers.

#1: "What? Do I have something on my face?"

#2 "The corndog is really the rarest of meats and should be paired with a glass of pinot noir to really release the flavor" (said in a very snooty voice)

#3 "Your going to stick THAT, WHERE?"

#4: "In the spirit of going green, I am going to see if I can conduct electricity"

Alright... so I'm not sure mine are truly captions so much as commentary (some are a little long).
1. The food goes in my mouth?
2. Oh... you only wish you looked this good eating a hot dog!
3. A direct response to picture #4.
4. I have three children under the age of four... so yes, this is a good hair day!

Oh my gosh, some of those captions are HILARIOUS! I think the best one for your exquisite picture is the "I have 3 children and this is a good hair day" caption. How funny. It WILL be hard to choose. I am not even going to try. Just enjoying the imagination of others.

#4 Yes this is my sister and yes this is her usual look. :)

2. I told you I liked these. (said in that duh sort of way that only Patrick can pull off)

3. I wonder if anyone notices I have bad gas.

4. Infomercial announcer: "Great news, Ladies, in just five simple steps, you too can look like this!

My World (. . . as it happens) said...

I tried to skim through the comments to make sure I was not "copying" anyone. If I did - I aplogize . . . .

#1 - "Mom, you think I look pretty, don't you . . . ?"

#2 - "yes, I enjoy a corn dog . . . dosen't every boy?"

#3 - NO MORE CAFFEINE! SERIOUSLY

#4 - What, you think I look this way naturally?

Barbara D said...

#1 - Do I look like mommy?

#4 - 3 boys - no wonder my halo slipped!

#2 Life doesn't get any better than this!

#3 I can't believe my big brothers would do such a thing!
