Twistie’s Sunday Caption Madness: The Major Firepower Edition

Sunday, July 19th, 2009

Good morning wedding fans, and welcome to another edition of Twistie’s Sunday Caption Madness!

You all know the rules. I find a picture that I feel is simply crying out for a great caption. You search the depths of your brain/funny bone/festering soul and come up with one…or two…or seventy three. You then post your best captions in the comments section. Next saturday I pick a winner and we all have some good yucks.

Ready? Good. Then we’ll begin.

Ready…set…snark!

Twistie’s Sunday Caption Madness: The Vapors Edition: The Results

Saturday, June 13th, 2009

Hello, everybody!

Remember last week when I inflicted this image on you all?

Swooning Groom Yeah, back when I asked you to come up with captions for me.

Well you did my bidding, for which I thank you. You came up with some doozies, but there can be only one winner. This week said winner is Jennie for appealing to me as a child of the sixties:

(Announcer over the intercom) Attention all wedding guests! Please do not drink the brown acid…I mean punch…

Hey, who am I to turn my back on a good Woodstock reference?

Congratulations, Jennie! And thanks to everyone who played.

Twistie’s Sunday Caption Madness: The Boogie Down Edition: The Results

Saturday, May 2nd, 2009

Well, it’s saturday and time to declare a winner in last week’s Sunday Caption Madness contest.

Last week I presented you all with this haunting image:

and five of you left giggle-to-guffaw-worthy responses. Well done, to all five of you. You set the bar high.

In the end, though, there can be but one winner. This time it has to be daisyj for this gem:

It was cute for the first couple of steps. But when the guests realized that the happy couple was planning to do their “special dance” all the way to the reception, the defections to the bar were swift and decisive.

Congratulations, daisyj, and thanks to everyone who played! You all made me feel much, much better.

Twistie’s Sunday Caption Madness: The Boogie Down Edition

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

Yesterday, I had a painful experience. I fell flat on my face in public. Not just in public, but at an Earth Day celebration in Berkeley. And I didn’t just take a bit of a tumble. No, I did a huge roll followed by a nasty faceplant in the grass. It could have been worse. I could have stumbled on the cement walkway…or I could have been in a crowd where that kind of a landing might have inspired someone to reach for my wallet. As it was, several kind strangers checked on my well-being and a couple even stuck around until Mr. Twistie had managed to haul my distinctly not petite backside off the grass and I had proved I could walk under my own power.

Still, I’m bruised, my nose is badly scraped, and I’m a tidge mortified to have taken a spectacular splat in front of so many people.

In short, I need some giggles. The fastest way I know of to get such giggles is to present all of you with a picture that’s just calling out for a silly caption. You know what to do with it.

Next saturday, when naught but the memories are painful, I’ll declare a winner and there will be much rejoicing.

Ready…set…snark!

Twistie’s Sunday Caption Madness: The Seriously Overpampered Edition: The Result

Saturday, April 4th, 2009

Wow.

Just wow.

Last week I presented you all with this image for your snarking pleasure:

and you guys hit me back with some ten rib-tickling responses.

I admit that I wavered. I second-guessed. I even waffled, which was quite delicious. I always forget just how tasty and comforting waffles can be…but I digress, yet again.

In the end, there can be but one winner. That is, except when there are two so evenly matched that I am forced to declare a tie. Congratulations, Fabrisse and KTB. You are this week’s joint winners. You may pick the joint of your choice. In the event that you choose the same joint, you’ll just have to share.

What were the winning entries? Taken in alphabetical order of author, here they are:

Miss Havisham: The Early Years coming soon on HBO

and

Every good bride knows just how important it is to match your shoes and crinolines to the cake.

Congratulations, Fabrisse and KTB, and thanks to everyone who played.
