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

Saturday, August 16th, 2008

Knock-knock! Anybody there?

Last week I hit you with this rather astonishing image:

…and precisely one of you responded with a caption.

Of course, if it’s good, one is all you need. Luckily, that was the case here. Congratulaions to daisyj! She sent in the only entry, but in all honesty if I’d had a dozen to choose from, she would probably have won anyway with this one:

Even Ellie had to admit that holding a postmortem wedding had its drawbacks, but she did save a bundle on outfits for the attendants.

Well done, daisyj!

And for those of you wondering about the Olympic connection, follow the cut and find out.

Twistie’s Sunday Caption Madness: The Incredibly Surreal Edition

Sunday, June 22nd, 2008

You all know how this works by now. I find a picture that amuses me in some way…often a slightly horrified way, but that’s a way, too. Anyway, I post it, you comment with your best captions, and next week I declare a winner.

Twistie’s Sunday Caption Madness: The Result

Saturday, June 7th, 2008

You guys, you guys, you guys. You are amazing.

Last week I confronted you with this picture:

and you responded with eleven hilarious responses.

In the end, though, there can be only one winner. This week, it’s someone who touched the heart of the matter right away. Perhaps it’s how apt the caption was. Perhaps it’s the fact that she referenced one of the very few Broadway musicals that I truly love. Meh, I think it was just that it was wildly funny and approprite.

The winner is Jennie for this classic:

I feel pretty! Oh so pretty! I feel pretty and witty and gay!

Congratualtions, Jennie! And thanks to everyone who played.

Once again, you guys amaze, amuse, and generally delight me. Faced with this image

you came back at me with ten different captions to tickle the fancy. There can, however, be only one winner, and that is…the anonymous soul who came up with this beauty:

While photographs such as the one above were widely disseminated at the time, many historians continue to cast doubt on the exact events of the “Kleinfeld Death March”

Congratulations…whoever you are! And thanks to everyone who played.
