Caption Contest Winners

New, comments

This week's caption contest inspired some truly outstanding possibilities, a few of which I'll mention here.

The Finalists

First, I have to note that our entries included a binary joke, which deserves mention, period. Creative ones, you are.

"The Texas A&M Binary Football Team celebrates its victory over the varsity squad by flashing its 'Base Two' hand signal.  Javorskie Lane rushed for 1111001 yards and 100 touchdowns as the Binary Aggies moved to 10-0 on the season.  Lane said, 'Everything's bigger in binary!'"

--King Bee--

There were at least a half dozen animal loving jokes which cracked me up, two of which I'll include here:

"Aggieland Shocker: "None in the pink, two in the sheep"


"The Aggieland Shocker: Created by Aggies, for Aggies. (And collies)."

And last, before we get to the winners, I have to point you to this entry which I simply adored. It's not quite a caption, and thus not a winner, but it deserves public recognition:

This is Fatass Tap

Nigel Tufnel: The jerseys go to eleven. Look, right across the board, ten, ten, eleven
Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most teams just go up to ten?
Nigel Tufnel: Exactly.
Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it's bigger? Is it any better?
Nigel Tufnel: Well, it's one fatter, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your scale. Where can you go from there? Where?
Marty DiBergi: I don't know.
Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra roll over the belt, you know what we do?
Marty DiBergi: Put on eleven.
Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One fatter.
Marty DiBergi: Why don't you just make ten bigger and make ten be the top number and make that a little fatter?
Nigel Tufnel: [pause] He goes to eleven.

The Winners

The very first comment was one which stuck with me throughout the whole thing, and is one of our co-winners:

Texas A&M's policy of handing out numbers based on ACT scores has created some obvious confusion - as well as a record number of "12th Men."

--JT Longhorn--

And, as a reminder that Simple still rules, our other co-winner:

"We won by two! We won by two!"


Thanks to everyone for the submissions - I got many, many laughs throughout the process. JT Longhorn and lhosek - email me with your name, t-shirt size, and address and I'll get you each a shirt.
