Fun Friday—Funny Caption Contest (with giveaway!)

Friday, February 10, 2012

I’ve got a bunch of books with my name on the cover/spine sitting around my house taking up valuable storage space. So it’s time to give away a few. But you’ll have to work for it.

“Now Caption This” Contest
This is a two-day contest—running Friday, February 10 and Saturday, February 11, 2012 (ending at 12-midnight Central US time Saturday night).

I need a laugh. Your job is to try to make me (and thus each other) laugh by coming up with funny caption for the following photos. This is a subjective contest, because I’ll pick the three winners based on whose captions I think are funniest. You can do any or all of the photos, up to three captions each (total of nine, so make each one count). I will pick a winning caption for each of the three photos. Be sure to label your caption with A, B, or C so we know which one it applies to. You can click on the photo to enlarge it.

Each of the winners will get to pick their choice of one of my nine books to be signed and mailed to them. I’ll e-mail the winners and post the announcement on Sunday.

      All captions must be posted as comments here on the blog, not on Facebook or Twitter, to count as entries in the contest. Please be as creative and clean as possible. Captions not marked A, B, or C will not be considered entries, so make sure to label them appropriately.

Ready . . . set . . . CAPTION!
