Things I Suck At: Caption Contests...

There are a number of blogs that, from time to time, feature caption contests in which a photo is posted and people compete to come up with the most original caption for it. One of the most prominent is the long-running "Firecrotch Of The Month" contest at The Pop Eye. Every time I see one of these contests it is a sad reminder of just how bad I am at captioning. I present to you a few of my failed entries from various sites. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong:

Oh c'mon! Those are HILARIOUS! Especially the last one. No one likes a large neckhole.

I think you are better than most!

Yeah, these are awesome. You've never even attempted my caption contest, have you? I think you would probably win. Especially since you just used the word "prominent" in the same sentence as my blog.

I suck a caption contests, but I won BeckEye's once. Have faith! These ARE hilarious.

I wish I were more clever but never seem to come up with a funny caption on these things.

You don't even need funny captions. The genius of caption contests is letting your readers do the work for you.

Hahaha! I laughed hard. The kitchen decor one and the lobsters almost killed me. Not literally. Not with a butter knife...

I am the world's WORST caption person for real. Not pretend real like you.

I loved these! I don't have any awards for you, but I'll have a glass of wine in your honor tonight. And I'm pretending to hug you right...now.
Did you feel it? Did you???

I think that it is entirely appropriate for lobsters to fight with butter knives, as long as they wear plastic bibs.

Madam Z said...

Keep trying, Guy. Practice makes perfect, you know! That's why the lobsters are starting out with butter knives.

LOL at the last one.

I think you did pretty well with the captioning. You induced a few chuckles and even a giggle or two out of me at least.
