Comments: New Caption Contest...

Protip: if you want to actually WIN a caption contest, change your name to V the K or Hudlumman or Rodney Dill or... I'm kidding

Good idea! Any suggestions are most welcome!

Thanks for the weekly links, Pam!

As to the contest, just keep on trying, you never know when you will find something that will crack me up, which is, of course, the key. I try to be fair when I judge each contest, but some folks have a knack for making me laugh the most. I guess they are tuned in to my sense of humor. I have, however had people win that have only played one contest, they just captured lightning in a bottle and made me laugh the hardest, loudest and/or longest, which is all it takes!

The best advice I can give out is to play early (it gives you the best chance to hit some of the real good possible captions and be the first to capture a truly funny idea that others can then only copy or refine) and to enter multiple times in each contest (which you appear to have done this week). Even V the K, D. Carter, Rodney Dill, Son of the Godfather and a lot of the other top players fail to hit the mark many times, but because they put up 5 to 10 entries apiece (sometimes more), they have an excellent chance of striking gold in there somewhere! [Uh-oh! The secret is out!]

Also, many of them come back several times and post some more if they think of any new ideas as the week goes on.

Thanks again for participating and for linking and keep on going for the gold!
