The funniest [caption]

February 4, 2009

This whole thing was meant to be subjective from the start.

The funniest caption.  According to whom?

After a while, though, I started to distrust my own subjectivity.  Could I not be dispassionate, truly?  Plus who am I and what do I know.

So I did what any practiced shirker of responsibility would do and, instead, opened it up to a distinguished panel of judges.  One of them, actually.  Only.  One judge.

A true arbiter of taste: Diane Warren.

So, without any further ado, I give you our distinguished panel’s selection for the funniest [insert your own caption]:

Promo shoot for the first pitch of Big Love.

Congratulations, @danielskreened!  You’ll be enjoying $5 off your next meal at the Lessner joint of your choosing!  Check your mail.

Note: our distinguished panel unanimously agreed that, with the benefit of a little editing, the winning selection could very well have been the following entry (with a little thoughtful editing) from @mikergray:

Killing the environment, one perm at a time.

@mikergray, DM me your mailing address, and a consolation prize will be on the way.

The original post with all entries has been lovingly restored for your viewing/reading pleasure.

[REALLY important note: it was estimated that this pic was taken about 25 years ago.  4 of these 5 young women still work at Dawson.  Without them, I am utterly worthless.  I heart them, all.]

Thanks to everybody who played!
