The $5.37 “Caption This” Contest: Vol. 10

Welcome to another edition of the lowest-cash-award-for-a-photo-caption-contest on the Internet, the $5.37 Caption This Contest!

Thanks to everyone who entered the most recent iteration of the contest last week.

There were so many incredible  entries this time, that I actually submitted the entries as one of the questions on last night’s presidential debate – you may have missed that individual issue.

The topic was discussed in the green room before both candidates took the stage – the hotly contested issue was run in its entirety on C-SPAN (that might be a complete lie). Ironically, both candidates agreed on the winning caption (at least that’s the fiction I like to tell myself).

The bi-partisan winner of the $5.37 Caption This Photo Contest is Maria Cowell (a.k.a hipmamamedia), check out her caption below.

“If I were getting married in Europe I wouldn’t need to do this and the wine would be French.”

Congratulations to the victor – who can message me at Facebook or on Twitter with an appropriate email address.

That will allow me to send the incredibly generous $5.37 cash prize via Paypal or as an Amazon e-gift card.

For everyone else who didn’t win the “Caption This” Contest – please don’t be discouraged and take heart because it’s time for another round. Here are the rules!

On Fridays (or when I feel like it) I’ll post some kind of amusing, ironic or ambiguous photo that you’re then invited to develop a caption for in the comment section below.

  • Captions will be accepted until the next image is posted, at which time I’ll also announce the previous contest winner.
  • The creator of the funniest, caption will receive an Amazon e-gift card or Paypal deposit for the princely sum of $5.37.
  • You can enter as many times as you’d like but each entry must be a separate comment.

As background, why such a randomly specific cash prize you ask???

I allowed my 8-year old the option of selecting the prize amount – up to $10.00 – and $5.37 was the number she chose (go figure).

Here’s this week’s caption image – good luck!!!

  1. Why can’t we just drive over the railroad tracks to get labor started like everyone else.

  2. Push…..Breath….Push

  3. When they said labor I was thinking of something totally different!

  4. Honey, are you sure this is what the doctor recommended to get things rolling?

  5. I’m never witty enough to come up with captions for these, but just wanted to say I love them and especially enjoy laughing through the comments! :)

  6. Cletus thought it was a fair trade for gettin em out of the Park and into a house without wheels.

  7. “Honey, fix you a sandwich when I’m done mowing?”

    “When y’all are done playin’ wit’ Honey Boo-Boo, y’uns wun sum grub?”

    They call me OctoMow.

  8. Lori Waters says:

    This mower may be 28 weeks, but I’m not going to wait another 12 weeks in this heat.
