The $5.37 “Caption This” Contest: Vol. 13

It’s another installment 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.

Regrettably, there were two laugh-out-loud standouts that I couldn’t choose between.

The deciding factor was when I saw the “Mayhem” Allstate Insurance commercial again this weekend which inspired Jamie Kocur’s winning caption. Check out the “Mayhem” video HERE as a reminder and then Jamie’s oh-so apropos caption below.

My BFF Becky just texted that she’s kissed Johnny. That’s a problem because I like Johnny. Now I’m all emotionally compromised.

The “2nd Place” caption was Jeremy Carver’s uber-funny, “In the time it takes her to read this text, she will have traveled the length of a foosball field.”

Regrettably – as the Highlander franchise has taught us – “There can be only one!”

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 confounding $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!

Periodically, 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. That moment when “Dress as your favorite fruit or animal” collides

  2. Hey I just met you and this is crazy but you’re a banana, can I peel you maybe?

  3. I’d rather be a piñata!

  4. That’s one out-of-reach fruit, which never tastes sweet.

  5. Banana : …and that’s all I can do for the remaining $4.63
