The $5.37 “Caption This” Contest: Vol. 7

It’s the long awaited return of the lowest-cash-award-for-a-photo-caption-contest on the Internet, the $5.37 Caption This Contest!

Thanks to everyone who entered to win the most recent iteration of the contest several weeks ago.

The birth of our son in June placed this photo caption contest feature on a hiatus but it’s back in the editorial rotation here on The Daily ReTORt.

During the respite I tried a new selection process for the winning caption. I printed each of them up and placed them on our kitchen table. I then held our newborn son over the collection and the first caption that he “spit up” would win.

That lucky winner was GuitarSlinger87 see his caption below.

Devastated at learning that Jim was the one controlling the red dot, Whiskers took matters into his own paws…

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 – 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:

    “They told me to look stern since they didn’t give us guns.”

    “YOU may not have a gun…”

  2. “I told you I didn’t want to smell your hand!”

    • Ken, you’re the winner of the most recent $5.37 contest my friend – would you prefer to get the winnings as an Amazon gift card or Paypal payment? Let me know!

      • (in music industry fashion) I would like to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for making this possible. I want to shout out to all the fellas in cellblock d “I told you I’s gonna make it big suckas.”

        Thanks for real, Tor. An Amazon gift card will be fine. Unless you have unmarked United States pennies, no newer than 1988 and can mail them to me here in Paraguay. With that amount of weight shipping will be approximately $25. Good deal huh?

  3. I can’t believe he ate the whole thing!

  4. Meredith Janik says:

    Ever since that Rock band went to jail there has been nothing to do-no protests. I am going to have to figure out something to do in this new economy. Perhaps creating some security software to police the internet. Then at least I can sit at a desk with a laptop.

  5. Victoria Munoz says:

    He thought he was joining the elite force…until they let fatty mcbutterpants in.

  6. I’m not looking, but If he eats that booger on his finger, I’m transferring outta here.
