The $5.37 “Caption This” Contest: Vol. 8

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 to win the most recent iteration of the contest a few weeks ago.

The competition was tough – so I had one of our longhair, Ragdoll cats walk around the caption entries I had laid out on the floor and the entry that she regurgitated a hairball on would be the winner!

That lucky winner was Ken Hagerman see his caption below.

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

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!!!

    Thanks for the prize. Can I have the hairball? I mean, if you’re not going to use it.

      Will do – I’m having it bronzed for you as we speak (albeit, that could be a complete fabrication on my part)….
