Happy Sunday, folks!

Okay, I know it is supposed to be a Saturday post, but I may or may not have gotten slightly tipsy at a party last night, and, er, yeah.  It became a late Sunday post. Sorry. (ow, my head)

At any rate, the first Summer Saturday Kaption Kontest was a bit of a mixed bag.  My site lurkers didn’t really turn up, but I have hope that you just need a little more time/coaxing, and will pop up with hilarious entries for this coming week.  But on the other hand, after a plea on Twitter, some lovely folks turned up and posted some HILARIOUS ideas.  Really, even though there were only four, it was so hard for me to chose.  Even Nikki and I were divided. I wanted to just caption them all, but in the interest of fairness, I did settle on one.  Just know that I loved them all, and they really did make me laugh out loud, and that’s really the selfish point in all this anyway.

So without further ado, this week’s winner is the PUN-tastic MDZ4EVAA :

I hope you’ll forgive me, MDZ4EVAA, because I “Lolcat-i-fied” the verbage a little.  But your caption was so clever, and Nikki and I really appreciated that, so Congrats!!  You are the inaugural winner!

And thank you ALL for your entries.

I found some more inspiration for y’all…


Now get your funny cap on, here is this week’s photo, courtesy of Captain Cally and the Rangers:

Good luck!! Get busy!


Hi everyone, thanks for stopping on by.  We’ve got a new Saturday thing to get us through the summer, until Sexy Saturday can return.  All you lurkers out there need to de-cloak and join in, because this will only work if people participate. We’ll see how it goes on this trial run.  So get your funny on and get ready for our…..



What I am going to do is post a hockey photo, and you all supply the caption. Easy-peasy.  You just reply in the comments section.  You have until Friday at 4pm CST.  The one that makes me laugh the most will get their caption printed on the photo, which I will re-post the next Saturday, and their name will be up in lights.  Or at least up on the blog. Unless you want to remain nameless.  In which case you can email me here, and I will use your caption but keep your name out of it.  But really, you could be WORLD FAMOUS, so why wouldn’t you want your name on the blog?

Just please keep it clean.  You can be risqué, but don’t be crude. I will zap you.  And please have fun. Don’t be afraid to just float something out there.

You may be wondering about the spelling of the contest.  If you are familiar with LOLCat, you will understand. If not, this website will help:


It is basically a phonetic spelling, with the word order reversed, as it is in many languages other than English. Here are some examples from hockey pictures to inspire you:


But it doesn’t have to be in LOLSpeak (though those CRACK ME UP). They can just be funny captions:


There you have it, your inspiration.  I’m still laughing over these.  People are brilliant.  But no one is more brilliant than our readers. So go ahead and impress me. Here is your muse, courtesy of Carey Price and James Neal:
