Caption This Entries and Winner!



Last Friday I presented a tiny bit of a challenge to you all.  Well, considering the photo, not really a challenge at all actually.  I asked you to come up with a caption for a photo.  A photo of me.  Looking pretty.  And elegant.

The person to come up with the caption deemed the best by myself, the fella, a bunch of random drunk people I found in a bar, and a 7″ tall version of the Travelocity Gnome would win an Art of Doing Stuff Tea towel.

What follows is the photo, the honourable mentions and … the winner.


The Photo


The winning caption:

“Can you pass me my wine, I can’t reach it from here”


Congratulations Pamela Smith. YOU are the winner of a limited edition Art of Doing Stuff tea towel! Send me an email at [email protected] and I’ll send you your tea towel.


Honorable Mentions

 “In a diabolical assassination attempt, and planning to set up a junta regime, Karen’s cats have eaten the rubber nubbies off the bottoms of her no-skid slipper socks.”  – Gloria Slater

“FELLA! I fell down the stairs again!  No, no, no don’t help me up! Go get the camera!” – Rachel White

“I’d push you down the stairs too if you came to bed wearing that.”- Sara Easton

“At the insistence of her minions, Karen finally tried brussel sprouts roasted in the oven with olive oil and sea salt. The horrific image you are about to witness is the tragic result… ” – Sara Yancey

“Falling down stairs is one of the 4 “true” injuries” – Jen

Have a good weekend all. Another fun, albeit slightly more complicated homework assignment next week!

    Ok…I’ve been drunk clearly for weeks and just found out I’ve won….OMG!! Karen, I’ve private messaged you :) Thanks for falling down the stairs and giving me this amazing opportunity!


  2. mary c says:

    Me too on Jen’s. Chortle, chortle, chortle. In a loud, guffawing kind of way.

  3. I laughed out loud at Jen’s!!!!! So funny and so indicative of a dedicated “true” reader:)

  4. Claudine says:

    Alright, I just saw this post, as I was out working in my front yard garden all day yesterday. But I’m writing it anyway.

    Karen, newest member of Cirque du Soleil, rehearses at home during a bout of insomnia.

    Great photo. And the winning wine caption is great!

  5. debra b says:

  6. Danielle m. says:

    Oh Jen…Fantastic!

  7. pve says:

    “She’d fallen on hard times but found comfort on those pink flannel pajamas.”

  8. Nancy says:

    There were so many good ones..must have been hard to choose Karen..Congrats to Pamela..

  9. karenagain says:

    LOL I missed the caption contest. Mine would have been, “I said a bottle of Hochtaler, not a f’n box!”

    But looking again, you have your jammies on… “I wanted you to get me roofers, not roofies.”

    “Falling down stairs is one of the 4 “true” injuries” – Jen

    heheheheheheheheheehehhehehheehehe heh.
    Thanks for the laugh.

  11. Tara says:

    Great captions! Congratulations to the winners!

  12. ev says:

    “Inquiring readers want to know”! Pleeeeze tell us the story of “The Great Fall” Karen! Pleeeeeeze….

  13. Bonnie G. says:

    So says the cat, “where’s the poop scoop on that photo?”

  14. jane says:

    I second Larita, we want the back story!

  15. Melissa says:

    I think the fella’s father would have voted for Jen :D Will there be more of these caption contests? It’s just like the back pages of The New Yorker…

  16. Sherry (BTLover2) says:

    Oh, how did I miss this??? I’m dying, DYING! The photo is priceless but you’ve got some very, very funny readers! Love it! First I get to laugh at (I mean “with”) you and then I get to laugh at all the comments. Makes a girl’s day. You’re the best!

  17. magali says:

    the honorable mentions are amazing!!

  18. Tara says:

    He he, I like Jen’s.

  19. Susan says:

    You were right Pamela’s was the best! But all are good. Now what’s the scoop? Why are you at the bottom of the stairs or was this truly just to generate some clever comments?

  20. Gayla T says:

    Ok, now tell all. Was the entire thing staged or did you fall and wait for the fella to find the camera? One way or the other it was a hoot and so were the entries….even the ones that didn’t win were plenty funny. This seems to be a gathering place for wanna be comedians.

  21. sara says:

    Hahaha! “True injuries” should have won for sure! I thought you didn’t like wine, did I make that up?

  22. Nicole2 says:

    I like the cat one the best. Because we make our cat talk and she says stuff like “Tonight, I kill you. In your sleep.” So we totally get that. Plus cat humour never fails.

    Oh and she talks with a Russian accent. Of course.

  23. Carla Barnes says:

    “Falling down stairs is one of the 4 “true” injuries” – Jen

    They were all funny, but Jen’s caption made me laugh-out-loudly!
    (Of course, Rachel’s seems the most probable.)

    • cred says:

      I agree, Carla. I was amused by them all but I laughed out loud, too when I read Jen’s.

    • nancy says:

      me too! my favorite. i am kinda doped up after a shoulder thing and that made me hurt laughing so hard and suddenly!!

  24. Larita says:

    What?! We don’t get the story behind the picture?! What kind of show are you running here?!

  25. Tricia Rose says:

    I loved the advanced yoga ‘slinky’ pose…

  26. Jeanne says:

    Red wine I presume..?? Seems to make me fall
    asshole over elbows everytime!! LOL :)

  27. Shannon V. says:

    BWA-HA-HA….love all the captions….makes mine look so lame! Congrats Pamela…enjoy the tea towel!

  28. Laura says:

    Oh, I love Sara and Jen’s!
