WE HAVE A WINNER!!!!

Congratulations.....

TexasSara!!!!!

"The Outback: What happens here, stays here." - 8 votes

2nd Place

Very close behind, we have....Rich Kennedy

"Never MIND where I keep my kid, you pervert!" - 7 votes

All others received less than three votes a piece. These were the clear leaders throughout. Feel free to claim your losing captions in this thread if you so desire.

Unless there are objections, I will go on to the 2nd place pic from the earlier poll for the 3rd installment of our contest.

Shameless post to move this to the top of the list again.

Any thoughts on when I should close the polls. I was thinking I'd wait until I was in the lead, but um... it looks like that may not happen.

Just because no one is voting for your entry doesn't mean that you can impune the Clown Prince. tongue.gif

Funny. I have only one entry. And I don't even vote. I let my wife vote. And for the record, she's never voted for me. Let's give this a couple weekdays. I'll call an end to it on Tueday at the end of the workday EST.

Having seen all the entries I'm wondering if we picked the wrong picture. (I say this as one who I think voted for this one, and who readily admits his own entry was incredibly lame).

I wonder if we picked the funniest picture, rather than the most captionable one. Which I suspect is why, last time I looked, the entry that lets the picture do all the talking ("The Outback: What happens here, stays here.") is winning.

See first post for results.

By the way, my caption was the one-vote powerhouse about the "hoparazzi."

And I'd like to point out, the guy who got us all to vote for this pic got exactly ZERO votes and doesn't like Magnolia. But I won't mention his name.

Oh, you mean Ken? Mine was the "Matrix" one.

Mine was 'The Last Taboo' one. I voted for 'Outback' - shorter is funnier, I now realise.

Still, one vote! Can't take that away from me.

Page, out with it, which was yours?

Mine was the Norway-at-the-Eurovision-song-contest spectacularly null-point-gaining "Say Cheese" I entered it just to get my creative juices running, but found out instead that that pathetic entry was the sum total of my creative juice. So instead I resported to the cycnical method of criticising the choice of picture. blush.gif

As the bride of the the competition, I say thank you. I didn't have to wait eight years for this engagement. Thank you for all who voted for my caption. curtsey.gif

Rich, your caption was very funny, probably funnier than mine. Bow.gif

Do I still win a t-shirt?

Not necessarily. Of course, I was rooting for mine, but the minute I saw yours, I knew it would win. My old manager in real estate always said that smart folks borrow, but geniuses steal from the best and that campaign is about the best ad campaign going right now. Quoted everywhere.

Do I still win a t-shirt?

Only if you wear it to the wedding.

With how little I am enjoying searching for a bridal gown, that's kind of tempting.

I didn't realise that was an advertising campaign. To me it was most similar to a phrase borrowed from the rugby world "what goes on tour stays on tour" which is used, quite literally, quite literally, to cover a multitude of sins.

Matt, I believe it was first used to describe Las Vegas, as far back as the Rat Pack days I believe.

Dan, I believe you do believe that. And you can believe it!
