Caption contest

A place to be entertained. Videos, jokes, games, and more.
Forum rules
At the old Disney Hyperion Studio, the screening room where animators would show animated scenes to Walt for his approval was small, with no ventilation or AC. Not only was it hot, but the animators were nervously awaiting Walt's reaction to their work. Thus, the room became known as the Sweatbox. Even after the Studio moved to Burbank and elegant screening rooms were offered to the staff, the moniker remained.

Now SGT has a sweatbox of our own. This is the place to find and post all entertaining topics such as video links, jokes, games, and the like. A general rule of thumb is that if the thread is meant to be informative (interesting news stories for example), or a topic for discussion (like setting up a park meet) then it should go in the Break Room, but if the intent is to entertain the masses then it's home is The Sweatbox. I'm sure there will be grey areas at times, so if you have doubt as to where a new thread should go, just use your best judgement and the SGT Staff will be glad to move it later if you guessed wrong.

CAPTION CONTEST RESULTS! While you were out partying in the New Year, I was agonizing all night over the final contest results, sorting through the many, many funny entries you all posted this week! (Just kidding – I was asleep before midnight. I’m old and boring.) First, fourteen Honorable Mentions: Larry Lozuk: "One thing. Just one thing. You stick to that and the rest don't mean... anything."; Woody Woods: "2016 had great promise, Brad had an agent and was determined to become a star. Unfortunately the only openings were for the new Marlboro man and a sequel to Brokeback Mountain. Oh well, back to the courthouse."; DisneyMom: "He rode a Blazing Saddle..."; Bret Morris: "I may look the part, but I still don't know the Baritone to 'Ring of Fire.'"; Jay Marsh: "Wombat oddly looks east while riding north and fails the simple goal of riding off into the sunset."; Alan AJ Irby: "I've got a bad feeling about this... Oh wait! Wrong genre."; two from Scott Stogius Maximus Lewis: "Wombat auditions for 'The Ugly' in the vocal rendition of 'The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.' He is deemed 'overqualified.'" and "A young child cries in the distance, 'Come back!...' Wombat turns around, and the child says, 'Not you, Wombat -- Shane...."; Tom Jackson: "NOTE: One horse WAS harmed in the making of this photo."; ktulu: "Yep, superglue on the fingers."; Rick Bivins: "Wombat flunks the 'touch your nose' test."; Kelly Zink: "I don't always ride off into the sunset; but when I do, it's because I am... the most interesting Wombat in the world!"; Lynn A Ewing: "As he rode out of sight, he proclaimed, 'Zuckerberg is not sending you any money!' and poof! he was gone."; and darph nader: "Bob Ross had one last painting in him before he left us. The background was great... the foreground, not so much!'"

And this (appropriately musical) final winning entry comes from my longtime friend Bear Deardorff, his first win this year and second overall! Congratulations, Bear!

Thanks to all who entered! I’ll be back Monday, but just with a final tally of the standings – who was the top winner in 2015? And who was the top winner over the past three years???

And your final tally. Ktulu's run this year wasn't enough to unseat the master. Congratulations Alan AJ Irby!

CAPTION CONTEST for FEBRUARY 5! As threatened, just because I'm not posting a new pic weekly doesn't mean I've gone away. (Sorry!) So, how would you caption this picture? Comment below!

Image

The same pic will show here, on Facebook, and on The World of Wombat. I'll repost the pic with my favorite caption on Friday. No prize, just the glory of winning!

Disney's replacement for Captain EO didn't go over too well with the test audience. :cry:

No doubt about it... He looks much better without the 3D glasses.

CAPTION CONTEST RESULTS! I had a tough time choosing just one winner this week -- none of you were funny! (Kidding, kidding…) First, the Honorable Mentions: two from Scott Stogius Maximus Lewis: "With these 3-D glasses, it's almost as if you can SEE the stench." and "In Russia, you no watch movie.... movie watch YOU!"; Alan AJ Irby: "The 21st-century reboot of Mystery Science Theater 3000 was confusing for all involved."; DisneyMom: "The Surgeon General's new "Eat Healthy At The Movies" campaign takes terror tactics to a new level."; Ginger Commander Mann: "No, look again! That shirt is white with gold stripes."; darph nader: "A&E's new reality show: Keeping Up with the Wombats, now in 3-D."; ktulu: "Caption contest? Hollywood really is out of ideas!"; and Goofyernmost: "No doubt about it... He looks much better without the 3-D glasses.'"

Image

And the winner is… darph nader, his fourth win! Congratulations, darph!

Thanks to all who entered! New pic coming… someday!

As is usual with IKEA products, it was quickly realized that WOMMBAT was missing a few screws.
