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.

"The hills are alive... and it's pretty frightening!"

Be on your way Julie Andrews, your replacement has arrived and high on a hill stood a lonely Wambat!

CAPTION CONTEST RESULTS! This was another week with incredible response -- 75+ entries! That might be a record… if I kept track of such things. Anyway, lots of funny this week to choose from, which means that many more of you will be disappointed! Yay? So first, your Honorable Mentions: WEDFan: "The hills are alive... and it's pretty frightening!"; Jay Marsh: "If a baritone sings in the woods and no one is there to hear it, is it still weird?"; Daniel Burke: "All this can be yours if you just bow down and serve me."; Kathrine Ricks Seale: "And with this, Facebook finally revoked Wombat's Caption Contest privileges."; Bear Deardorff: "Wombat self-identifies as an Edelweiss and displays his pride in his new-found identity."; Bret Morris: "A peek into Wombat's head when accepting applause at a VM show."; and of course this one, first submitted by Purpura and then several others: "The hills are aliiiiive with the sound of Wombaaat!!!"

Image

And the winner this week is my longtime friend from our crazy college days Kathrine Ricks Seale (or is that my crazy friend from our longtime college days?), her first win! Congratulations, Kathy -- and Nertz! :lol:

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

After a lukewarm reception of "Batman vs. Superman", the planned sequel "Batman vs. Wombat", already in production, was pulled. In this rare production still, we see the tense first encounter when Wombat answers the call to confront the vigilante.

CAPTION CONTEST RESULTS! Tons of great captions kept pouring in this week, but my favorite was one of the first submitted! Here are the Honorable Mentions: Tom Jackson: "I hate to even ask, but does your suit come in Extra Extra Large?"; Joel Bezaire: "You're not the marsupial Gotham deserves, but you're the marsupial Gotham needs right now." (and thank you, Joel, for recognizing that wombats are marsupials, not rodents!); Cory Church: "See, Batman, they'd rather have Wombat than Ben Affleck."; Patrick Stayton: "Sorry, friend, but there's a new sheriff in town - a hero whose primary defense is his toughened rear hide and backwards-facing pouch."; Bill Ferrell: "It's just a prototype, but I'm sure we can sell it to other crime fighters. Now give me Catwoman's number!"; and Bear Deardorff: "Dude, I have done the research. 'Wombatman' is NOT legally an infringement on your trademark. Chill."

And the top caption this week is from perennial winner ktulu, his second win this year and twentieth overall! Congratulations, ktulu!

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

CAPTION CONTEST for July 30 - SPECIAL POLITICAL CONVENTION EDITION! I'm taking a risk here, but there needs to be something humorous about this election year. Please keep it CLEAN, and go for FUNNY and CLEVER over mean. (Maybe we'll have two winners, since I don't like either major candidate!) So how would you caption this picture? Comment below!

This is the 3rd remote this week. How many more will be ruined before November?

CAPTION CONTEST RESULTS! It's nice to find that so many of my friends, across the political spectrum, respond to the conventions like I do (a mixture of humor and disgust)! Here are your Honorable Mentions: Alan AJ Irby: "That moment when the only vote you want to cast is for America's Got Talent."; ktulu: "They said the VD commercials I did would only run in foreign countries!"; darph nader: "Every damn channel."; Patrick Stayton: "Hope and change… the channel, for Pete's sake!"; and Kelly Zink: "After the conventions, he was left with a feeling of impending doom. As he switched off the TV, a chill ran across the back of his neck. The shadowy creature rose from behind the couch..."

And your winning caption this week comes from my VM brother Scott Lewis, his first win this year and seventh overall! Congratulations, Scott!

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