Write the best caption, win a prize!

July 19, 2007 | Caption contest


Write the winning caption for this photograph and win my new favorite CD (yeah, it’s that good) … or a book I’m re-reading … or something. (Yeah, just kidding on that last one.)

Back story: This little Santa has been in the street at one of my regular stoplights for about a week. The first time I saw it, I said out loud, “Santa is in the street.” Then my kids wanted to know why Santa was in the street. Today, they wanted to know why I stopped to take a picture of Santa in the street. Of course, I had no good explanation that translates well to 3- and 4-year-olds.

But your caption doesn’t have to translate well to them. It just has to make me laugh.

Ready? Go.

    Nose-down on the center stripe

    S. Claus found out Thursday in Greenland just how dangerous it is to be riding herd on an alternative fuel source. Kicked off his sleigh by petroleum pilferers, Claus discovered to his dismay that methane from dried reindeer poop gets better sky-miles to the gallon and is worth more than plain old petrol. Police were looking for black market entrepreneurs wearing ExxonMobil uniforms and gas masks who absconded with Rudolph and friends. Citizens seeing these smelly miscreants are urged to call police and stay up-wind.

    Despite his appreciation for air travel, Santa still loves the feel of the open road.

  7. Tracy Thompson Says:

    “Yes, Virginia, there IS a Santa Claus.”

    Poor old Saint Nick…Hits the skids, after being
    sued unmercifully by RIAA, Sony, and Super
    NES for DMCA and copyright infringement on
    the elves’ own magic version of the games, software
    and music players.

    Drunk fucking reindeer.

  10. Tracy Thompson Says:

    I wish to amend my caption submission. It should read:

    “Yes, Virginia, there IS a Santa Claus, and that’s what he looks like. Now go get mommy’s gin.”

    There’s Nothing in the Middle of the Road but Yellow Stripes and Dead Armadillos and Drunk Santas (sorry, Mr. Hightower)

  12. Matthew Says:

    Santa, after a hard night of partying, forgets the golden rule… Don’t eat yellow snow.

  13. Devra Says:

    Taking his cue from from those on the naughty list, Santa tries doing a line.

  14. Becky Says:

    This just in …

    “S..t, they looked like golden tinsels from farther up … “

  15. Bob Says:

    Santa immediately regretted his decision to accept the lowest bidder on his new sleigh, and he vowed never to do business with Halliburton again.

  16. Bård Says:

    Det er da grenser for hvor langt en så feig (yellow), liten nisse kan gå.

  17. Bård Says:

    I thought I’d take a taxi as Rudolp and his gang are at Bahamas on vacation off season. I just wonder why these yellow cab’s are so darn narrow and low to the ground.

    F…ing global warming!!! You can fry your own piss on this pavement.
