Write a caption, win a prize


Early MacBook Air prototypes didn’t quite cut it.

Think you’re funny enough to be the next Margaret Cho? Well, now’s your chance to prove it to the world. Write your best caption for the above photo, and if we think it’s the funniest, we’ll send you off a $20 iTunes gift certificate.

The contest is open to everyone in the US (sorry, iTunes won’t let us buy gift certificates to non-US accounts), and runs until Saturday (Feb 2nd) at 9PM EST. You can enter more than once if you are feeling “Carrot Top“-prolific. Good luck.
(Oh, and be sure to put in your e-mail, or else we won’t be able to contact you).

[AND THE WINNER IS… KEITH J WITH “The new, more powerful iMac. It’s now quicker to get jobs off your desk.” Congratulations Keith! It was a very clever play on words, and steered clear of the more obvious (yet hilarious) sexual aspect to the picture. You’re gift certificate is on it’s way!

Honorable mention goes to “We wants it, we needs it. Must have the precious.”, but whoever wrote that did not include their e-mail or name, so remember that for next time folks! ]
