Write a caption, win a prize


“And the award for ‘Most ironic t-shirt ever’ goes to…”.

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 of Greg Packer, everyone’s favorite professional line sitter taken at Apple’s NYC Cube during (well, 100 hours before, actually) the iPhone’s launch last year. If we think it’s the most clever, 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 Thursday (Feb 21st) 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… The D WITH “You’re laughing now, but just wait two months when these are impossible to find and you can’t get your hands on one of these for only $599 like I’m about to pay. Then let’s see who’s laughing…” Nice one, The D! (Did anyone ever hear if Greg actually bought one?). You’re gift certificate is on it’s way!

    This marks the bottom of the “RANDOM MAC CHICK” barrel.
    The internet has become self-aware and is launching its assault against mankind, beginning with this fatal “RANDOM MAC CHICK” error.

    This one’s a stretch (pun intended):
    “I’m going to pick up another dozen nanos while I’m in there… the stupid screens keep cracking on me…”

  22. The D says:

    Apple’€™s SVP of Marketing Phil Schiller said today in response to the nano screen-cracking issue “…this issue has affected less than 1/10 of 1 percent of the total iPod nano units that we’€™ve shipped, which roughly accounts for every nano Greg Packer has purchased and subjected to the clothing on any part of his body.”
