Write a caption, win a prize

[THANK YOU, WE HAVE A WINNER – KEVIN T WITH ” We should move along… these aren’t the ports we’re looking for…” YES, IT WAS SLIGHTLY OUT OF ORDER, BUT HE WAS THE FIRST WITH THE IDEA.]

Mr. Jobs is most displeased with your apparent lack of progress. …

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. If we think it’s the most clever, we’ll send you off a $20 iTunes gift certificate.

This picture was taken from what I think may be the best flickr photostream of all time, and if you have even a shred of geek in you, you need to check it out.

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 Friday (May 15th) at 11:59PM 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).
