Write a caption, win a prize - Macenstein

Write a caption, win a prize

[Thank you WE HAVE A WINNER! This contest is now closed. Congrats to Faithful Macenstein reader Dick Nick who won with “At least I got the two important things in the divorce.” There were actually quite a few truly good captions this time around, and many variations on certain themes, so this was indeed a hard choice to make.]

Just admit it, you lost your ball.

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.

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 (Oct 30th) 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).
