  • Retired military

    THanks all.

  • Brian Brandt

    I guess you couldn’t give yourself 1st place with “Waddya mean “MORE cowbell?”, but you deserved it.

  • yetanotherjohn

    Thanks Sarah. I may be a lowly sixth, but at least I’m not Rodney Dill.

    • …at least I didn’t blast out a hundred captions and only end up with sixth place….. Bazinga!

      • Golly…

        Quantity has a quality all it’s own.
        One of the reasons that I do so many captions, besides the fact that I can, is you never know which caption will hit. I liked “It’s not the years, but the frequent flier mileage” caption, but apparently I was alone in this. If you had asked me to predict the most likely captions to medal, the one Sarah chose wouldn’t have been in the top ten.

        • Quantity may have a certain value, but I wouldn’t deem it to be quality. I am certainly not adverse to multiple entries, of various or different slants on a topic, to catch the whims of the judge, but I don’t blather out every possible combination of every past caption I can think of either. I didn’t have many ideas I liked to pursue for this photo, maybe the next one will be better suited to my way of thinking. A last minute entry got me in the honorable mention, but I wouldn’t have been too surprised if I missed out entirely on this contest.

  • Thanks, Sarah. I just wanted to say that Mr. Walken would never really kill that guy!
    (He’s making me say this!)

    Congrats everyone… these were some great captions!! and I think that United should also get kudos…. without them, there wouldn’t have been as many captions…. You all did a great job!!!

  • Mary Gehman

    Thanks for 6th! Once again, surprised to place anywhere! Hope you all had a great Easter/Passover! God Bless!

  • Thanks Sarah. I didn’t have much to offer for this one.

    I liked Mary Gehman’s and karl_lembke’s

    • Mary Gehman

      Thank you!

    I take every opportunity that presents itself to point out that United involuntarily bumped my mother and her new husband from their honeymoon flight to Hawaii. Their compensation was one $7.00 meal voucher in an airport where the least expensive sandwich was $14.00. Yes, I’m a bit salty about it still. I do not fly United.
