The Caption Competition (Now More General[[Now with NO SCOREBOARD]])
Hello, my lovely lovelies, and welcome to the third and also first annual

CAPTION


COMPETITION

This one's going to be a little different then our last two. For one thing, you may have noticed we aren't restricting ourselves to Homestuck and Problem Sleuth anymore! In fact, we'll rarely be doing pictures from those sources at all! If ever! For the rest . . . well . . .

Here's how you play:

1) The judge (more on that later) will post their picture.
2) In response, you, not the judge, will post the wittiest, cleverest, most-heart-wrenching, most-nonsensical, or just general most caption you can.
3) After four days, the judge will repost the picture, and then post the third, second, and first place winners of that round!
4) The first place winner becomes the new judge and posts the new picture! HOWEVER
5) The new judge can only post a picture obtained from a Google image search (or Bing or Yahoo or whatever) in which the keyword or phrase is decided on by the previous judge. This image must be safe for work. You may resize or alter the image if necessary.
6) There is no scoreboard. Honestly, that thing just got monstrous near the end . . .

ANYWHO. Since I'm first judge, I'll pick the first phrase on my own. My first phrase is . . . "Not a Homestuck". And my first picture is . . .

. . . not very good but you would not believe how long it took me to find an actually not Homestuck related picture that wasn't horribly bland and this isn't that great either GO WILD

RE: The (Now More General [[Now With NO SCOREBOARD]]) Caption Competition
I'm confused by the keyword concept. Does that mean at the end of the round you provide a prompt and the winner has to find a picture based on it?

RE: The (Now More General [[Now With NO SCOREBOARD]]) Caption Competition
The judge provides the prompt, which is entered into the search bar of Google images, Bing Images, Yahoo Images, etc. A picture out of those is selected.

I'm Sorry I Thought That Was Obvious

As far as passive-aggressive threats go, I think this is as passive as it gets. "Dust". Even the audience knows that's a pathetic threat...
...no, not the one in the background, though they probably know too.

Man APW it is hard to find images based on that keyword, it's mostly just injuries and pictures of majestic parks. Why couldn't you have actually just said Dust was the keyword, then at least I could have shaken my fist at you in appreciation of the irony.

Willy and his partner were both devastated when they slipped up in the middle of their synchronized swimming routine, a mistake that would surely cost them the medal. Looks like that stupid Norwegian Narwhal team is going to swim away with the gold yet again.

In the end, the war between animal and man was determined to be too costly to both sides - one final challenge between two chosen champions would be the deciding battle of the conflict.

In all fairness, the whale had every right to be pissed. Not only had this silly human invaded his home domain, the one the humans put him in mind you, but he had tried to feed it a salmon! Do you know how incompetent you have to be to feed a whale a SALMON?!
