Fifty seven contest entries later, I'm pleased to announce the winner of the Storm Trooper Caption Contest. The challenge was to provide a funny caption for this photo (click to enlarge): I'd love to tell you that you're all winners and I adore you all equally, but I don't feel like dishing out $1,140 just to stroke bruised egos. Thanks anyway to everyone who played - I was laughing my rear off all week as the entries came in.
Without further ado...
First place, $20 prize:
"Let's invite Lord Vader to our slumber party! We can watch Mean Girls and swap Imperial secrets!"
Second place, $5 prize:
"Mom, Dad... This is Jeff. We met in Chem class three weeks ago and.... we're getting MARRIED!!"
Third place, HF magnet:
"Let's say we settle this on the runway...Han-Solo"
(Yes, this caption is only funny if you have seen the movie Zoolander. Lucky for Bex, it's my favorite movie!)
Honorable Mentions, a fuzzy feel good:
"Star Wars Episode VII: The Buddy System" Melanie
"First annual storm trooper take your daughter to work day" Patrick
"Lead me, guide me, walk beside me..." Melissa (it's a Mormon thing)
"The newest accessory for fashion conscious moms! Never again scrape drool, vomit or peanut butter and jelly off your dry-clean only clothes." Nancy
Marie, Molly and Bex, I worship your wit! Send me an email at sarahflakeATgmailDOTcom with an address I can send your prize to.
