Contest Winners

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!"
Marie

Second place, $5 prize:
"Mom, Dad... This is Jeff. We met in Chem class three weeks ago and.... we're getting MARRIED!!"
Molly

Third place, HF magnet:
"Let's say we settle this on the runway...Han-Solo"
Bex
(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.

I can't say that I have wit, but now that Ben Stiller guy, he's funny.

I think the rest of us found the amusement of the other entries rewarding enough =) This was a great contest, and I hope you'll host another in the future!

I love the pillowfighting clones! You are a woman of many talents, some disturbing.

I greatly enjoy all of the samples I've read (15 min. worth) on your site.
Previously I regarded my behavior as eccentric, but I so enjoy your "flakey" humor that I'm going to begin presuming to describe my humor as flakey!
My dau. Marie won your StormTrooper contest. Her humor, at www.asittingonagate.blogspot.com, is more sedate than yours, I'd say.
Best wishes.

Help! My dear father is following me through the blogopshere, crassly advertising for me on other people's blogs! I love ya, Dad, but I'm calling in the Storm Troopers. And not the pink ones.
