Bears, If You Are Unable To Use A Laptop, Please Vote Via Roar.

May 26, 2012

Humor

Oh, man, I may have to do this caption thing more often.  The responses this week were just fantastic.  I almost couldn’t bear to eliminate any of them, so bear with me if yours isn’t among the finalists!  I also suspect you’ll have a bear of a time choosing from among them!

Bear.

But the time has come to put aside childish bear-related puns, and vote from the finalists.  So, here, again is the photo, and then please take a moment to vote, and check out the winner from last week’s question:

And as for last week’s question, of what’s the worst pick-up line you know, it was some tough competition, but in the end you voted for (and then, if you’re like me, felt the need to go disinfect): *Lick fingers, touch your shirt, then say*: “wanna come back to my place and change out of those wet clothes?” as provided by Natasia Rose, who, if she learned this line from experience has more than earned her slot as my featured blogger of the week! So please take a moment to check out Natasia’s site. But if you’re going to flirt, I’d bring your A-game.

    Betweeen reading your post, clicking the past and current caption contest, featured blogger, voting, seeing results of my vote, and whatnot, I lost my way, ended up becoming a judge at the latest Toddlers and Tiaras cometition (Mar-Leigh won Ultimate Grand Supreme), and couldn’t find my way back without the aid of a GPS. But I’m back. B Man, you have created a veritible Disney World of a blog site.

      The funny thing is it started off as an idea for something simple I could throw up on weekends. Something fun and easy. Now it’s this multi-stage operation with polls and links and widgets… I’m exhausted! But people seem to be enjoying it, so I’m happy for the evolution.

    I’ve been laughing over Katy’s caption since I first read it!

    They are all so good I had a hard time choosing, but eventually “this one’s too soft” won out.

      A friend of mine emailed me his submission of “When I said I was hung like a bear, I wasn’t – technically – lying” but refused to officially enter it. “This one’s too soft,” I think, fills the gap left by that omission nicely.

    I can’t believe I made the cut! Thanks so much for the chance to win! I need to start campaigning. I’ll make posters, buttons…..

    Belated congrats to Natasia Rose on being this week’s featured blogger! I have to agree that her entry is a doozy of a pick-up line. And I’m sure B-Man’s blog traffic will see an uptick now that his readers aren’t forced to look at this awkward gap-mouthed kid with a cowlick anymore.

    That picture completely creeps me out! Why, why must you keep subjecting me to creepy Victorian photos? Don’t you know that they give me nightmares?

      By the way, these caption entries might be among the best caption entries I’ve ever read in the blogosphere.

        Yes, yes– they are all fantastic and all…sure.

        But the best you’ve ever read in the blogosphere? (gasp!) Do I mean nothing to you anymore, Angie? yes? Fine. They are the best captions, dammit. Great, I have captionitis now. I will never enter another caption, too much pressure.

        • Angie Z. Says:

          Hey, I still remember the greatest caption of all time, that being your musical chairs one over at GG’s blog. And then there was the Santa Claus taking online classes to be a refrigerator repairmen that got no love. I still can’t get over that injustice.

            ….sigh….those days are gone. Long gone. Never to come back again. There are too many good captions out there now.

              I don’t know that I’ll ever accomplish what I did with my “kittens in a briefcase” entry. And it was never even picked as a finalist. I can’t get over this. I must learn to move on, but my heart just won’t let me.

              • She's a Maineiac Says:

                I know. THAT was the best caption ever imagined by man, woman or child in the history of the universe. Such a shame, really.

                (I just left three very odd captions on GG’s…mua ha ha!)

                  That’s right; that’ll teach him.

                • She's a Maineiac Says:

                  I have commented so much on Paul’s blog that I am in the entire box of recent comments. woowee!

                • Angie Z. Says:

                  That is super. That makes me want to do a print screen.

                • She's a Maineiac Says:

                  It’s the pinnacle of my blogging career. I can retire now.

                • Angie Z. Says:

                  I’ve lost the ability to reply to this thread. It was disabled by WordPress with error code #3435634: “You are probably a serial killer.”

                  B-man, no Real World? 90210, pffft. Who cares about that soap opera. If you’ve seen one velvet choker necklace, you’ve seen them all. But The Real World? It was like a sociology experiment. It tore down walls. It was like Kumbaya on drugs. Or “the ganja”, as Darla says.

              • She's a Maineiac Says:

                Perhaps you could construct a caption referring to Taft stuck in a tub? Perhaps I can keep replying to this thread so that I can drive B-man mad? Or make it so small you can’t read it anymore??

                • Angie Z. Says:

                  Oh, are we on B-Man’s blog? With this new WordPress notification set-up, I can reply without even knowing “where” I am. Sort of spooky, huh.

                  Sorry, B-Man. I haven’t been around to read blogs lately so all these comments will make up for the ones I didn’t make on your other posts.

                • She's a Maineiac Says:

                  Wait a sec–this isn’t Facebook??

                • Angie Z. Says:

                  No, it’s not. I think we’ve discovered a 4th dimension here. I think this is where Ryan Seacrest lives.

                • She's a Maineiac Says:

                  Oh, I see. So you really mean the third circle of hell?

                • Angie Z. Says:

                  Oh, good point. I forgot about the whole Satan disguised as a media mogul thing.

                  How many comment replies are we at now? Let’s help B-Man set a new record.

                • She's a Maineiac Says:

                  I am convinced Seacrest is a cyborg sent from the future to kill us all.

                • Angie Z. Says:

                  Indeed, death by reality show. Now I think I need to Quantum Leap back two decades and destroy MTV’s The Real World.

                • She's a Maineiac Says:

                  Hmm. Yes, the root of all evil. I do believe that’s where it all began. Someone must destroy Puck. Maybe bring back Scott Bakula. May the force be with you.

                • Angie Z. Says:

                  Puck? He was mostly harmless. The worst he ever did was pick his scabs and then stick his hand in the communal peanut butter jar. I was more worried about Rachel.

                • She's a Maineiac Says:

                  Oh, you’re right. And let’s not forget about that grungy Andre. I bet he smoked the ganja. Plus, you can never trust a man with better hair than you.

                • Angie Z. Says:

                  Andre! Hilarious — I laughed out loud at “I bet he smoked the ganja” and I rarely laugh out loud at anything I read, no matter how funny.

                • She's a Maineiac Says:

                  I wish you could hear the sound I made when I read about Puck and the communal peanut butter jar. It was kind of like a high-pitched squeal mixed with a cackling hyena. And I rarely do that either.

                • Angie Z. Says:

                  Just reading Puck’s name in your previous response brought out a response from me that sounded like peanut butter being slathered against a scabby hand.

                  So I’m waiting for B-Man to jump in now and say “Can’t you freaks take your conversation off-line for the love of all things holy and pure in the blogosphere?!” Or something similar to that.

                • Angie Z. Says:

                  By the way, if there happens to be a suggestion box, Mr. B, I would humbly suggest you write a blog post about tangents. And you can chart how people can go from discussing blog caption contests to rehashing very specific, very disgusting details from ancient episodes of The Real World.

                • She's a Maineiac Says:

                  What’s really cool is not only am I all over Paul’s blog, but now this one. All I need is to hijack a third one and it’s like winning the triple crown.

                • She's a Maineiac Says:

                  I think that’s why we haven’t heard from him yet. He’s off writing a scathing commentary on terrible post hijacks. Or he’s watching the Real World’s first season to try and remember what Andre’s grunge band name was. Hint: Reigndance

                • The Byronic Man Says:

                  I think you two have had enough. I’m calling you a taxi.

                  And do you know I’ve never seen a single episode of The Real World? True story. Nor Beverly Hills, 90120. Does that mean I missed the 90’s, or was out embracing it?

                  Discuss.

                • She's a Maineiac Says:

                  I am shocked, Mr B. Are you going to tell us next that you never played Super Mario Brothers until your eyes melted? You have missed so much.

                  I have never seen Beverly Hills either. I agree with Angie, Luke Perry wearing a velvet choker necklace doesn’t do it for me.

                • pegoleg Says:

                  I’ve never seen Beverly Hills 90210. How about the Beverly Hillbillies? Can we get all snarky and clever on that – hoo, dat Jethro, waddup with that 6th grade education shiz? Word.

                • She's a Maineiac Says:

                  Word? Dat? waddup? Shiz? I have no clue what you’re talking about here, Pegnacious.

                • pegoleg Says:

                  dangnabbit! Time to make the Urban Dictionary my go-to instead of Merriam-Webster.

    What is wrong with the people doing the voting here??? I vote for the very best and far and away the most clever… and what???… it’s the lowest vote getter! Pretty in Pink all the way!

    p.s. I definitely approve of the Blogger of the Week!
