    Caption This! It’s fun and easy: look at the picture, think of an amusing or absurd comment, and put it in a comment to this post. One sample caption is provided below, but you need not emulate it, or pattern your reply after it. You might want to view the full-sized image; click it to open it in the Image Gallery.

    If you’re not familiar with “Caption This” contests, it’s high time you learned. Here are some examples from gossip blogs, gaming blogs, expensive sneaker contests, and even The New Yorker.

    Winner selection and prizes.
    One winning caption will be selected from the comment threads on each article. Selection criteria is up to the sole discretion of site staff, and being funny certainly won’t hurt your chances, but this isn’t necessarily a joke contest. An especially clever or insightful comment can be as effective as a good one liner. There’s no word limit, but it’s a good idea to be as brief and to the point as possible.

    The author of that caption will win one of these. As you can read, the card is identical to the one included in the WWI Paris goodie bag. Each card holds two codes; one that will give you a slot in the ongoing WoW WotLK beta test, and the other that can be redeemed for a Tyrael mini-pet, an ultra-rare WoW pet available exclusively from this card.

    Contest closes at midnight, Sunday, August 24th. Here are the four images:

    Sample caption: “Visit the Tristram spa for some old fashioned relaxation.”

    This one was another hard to decide on, since several were funny and topical. The winner, chosen at semi-random from the top few captions. Because there can never be enough art direction controversy references! This was also one of the later captions added to this post, so all of you who got there first could have beaten him to the joke.

    Second place. As happened in several of these first 4 caption this shots, the funniest ones were not game-related, and thus didn’t win the prize. Though they did win our hearts.
