Hello everybody and welcome back to another crazy caption contest.
The results are in from the nationwide vote and although it was close, Marty’s “sister wives” caption took the win over Sean B’s “preferred to be shot” and Robin’s “shotgun wedding” comments. Congratulations (again!), Marty. You deserve to take the old Wally Wagon out for a victory lap in the La Entrada parking lot. Enjoy.
As for this week’s new picture, you may or may not recognize the subject. Even if you do notice the resemblance, please don’t hold back on his account. He deserves your best. Post your captions in the comments section below and at some point next week we’ll put the whole thing to a vote.
In order to give the people what they want, the brain trust here at alsboy.com has decided to bring the caption contest back.
(Waiting for the applause to die down).
This time around, we are going to let you, the reader, vote for your favorite caption.
Here’s how it will work:
A few days after the picture goes up and we have several worthy caption candidates, I will post a poll at the bottom of the page with the best of the best entries for you to vote on in order to choose a winner for the week.
Basically, I’m planning for the poll to go up and the voting to start by Wednesday afternoon at 5 pm PDT.
So, you have between now and then to think of something to go with this:
I swear that my intentions were to change it from a weekly contest to a bi-weekly one but the fates intervened and conspired to keep its return under wraps for exactly one month.
Welcome back to the little caption contest that could. Rather than waste everyone’s time with yet another filibuster, let’s just get to the winning caption.
1984. Big Brother wished he didn't have to watch. By Marty
Congrats to our second twice-decorated champion Marty on her much-deserved Double U. For your W(in), you’re taking home a lifetime supply of Turtle wax, five pounds of Swedish Fish, and unlimited rides on Stanford’s Marguerite Shuttle. Great work and enjoy.
Here are the runner-ups:
God of Love in the front, party in the back. That’s how Cupid rolls. By Mick
Man, Old Spice commercials sure have changed over the years. By Patrick “Higgy” Higgins
Mary Beth and Billy Bob posing for a prom photo at Ted Nugent High. By JWoo
Props to you, gentlemen.
At long last, I present to you this week’s picture. Good luck.
Hey ya’ll! Sorry about getting this post up later than usual but would you believe me if I told you that I was fairly active this weekend with a trip to my old school for an anniversary event, to the mall for some chapeau shopping, and then up to Vancouver, BC for a little Cuban Canadian salsa dancing? Well, believe what you want but that’s my story and I’m sticking to (most) of it.
Here’s this week’s winner:
Betty was surprisingly calm. She expected her life to flash before her eyes, but the only image she could see was Sparky's face buried in that poodle's ass 5 minutes earlier. - by Matt
Woooooo! Congratulations to Matt on being our first two time winnah. As far as the prizes are concerned, I had to reach out to this blog’s sponsorship partners of yesteryear to ensure that they were truly worthy of a twice-crowned champeen. (And be sure to click on each hyperlink below to get the full effect of each prize). You’ve won a stack of Polaroid camera film from Denevi , a California king-sized waterbed from Ed Barbara at Furniture USA and a guaranteed line of credit courtesy of Paul from the DiamondCenter. Enjoy the stash, Matt.
Also deserving recognition are the runner-ups for this week.

Wait a minute! You’re not Jacob! HELP!! – by Sean B
Howdy folks and welcome back to another edition of this blog’s up and coming weekly featurette: The Calling All Captions caption contest. The assembled panel of judges had our work cut out for us this week choosing the best of the best but that’s why we get paid the big bucks. And the winner is …
Ladies and gentlemen... ...REO Douchewagon! - by Mick
Major league props to Mick for coining THE perfect phrase for this week’s photo. As for what you will be receiving for your winning efforts, we pulled out all the stops and spared no expense on your behalf: A lifetime supply of woodwind reeds from Frank Catalano’s ABC Music in (sunny) San Bruno, a never-ending tray of lumpia pulled right from the oven, and a personalized parking space at the Shell station in Pinole. It should be noted that Pinhole has perennially been voted California’s friendliest town for stranded motorists driving white Chevy Malibus. I betcha didn’t know that, didja?
All that chamber of commerce crap aside, congratulations to Mick for being the top dawg this week!
Here are the runner-ups:
Richard Simmons unveils the Dream Team – by Kevin Connell
The executives at Chess King soon realized that holding an open casting call for their 1989 catalogue was a bad idea, ultimately leading to the retailer’s untimely demise. – by Traci

All right, let’s get to this week’s new picture. Buena suerte.
Whattup, Peeps! (And yes, by Peeps I am referring to those delectable little sugar-coated marshmallow thingies that people seem to have around the house this time of the year. You know you love them. For a little extra holiday fun, try putting a Peep in the microwave. It’ll be the highlight of your day, I swear).
Anyway, welcome back to another caption contest. Since I’ve rambled on enough already, let’s just get to last week’s winner.
Unfortunately, the party planners misconstrued Fat Joe's suggestion to "make it rain." - Ameena El-Bibany

In addition to making your first title defense of the Coveted Caption Contest Crown, you have won the following items: Free California Aggie newspapers for as long as you attend UCD, a lifetime supply of cheese (courtesy of the fine folks at the Milk Farm on highway 80), and the knowledge that after all those times you entered my caption contests in middle school, you have finally made it to the top of the hill. Props once again, Ameena!
