      Just a question: was this picture solely chosen for the number of owl-related puns it would produce?

      Oh, and you should disable starring on these posts because it gives certain people an unfair advantage.

      • Oh, and you should disable starring on these posts because it gives certain people an unfair advantage.

        See elsewhere in this thread, re: arbitrary and capricious.

        More seriously, starring seems like a somewhat reasonable filter on caption quality, and anyway we'd have to build a feature for disabling it on certain posts. To me, that sounds suspiciously like work.

          • Yeah; it's a known bug. About once a month I set out to fix it, realize it's more complicated than I initially thought, and then get distracted by something that actually costs us money.

        • The Doctor Doge / about 9 years ago / 1

          If someone stars a post, it moves up, and people usually don't take the time to read the entire list of captions looking for good ones.

          • Plenty of folks here at SFE read all the comments, especially when judging the caption contests. Most of us simply monitor the RSS feed for the comments, so we see everything come through (even the ones that need to be deleted due to inappropriate content). We do try our best to be fair and give everyone the same chance on these, regardless of number of stars a caption receives.

      Since the one with the most upvotes is always the winner, can we keep upvoting this one to ensure that word is in the winning quote.

Jake: I mean, the fella's name on first base. Owl3: Who. Jake: The fella playing first base for St. Louis? Owl4: Who. Jake: The guy on first base. Owl5: Who is on first! Jake: Well, what are ya asking me for? Owl1: I'm not asking you. I'm telling you. Who is on first. Jake: I'm asking you who's on first. Owl2: That's the man's name. Jake: That's who's name?

  • Member #456272 / about 9 years ago / 3

    A crack pot team was assembled at SparkFun to finally determine ‘How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?”. Although Jake was under qualified, he was not going to let this opportunity slip through fingers. . . Jake, stay still and ‘ho ho’ softly. . .

  • Member #350592 / about 9 years ago / 2

    Huh? My story? Okay. It was never easy for me. I was born a poor owl child. I remember the days, sittin' on the tree with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi...

  • TheFoo / about 9 years ago * / 2

    The instructions said to use an awl to make a small hole in the tubing. These DIY kits can be so damn hard sometimes.....

  • I may have misread caption with column....... have fun reading

    COLUMN: After sparkfun was founded in 2003 the owls around Boulder Colorado developed a perticular liking to red objects, this caused issues for jake in inventory who seemed to always be finding stock missing, at first he wrote it off under the "Petes popular peculiar projects". But when Pete accidentally tethered himself to his computer for a week attempting to "Aquire MOAR power" following in the steps of the inhouse hackers(Sean and Tara) and stock kept disappearing, he decided to set out and find where all the stock was going, notably the redboards were especially popular for the thef. So there he was in inventory, on night watch looking out for the burglars and he heard a strange scratching noise it sounded like claws. So he called out "who is there" and then the strangest thing happened an echo developed..... whooooo whoooo whooo whoo who. He could have sworn that the acoustic engineers had confirmed that there was no echo in inventory, and so he moved out it sounded like the thief was just one rack over. He rounded the corner and found... 6 owls sitting there helping themselves to the red-boards. They all of a sudden froze, Jake froze and then all hell broke lose. Owls and red-boards were flying everywhere, the owls flew and jake ran and owls flew and jake ran and it was rained red-boards. Jake tripped....reached out...... and caught hold of the "Oh fudge" and called out an unheard "Oh fudge" as the alarm blared and clamped his hands over his ears. The "Oh fudge" alarm did have its advantages, it herded all the owls towards the foyer. This gave Jake an idea, he raced up the stairs pulled a quarter out of pants and inserted it into the N.A.D.S, and then Jake entered his happy place, 50seconds was all he needed. Owls were falling left right and center and 23seconds later it was all quiet once more. 6 dead owls lay upon the floor. Jake commissioned the owls to be stuffed and placed upon the Sparkfun parapets as warning to any further owls who might try to steal any redboards. The owls were then passed onto the marking department to mounted.

    CAPTION: And so here is a picture of a proud Jake after having caught, killed and stuffed the owls before they were mounted

    After seeing the original Clash of the Titans, Jake couldn't help but immediately get to work on his fully functional Bubo replica. Unfortunately for him, nobody at the office understood the reference, and they just assumed he was really into owls.

    Although Jake's story happened much earlier than Tarzan's, being raised by owls never really inspired any screenplays. As such, Jake, the owl-man is still an unknown nocturnal forest folk hero.

  • dorght / about 9 years ago / 2

    Owl pellets make fun, educational, packing peanuts too!

  • Ever since he was three Jake had always dreamed of being an owl.

  • trevor / about 9 years ago / 2

    I remember saying something like 'I feel a bit lightheaded; maybe you should take over . . .' And suddenly there was a terrible roar all around us and the office was full of what looked like huge owls.

    After Jake told everyone that he was tired of the way things were running at Sparkfun and that he was forming his own parliament, it was quite a surprise to find that he just wanted his own group of owls. (A group of owls is called a parliament.)

    2. Sparkfun's new products for the week. Jake not included.
    3. Sparkfun introduces a new line of cutting edge UAV's. Batteries not included.
    4. Jake contemplates, "Why do they keep giving me these owls instead of a paycheck?"
    5. Jake has a brilliant cost-saving idea: express delivery of small parts by owl.
    6. After years of suffering, counting tiny parts in the musty basement stockroom, Jake turns his coworkers into owls and contemplates his future.
    7. Jake manages to snag the latest DARPA drones--what he won't do for Sparkfun customers.

  • gstein / about 9 years ago / 1

    So that is where you guys put the mice from Inventory. You do realize you can't eat them, right?

  • Inflat-a-bird: Migrate, or what? Puffkin: Hoo's that? Howland Oates: Is it an egg-stremely large rodent? Jake: I'm not talon... Eyeballs: You better pellet to us right now... Charles Manson: I've got no eyed ear what you guys are looking at. (cannot read name): I'm the only sane one here, the roost of them are nuts!

    Yes, grasshopper, they may be nearly eternal, but a "wise old owl" needs to be both real and alive.

    No, it was the 5 doctors, not the 5 whos.

    I've hidden the backups of the WHOIS databases underneath.

    New Product: Motion sensing death ray owls. Once activated, these adorable owls will vaporize anything that moves with their sparkly eye lasers. Authentic 270 degree head rotation. If encountered, your best bet is to try to blend in. AA batteries not included. Jake also not included.

    It's all riding on the last question (drum roll, please)... "Why does Charles Manson (2nd Owl from Right) have no eyes??

    • trevor / about 9 years ago / 2

      Well, if there were ever an epic showdown between Chelsea the Destroyer and Charles Manson, it wouldn't surprise me if Charlie lost his eyes. Just sayin'.

    He was told that he would stand out more if he surrounded himself with birdbrains. In a way, it was true.

  • Jake was the only one the owls let into their posse, maybe it was because he had brought his pet mouse to work that day.

  • A wise old owl sat on an oak the more he saw the less he spoke the less he spoke the more he heard why can't we all be like that bird

  • Robert16 / about 9 years ago / 1

    I don't always hang out with owls - but when I do, I wonder what they taste like.

    Jake, being behind in his email, did not get the "Dress Like A Party Owl Day" memo. Nevertheless, he tried his best to fit in anyway.

  • Ichbinjoe / about 9 years ago * / 1

    Which one doesn't belong?

    Thats right! The third owl from the left doesn't belong because its wearing a hat.
