You thought we forgot about these, didn't you?

Favorited Favorite 0

It's been quite a while since we did a caption contest, so it's time to dust off your funny pants and get ready to be hilarious! First, the rules:

  • Leave your funniest clean caption to the photo in the comments section below. We reserve the right to delete captions that we deem inappropriate. We’re not too stingy, but try to keep it moderately PG-13.
  • Captions submitted any other way besides in the comment section will not be accepted! That means do not use the feedback form!
  • Captions will be accepted from the moment this post goes live until Friday, March 13th at 10 a.m. Mountain Time.
  • A crack team of humor experts will pick the winner and we will announce it next week.

Here's your photo:

Alright - feeling good? Feeling funny? Let's hear it in the comments section below!
