November Caption Contest

Just gonna leave this right here...

Favorited Favorite 0

Hello! Here we are, closing in on the last month of the year, and what better way to usher in December than with some crowdsourced humor? If this isn’t your first caption rodeo you know the rules, but here they are again:

  • 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, though you may really, really want to.
  • Captions will be accepted from the moment this post goes live until Friday, November 20 at 10 a.m. Mountain Time.
  • A crack team of humor experts will pick the winner and we will announce it shortly thereafter.

The winner of this month's caption crown will take home a new SAMD21 Dev Breakout AND the SAMD21 Mini Breakout! Without further ado:
