December Caption Contest

2015's not over yet.

Favorited Favorite 0

Whoa hi, hey guys. Welcome back! We're struggling with the first Monday after our long holiday weekend, but then we remembered we haven't done a caption contest this month yet! So here, without further ado, is the last caption contest of 2015:

You know the rules; you love 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, January 1 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 gladiator battle of wits will go home with a shiny new SparkFun Stepoko motor driver board! Now get to it!

    And then the iconoclasts attempted to add the hairy crab dance to the Festivus celebration. The heretics were rejected by the women. Unable to breed, they died out and orthodoxy prevailed.
