UPDATE: We have a winner! Congrats to mftkoehler for their rare non-electronics related caption win:

See the invisible dentist for quick, pain-free treatment!

Your giant tactile switch is well-deserved.

End Update

We're gonna be honest; our original blog post fell through at the last minute – but our scheduling pain is your prize-winning gain! It's been a while since we've done one of these (like over a year?), but we haven't forgotten how. Have you? HERE IT IS:

It's not our fault Shawn's face is made for caption contests.

Here are the classic caption contest rules, in case you did forget:

  • 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 11:59 p.m. Mountain Time on Monday, March 5.
  • A crack team of humor experts will pick the winner, we will announce it on this post next Tuesday and contact the winner directly.

Sure sure sure, but what's your incentive? Oh, just one of these GIANT TACTILE SWITCHES. Honestly, we need to give some away so we stop playing with them and do our jobs. Help us do our jobs.
