Bear with me - Thursday August 1 to Wednesday August 7
Posted By: Jessesdad, 07-31-2013, 06:23 PM

Caption Contest

The object of this Challenge is to come up with the most humorous or thoughtful original caption for the displayed photo(s) that will collect the highest number of “likes”.

The Rules:

Submissions can be in any written form (no video or audio files) - caption, limerick, motivational, poem or prose - whatever inspires you to describe the photo or catch attention.

Contestants may submit more than one entry but it must be in a separate post. Important: whether you submit an entry or not, please “like” any posts you feel deserve it!

The Thread Starter is the moderator and must post an original photo at the start of the thread. Respondents have 1 week to submit entries, after which time the number of “likes” will be totalled to determine a winner.

In case of a tie the Thread Starter will choose one to break the tie. The winner of that contest will be notified by PM by the current Thread Starter/Contest Host and will become responsible for posting the next original work to be Captioned.

The winner for any reason can decline by PM to the Host. Then the second most liked entrant will be designated to Host the Contest and so on. Good luck to all entrants, thank you for entering, Now let the fun begin.

This will run from Thursday August 1 to Wednesday August 7

As we seem addicted to anthropomorphism here in caption land, here's another chance to put our thoughts in the mouth of a Sun-Bear. Not that his mouth isn't full already.

Be clever, be left-field, be witty, be poetic. Have fun.

And to get the creative juices flowing....

Furry Bear

If I were a bear,
And a big bear too,
I shouldn’t much care
If it froze or snew;
I shouldn’t much mind
If it snowed or friz—
I’d be all fur-lined
With a coat like his!

For I’d have fur boots and a brown fur wrap,
And brown fur knickers and a big fur cap.
I’d have a fur muffle-ruff to cover my jaws,
And brown fur mittens on my big brown paws.
With a big brown furry-down up to my head,
I’d sleep all the winter in a big fur bed.

Who's Been Eating My forage?
Goldilocks and the Three Bears revisited…

Baby Bear goes downstairs and sits in his small chair at the table. He looks into his small, empty bowl.
“Who's been eating my forage?” he squeaks.

Papa Bear arrives at the big table and sits in his big chair. He looks into his big bowl, and it is also empty.
“Who's been eating my forage?” he roars.

Momma Bear puts her head through the serving hatch from the kitchen and yells, “For Pete's sake, how many times do we have to go through this?”

“It was Momma Bear who got up first, it was Momma Bear who woke everyone in the house, it was Momma Bear who made the coffee, it was Momma Bear who unloaded the dishwasher from last night, and put everything away, it was Momma Bear who went out in the cold early morning air to fetch the newspaper, it was Momma Bear who set the table, it was Momma Bear who put the cat out, cleaned the litter box, and filled the cat's water and food dish, and, now that you've decided to drag your sorry bear-butts downstairs, and grace Momma Bear's kitchen with your grumpy presence, listen good, cause I'm only going to say this one more time...”

“I haven’t made the forage yet!”
