June 12 ... June 18, 2017
Posted By: jumbleview, 06-12-2017, 05:59 AM

The contest will run from June 12 through June 18, 2017. Votes will be counted thereafter.

NB: VOTE ("like") FOR SOMEONE WHETHER OR NOT YOU ARE AN ENTRANT....!!

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. Submit by replying to the thread. Contestants may submit more than one entry but it must be in a separate post. Important: Even if you do not submit an entry, please “like” any posts you feel deserve it as this is how the winner is chosen. And if you DO submit an entry, please also find an entry that you like from among your competitors' efforts and "like" that one as well.

The "thread starter" is the moderator and must post an original photo at the start of the thread. In case of a tie the moderator will choose one to break the tie. After determination of the contest's winner, that winner will be notified ASAP after by the current Thread Starter/Contest Host and will become responsible for posting the next original work to be captioned. Enter often, vote more often. and most important: Have fun !

We are in the middle of the contest today. While all captions so far are very good and laughable I am worry about absence of votes. Toss of coin will not help here. I probably may play some version of Russian Roulette, but taken into consideration California ten days cooling periods, the earliest I can take the revolver in my possession would be end of next week. Do you want to wait for winner declaration that long?
Please, vote. And of course more captions are welcome.

We usually wait until the last day so that all entries are in.

" One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn't belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the others
By the time I finish my song? "

[ don't tell Bert and Ernie I borrowed the song ]

Now "dummy contest" officially ends. Indeed on the photo you see winners of the Diamond Peak sky resort dummy contest - these who traveled longest distance downhill without breaking apart. (Lady on the right is not a winner: she just rests after downhill run). We have eight equally good captions, but still I have to declare a winner of our contest. And the winner is WPRESTO. Please take our congratulation and responsibility to host the next round.
