Introducing "Caption Me Thursday" (& Win a Prize)

I like to snap random photos of things I find amusing. I've been trying to find some use for them and I think I finally have it: Introducing "Caption Me Thursday," a new weekly event on this blog where I post an odd photo and you give it a caption. Here's how it works.
 What's your caption for this photo?

What's your caption for this photo?

I like to snap random photos of things I find amusing. I've been trying to find some use for them and I think I finally have it: Introducing "Caption Me Thursday," a new weekly event on this blog where I post an odd photo and you give it a caption. How it works:

  • Each Thursday I'll post a photo here on this blog.
  • You come up with a clever caption and post it in the comments section.
  • Best caption (picked by me or a celebrity guest judge) will be announced in my free Writer's Digest eNewsletter, which comes out the following Tuesday.

Also, because this is the inaugural Caption Me Thursday post, I'm going to give away a free copy of Writing Basics to my favorite caption.

Good luck everyone! Can't wait to read the captions.

WINNERS ANNOUNCED

It's with pleasure that I announce the winners of the Inaugural "Caption Me Thursday." They are:

travisb7 — "Not only had she been a good wife, but Sara was recyclable, too!"
bjamison71 — "You’re throwing your wife away!"

Thanks again to everyone who participated and look for more of these in the future.
