I got an issue with the winner...

If his "father," Earth Sr. has been killed, what planet is the car driving on? Also, whatever happen to "Mother Earth?" And if the Earth did somehow sire a son, who is the mother? And wouldn't this caption work better if the vehicle was an SUV?

(Maybe I AM over thinking this but if anyone responds please resist the temptation to metion Uranus.


Well, it is supposed to be the worst possible caption. So, your issues seem to just reinforce my decision...

Where's mine?

Hey, Jess, I wasn't thinking about Uranus until you brought it up!

Crazer Caption: "That thing is so crazy I just crapped my pants. And I mean CRAPPED my pants."

Sweet. Will this new award be recurring?

I am vindicated! Finally, an Honorable Mention!
