Create A Caption

New, comments

To break the monotony a bit of reporting news, posting analysis, etc. about the Orlando Magic, I want to have some fun and create a little contest for the Third Quarter Collapse community today. As the title of the post indicates, I want to see which 3QC member can come up with the best caption to the picture below. 3QC has some pretty funny people here, so I think this will be a diversion everyone enjoys. 

(Insert caption here)

I'm sure everyone here is familiar with a "create a caption" competition, but in case someone here doesn't know what this type of contest is ... basically a picture is provided and you, the reader, attempt to come up with a quick sentence describing what's occurring in the photo. The line can be funny, stupid, witty, etc. 

 

I'll be a judge but I like to have another collective voice determining the winner, that way there's a bit of a consensus among the community. What I prefer for everyone here to do is this ... if you like the caption a fellow member has come up with, "recommend" it. That will be 'your vote', in essence. If you don't know how to "recommend" a comment, go to the comment you like, click on 'actions', then click on 'rec'. You can "recommend" multiple captions/comments, if you want. 

 

So for a quick recap.


- Write a quick sentence describing what's occurring in the photo. 

- If you like a caption/comment that's been written, "recommend" it.

- After you "recommend" a caption/comment, write something (like +1, for example) to indicate you like the sentence a 3QC member has written. 

- The contest will last 24 hours, so whichever caption/comment gets the most recommendations, wins. In case of a tie, I'll determine the winner. 

 

Let the contest begin!
