For the image in the upper left corner:

Caption #4 Bridget choked back the tears and consoled herself with eating marshmallows off her fingers while Stan and his conjoined twin sister hobbled out of her life forever. In the years to come she would suffer a pang of lost love whenever she read of their triumphs on the 3 legged race circuit

Caption #1. There is just something about a “living flame” dress that makes me laugh.

Oh, man it is kind of unfair to number 1. By the time I got to 5, I was laughing my head off.
After reconsidering:
Caption# 2.

Number 4!

Caption #4 for sure. Muchos amusement.

Of those, I like #5 best.

I tried to think of something for picture 15 along the lines of “Tina vowed never again to eat burritos before bedtime,” but I didn’t until now. So there. :)

caption #4 is brilliant!

I vote for #5!

number 5, definitely!

#5, totally. 4 was also good but too long.

Am I really the only one who thinks #1 is the best?


No caption for nose-bleed kid!? I vote for #5!



#4 without doubt! It’s a whole story! :)

Caption 4 gets my vote. Bitter and (with the marshmallows) sweet.

clearly number 5

Caption #4 , but caption 5 is good too—i’ll stick with #4

#5 for sure!


Unrelated, except coincidentally, perhaps, I was just reading a New Yorker article on the Stanford/Bing Nursery School Marshmallow Kids experiment…somehow this just made #4 even better than it already is.

Don’t eat the marshmallow…

Number 5, since you ask.

No.5 = hilarious

#5, hands down.


4, no question!

not the usual beautiful design we’ve come to expect.

Gotta be #4, rockin’ the vote!

#2 very cute funny!

#4 is the funniest!

Caption #3 “Alice soon realized that creating a human cigar, did not create the desired effect she had hoped for.” MOST DEF! some funny business :D
