YES! It's HERE.
The day you have been waiting for BREATHLESSLY!
It is time to announce the winner of the Caption Contest.
First of all, let me say, this was So. Not. Easy!
You guys! You are all so good. I giggled so much, TG asked me if I'd been hitting the sauce more than usual. But then I showed him, and he understood.
Seriously, I laughed so hard reading through all the entries, I almost wet myself. (And I was driven to use the word "so" repeatedly. Redundancy, people! You drove me to redundancy with your hilariousness.)
But I forgive you.
Finally, because I suck at tough decisions, I had to divide the winners into categories.
In the Best Homage to the Classics category, the winner is...BILL CAMERON! With my theater background, how could I resist:
"What light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Clancy is the sun."
In the Best Musical category, the winner is KELLY BREAKEY. Her "Clancy" take-off on "Sandy" from Grease was brilliant. (Follow the Caption Contest link above to read her whole entry in the comments.)
And, finally, in the coveted Almost Made Me Consider Buying Depends category, the winner is...
"I shit you not, Clancy. We jump out of a tall tree, spread our arms and legs, and float gently to a waiting branch. What say I open this window and you give it a try?"
Steve's entry not only tickled my funny bone to excess, but it was also the one that made TG spew his coffee this morning, when I employed the very scientific Watching-Husband-Read-Entries method of double-checking my selection.
What can I say? Steve appealed both to my potty mouth and my warped sense of humor.
Bill, Kelly, and Steve: if you will either DM or email me your addresses, I will send each of you a Raise the Roof CD.
The rest of you: Thank you so much for participating -- your prize will have to be the warm inner glow of knowing you brought joy and laughter into my life.
OR, you could pop over to yesterday's post for a chance to win a random sur-PRIZE. If you're willing to take a risk on what I consider to be a good sur-prize, that is. Bwah-ha-hah!
