The Intergalactic Camel Vacuuming Win an ARC Contest!

I think this picture is calling out for a caption.

My brain is fried, and I can't think of one. Can you help me? 

Funny, goofy, clever, lame...anything goes! 

I will even pick a winner, based on the level of funniness, goofiness, cleverness, or lameness of said caption. Or perhaps on whimsy. Possibly even randomly. 

And, since my wonderful publicist sent me a few extra ARCs (advance reading copies) of Quick Fix, a signed one of those will be the prize. 

(I know! Not as good as the cheesy plastic toys or cheap candy I usually give out as prizes, but hey, I'm trying to do my promo duty here. Sue me.*)

Let's run the contest until, say, Sunday (Aug. 11, 2013) at midnight East Coast time. It's open intergalactically. 

Happy Hump Day!

P.S. If you honestly can't think of a caption--even a lame one--but still want to be considered for the ARC, just tell me in the comments. I'm very understanding about caption performance anxiety. Or if you're too lazy to come up with one, you can tell me that, too. I happen find brazen admissions amusing. 

*No, don't sue me. I really couldn't take the added stress right now.

I seriously have no witty caption. And, I have an ARC (signed, too). Aren't I special? Someone must really like me. wink. wink. although the lady who gave it to me really made me work my tail off for it ;) Yes, KELLY, I do still have my horns.

Kar-LUH! The caption doesn't have to be witty. It can be "clever." I KNOW you can do clever. Or, if you're too lazy to get your clever on, how tough can "lame" be? ;)

Patsy said...

"Can all men extract lint?"

"Huh? U mighty peculiar!"

"I know, but I want an ARC, so I gotta come up with a caption."

"I think Linda wanted something relevant to the picture of us being vacuumed."

"Mine is. That chap, he's cleaning the lint out of our fur isn't he?"

"No. Fluff and dust and bugs."

"But I needed an L. For the initials. Look carefully at my first comment. Can All Men Extract Lint? See what I did?"

"Look at mine to see what your lame caption gives me and Linda."

"Working at the camel wash - yeah!"

Lame, I know. Anywho I already have an arc of Quick Fix. Now when you start prizing out arc's of The Big Fix I am soooo there.

"Roomba laughed at my Desert Vacuum model. We'll see who's laughing after I've made my millions selling sand suckers door-to-door via camel! TAKE THAT, ROBOT!"

Linda G. said...

Ha! Y'all are coming up with some great ones. Keep 'em coming! :D

He was distracted by the sister's with their double d rack, he knew he must clean up his act to have a chance.

"I thought when they said camel sucker they meant tobacco."


"'Join the foreign legion.' they said. 'See the world.'" Yea, right.

Mine is more a commercial than a one-liner but here goes...
Ronco EZ Car Washer with telescoping pole is not just for cars. It will wash just about anything. Got a boat, bicycle, heck even a camel is no problem for the Ronco EZ Car Washer. Get yours today!

I read this post last night, but couldn't come up with a clever caption, so figured I'd chew it over for a while. Didn't help. Oh, I came up with one, but it's kinda X-rated, so I'm censoring myself. (After all, I have a "sweet little old lady" reputation to maintain... or, uh, start. Never mind.)

Anyhow, here's a totally lame caption for ya: "This isn't going to help, Clyde. You still smell like wet human."

Told ya. Lame. (Sorry!)
