Envelope please…..And the Winners Are…………

The moment we’ve been waiting for!  The Get the Party Started Caption Contest winners are…….drumroll please…..

1. “How we all felt the day after watching the red wedding.”

CLASSIC  This top winning response is brought to you by John Callaghan of http://getoffmylawnplease.com/ fame.  There are 3 reasons why this quote won the top slot in this contest.  First of all, it made me laugh out loud.  Secondly, John Callaghan is a wonderful blogger and Game of Thrones enthusiast which gives him a HUGE boost in ratings from me.  And lastly, I’m pretty sure everyone guessed this is me as a baby in Elemendorf AFB, Anchorage, Alaska. Sooooooo…….it is easy to say WINTER IS COMING.  *ps.  This has nothing to do with this “prize,” but all of a sudden I’m getting to know a number of Canadians. John, I’m glad you are one of them.  Sorry?

1. “Bill tipped his coffee mug to his lips for that first vital morning sip, but then immediately spit mug’s contents all over the table.

“This is baby formula!” he cried in disgust.

Then he began to ponder. If the formula he had made for little Brandon ended up in his mug, what happened to the coffee he had made for himself?”

This next #1 winner is from Blunderdad from http://singlefamilyasylum.com/. One of my favorite bloggers of all time and I give him props a lot because I think he’s hysterically funny.  Blunderdad makes everything we have ever had to go through as a parent, child or sibling instantly recognizable and laugh out loud funny.  So that was my first of all, because I laughed out loud. And then LAUGHED OUT LOUD AGAIN. Secondly, I already told you why I think he is a great writer.  Lastly, I realized that he may be on to something here because I am addicted to coffee.

1. “Dude, is that smell coming from you or me?!”

This #1 winner is brought to you directly from George, at  http://theoffkeyoflife.com/.  George is a great blogger and we have been enjoying each other’s blogs for a while now.  I highly recommend his style and humor, which segues into my 1) made me laugh out loud, 2) because I love how he writes and 3) I’m trying to ignore that he made a funny joke at my expense by implying that I’m stinky, even though I was only a few months old at the time. And don’t tell George, but I am not a Springsteen fan.  Ewwwww

1.  “Oh Jesus! I just swallowed my pacifier!”

This next #1 winner is another entry from John Callaghan at http://getoffmylawnplease.com/.  He gets extra credit for multiple entries which shows that he has a great imagination and perseverance and a great sense of humor.  And I like the play on themes with the prayer “Oh Jesus,” because this was at my baptism.

Now the last #1 favorite, which is actually a 2 for 1, and is an extra-special #1 favorite because he gave me the idea for the contest…..goes….to…..PAUL ever famous for The Captain’s Speech!

“Not another step closer, OR ELSE.”

“Hurry up and put the eye drops in already!”

Both of these comments made me laugh out loud more than once (like again right now).  The first comment shows that I was preparing myself to be a teacher and that I am exercising my teaching talents with Canadian Paul because he doesn’t spell well.  He has a nasty habit of adding “u” to words like “humour” and “favourite.”  But I have hope for him yet.  He’s fabulous (there, Paul, I dare you to add another “u” to that one) and worth a daily read and re-read!

THANK YOU to all the participants, and to everyone who reads this blog.  I have a blast writing, and have decided to keep using this picture on every post, since it’s been a hit in the last three.  And please check out the bloggers mentioned above.  You will be so happy that you did!

ps.  If you didn’t read this in an earlier blog, my cousin calls this picture “Baby Count Dracula.”  I always thought that I was saying “DEAR GOD DON’T LEAVE ME WITH THIS FAMILY!”

  2. Hahaha. These were all fantastic. And two Canadians make the podium! In closing I would like to say I really had fun doing this and that damn picture practically writes it own captions. Colour, harbour, candour, clamour, favour, fervour, flavour, humour, parlour, odour, savour, rancour, and on and on. The letter Zed. Sorry. Sorry for being sorry. We love the letter U.

    Really?? I actually won an award? And not just any award, I might add. This is a biggie.
    I have to admit, I secretly have an acceptance speech prepared, just in case.
    First of all, I’d like to thank the members of the academy. What?…..oh….ok……I guess I prepared the wrong speech. I’ll be back shortly. I’m sorry. I thought this was…..
