I entered this weeks caption contest. Never knew they had this.
Does anybody note a familiar name on this list?
Constantine!!! Isn't that the guy from American Idol a couple of seasons ago?!?
You're so bad!!
I too hope to see my name under this week's caption!
How many times you had your name displayed there?
Only once. I've entered captions 5 or 6 times.
Here's hoping my entry for this week makes it!
In the years, and years that they've been doing the caption contest, it got to the point where it was more entertaining reading everyone else's winning caption than trying to come up with my own. (Although, I've submitted a few good ones...)
DH, you're way too young to be using phrases such as "years and years ago"
How about "a long time ago"? I was on the StarWars.com boards before they started doing the contest back in 2000, why can't I use that phrase? It was before most other people...
I guess it's a matter of perspective. Years and years ago you were in diapers and I was graduating from high school.
Some weirdo posted this in the JC.

Yes, it's that time of the year again when the Darwin Awards are bestowed, honouring the least-evolved among us. Here're the glorious runners-up.
1. When his .38-calibre revolver failed to fire at his intended victim during a hold-up in Long Beach, California, would-be robber James Elliot did something that can only inspire wonder. He peered down the barrel and tried the trigger again. This time it worked.
And now for the honourable mentions:
2. The chef at a hotel in Switzerland lost a finger in a meat cutting machine and, after a little hopping around, submitted a claim to his
insurance company. The company expecting negligence sent out one of its men to have a look for himself. He tried the machine and lost a finger. The chef's claim was approved.
3. A man who shovelled snow for an hour to clear a space for his car during a blizzard in Chicago returned with his Vehicle to find a woman had taken the space. Understandably, he shot her.
4. After stopping for drinks at an illegal bar, a Zimbabwean bus driver found that the 20 mental patients he was supposed to be transporting from Harare to Bulawayo had escaped. Not wanting to admit his incompetence, the driver went to a nearby bus stop and offered everyone waiting there a free ride. He then delivered the passengers to the mental hospital, telling the staff that the patients were very excitable and prone to bizarre fantasies. The deception wasn't discovered for 3 days.
5. An American teenager was in the hospital recovering from serious head wounds received from an oncoming train. When asked how he received the injuries, the lad told police that he was simply trying to see how close he could get his head to a moving train before he was hit.
6. A man walked into a Louisiana Circle-K, put a $20 bill on the counter, and asked for change. When the clerk opened the cash drawer, the man pulled a gun and asked for all the cash in the register, which the clerk promptly provided. The man took the cash from the clerk and fled, leaving the $20 bill on the counter. The total amount of cash he got from the drawer...$15. (If someone points a gun at you and gives you money, is a crime committed?)
7. Seems an Arkansas guy wanted some beer pretty badly. He decided that he'd just throw a cinderblock through a liquor store window, grab some booze, and run. So he lifted the cinderblock and heaved it over his head at the window. The cinderblock bounced back and hit the would-be thief on the head, knocking him unconscious. The liquor store window was made of Plexiglas. The whole event was caught on videotape.
8. As a female shopper exited a New York convenience store, a man grabbed her purse and ran. The clerk called 911 immediately, and the woman was able to give them a detailed description of the snatcher. Within minutes, the police apprehended the snatcher. They put him in the car and drove back to the store. The thief was then taken out of the car and told to stand there for a positive ID. To which he replied, "Yes, officer, that's her. That's the lady I stole the purse from."
9. The Ann Arbor News crime column reported that a man walked into a Burger King in Ypsilanti , Michigan , at 5 a.m., flashed a gun, and demanded cash. The clerk turned him down because he said he couldn't open the cash register without a food order. When the man ordered onion rings, the clerk said they weren't available for breakfast .. The man, frustrated, walked away.
AND THE 5-STAR STUPIDITY AWARD WINNER!
10. When a man attempted to siphon gasoline from a motor home parked on a Seattle street, he got much more than he bargained for. Police arrived at the scene to find a very sick man curled up next to a motor home near spilled sewage. A police spokesman said that the man admitted to trying to steal gasoline and plugged his siphon hose into the motor home's sewage tank by mistake. The owner of the vehicle declined to press charges, saying that it was the best laugh he'd ever had.
Gee, it's seems that only men win this "award".
Looks like it for this year! I've seen women win it before though. Looks as though the women learn from others mistakes where as these guys just didn't bother.
Honestly, guys tend to be more stupid in that area. Women can be stupid in others.
Stole this from the SD Boards.
These guys are nuts!
