CD's Unofficial Caption Contest #417

Welcome to the ninth year of the caption contest!

Normally I'd have scores from after the last round...but since this is the first week of the new year, scores are simple:

Code:
You            0
Instead, I give you the rules. (Other rules have been created, but these are the ones that see use.)

Quote:
Originally Posted by The Rules (enacted Caption Contest #1)
The rules:
-I am never ever gonna be eligible, unless I change the rule just before handing over control of the game to someone else.
-If it's your image I pick, you're not eligible.
-If you suggest an image and I pick it, you're not eligible.
-Entries will be scored by me on originality, or in the absence of that, dry humor.
-First place gets ten points, second gets five, honorable mentions will be awarded at my whims.
Traditionally, roughly half of the entries receive a two-point honorable mention, and one particularly good zinger received the burn award, good for three points. The remainder receive a single point.

There have been some updates to the rules over the years:

Quote:
Originally Posted by The Heidi Foster Rule (enacted Caption Contest #20)
Preventing anyone from entering the caption contest by means of any feat of engineering is prohibited. This rule shall not apply if both the victim and Billfred are laughing after the act has been committed.
Quote:
Originally Posted by The Billfred Is Working Way Too Much Rule (enacted Caption Contest #24)
If, for whatever reason, Billfred is working on a job on a day he has to post or judge a caption contest, he reserves the right to fudge the posting or judging by one day in either direction.
("Working" gets a rather liberal interpretation, mind you.)

Quote:
Originally Posted by The OTHER Heidi Foster Rule (enacted Caption Contest #29)
No person may kidnap, threaten, or otherwise cause harm or mental distress to Billfred in order to influence the outcome of a caption contest.
Quote:
Originally Posted by The -infinity Rule (enacted Caption Contest #42)
At certain times, should Billfred be pwned by a contestant, he may, at his sole discretion, assign a score of -infinity to that contestant. Points still accumulate as normal, but the -infinity score will remain posted until Billfred either lets off or forgets to add the -infinity score again.
Quote:
Originally Posted by The Koko Ed Rule (enacted Caption Contest #46, but a de facto rule for long before)
Anyone except Billfred can enter the caption contest, even if it's their picture.
Since then, the only thing that's changed is the deadline: Saturday at midnight Eastern, though entries posted afterward will count if they're posted before I open the thread to score it.

Got it? Good--because here's the picture:

Go!

I do believe that those aren't the correct batteries permitted by FIRST.

Re: CD's Unofficial Caption Contest #417

The match hasn't started because they're trying to get the androids' control systems back up to remove them from the field. Apparently the mere suggestion of 233 was enough to shut them down.

Re: CD's Unofficial Caption Contest #417

After the autonomous period, the match had to be stopped so that coaches could encourage their robots to let go of their new strawberry glazed tubes.

Re: CD's Unofficial Caption Contest #417

Everyone's strategy was messed up because all circle tubes mean it was impossible to get a logo bonus. Autonomous was also worthless because of the lack of ubertubes.

everyone was waiting while the center blue team tried to get their robot out of the upstairs closest. Don't ask how it got up there, not even security knows.
