CD's Unofficial Caption Contest #5

Alright, so here's round five of this weekly laugh-fest. The standings:

Jeff Wagelin: 16
MissInformation: 14
greencactus3: 13
Lil' Lavery: 11
Brandon Martus: 10
Michelle 236: 7
Mike Ciance: 5
Shyra1353: 5
Andy Baker: 4
Astronouth7303: 4
Corey Balint: 4
EddieMcD: 4
George1083: 4
ZACH P.: 4
Aignam: 3
"Big Mike": 3
Andrew Rudolph: 3
Elgin Clock: 3
Greg Needel: 3
Joe Ross: 2
Tom Schindler: 2
Vivelation: 2
Ben Lauer: 1
Collin Fultz: 1
ElfMaster: 1
Katie Reynolds: 1
sanddrag: 1
T. Hoffman: 1
JosephM: 1

Now, for a RATHER IMPORTANT RULE CHANGE FOR PROCRASTINATORS:

Next Saturday, I'll be moving into my college dorm rooms. I don't believe that this will give me much time to check CD, at least for a few days. So, in the interest of keeping this going, this caption contest will end on Wednesday, August 11 at midnight Eastern. The next one should be posted on Sunday.

As Brandon can probably figure out from the server logs, I've loaded up a lot of pictures in the hunt for the perfect caption bait. However, I couldn't resist when I saw this picture:

http://www.invisiblerobot.com/roboti.../p6126562.html

(And, by the way, I'm officially ditching the if-you-posted-it-you're-not-eligible rule, due to the fact that it doesn't seem to make a hill of beans' difference who posted it.)

Go!

Re: CD's Unofficial Caption Contest #5

Alright, I know this was a time crunch (think if FIRST gave us three weeks next season...yeah, this pales in comparison, I know...)

First place: A TIE! Michelle 236 and MissInformation each will receive ten points. However, for calling Dave an unskilled fool with exotic tools, Heidi receives a seven-point penalty.

Second place: Greg Needel. Just because I have a soft spot for water game discussion.

Honorable mentions, in the order that I noticed the posts:
-dlavery (who proves that even two points can be pimp)
-Ken Patton (although wouldn't squirting water on 494's robot just short them out?)
-Elgin Clock
-"Big Mike"
-EddieMcD

ONWAAAAAAAAARD!!...on Sunday.

(wow, three whole days without a caption contest--how will I stay sane?)

But Dave did say in this thread that he would have said court jester, which translates to fool... and is not a giant squirt gun such as that an exotic tool? As for unskilled, it was his first time using it, so he was indeed unskilled... sigh... since I can sense you are not buying this defense I'll take my three points and be on my way...

I'll be in Alaska for the next 11 days, so I'll miss the next contest.
