CD's Unofficial Caption Contest #53

It was a dark and stormy night....well, actually it is up here in Maine.

Normally, this is where I'd make some awkward segue to the scores. But since it's a new year, I'm going to wipe the slate clean.

Here's a reminder of the rules:

-I post a picture. You come up with the best caption for it, judged on originality or, in the absence of that, dry humor.
-First place gets ten points, second place gets five, honorable mentions are two, and the burn award (given to the best zinger of the week) gets three. All decisions are made by yours truly. (Oh, and everyone gets at least one point.)

Along the course of the past year, there's been a few rules created, most of them on the fly. Here's the list:

Quote:

(of course, the deadline is now midnight saturday, but the theory remains)

Since that contestant can't enter their own contest, they will receive their average score multiplied by the number of weeks they run the contest, rounded off.
Oh yeah, and I'm probably supposed to stick a picture in here somewhere. Here we go:

As always, the deadline is midnight Saturday.

Go!!

Under the pretense of reffing, Andy and John really just wanted to take a peak "under the hood" of the national champion.

Five minutes after the initial proposition to see who could do more push-ups, we listen in...

Andy Baker: "Ooone!"

John: Dude, you are suppose to check if the robots are on the ramp or not.

Andy: But they have 4 robots on the field which are ready to go, you think they can kill us during Autonomous?

John: You have been in FIRST for a while, haven't you learned yet that the field is being controlled by the scorekeepers? They didn't press start the match yet.

Re: CD's Unofficial Caption Contest #53

Gosh you're right Big Mike, the number 111 is definitely only .74" stroke AND only 3.99 inches tall; they should have been disqualified which means Raider Robotix should be declared the national champions.

NOT!
