CD's Unofficial Caption Contest #292

To the tune of the Marines’ Hymn:

From the halls of all our regionals
To our leaders in D.C.
We inspire our nation’s hearts and minds
Through science and technology

First to be gracious professionals
With our custom-built machine
We are proud to claim the title
Of a FIRST Robotics team.

Hey, let’s take a pole and stab this hill to death…

842, attempting to do Dean’s homework. Too bad nobody will see it.

<npoe>In all due respect, kudos to these kids for making the climb. I’d like to know how they managed to get the flag up there, because climbing mountains is much easier said than done, nevermind a flag.</npoe>

What do you mean you forgot the duct tape?

Hey guys, the flag is supposed to be Red or Blue. There is no black alliance.

I hereby claim this land for Falco-is that Bear Grylls?

Student: “Hey! I can see my house from here.”

Um guys, wrong mountain!

Leader: Ok, now break out the chutes, we’re base jumping to get down!
Freshman: Wait, what:ahh: :ahh: :ahh:
Senior: That’s why we’re Falcon Robotics!

Student 1: points to horizon “Good work guys! Now we only need to go activate the terminal on that mountain over there, and our mind controll device will be ready to enslave the world!”

Student 2: "I thought this was a team building activity :mad: "

Extreme Kilo Golfs’ hole 842 is considered Phoenix’s toughest challenge.

Today we take this mountain, tomorrow the world!!!

Rock on! :slight_smile:

New member:
Man, when 842 says the sky’s the limit - they mean it.
When they say that mountains are there to be conquered - they believe it.
When they say to dream big - they know exactly what that means.
When they ask where the bathroom is up here - I know we are in big trouble.

<Replacement Entry>

Young hoodlums stealing Hill 842’s flag. (They figured they could bend the pole until it breaks).
If only they had been involved with FIRST… <sigh>.

Lead Mentor : “ok students, regroup with your squad back down the mountain… then do the same thing to all the mountains around here…”

Freshman: "I thought we were just posting this picture for a post on Chief Delphi

842: “I claim this mountain! For 842”
Mountain Tribe: “You can’t claim it, we live here.”
824: “Do you have a flag?”
MT: “Why would we need a flag?”
842: “No flag, no mountain. Those are the rules… we just made up.”
MT: “Well that’s ridiculous!”
842: “No its not, and we can back up our land claims with this robot.”
MT: “AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH! IT’S AALLLIIIIIIIIIVVVEEEEE!” <Runs away in fear of being kicked by 842’s awesome Breakaway kicker. Contrary to popular belief, their kicker isn’t used for kicking balls. Its used for kicking butt.>

Who would have thought that you climb a mountain to prepare for an underwater competition.

<npoe>I think Billfred is enacting the It’s Week Six, Billfred Has No Time for Caption Contests rule.

Close–I actually was enacting the Billfred Was Trying To Be a Good Boyfriend On Valentine’s Day Rule, a close sibling of the Billfred Is Working Way Too Much Rule. But enough about that.
