Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast
I have had a few friends call me, email me, or ask me in person about the caption contest.

"So Charlotte, who won? Did you forget to post the winner?"

No, actually. The truth is, I had the hardest time choosing. So many made me laugh. So many made Mama Mia laugh. This type of contest is fun seeing all the creative posts but so hard to pick a winner. I even printed out a list of all the submissions and carried it around with me these past few days. I thought that by glancing sporadically here and there at the list might help narrow it down. Didn't really work. I finally narrowed the list down to 6. One in 1st place and 5 that tied for second.

Brice ~ your "WHERE ARE THOSE PUPPIES!?" made me chuckle.
Dorky Dad ~ the dialog between Cruella and the Mad Hatter's half birthday made me laugh...a lot. I'm still laughing, actually.
Jocelyn, Jocelyn, Jocelyn ~ your tribunal comment made me laugh, shake my head, bite my lip, laugh some more, and wipe away a tear. Oh, your caption fought hard to the end.
Charles ~ I laughed at the mental image of puppies in the Mad Hatter's Hat.
Bec ~ Offspring from Cruella and the Mad Hatter? I don't want to think about that either.

Honorable Mention must go to Diesel who captioned the wrong photo. But boy did it make me laugh! And Craig D for making some pretty accurate comparisons.

Jim ~ I kept coming back to your caption. I loved it's simplicity. I liked it's double play on words using the title of yet another Disney movie. I like being called Beauty. were referring to me, right? In the end, I really liked your caption. You are the winner of a $20 gift card to the store of your choice. Email me your info and I promise I'll send the card sometime before I start decorating for Christmas...which isn't until after Thanksgiving.

Thanks everyone for posting...and waiting...and calling to make sure I remembered to pick a winner. I'll be back Monday with a real post.

Congratulations to Jim. That was my favorite too!!

Diesel said...

Yeah, that one was pretty good. I knew I wouldn't win if I played by the rules, so I'm happy with my honorable mention. :)

WOOHOO! I'm No. 2! I'm No. 2! (And the winner was really good!)
