Subject: [contest] New caption contest
Security: Public
Tags:contest, food, funny, lj, personal, photos
Here's the new caption contest. Prize is an inscribed first edition of Mainspring Powell's | Amazon ], with possible bonuses as my moving duties and imagination permit. As usual, please leave in comments your suggestion for the funniest or best caption for this photo of me with a tray of momos.

After a few days, I'll convert the captions to a poll. Remember to keep them short, the poll code truncates the entries. All eligibility and judging is both capricious and final, though I will exert myself to be as fair as possible. And have fun!

ETA: Contest is now closed. Feel free to post more entries, but the voting poll is now up.

Seeing that his target was unaffected by the shrimp cocktail mind control ray, Jay pulled out his weapon of last resort.

(This is funnier if you read a recent article that describes the evil polyamorists seducing lonely husbands at their chillingly debased potluck dinners. Someday I will introduce you to amalthya and she will make her eyes go all wide and her smile all creepy as she stares at you and says "Would you like a... shrimp cocktail?" and then all will be made clear.)

(Parentheticals are not part of the contest entry, natch.)

Not that I have a say.

I suspect it won't fit the poll code, but I couldn't help it. You made this happen:

Earlier this day, with the sun warming the hills around Rancho Lake, these little fellas had been capering through the tall grass, not a care in the world; few who delighted in eating their flesh were aware of the tragedy that had befallen these once-joyous, free-range momos. Barely sentient but difficult to capture due to their short-range teleportation ability, momos live without fear. Only humans with their clever paws and cunning intellects offer any threat to the momo population.

Momos on the Lake.
