Caption This: Vote for winners!


It's been one week since we opened our most recent Caption This! contest to entries. We've allowed them to age to perfection over the weekend, and they're now ripe enough for you to pick the winner! Members of the WoW Insider staff have chosen their favorite captions from the bunch. Now you get to decide who goes home with a 60-day game card, a More Dots! or Ding! Grats shirt from J!NX, or nothing but an overbearing feeling of failure. Just pick the best caption for the above picture. Voting closes tomorrow, Wednesday, October 29 at 11:59 PM EST, and winners will be informed shortly afterward by e-mail.

Remember, entrants must be U.S. or non-Quebec Canadians at least 13 years old. If you'd like to peruse the contest's official rules, they can be found here. Happy voting!

Note that this week we have three entries that are too long for the poll form. See the super-sized entries behind the cut!

First we have rainska's exchange student mea culpa, which you can vote for at #4:

"I'm going to be honest here... when they showed me the brochure to study abroad in Eastern Kingdoms, it literally had hundreds of hot Blood Elves on the cover. I mean, the brochure talked about farming, but I figured it meant instance and raid farming not... well... actual farming. You know what? Now that I think about it this whole "cultural exchange" thing may not be worth 6 credits at Thunder Bluff University..."

And I picked my two favorite of the many Beverly Hillbillies and Green Acres parodies. Here are our song choices, available for votes at #9 and #10:

Come and listen to a story about a Scourge named Dead,
A poor goldfarmer, barely kept his family fed.
Then one day he was shootin at some n00bz,
And up through the ground came a bubblin crude.

Oil that is, black gold, Tauren Mills tea.

Well the first thing you know ol' Dead's a millionaire,
Kinfolk said "Dead move away from there"
Said 'Lordaeron is the place you outta be'
So they loaded up the tauren and moved to Undercity.

Underground, that is. Toxic pools, Sylvanas Windrunner.

Well now its time to say goodbye to Dead and all his kin,
And they would like to thank you folks for not droppin limbs.
You're all invited back again to this locality,
To have a heapin helpin of their hostility.

Undead Hillbillies that is. Cast a spell, Take your jaw off.

Y'all come back now, y'hear? -- yeng

He sings:
Green barrens is the place to be.
Farmin' gold is the life for me.
Mobs spreadin' out so far and wide.
Keep PVP, just give me that countryside.
She sings:
Undercity is where I'd rather stay.
I get allergic smelling hay.
I just adore Sylvannas' room.
Dah-ling I love you but give me Silvermoon. -- Jenna
