Six-Word Caption Contest #11 (and winner #10)

Monday, November 26th, 2012

By Larry Smith

And you thought you had a wild night? SMITH and Shutterfly’s Six-Word Caption Contest continues as we seek your six words that describe the situation you see here by 5pm EST on Friday. One punch-drunk six-word scribe will win a gift certificate for $50 for Shutterfly. Leave your six-word caption in the comments area below. Each entry should be separate comment and you can submit up to 10 entries; read the official rules for more details.

Last week more than 250 scribes cooked up captions to describe the photo you see in this blog post. And the winning six is:“The recipe only called for a pinch.”
by Freddy. And a close, well-timed second (with a prize TBA if SenoRAH gets in touch) goes to: “What happens when Hostess hires non-union.” Thanks to everyone for kicking it into high gear before the holidays.

Plus: In or near NYC? Check out a SMITH Live story show on Dec. 6 at the amazing 92nd Street Y. You’ll hear stories from Elizabeth Wurtzel, Deborah Copaken Kogan, Anthony Giglio, Lynn Harris, Rachel Sklar, the poet Jane Shore and more. SMITH members can use the code “SMITH” when you buy tickets for a discount.

    Needed to post you this bit of observation just to give many thanks over again about the pleasant solutions you have shown in this article. It is certainly wonderfully generous with you giving easily what exactly a few people would have sold as an ebook to generate some bucks on their own, and in particular considering that you could possibly have done it in case you decided. These strategies additionally served to be the great way to realize that most people have a similar dream similar to mine to figure out a little more when it comes to this issue. Certainly there are a lot more pleasant sessions ahead for individuals who see your blog post.

  193. says:

    A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I think that you should write more about this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but usually people don’t talk about these issues. To the next! Best wishes!!
