"Those new negro worker droids they have now are terrible. They're too small and somebody messed with their civil rights setting."

(shouting)"Ok, when we start the fan and the toys start flying around, just start grabbing as many as you can! Just remember to avoid The Roving Claw Of Death! Can you hear me?" (knocks on the glass)

I onlty have time on my lunch break for caption one at the moment:

caption one

Darth Vadar is handing the little kid a promo leaflet advertising a six-part study course in "Star Wars Trivia" to help Star Wars fans prepare for a $10,000 Star Wars trivia competition.

Darth Vadar: "Use the Course, kid, use the course."

Top: Vader's new record label, Dark Side Records, makes it's first splash by inking a deal with Bow Wow.

Bottom: "Ok, seriously? Not fun anymore. Stop snapping photo's, I'm running out of air. My cheeks are turning red for Christ's sake." (notice the capitalization, RESPECT)

Uh, I have no idea! Why are there no cats in these photos?

I guess this means I don't win the CD. You probably would have sent me Wilco, anyway. You rascal, you.

XO,

Benny

PS- I think it's so funny that you have Nada Surf on your Last.fm chart- I've been trying to remind myself to look them up on iTunes. So thanks for that message from God.

James said...

Brooklyn, read the rules more carefully before you write something so egregiously wrong. It's a CD of your choice, not mine.

But you're right. After getting your request for Nada Surf or Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (they are from Brooklyn after all), I'd just send you some Tweedy anyway. Because I love you (and Jeff--hi Jeff!) that much.

James said...

# Editor's note: Apologies, B. I was wrong. I just looked back at my post and nowhere do I mention that you get to choose the CD. I meant to put that in there but forgot to.

Trevor said...

Okay, for the second picture (fear I'd reveal my racial bias against droids if I continued trying with the first one):

"All during his own birthday party, Christopher Chetterwood's parents and friends were unaware that he was in the hand claw machine, biding his time when his revenge would be complete"


Too long for a caption, and I like my first one better ;-p

Top:
Listen. Thanks for dropping by for the interview, but I think we're going to go with somebody else to play Darth Vader at my birthday party. Even an amateur would know not to prop his lightsaber up against his shoulder. It's a freakin' beam of light, for Christ sake.

Bottom:
By this time, Timmy had started to doubt his parents' assertion that "this was what all the cool kids did while their parents watched the movie". He was also pretty sure he just saw that claw move...

VADER, TO CHILD: "May I have this dance?"

Bottom:
The Child Catcher 3000, not to be confused with our elite model, The Child Catch 'n' Cook 4000, is an affordable alternative developed using the same state-of-the-art child entrapment technologies. Our researchers have carefully designed the TCC3000 to lure even the wiliest of kids into its patent-protected heavy duty enclosure. Keeps children for up to four days before asfixiation--thereby tenderizing the meat to delicious perfection!

Child Catcher: Once they get in, they never get out.

James said...

I should probably revise my first entry a tad.

Top:
GUY IN DRUID ROBES, TO PRINCESS LEIA: "So...come here often?"

If it was Vader or the child picking the other up, it'd be more like:
"Call me."

Benny said...

Yeh, James. YOU read your rules more carefully!

Gdmm'ed hipsters. Sheesh.

XO

James said...

Whatevs. Why don't you put that wit to use and join in?

Robb said...

Top:
"Do you know that Jesus loves you and died for your sins?"

Bottom:
This picture is a lot less shocking when you read the rest of the sign on the front of the machine: "Playing may result in capture, loss of teeth, and stupid grin. Procede with caution."

lighterate said...

ah Robb, you do make me chuckle. Usually I have the silent 'mental laughter' thing when I read, but you really make me chuckle until night time (I hate acronyms).

And I so wanted the music prize.

Can we have another competition, like, whoever lives closest to Berlin wins a CD?

James said...

Light, just send me your email and I'll get you some tracks. jamesyeh82@gmail.com.
