Photo Caption Contest

Splendid Marbles Photo Caption Contest – Re-opened.

Anything goes with this one.

This is the almost Brand New Splendid Marbles “Photo Caption Contest”. This should be a lot of fun – for me at least, and after all, that is what matters most and is why this site is still up and running.

  • Type a clever comment that best suits this image and place it in the comments section, along with a valid email address, and you could win a signed copy of the photo, with your snappy caption and name attached (and you’ll be added to the brand new Splendid Marbles gallery of contest winners.)
  • You are allowed FIVE submissions .
  • I will accept entries until midnight, Sunday, March 20th, 2011.
  • I’ll select five finalists, which will be voted on starting right around 3pm EST Monday, March 21st, 2011.
  • The 100th Splendid Marbles Cartoon Caption Contest will be held as soon as the new site is ready to go – which means 3-4 weeks. I can promise a prize worth at least $25 – or a date with Snookie from “Jersey Shore” – whichever’s cheaper.

    Here’s your chance to vote on the “Martian on Ice” photo caption contest

  • (The winner gets $10!)

  • I can't believe I made the contents of my freezer public. What was I thinking?

    This poll is closed; Chris Anderson is the winner.

    • “I come in the name of peas.” -No, wait… - Chris Anderson (47%, 24 Votes)
    • Last warning. Bring me Malibu Barbie. - Sandy (22%, 11 Votes)
    • Things haven’t been the same since Tim Burton went vegetarian. - Gianna (10%, 5 Votes)
    • It was Jerry’s night to make sure no one confiscated their ice cream. - Janis (6%, 3 Votes)
