Caption Contest Winner!

By Paul | May 18, 2013

Here it is, the moment you’ve all been waiting for (or forgotten about)!

Congratulations to Christopher Wood, for the winning contest entry!  Here it is:

We received over 600 entries here at Pooch Central.  As you may have guess, a large portion of them were plays on Life of Pi.

Other recurring movie springboards were Jaws, “we’re gonna need a bigger boat,” Casablanca, “Of all the lifeboats…”, and Cast Away references to Wilson.  Also popular were variations of the Mailman’s “nor sleet nor snow” code, the end of Saturday mail delivery, threats of who is going to eat who, and the pun “being up the creek without a poodle.”

Some of these were quite clever, but I felt I should choose winners partially based on originality, as I didn’t want to select a winner with multiple variations on the same gag.

Here are some runners up.  From Kathy Fisher:

From John Neuenschwander, an interesting play on the farmer-fox-chicken riddle (Pooch fans are so learned):

And lastly, one of my favourites which was thought up by not one, not two, but three clever readers, Joanne Pritchard, Robert Peven, and Mark Saliers:

 

The winner gets a Pooch Cafe original strip of his choosing.  The other 5 honorable mentions shall receive a little something for their giggle-inducing contributions.

Thanks once again to everyone who took the time to send in some captions, it was a load of work going through them all but rewarding to hear from so many Pooch readers.  I’ll try this again sometime.  Hope you all had fun and thanks for carrying the leash!

    Yes, high praise to the winner and runner-ups. My favorite of those that were listed on this site made the runner-up. It was a very fun contest that drew some interesting captions. Kudos to everyone who made a try (also to Lulu for the moral support she gave everyone, since she participated without giving a caption). I think we all came in tied for 6th. Thanks Paul for a fun time. Back to the Cafe to quaff one!

    What a great way to say it, “I think we all came in tied for 6th.”

    Yes, bc truly, in the end, wasn’t this just about having fun, getting to see other PC fan’s ideas and feeling that larger community of other fans that still love their comics, with PC being numero uno!?
