Yay! Neatorama and Hobotopia's Caption Monkey is back! And let's get straight to it, okay?

Funniest caption for this crazy awesome photo of Pua the tamandua (a genus of anteater) wins a Free Monkey (or other critter) Drawing by Ape Lad of Hobotopia! Contest rule is darn simple: write your caption in the comment, one caption per comment please but you can submit as many as you'd like. You can also vote for your favorite comment, but not your own.

While you're at it, you can read all about tamanduas here: Link | Tamandua [wiki]

Update 11/15/07: Congratulations to AnnaBee #24 for the winning caption:

“And then I told Lashonda, ‘girl, listen– I know you dig the airbrushing and bedazzle diamonds, but this Anteater’s got her own beat to jive to– you dig?’ I mean, there’s nothing wrong with going au natural when you’ve got nails as fine as this. Girlfriend, she was gettin’ all up in my grill– and I practically put her litter through Ant College with all the acrylic wraps and gel fills she’s done on these claws.”

Maître D: And finally, monsieur, a wafer-thin mint.

Pua the tamandua: Nah.

Maître D: Oh, sir, it's only a tiny, little, thin one.

Pua the tamandua: Look. I couldn't eat another thing. I'm absolutely stuffed. Bugger off.

Stop ! If you guys at National Geographic step one foot closer with that ear tag gun I'll put this nose where the sun doesn't shine.... we'll see who gets tagged first.

NO WAY I'm drinking that ! Don't step one foot closer ! I told you I wanted a double mocha cappuccino , NOT a mocha latte..... get it right next time ! What am I paying you people for ? Stupid humans.

We don't need no stinking ants - stop the stereotyping and the racial profiling of my kind just because we're called anteaters. I actually enjoy a good curry and a double macchiato for lunch sometimes too !

People People...I am with the Anteater CSI division - please no more questions.... go home back to your families and your mundane lives and forget everything you've seen here tonight.

Geez Louise...no one ever gives away a stuffed tamandua. It's always the monkeys - they get alllllllllll the attention and I'm left in the dark sucking up ants butts. Where's the justic in this world ??

Hey Neotorama ! Yea , I'm talking to you ! A stuffed monkey ?OHHHHHHHHH I didn't read the fine print I thought I was going to have a real monkey. Damn, I was hoping for monkey stew tonight - eating ants gets quite tedious, ya know ? Try sucking up ants for a living, it's just a not a way to go through life.

After performing Shakepeare for nearly an hour, Mr. Tamandua refused his manager's request to go back on stage for an encore exclaiming, "Until you stop paying me in dollars and start paying me in Euros I'll be in burrow until further notice - I will not be a victim of the exchange rate any longer !!!"

Wait !!! You ..over there - come back hear a second.... exactly how much does this blogging job pay ? I work cheap, live in a burrow, and no..I do NOT work for peanuts.

Latest report from the Globe Theater in London:

Mr. Tamandua refuses all Paparazzi attempts for questioning until learning that the Discovery channel was lurking in the back alley. After a moments thought he waves his manager over and yells " Hey Murray get the limo around back and tell the Discovery Channel I'll meet them down the street, tell them to have the cash ready and I'll give them some good money shots"..... Those Americans.... anything for cash.... just because I'm South American doesn't mean I don't have standards.

WHOA! I may be into peanut butter and crawling insects, but you throw that Asian girl and the dude in chaps into the mix and I'm outta here!

Those dumb hippies at school think I'm Kokopelli's buddy, or the cousin of that stupid Grateful Dead bear, but I'm just an ordinary anteater.

Question: How come we don't get to find out who the winning captions are for these contests? I would like to know who beat me so I can scoff at the judges! :) This question is not necessarily directed at this contest, but all of them.

I guess you are right, but the last couple have said, "I’ve notified the lucky winners by email" and nothing else. I hope that isn't the new trend!

Thanks for the reply dan.

Wow - great captions, guys (as always). It was difficult to pick the winner, but pick we must, so congrats to AnnaBee #24 for the winning caption!

And yes, it did take me longer to pick the winner of this caption (mea culpa). I got really busy with work/life....
