Today's Neatorama and Hobotopia's Caption Monkey game is special ... it comes from my own garden!
A few weeks ago, my wife Tiffany planted a zucchini plant in our backyard ... and promptly forgot about it. Today, she discovered something strange about it. It has been very hot in Santa Clarita, California, so a lot of her plants didn't make it - but this one not only lived ... it also grew a humongous zucchini!
Just how big is it? Here's the Zuc posing with our son 7-month-old son Zach:
... and our 2-year-old daughter Maddy:
So, for today's Caption Monkey game, we have two prizes:
One funny caption (chosen by Adam) will win an original comic by Adam "Ape Lad" Koford from the recent archive fo the Laugh-Out-Loud Cats, and another funny caption (chosen by me) will win a free Neatorama T-shirt.
Contest rules are darn simple: place your caption in the comment section. One caption per comment, please, but you can enter as many funny ones you can think of. Saying that my kids are cute will earn you good will, but won't necessarily win you the prize, mmkay?
Good luck!Update 8/6/08 - A little prize confusion here (sorry, only one winner and the prize is the free shirt) - the winner is TripleX, with this caption:
Our plan to destroy all vegetables by peeing in the garden backfired terribly, my young brother…
Pic 3: If I plant this right here, we should be living inside a giant zucchini by the end of the year. And I'll finally have my own room!
The best by far is "even days after the blast, they were still finding pieces of the incredible hulk.", and that's still crap. "Mommy!!! A dinosaur pooed in the garden!" is almost funny, though. Keep on trying!
Oh yeah. OK. They're cute.
