"after the outrage caused among some fans by the extensive use of CGI, lucas decided to go back to his roots with puppetry, and realized it really DID look like crap!"

or

"with dwindling action figure sales, the budget for the 'super nifty editions' of the original trilogy wasn't nearly what G.Lu had in mind..."

Are you sure you have to be a member of the hyperspace to enter the caption contest? I mean if you don't than how did you get the picture? I'm not a member, but I posted my caption successfully. I like this idea, but we might want to use our own photo's instead of lifting them from another site.

Wampa-"Relax, I have good news."
Luke-"Oh thank God, I did not want to die."
Wampa-"Um no I am still eating you. I just saved 15% on my car insurance by switching to Geico."

"Aw but maaaa, I don't wanna pick up my toys!"



"Tell the milkman: no more tauntauns."



"... and I will name him 'George', and I will hug him and pet him and squeeze him and..."
"Put me down. I'm not a bunny rabbit. You're hurting me."
"Not a bunny rabbit George?"

Actually, JT, that line was sort of used for last week's caption.

Since they didnn't use mine on the last caption of the week:

The Empire Strikes back; Special Edition # 6

I also did a second caption:

"Mom, Mom, look what I found, can I keep him"

Now to get to work on this new one..........hmmmm.

"In an effort to shield the young actors from anything that was non-CGI, Umbrella Expert Phillip Smith Johnson the 2nd, was brought in to cover the couples' eyes and to make sure this scene was as awkward as possible. After all, can a couple truly fall in love if a 32 year old umbrella expert is hovering over you?"

I have decided to only post the captions they don't post. Which means I'll post them almost every time. :p So here was mine from last week:
"Luke. The other white meat."

SW.com has no taste. ;)Mmm... tastes like Jedi... :happy:

I am a little tardy with last week's reply but here goes:

WAMPA: (thinking to himself) Nothing goes down the gullet better after a Taun-Taun, than a human being. Leaves a nice, mellow after dinner taste.


And this week's caption:

After seeing a photo of P. Diddy's own hired, personal umbrella handler, Natalie Portman thought to herself, "Hey, why don't I have one?"

In an effort to provide a uniform feel to the prequels, a specialist was brought in to shield the actors from any possible talent getting near them. Upon completion of the film, this man was paid a bonus for doing such a good job.

Well the results are in, and once again my selection gets left out in the rain.

"Here's your umbrella for your cocktail your highness"

George Lucas decides to remake "singing in the rain".

Okay, so they weren't that great, but neither are most of the ones they picked. I still like JT's!

My first idea for last week's contest was "A Lucasfilm grip shows Anakin the true dark side," but I changed it to "'Is the Dark Side stronger?' 'No. Cooler, more shady.'" It was weak, I admit. Mine for this week's is sure to be chosen! :crazed:

Mine for this week's is sure to be chosen! :crazed:
Uh, yeah...
I had submitted "K-3PO's 'I hole-heartedly agree' line finally pushed Threepio over the edge," and it was cast aside like a common Jawa. :cry:

Don't feel bad, mine wasn't chosen either. Want to hear it? I don't remember word for word, so bear with me.........."Look sir, I've finished my ice sculpture replica of me".

I had submitted 2 captions, but for the life of me, I can't remember the second one. This one comes to mind just now though: And 3PO's bride is wearing white...... :rolleyes:

I submitted two for last week's picture, and guess what? They didn't select them! Wow! :eek:

They were:
"Blues the Force"
and
"If we stand by the walls, we can get ALL the Episode III spoilers without anyone seeing us!"

Well, I liked them...

[Edit] p.s. I forgot to mention my losing entry from the previous previous week's captions:
"I wear my sunglasses, Jedi Knight, so I can, so I can, keep track of visions in my mind..."
Now, THAT one was bad. :frus: :rolleyes:

Bel-Cam Jos
12-16-2003, 09:58 PM
I really thought mine from last week would've been chosen:
"Why did the chicken walker cross the road? To get smashed by logs."
It had the cheesiness sw.com usually picks... :(

bobafrett

I couldn't think of anything funny for that one. Does this mean that there is a new one up now? I'll have to check and see.

Bel-Cam Jos

Last week's contest, I was sure mine would get picked. And, as is often the case, I believe that mine was at least as good as those chosen. It was:

"If this is a toy store, then where are the action figures?"

Eh, what're you gonna do? :rolleyes:

bobafrett

I had entered three in the captioons with R2 and 3PO with the musical instruments. Someone beat me to my second caption "And then this one time, at band camp..."
I forget to check in at SW.com after I make my captions.

I actually got one of my captions selected. It was from a couple of months ago, but I was ASTONISHED that they picked mine. A couple of times I have posted and the idea I came up with was similar to the title of the picture. I wish there more than 8 responses listed. The ones they do pick are usually rather lame.

I really liked my choice for this past week's photo (with the quarter by the AT-AT model):

"After the quarter landed on its side, the AT-AT Driver realized he could read people's minds."

A little arcane and out of date, but I thought it was good.
