[ Retro Scan of the Week ] Halloween Caption Contest

October 22nd, 2007 by Benj Edwards

VCG Halloween Caption Contest Image

Halloween will soon be upon us, and you know what that means. That’s right! It’s time for VC&G’s 5th caption contest.

Your task? Simply write the funniest caption you can think of for the image above. Anyone out there may enter the contest as many times as they want by writing a comment on this post. I will select the winning caption a week from today and post the result. The winner will receive an autographed*, heavily used copy of Pac-Man for the Atari 2600, which I will mail to him/her if he/she lives in the United States.

But of course, it’s not really about winning; it’s about the self-satisfaction you’ll gain by entertaining your peers and the joy of participating in a community event.

So join in the fun. Let’s see what you guys can come up with for this one.

If you use this image on your site, please support “Retro Scan of the Week” by giving us obvious credit for the original scan and entry. Thanks.

    Mwahahah! My amazing Blueberry chemical compound is working, with only a few flagrant side-effects! If I could only reach my Margarita over there, I might be able to put a stop this embarrassing compote flatulence!

    Anybody else notice that it says “Rero Scan of the Week”? That’s a great scan though. He looks a little on edge, maybe it’s that almost empty 2 liter of Mountain Dew on his desk 🙂

  9. Benj Edwards Says:

    Heh, it did say “Rero,” XCALBR8. Thanks for spotting the error. Perhaps I should permanently change this feature into an ode to Reros? 🙂

    Dr. Thomas Burkhalter gasps with horror as he realizes–too late–that 8-bit numbers just aren’t precise enough for an accurate formulation of Satanic Lemonade.

    uh, gulp….Hi mom….No, I am not on a porn site….

    Good work so far. Keep ’em coming!

  18. Russell Says:

    As his patent-pending Kenny Loggins hair regrowth serum took effect, Mel began to belt out “Angry Eyes” along with the 8-bit MIDI tune emanating from his top-tier computing platform. Results were inconclusive.

    1.) You’d look like a mad scientist too if you were the only one on earth desperately trying to save humanity from the imminent doom we face when we are attacked by cylons, the Borg, and Skynet simultaneously.


    2.) Arrr! All this scientific research aggravates my Tourette’s. My feet are ticking so feverishly my shoes are smoking up!


    3.) All this analyzing and I still don’t know who the eff shot JR!


    4.) If I continue at this pace, I can have the Game Fuel formula ready by the time Master Chief defends Earth from the Covenant!

    Yes, yes! The yellow dye is working perfectly. Consumers will never know that this beverage is derived from 2000 Flushes! … Oh sh*t, mom’s trying to smoke me out of my room again.

  21. Benj Edwards Says:

    OK. Sorry I’m late. Here’s the result of the contest.

    The winner is… Geoff V with his caption reading:

    Congrats, Geoff V. You’ve won a copy of Pac-Man for the Atari 2600 autographed by Ulaf Silchov. I’ll try to contact you soon, but feel free to email me first.

    Thanks, everybody for participating. Next time I’ll try to find a picture that’s not so hard to caption. 🙂
