SPONSORED BLOG POST: Epic

EPIC_blogpost_130x130Create an EPIC Caption!

This post is sponsored by 20th Century Fox.

In the new movie Epic, hitting theaters May 24th, you’ll experience an incredible world unlike any you’ve seen before! The movie is about a battle between the forces of good who keep the natural world alive, and the forces of evil who want to destroy it. When a teenage girl named M.K. is magically transported into this secret universe, she meets a crew of fun characters who do everything they can to save their world . . . and ours.
Amanda Seyfried plays M.K., Josh Hutcherson plays Nod, Pitbull plays a toad named Bufo, and Beyoncé Knowles plays the Queen of this special world. Pretty cool cast, huh?

To get you in an “epic” mood, fill in this caption. It’s M.K. and Mub the Slug. (Not to be confused with a snail. “I’m a sluuuug. No shell over here, baby.”) Mub is one funny slug. What do you think he is saying to M.K.?

Createacaption2Create a Caption: Snow Dog

Here's one fabulous looking pup! Killy looks like she enjoys the snow, but her natural environment is definitely center stage. Look at the sass in that pose. There's definitely a lot of diva in this dog.

Killy

My caption for this photo would definitely be the following:

“Ooh, snow! I love snow. It brings out my eyes. I think this would be the perfect backdrop for my glamour shots!”

What do YOU think Killy is doing here? What’s she thinking? What’s she trying to say? Give us YOUR caption in the comments below!

Create a Caption: Benni Dog

CreateacaptionCreate a Caption: Benni Dog

This dog, Benni, looks like a real team player. Look at how eager he looks! What a dependable-looking guy. If dogs could talk, I bet this is what Benni would be saying in this photo:

“Alright, guys. We’ve got this. Fido, you’re our offense superstar. I want you to give this your all – the dogs on the other team won’t know what hit them. Max, I want you to keep Fido covered at all times. Buddy, our defense lineup is strong but I need you to still have your head 100% in the game – I don’t want the other guys to score a single goal today. You’ve been slacking off a little lately. Don’t let your teammates down. Alright guys, you ready to kick some major butt in soccer today? GO TEAM!”

Benni

Think I’m way off-base? What do YOU think is going on with Benni? Share your caption in the Comments!

Guinness2013Guinness World Records 2013 Create a Caption

It’s Guinness World Records time again — that crazy time of year when we post a Create a Caption for the new Guinness World Records book. 3 years ago, we had the photo of the guy who holds the record for wearing the most T-shirts at once. 2 years ago, it was the kid who holds the world record for balancing the most spoons on his face. Last year, it was dogs skipping rope.

Let’s continue the dog theme with this photo from the brand new Guinness World Records 2013 of the world’s tallest dog. Prepare to be amazed. . .

Create a Caption: Pinkie the Pink Puppy

Pinkie’s owners must sure like pink. Not only is Pinkie named, well . . . Pinkie, that’s also the pinkest little doggie jacket I’ve ever seen. You can spot that from a mile away. So for today’s Create a Caption, let’s talk about Pinkie the Pink-Jacketed Puppy.

Pinkie

What does Pinkie think about all this pink? Here is my caption:

“Has it ever occurred to you that I might NOT like pink? Why does no one ever consult me on my wardrobe??”

What do YOU think Pinkie is thinking? Give us your captions in the Comments!

Create a Caption: Saint Bernard Dogs

Create a Caption: Saint Bernard Dogs

Recently, Scholastic asked some grown-ups to send in photos of their dogs for a special Dog of the Week contest. The sillier or cuter, the better! We loved them so much we thought it would be fun to feature these award-winning dogs in an Ink Splot 26 post dedicated to doggie awesomeness.

Take, for example, this picture of the Chatham Pack:

ChathamPack

Now, that is one COOL dog. If I had to give this photo a caption, it would definitely be this:

“No one on the corner has swagga like us.”

What do you guys think? What caption would you give this picture?  Give us your captions in the Comments!

Also, out of curiosity: which pups are cuter?

Guinness World Records 2012 Create a Caption

Guiness_130x130_9.12 It has become kind of an annual tradition here to post a Create a Caption for the new Guinness World Records book. Two years ago, we had the photo of the guy who holds the record for wearing the most T-shirts at once. Last year it was the kid who holds the world record for balancing the most spoons on his face. They are pretty funny pictures, and your captions for them were hilarious! Well this year, it's dogs. . . skipping rope.

That's right. In the Guinness World Records 2012 book, you will find this picture of the most dogs skipping one rope at the same time.

Writing Prompt: Graduation Bear

Posted by at 4:51 am in Create a Caption, Writing Prompt | Permalink

CreateacaptionGraduation Day. Aaah. Memories in the making. As the school year winds down, maybe some of you guys are graduating from middle school, and moving onto high school? Or graduating from elementary school and moving onto middle school? Or in my case, giving myself a pat on the back for just having made it through another crazy year!

Well, as I was walking around my local party store shopping for a birthday card, all the graduation decorations got me thinking. It also gave me an excuse to dress up my favorite bear. What do you suppose he is thinking?

Here's my caption.

Bear: The diploma is nice, but I sure I hope I got some cold, hard cash in those cards!

Give it a shot, and let me know what you imagine he's thinking. Leave your Caption in the Comments below.

Writing Prompt: Winter Bear

Winter Bear Create a Caption

WinterbearMy town had 2 feet of snow, and some towns near me had 30 inches. My friend who lives in New York said that snow removal was so slow, that the kids on her city street built a snowman in the middle of the street! Hmmm. Fun with blizzards.

Well I took this opportunity to position my favorite bear atop the mountain of snow outside my house. Some of you may remember him in much warmer days from this Create A Caption blog. But now, like all creatures, he has to adapt to the cold weather.

What do you imagine he is thinking? Create a Caption in the Comments below!

Here is my caption:
Dave: You’ve gotta give me time off from this job. The last time I took a shower was last week.
Balthazar: I told you being a sorcerer’s apprentice was going to be hard work!
