You Are Games: Babylon Sticks Caption Contest III

You Are Games

ArtbegottiFor this installment of You Are Games, we considered holding a spaghetti-cooking competition. You know, one of those contests where people gather from miles around to boil water, throw in some noodles, and see who can prepare a plate of spaghetti in the least amount of time. However, we decided there were too many tricky details to holding a competition of this nature. What kinds of sauce should be allowed? Should there be a time penalty for improperly grating parmesan? And how do we prevent competitors from using linguine (practically the steroids of the pasta world) in their dishes?

bs-contest3-rageandcrosses.pngInstead, we figured it would be easier (and more carb-friendly) to ask you to supply a punchline for another edition of Babylon Sticks, JIG's weekly comic feature created by our very own James Francis. Take a look at the comic to the right. It's humorous on its own, but it needs a caption to really drive the hilarity home. That's where you come in! Submit your caption suggestions as comments below using a Casual Gameplay account (we'll contact the winner via the email address you have in it, so make sure it's up to date). All entries are due by Monday, December 13th at 11:59 PM (GMT-5:00). Multiple entries are allowed, but don't forget to stick with a gaming theme!

Be sure to keep in mind that this is an all-ages site, so keep your captions clean and profanity-free. Plus, some extra notes from our legal department:

  • All entries submitted to this contest become the property of Casual Gameplay.
  • You must be at least 13 years of age to enter.
  • Void where prohibited.
We'll be getting a hold of the winner via email. Now, warm up your funny bone and get to work!

Oh, and don't forget to keep an eye out for hidden gems floating around the website!

You think he's mad now? It's only a matter of time until he finds Farmville.

He's got a big date tonight. I suggested he use a few tic-tacs and he hasn't stopped playing since...

It started with crop circles, but now they're just mocking him!

It was harder to cover up his mistakes when he was playing World of Goo.

"I am gonna X myself. . ." Find the hidden meaning. if you cant then here.

". . ." Is actually "out of existence. . ." and X is in place of erase.
