“A funny thing happened on the way to the Apocalypse . . .”
And our three runners-up:
“Aaaahhh, I see you are bringing possum on a stick to the barbecue! That is my favorite!”
“Come now, good sir—I fear it’s much too late for you to reach Williamstown this evening—we offer lovely accommodations at our hilltown chateau just up the road…”
“So yeah, you just follow this road..till you come to a cross road with a buzzard in the tree, never you mind him, just take the left path and keep on it, oh say…for like a day. You’ll pass the swamp of the undead, and the city of the belligerent saints—they do good pizzas there, in my humble opinion. Yeah you keep following that road until you see signs for Kingdom of Rancidity, and you want to take a right, the roads a bit hidden behind a tree that throws apples at you, mind, and then follow that until you reach Wisconsin. You can’t miss it. Stinks of cheese and beer it does. Oh…btw…can I buy your dog?”
Congratulations to Peter Quincy, the cleverest captioner in the Clark’s first caption contest!
