Open Caption: Modern Family

Friends, you all did such a great job with these captions! All of them are short, sweet, and funny, just like my Grandma Tutti. Which is to say it was quite difficult choosing our winners! But lo, here are the best entries from yesterday's contest:

From DavidJackson8:
I said I wanted gas prices to shrink. I guess situations like these are why mom always said never to talk with my mouth full.

From Laura2323:
Jimmy: We should've known better than to eat mom's meatloaf.

From Arch_Angel88:
The lesser known Lewis Carroll tale: Through the Plexiglass.

From heartzkidnapper:
Waiting for half-naked Barbie to wash my car at the gas station!

From Miz_Tasha:
How do I know whether I'm regular or super?

If we are going to wrap presents, AND you're going to wear that sweater, there better be booze in this box, and it better get a LOT bigger.

Jay: "I use to think that alcohol fixed everything, but I guess no amount of booze can make that sweater any less annoying."

Cam: "But, it does make that box seem a whole lot bigger!"

Jay: It's not jewelery.

Cam: Oh. Now I'm disappointed.

Cameron: If you're going for the dick in a box joke because I'm gay, then first of all: that's not how it's done. And secondly, I'm very disappointed with the size of your package.

Cam: If that's a ring Jay, I think you and Mitchell need to work out some unresolved issues...

Quick amendment: The scores here have only been tabulated since the beginning of the fall TV season. NOT since the beginning of 2011. Sorry for the confusion.

Hmmm I actually counted myself at one point after a friend of mine noticed I was on a decent consecutive week streak and I believe I sit somewhere around 15-17 separate quotes chosen this year between Ilana Diamond and Stefanie Lee. I don't believe I started participating before 2011 either, could be wrong. Never really has been a big deal to me if I win though, I just like thinking of captions.

Sorry, I should have been more specific. I only started tabulating at the beginning of the fall TV season. Ilana, stopped the open caption contest in May and started it up again in early October. Since this was the beginning of the television "year", I thought it was an appropriate place to start counting.

Wow! I commend you, good sir, for taking the time to make such a list.



I thought my captions were being chosen at a good pace, but I'm nowhere near the top 3.



And I agree with mermayd, seeing a list like this is putting a bit too much pressure on me, hehe.

God! The pressure of appearing on a list! Must try harder........



It always amazes me when people do things like this. It wouldn't occur to me!

Since when have you been keeping tabs? I mean, have you gone through all the Open Caption articles since the beginning of the year? Phew, that's a lot of work!

No, only since October. I thought it would be fun to see how many times the "heavyweights" had won.
